Barbershop at its best
When i first tried this on my skin and paper, couldn't stand the harsh opening, The magic starts from the heart to the drydown/base notes.. Fantastic old school vibes couldn't stop sniffing my wrist and whiffs.. Grabbed a bottle for a good price.. Would say its one of my best barbershop fragrance alongside Aramis, Habit Rouge, Kouros, Givenchy gentlemen etc

Sourkraut or kimchi
It's funny but the smell immediately reminds me of something edible side dish. It's probably the anise that's doing that. It's a very musculine and pleasant scent that reminds me of old spice A LOT. Like the original old spice deodorant.
I feel like if you want to give out the dad-vibe this frag would do you. It is very mature and dad-like. I really don't see myself wearing this. It's weird though because I like old school frags like Guerlain vetiver and habit rouge.
But this one somehow just feels outdated.

Shaved Man
Azzaro Pour Homme is for me the epitome of a well-groomed man. Freshly shaved, dressed in a suit, he blooms with self-confidence. Successful at work, upright proud walk through a big city. Azzaro Pour Homme is 100% manpower. Due to the dominant earthy note (moss) the man appears strong, resistant and stressresilient. Leather generally stands for luxury. Accordingly, it fits well with the suit's image.
In my opinion, the main components are aniseed in the top note, wood in the heart note and oakmoss in the base. The whole thing is underlined by oriental spices.
The Sillage is great, the durability really outstanding. The bottle, however, nothing special.

Azzaro Pour Homme:
Success, image, manpower, self-confidence, pride, care, power, resilience, taste, style.

Chronologie V - Italian charm that will never go out of time
They say it's made out of 320 ingredients, and I only recognize one - great male classic, a perfume institution with a strong character, full of elegance and italian charm that will never go out of time. This is highly male perfume, which can stand next to Fahrenheit and Kouros. It's not a typical old school perfume, but it's definitely old style perfume.

The projection and stability are great. Originality is a pure 10. The best perfumes and movies were made in the 70's and 80's, and if the movies were perfumes, then the director of this movie would have been F. F. Coppola.

A round thing
About 35 years ago (...) I walked with the parents of my French exchange student through a Munich department store. With 13 years my perfume experiences were limited primarily to grandmothers with corresponding fragrances. In the department store, Jean-Pierre surprised me with an attack in the form of a quite extensive cloud of perfume samples shot down on me, which I tried to escape with little success.

Many days later, I was just sitting in front of my C64 (!), I noticed a smell. I wanted to write "fantastic scent", but it doesn't come close to what I experienced. It just smelled wonderful. But I couldn't figure out where he came from. Again days later this fragrance experience repeated itself. I came up with the culprit: My sweater! A few thought corners later (new detergent? grandmother kiss attacks?) I realized that I was wearing the same sweater as during my Munich stroll with the perfume attack. And I could actually remember the bottle from which Jean-Pierre shot the volleys at me.

I've been using Azzaro pour Homme ever since. And when a few years later a very attractive classmate told me in the disco that I would never be allowed to choose another fragrance because ApH would suit me so well, it was all the more about me
I've been faithful for a long time. Today ApH still smells similar. Sometimes. Since I was increasingly disappointed not to feel this experience of the fragrance anymore, I set out to search for an alternative. A lot of scent tests later (thanks to the Parfumo-Souk and the many reliable Afficionados!) - I always return to ApH.

What do you mean? The answer was given recently by a friendly employee in an independent, exclusive perfumery. When I got advice there and let the lady sniff my ApH-pollinated wrist, she said: "But it's nice and round!"

Bingo. That's ApH still for me. A round thing. The individual fragrances only play a subordinate role here. For the sake of completeness: After spraying on, it initially appears very bitter to me on the skin. This fades away quickly, however, changing into bitter herbs and then releasing increasingly woody aromas, albeit rather light wood. The fragrance's getting fresher, grapefruit? But also a very discreet sweetness (not heavy!), flowery aromas? In addition moist moss and also leather?

Oh, I don't know either. Because what plays a role is not the complexity, but the overall round impression. Even if he is unfortunately only a shadow of his early years. When I attract attention because of my fragrance, I don't want people to think: "He wears a good perfume, though", but "He smells good, though". ApH remains in the background. He is not an aquaticist, not a sweet bomb, not a spice rack, but simply

a round thing.

The perfect men's fragrance?!
My father's fragrance is therefore an important and formative one for me! I love since my childhood and will not change! For me simply the scent of a freshly shaved groomed man! Currently own the 2nd formulation (batch of 96) and compared to the current one I can hardly notice a difference except that it comes across a bit smoother than the current one but the difference is in my opinion not as drastic as with other classics that were castrated mega, even find that the current one is a bit stronger and comes across a bit stronger in the beginning (synthetically pimped up?)! Azzaro forever!

