Latest Reviews of Chrome Legend

No brainer for me. Dumb reach, blind buy, done deal.

First blue scent I've tried (and I'm new to this) that actually smells aquatic. It's fizzy, salty, breezy and “blue”. Some apple, some mint, cucumber, tonic, and then a soft honeycomb dry down.

Easy gym scent. Beach, lake, boat, dock, whatever. In spring and summer it's can't miss.

Edit: upon trying and testing a number of other aquatics, I stand by this review. Chrome Legends initial blast is very oceanic, and a good wake up call. It is a little harsh out of the bottle, but it gets better and better as it calms down. The dry down is smooth and pleasant.

I know enough now not to elevate this above Voyage or Cool Water or probably any number of blue juices, but this is still worth having. Especially when you want something less sweet and a little more astringent.

i think this been reformulated as the caps been replaced on the new bottles plus the negative reviews .chrome legend the old version is very refreshing with strong apple

Apple and a slightly utter orange combine to form the opening blast. It is bright and of a cool freshness.

In the drydown a salty undertone emerges, with an aquatic tone attached to it. There is a metallic feel also, also this is counterbalanced later on by a restrained sweetness that is owed to white musks that are added it. The salty and citrus components gradually peter out with time.

The sweet side is further enhanced in the base, when a tonka impression is added, combined with a nonspecific woodsiness.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

A pleasant scent for cooler summer days, with an interesting conceptualisation of the idea that its name conjures up. The similarities between this creation and Nautica Voyage are obvious. This Azzaro is not bad, but a bit too generic at stages. 2.75/5.

This is complete garbage, and I would add that it wasn't always like this. Years ago it did smell like a fresh fruity aquatic, albeit synthetic; something in the territory of Nautica Voyage. Now this reeks of harsh metallic aromachemicals, with unbalanced blending. Now it's in the same camp as Ferragamo's Incanto Blue, though the latter is worse.

For what its worth, Nautica Voyage is a much superior alternative based on current versions. Seriously, even Aqua Velva Ice Blue smells much nicer for a fraction of the cost. Yes, it's in the same general category as Acqua di Gio, but the difference in quality is about the same as the difference in price.

Generic fast food citrus opening collapsing to something peppery and cheap. Sea salt? Does it make any difference? Scrubber.

Fragrance: 5/10
Projection: 7/10
Longevity: 7/10

Similar to Chrome but with better performance and a salty beach note. Thought it was originally coconut or sun tan lotion. I like this better than Nautica Voyage but feel like they are similar.

Performance is really good. Projection is above average for the first 5-6 hours and then the final skin scent phase lasts almost all day.

'Chrome Legend' by Azzaro is a very pleasant surprise and blind buy that I am very glad I took a chance on. Being a fan of the original 'Chrome', I figured this can't be a bad fragrance. I could never really wear the original version anymore as its been played out, advertised, and beaten to death for the last twenty years. Everyone knows it, so I try to not be that obvious when selecting a cologne.

The initial blast smells exactly like seawater, the ocean, saltwater. It has this strange cooling feeling because of the scent. You literally FEEL a good ten degrees cooler just smelling or spraying this stuff on. I get citrus notes, a bit of moss and vetiver, but an overwhelming smell of ocean water. It took a few wears to appreciate the complexity and uniqueness of this, but several weeks later I absolutely love the scent.

It has some similarity to the original Chrome, but is definitely less metallic, more refined. As it settles down, the citrus and sea notes match the vetiver and cedar and it screams spring and summer. A fantastic scent to wear in the high heat and humid environments. It is a fresh, aquatic with a masculine undertone that doesn't offender or irritate anyone. Overall, solid performance.

With a liberal dose of a dozen sprays (neck, shoulders, wrists and chest), I am getting 7-10 hours of longevity, with a subtle trail after the first six or seven hours. It projects fairly good, and sillage is good for the first half of its life.

I only use this in the warmer months and on the hottest of days, at the beach or at the pool, or just out on the terrace having drinks. It works perfectly in these situations and gathers a fair amount of compliments. For the price this commands, if you love the smell of the ocean, or are a fan of sporty aquatics, this will easily be an instant favorite of yours and is blind buy worthy.

I thought I would like this because of the note list, but I do not. It is very synthetic on the first spray. And for me, this doesn't fade. Sillage and longevity were also very poor, I had to reapply twice in an eight hour period. Extremely disappointing.

Finally a Azzaro scent that I really enjoy! Was on the fence and reluctant about trying this because of the stomach churning experience I had with the original Chrome:( So glad a friend gave me a small decant to try.

Wow, what a wonderful surprise! A very nicely done and unique aromatic fruity/tea scent! Does it smell synthetic? Well yeah, a little....but not enough that it's off putting IMHO.

Haven't worn this in warm weather yet, but longevity seems to be very good for this type of fragrance. Can't speak on projection yet since it's only in the 40-50*'s at the moment. But I have no reason not to believe what others all echo about it being excellent.

And I just scored a 4.2oz bottle for under $20 shipped to me. At that price point, this is right up there in terms of the best bang for your buck scents.

I am beginning to believe that Azzaro can do no wrong. I used to absolutely hate this fragrance and wasted my first bottle wearing it on casual days. But I started to receive a lot of compliments from women (even those whom I did not know). Could they have had a better perspective on what they were smelling?

So, I picked up a second bottle wondering why everyone loved it so much, as I felt that at times it was almost cloying. I took it with me on my most recent Ireland trip last summer, and I finally understood it. Chrome Legend is probably the best summer/aquatic fragrance I have ever smelled. Stop wearing it during the winter months.

I think that Chrome Legend is better than Creed GIT and Silver Mountain Water to which Chrome Legend is very similar. Further, at a fraction of the price, it's a no brainer.

Chrome legend is modern and fruity. strong friends asked what i was wearning and told me i smelled so fresh and young!

but nothing special for me middle / base notes are much more better than top notes.the longevity is very good on my skin and quite good for hot days summer. anyway i prefer original version!

Buysblind has this scent nailed down exactly. The synthetic portion for me comes right after application and leaves during the middle. This has a reordered construction to prevent it from smelling like so many other blue or citric scents.
