Sugar Melon, Flirty Felon
This fragrance had the potential to be SO MUCH more. But I certainly can't fault Azzaro's marketing team for creating yet another fruity concoction on the heels of their wildly successful Wanted line. That is....excluding Wanted Tonic. Bleh.

Wild Mint starts off as you would expect - with a good dose of spearmint, married ever-so cleverly with an impossibly strong sweet, fruity melon and MAYBE a dash of piney...something. The effect is so obviously modern-synthetic that it somehow reminds me of a popular shampoo - Garnier Fructis maybe? Herbal Essences? Something along those lines anyway. Don't get me wrong, it's certainly attractive despite its simplicity, and very much a potential compliment getter among those with an insistent sweet tooth.

But just like that, 80% of the mint vanishes within the first 5 minutes and in comes the sugar. Tablespoons of it - transforming Wild Mint into a wildly SWEET and slightly piney melon for the rest of its baffling longevity. "Baffling" because although it projects extremely well for 90 minutes, it suddenly takes a nose dive into skinscent territory at 2 hours and remains there for what seems like an abnormally long period of time, as if you spilled melon syrup on your body and just couldn't wash it off. But I suppose that's the intent with some of these patented molecules. So I dunno...props for that?

The truth is, I was really hoping for more mint, pine, patchouli and vetiver. I don't even get any bergamot in the opening. This stuff could've been a modern green masterpiece if this was the late 70s or early 80s. Instead, what we get is a fragrance dominated by a single, almost aquatic sugary fruit accord riding on top of a barely perceptible synthetic fir. Oh yes, and some mint. For 5 minutes. And it's nowhere near the quality you would find in say, Cartier's Roadster or Guerlain's L'homme line.

But I wonder if that's to be expected from designer brands these days? If so, then all hail the diabetic. Or at the very least the candy gods that keep us sufficiently dosed to make it through another day on caffeine and 2 hours of sleep without losing our minds. Who knows, perhaps sweet fragrances alone will one day replace our beloved saccharine-laidened treats to give us the same high we so regularly crave and paradoxically deny ourselves. What a world that would be...

So if you're expecting a quality, bright, minty-green fragrance, I would look elsewhere. Wild Mint is essentially the smell of a hard, green candy. It doesn't even have anything in common with the original Pour Homme (a masterpiece IMO), despite technically being marketed as a flanker. Then again, if lavender and anise isn't your thing and you want modern fruity sugar water, then look no further. Azzaro has you covered. Along with every other designer brand apparently. What else is new?

A flanker that has little to do with Azzaro PH. It starts with a simple mint and ends with a little bit unnatural chocolate.
