Reviews of Azzaro pour Homme Amber Fever

Nice. Thereís no way you can go wrong here for $30 and it seems like Amber Fever was definitely one of the better menís designer releases to quietly emerge in 2019. Its performance is decentónot great, but not terrible, as it works for about 4 to 6 hours, projecting at a steady, medium reach for a few hours before fading and resting close to the skin. So what does it smell like? The best way I can describe it is that itís a dark, sweet amber-based fragrance, in the vein of something like D&G The One EDP, with a spicy edge, that has subtle notes of chocolate and an even more subtle hint of Cola. Indeed, thereís something about Amber Fever that reminds me of a dessert-like soft drinkóa chocolate egg cream or something along those lines. But itís not over-the-top or literal in any way, itís just the particular way that the Amber is spiced which gives it that effect. I might even go as far to say that Amber Fever is like a more mainstream, less-polarizing version of LíInstant de Guerlain Extreme. While it lacks the intense patchouli kick of the latter and seems devoid of citrus for the most part, it works with the cocoa note in a similar fashion, creating a sort of dry, earthy-but-fizzy chocolate kick. I donít think the two are necessarily that similar, but if youíre familiar with LIDGE it can help give you an idea of what AF smells like.

Amber Fever is medium-bodied and has a rather dry, lightweight presence that works in its favor. Itís easy to wear in all climates and never feels heavy or sticky or thick, and therefore wonít bog you down if you accidentally apply a little too much or wear it when itís hotter or more humid than ideal. Iíd consider The One EDP its main competition, and if Im being honest, I probably like AF more. My issue with The One EDP is that sometimes the Amber/tobacco blend smells almost too sweet, and even oily. The dryness of Amber Fever on the other hand, keeps it from becoming like that, and although it gets sweeter over the course of a wearing, the bitter, earthy cocoa in its opening keeps the sweetness in check. If I have any criticism of AF, itís that it becomes a lot sweeter as it develops, losing some of the favorable balance I just spoke of. Still, its sweetness never becomes overwhelming or cloying, and Iím sure plenty of people will enjoy this part of its development, as it definitely gives Amber Fever some romantic appeal, and some of that Ďcome closer so I can smell youí allure characterized by popular ďdate scents.Ē At the same time, the fact AF doesnít take itself too seriously, or project too thickly and powerfully at any time, makes it fine for wearing casually, whether to work or just hanging out.

In conclusion, Azzaro Amber Fever is a solid release and a good choice for an inexpensive scent that is warm and sweet, but also somewhat unique in its addition of a chocolate note and the nice balance it creates between sweet and earthy-dry. Its medium to light bodied density makes it easy and fun to wear, and it manages to avoid some of the pitfalls of its main competitor, The One EDP. At its current price point itís worth exploring Amber Fever to see how it works for you. Final rating, a solid 8/10 and a definite thumbs up.

Tried all of the line, and this one reigns supreme. Perfect date fragrance for warmer climate, but could easily work in cold weather too. Imagine CK in 2 u, but more modern, that's Amber Fever. The cocoa note is more superior here too. Surprisingly not too much chemical crap, or fake woods in this one. This won't blow anyone's socks off, but it's certainly good. It does remind me a very small bit of Azzaro pour Homme, as does most of the line, but I can't quite pinpoint what I'm smelling that recalls it.

Similar to: Ckin2u, Just Cavalli, 125 Years Your Companion For Life (Victorinox).

Warm, almost boozy vanilla and amber in the opening. Not getting much of the original Azzaro pour Homme in the opening. That comes later with the clary sage in the drydown and provides some nice freshness. Still feels more modern than old school but itís still a nice nod.

This isnít overly heavy or sweet. Quite wearable and versatile, although Iíd say itís probably best for cooler weather given the emphasis on the smooth and warm amber.

Performance is good with moderate projection and longevity into the 8 hour range.

Another daring jump for Lorris Azzaro! Amber Fever is rich, comforting, and a wonderful rethink of the now legendary Azzaro pour Homme original.

Clary sage has its own leathery, lavenderish amber quality that is a great element for Amber Fever. Cocoa adds a warm, gourmand chocolate powder that is slightly aromatic in its own way. Amber holds this all together, with a touch of honey sweetness.

I'd label this an aromatic oriental, with none of the dna of the original (the Hot Pepper (purple bottle) flanker, also by Azzaro, also departs totally from that dna). It envelopes with a warm goodness that just feels great.

I applaud Azzaro for this and the Hot Pepper flankers: Courageous departures from the tried and true ApH formula, keeping the bottle designs yet filling them with new concepts that actually work well.