Azzaro Pour Homme - Il Capo Regime della famiglia Profumi Azzaro
Vincent "Vinny" Azaro, born in 1935 from Sicilian parents, is a New York City mobster and recognized captain in the Bonanno crime family. Since the late 1970s, following the murder of Bonanno boss Carmine Galante, Azaro became the capo regime in the Queens faction of the Bonanno family. During the 1990s, Azaro allegedly operated a multi-million-dollar stolen car ring and oversaw the hijacking of cargo at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Azzaro pour Homme, released in 1978, is a well known Parisian fragrance and recognized captain in the Loris Azzaro perfumes family. Azzaro pour Homme has been the major capo regime in the Parfums Azzaro family since the late 1970s. Loris Azzaro couture collections were characterized by extreme seductiveness, which would go on to inspire his first men's fragrance. The alleged inventor of ultra-feminine fashion creations aimed at creating a weapon of seduction. That's how and why this iconic seductive men's fragrance came to life in 1978. This fragrance is maybe the first objectively alluring perfume made exclusively for men.
Loris Azzaro, born February of 1933 from Sicilian parents, died in November 2003 in Paris, and is recognized as a great couturier and Franco-Italian perfumer.
After the original EDT, the Azzaro pour Homme family of fragrances started growing with Azzaro pour Homme EDT Intense in 1992, Azzaro pour Homme Silver Black EDT in 2005, Azzaro pour Homme Elixir in 2009, Azzaro pour Homme L'Eau in 2011, Azzaro pour Homme Night Time in 2012, Azzaro pour Homme Summer in 2013, 2014 and 2015, Azzaro pour Homme Intense in 2015, Azzaro pour Homme Freelight Edition in 2016, Azzaro pour Homme Edition Noire in 2017, and finally Azzaro pour Homme Hot Pepper, Azzaro pour Homme Naughty Leather and Azzaro pour Homme Amber Fever in 2018. In the past couple of years this designer family showed its versatility, quality and market acceptance, and it all begun in 1987.
Lucky me.... I have or had all the flankers released till 2017, and can't wait to get my hands in the three 2018 perfumes (actually I already have Naughty Leather and the amazing Amber Fever).

About what you get inside the flask...
At first glance, Azzaro Pour Homme octagonal glass bottle and ambery color asserts its masculinity all the way.
This Eau de Toilette is a fantastic fougère-spicy-woody fragrance, very old school and quite a demonstration of the masculine gender it addresses with every one of its one hundred milliliters.
The "Azzaro scent" is unique and no one confounds it with any other perfume scent. Its olfactory footprint is mainly defined by three ingredients (notes) that really mark the essence territory and boundaries. They are the key factors of its uniqueness.
1 - Anise - This ingredient creates a blunt warm-cold contrast in addition to texture, depth and solarity. It is originated in the dried fruit of the badian plant, which is harvested in the far East (China, Vietnam, Japan and the Philippines). At least twenty five kilos of dried star anise are required to produced one kilo of essential oil through distillation. It is a precious extract with very sweet, refreshing and spicy licorice notes. It resembles anise but is in fact more pungent.
2 - Lavender - This invigorating flower - small violet flowers - radiates an highly seductive, very clean and quite manly aroma. In Provence, around a hundred producers harvest lavender. They then dry it and extract its essence through rapid distillation: 200 kilos of flowers are required to produce one kilo of essential oil. Soft, floral and slightly fruity, lavender has a rounded aroma of amber with a hint of coumarin.
3 - Vetiver - At once dry and moist, fresh and warm, woody and intense, this root exudes a unique sensuality with its bitter chocolate and smoky facets scent. It is grown in Java, Madagascar and Brazil (among others), yet Haiti's production is preferred by perfumers for its fragrant quality. One kilo of essential oil requires 200 kilos of uprooted, dried and cleaned raw material. The results: An extract with characteristic dry woody notes with earthy, smokey and nutty tones.

What you will not forget...
After an "Azzaro pour Homme experience" you will remember how aromatic the fragrance is, with both fresh and soft spices blended with woody, floral and earthy accords. You will enjoy it for more than eight or nine hours and people within four or five feet will notice you for sure.

As with everything concerning our terrestrial life, let's try to measure Azzaro pour Homme:
________________________________________________________________________________________
- Opening.....................9.5 (really pleasant unique fougére opening)
- DryDown....................8.5 (very good- mossy, leathery and sweet)
- Longevity....................9.0 (up to 9 hours on my skin, with 3 sprays)
- Sillage..........................7.5 (sillage peaks up to 5 feet; It projects heavily almost for 2.0 hours)
- Versatility....................8.0 (quite versatile, expressing itself better in Spring and Fall, at ease in Winter days and Summer nights)
- Usability......................8.5 (it's really a "use it almost anywhere" fragrance, but avoid gym, seaside or any kind of sweating activities)
- Compliments..............8.5 (This scent competes with other compliment magnets. You will smell elegant, clean, fresh, sexy and even cute; but... yes... It has been around for some time and its DNA is easily recognisable)
- Uniqueness.................9.5 (It has got an unique DNA that you will not mistake with other perfumes; You may consider just its flankers as similar scents, and just maybe some vibes shared with the also magnific Aramis Tuscany)
- Quality.........................9.0 (High quality ingredients; gorgeous heavy glass bottle; great spray)
- Presentation...............8.5 (beautiful, sober, masculin flask with visible good taste details; questionable cap)
- Price.............................9.0 (€ 20.0 for a 100 ml tester flask, € 25.00 for a non tester flask)
________________________________________________________________________________________
- Average:......................8.69/10.00
between 7 and 8 => above average;
between 8 and 9 => recommended;
equal or bigger than 9 => don't miss it;

Opinion on "Azzaro pour Homme":
Take my advice and lose yourself in a haze of this crisp and complex men’s fragrance. This intoxicating Eau de Toilette has a wide assortment of refreshing notes that combine into one luxurious, robust manly scent that appeals to anyone near you.
Recommended? Yes!
Blind buy worthy? No! ... as I have written, this scent is... intoxicating. Try it first! And, if you do buy it, do remember that you receive a piece of french perfumery history besides the fragrance itself. I just love this scent!

