Better than the original?
As an Azzaro Pour Homme fan and collector, this fragrance is a must-have. If you are not a collector, I would prefer the original. This one has the original Azzaro PH DNA with a lot of bitter orange on top. It's a nice scent and nice to have, but I would start with the original to appreciate this yet more special edition noire even more. For me, a rock solid piece for the colder days.
