The fragrance that started my journey
I used to have only have 1 fragrance at a time that used for all occasions, day or night, summer or winter. It was the beginning of 2019 when i first got my nose on Azzaro Wanted by Night. Probably it was around the same time i started watching fragrance reviews on youtube and found out about this one from Jeremy Fragrances Channel.

I didnt like it at first in the beginning but it grew on me over time and opened the pandora's box. 3 years later, i have sniffed over hundreds of perfumes and owned almost closed to 100 but this one will have that special place in my heart.

Back then i didnt realize but this was a unique fragrance on its own way. Opens up with a little sweet with spicy nuances of cumin and cinnamon and drys down beautifully to a medium sweet spicy woody tobacco scent.

Probably this the most unique among all flankers of Wanted and is my favorite from the line.

Absolute great value for money.

Definition of Beast Mode
I had a 2019 formulation and this is by far the strongest and the loudest fragrance I owned. With Black to Black 1 spray goes a long way. I only apply it on my neck because it projects and projects and can be too strong. It's a room filler. If you wanna assert your dominance and be the loudest in the room, this is your weapon, it will cut through all other fragrances. Absolute beast mode.

As for the scent its rose dominant scent and it will continue that way for the first 3-4 hour mark until the oud and other darker notes comes to play.

Eventually had it let it go because it was almost too strong for my own sake.

Not everyone's cup of tea, sample first.

Ambré Extrême is ATH version of a classic dressed up French perfumery.

This fragrance was not even under may radar at all and I first received a 2ml sample of Ambré Extrême in another order and i was quite surprised with how good it smelled and performed.

If you enjoy Amber fragrances that has vanilla, tonka bean and benzoin notes such as Dior Ambré Nuit, and MFK Grand Soir you will love this one as well. Ambré Extrême is Ambre Nuit on steroids with ATH twist. If you already have Ambre Nuit or Grand Soir, Ambré Extrême can be a little redundant.

How it smells? Japanese Yuzu and Bergamot bring the brightness and sparkly qualities while benzoin and amber brings the warm, powdery and resinous facets making this fragrance an amazing opulent and upper class fragrance that can be used all year round as a signature scent as ATH describe this one as a "posh boy" fragrance.

Too sad to see this one gone but im glad that i got a full bottle before it was discontinued.

It wasn't a love at first sight. I didnt think much of it when i first smelled but the more i used the more it grew on me. Maybe the name wasn't so suitable for the scent profile but all females (friends & dates) who have smelled this on me loved it commenting "oohhh you smell good" or "i can still smell your perfume" 1 hour after saying farewell.

The imprinting on ATH fragrances are incredible. A normal hug will transfer it to the other person allowing them to remember you with this smell for the next hours or maybe next day depending on the duration of the encounter!

No more words are needed. Too bad that its not available anymore.

Will always be my ATH favorite.

I prefer the pre-reformulated version.
I had a 10ml of the original Slut that before it was reformulated and i really liked that version. At first sniff, it wasn't what i expected from a fragrance named Slut because it smelled fresh, citrussy and floral which I define as the complete opposite than the name refers.

Reformulated version has substituted Lemon note with Apple at the top. Petitgrain note which gave bitterness to the original slut was substituted with Strawberry in the Mid. The base remains the same.

So although this sounds like a small tweak, it made a very big different in the first 2-3 hours of the life of the fragrance. Once it had a citrusy fresh bitter in the opening and mid and now it has been quite sweetened by apple and strawberry. Now, the reformulated version do suits better the name with this additional sweetness. After the the 3-4 hour mark, both original and reformulated version are identical although the dry down of the new version is tad bit sweeter.

As today, original version is no longer available so if you had the original version and looking to buy the reformulated version, please consider these changes. I love them both, maybe the original version better but they are both solid fragrances that last a very long time, get stronger as you heat up, specially on high heat and transfer/imprint your scent to your loved ones and their clothes on close encounters.