For Dad
Hey,dad! Today I am writing down my memories of your signature scent and my associated memories of you. A signature scent is a scent that underlines or accentuates a personality. What is not relevant for me personally, because a fragrance does not underline a personality. Either you have them or you don't. You definitely have her, and so does Azzaro pour Homme. I grew up with this scent by your side. When I was a little boy, I didn't like him that much. When you were getting ready in the bathroom in the morning you always had to choose between two fragrances. Remember that? The white bottle with the shuttle on it, which probably reminded you of your time at sea or Azzaro pour Homme. It was mostly Azzaro pour Homme. Everyone loved that smell on you. Mom especially! I didn't think Azzaro pour Homme was beautiful back then, at least not as a child and not right after spraying on. The top note was tingling in the nose. The sharp lavender and the stinging bergamot. The anise that always reminded me of liquorice, which I still don't like. If you came home late in the afternoon, you could be hugged again because the heart note had long unfolded in fullness. You smelled so good, like we were walking into a forest. So beautifully earthy, freshly spicy and tangy green. Earthy patchouli and rooty vetiver and the scent of tangy and sour juniper berries met you in the early evening when Azzaro pour Homme was probably at the base stage I liked your fragrance the most. If I sat next to you and you repaired my broken toy or my bike or whatever else had to be done. This warm, spicy and flattering scent of oakmoss and buttery-soft leather and a hint of amber emanates from you. As incredibly flattering as your smile. Wonderful! I still love these notes and I associate so many beautiful things with Azzaro pour Homme at your side. Birthdays, christmas, family celebrations and my slow waking up with you, when they asked you what they could give you, you always said: "Azzaro! That's all you ever wanted. Just a bottle of that scent. You have always been very modest, I have rarely met a man in my now very advanced age, to whom Azzaro pour Homme fit so well as to you. That scent is you. Very mature, male, sovereign, charming, charismatic and infinitely warm-hearted. Azzaro pour Homme is the same for me, I never bought this fragrance because it belongs to you...to you! I had and have too much respect for Azzaro pour Homme. he does not belong to me yet, not yet. whenever I want to perceive him I just have to drive to you, look you in the eyes and hug you. Azzaro pour Homme will be there too! Only one hopefully still very distant day, when we will not be able to embrace us anymore, I will get me the first flacon Azzaro pour Homme. only then the time is ripe for it, only then I will take up your fragrance heritage, only then my name will stand in the infinite, long list of men who already own him here.If one day you should not be there anymore, I don't want to have anything from you until the last, opened bottle of Azzaro pour Homme which will stand in your bathroom and the memory of a wonderful man who wore it......
I love you...Dad!
I love your scent!
I love Azzaro pour Homme!

Fresh, spicy, aromatic - ingenious
This fragrance has been around since the 80s. Of course he was reformulated as it is unfortunately so usual. Nevertheless, it is still unmistakably the same fragrance. The durability and the Sillage are really good and for the meanwhile favorable price with the on-line purchase one can spray during the day also calmly times generously. Unlike perhaps Joop pour Homme, you don't really have to be afraid of overdose with this fragrance. I use this fragrance especially in the office and the response is good with all colleagues, most ask what a fresh, pleasant fragrance it is. Above all, the mild anise in the top note at the beginning is well received by almost everyone. I would now also go less into the heart and base notes, only that the fragrance develops but is all the time an aromatic, spicy companion, which is present but never intrusive. You can't go wrong with this fragrance in the office, on a date or at a family celebration. The Sillage is well perceptible with me and lasts also certainly more than 6 hours, so arm length in approximately. Afterwards, however, it is still clearly perceptible above the skin. Even if it may not be the same fragrance as it was then, it is still damn good and can be used for almost any approach.

Hidden treasure
This was my first perfume that I bought with the money I earn in my first job, in summer holidays, when I was 17. The first time I smell it I promise myself that I will buy it. Until now he never left my collection, a must have that young generation must discover. Very versatile, the anise and lavender are some of the many stars of this scent. You must try it to understand how he make you feel special. I don't have that sensation with other fragrances. It was a mainstream fragrance in the 80's, but now is a hidden treasure. Take a look in the similar perfumes, you won't find nothing similar because you can't compare it with other perfumes. Unique masterpiece!

Fortunately, there are few fougères to meet men's needs. I could be wrong, but this is the fougère perfume par excellence. Barbershop vibe!
