Lots of synthetic, but I still like it
Azzaro, better known for "serious" fragrances ala Pour Homme, Chrome and other rather higher quality creations. But Azzaro also wanted to jump on the youthful synthetic track in 2016 with this Wanted. After Decibel, the second of this brand, which is rather out of line and is intended to appeal to a young audience. I'm not surprised Wanted gets off so badly here. From the style he goes already very strongly in the Invictus direction. If you don't like the Invictus, you probably won't like it either. It is not a copy, but it polarizes similarly with its synthetics.
I have known him for some time now and now he has made it into my collection. I'd have liked to buy 30ml, but I didn't have it. So there was the 50ml bottle for just over 50 euros. Maybe a little overpriced with the fragrance concept, but with really good performance.
The bottle is trashy for many. I like him. Here, too, Invictus was probably copied and a bottle was taken that catches the eye and polarizes. Similar to the trophy. I find the cartridges original and the bottle is not even cheaply processed. In reality, it's more valuable than in pictures.
In terms of fragrance, it is really not a fragrance that everyone likes. If someone doesn't like the smell, I can understand it as well. It's already a polarizing brew, much like Invictus. In my opinion, Invictus is not a fragrance twin from the point of view of DNA, but the direction is the same. A lot of synthetic from the beginning to the end. It becomes more gentle in the further process.
It starts with a lot of bitter lemon paired with a strong spice. Ginger and cardamom. Although this tart lemon note covers most of it in the beginning. The top note really needs getting used to and many will already copy the fragrance now. As it progresses, it becomes gentler and slightly sweeter, with the sweetness remaining within limits. A cardamom tonka bean blend is coming through. Nothing unusual, but pleasant to wear. The Wanted DNA from the start remains, but becomes much softer. In addition, a slight vetiver note, which also does the creation good. In the end I find this Wanted much harsher than Invictus.
Altogether a modern but also very synthetic creation. But he hits the nerve of the bestseller lists. In many sales lists the numbers are really good. Here one would like to address quite clearly the young audience. What I appreciate about this creation is that it is light and easy to wear. I think the fragrance has something to do with that nice tart note. Perhaps not the best choice in everyday life, but leisure and nightlife can convince him, even if he is no longer so unique as a bestseller.
The performance is better than rated here. Sillage is good through and through and remains so for many hours. The shelf life is at least 8 hours, which is quite decent.
I'm not surprised that he doesn't arrive in a rather niche forum. In real life, however, it should go down very well, especially with younger people who prefer the stylish casual look. No milestone, but a carefree modern fragrance.
