Average, but still better than Sauvage
Despite Azzaro being one of the french houses that releases masculine fragrances on a regular basis on the market it has been 10 years that it does not invest in something with pretensions to be a pillar within their line, a perfume with major investment in marketing and advertising and with a release that did not spare money to impress the press and influential in the virtual world. This is a good indication that the brand would not risk in aromatic territories that could be a fiasco or linger years to fall in the tastes of the audience (such as iris in Dior Homme or agarwood in YSL M7). And indeed Wanted to just strive to, as its name indicates, be desired / appreciated by a large audience, which in my opinion is geared more to a man between 25-35 years.

Wanted in a way bet in what is today the role that aquatic scentes were in the 90s: the musky woody fragrance of citrus touches. The brand invests in a special extraction sicilian lemon and combines with a fresh aldehydic touch and a moderate aquatic aspect. The most interesting part is that the lemon accord for some angle sometimes reminds you of a pineapple at the right point of juiciness. Like many modern men's fragrance, the transition is not very marked for the base notes, keeping the water fresh citrus aspect of the opening with a transparent and bright floral aroma and a controlled tonka sweetness. Finally, we have a combination of musks and synthetic materials of vetiver and ambergris which create a pleasant base but no specific definition of any raw material.

Wanted is not the kind of scent that excites me because it all seems too studied to be very nice, very easy to please. But however, there is a certain elegance that he has and is aligned with the advertising campaign in the James Bond styke. Sometimes its smell brings me the elegance of Prada Amber Pour Homme but without the complexity of it. However, compared with a perfume like Dior Sauvage, Wanted is saved by in no time sound so generic to the point of looking like a deodorant or a cheap perfume. It is an unerring aim at pleasing (even without excited) and that, in my opinion, is likely to be a success for the brand.
