rbaker's Review of Azzaro pour Homme Elixir by Azzaro

The opening blast sports a triad of bergamot, lavender and coumarin, but soon develops a slightly sweet licorice aroma that is characterised by a distinctly boozy component.

In the drydown I get an added vanilla impression that, again, adds some more sweetness, but in general this creation is neither too intrusively sweet nor cloying.

The base sees the licorice gone, and replaced by a prominent benzoin, has a fruity-powdery undercurrent.

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

This flanker for warmer autumn days has quite little to do with the original, and is not without an interesting touch. On the other hand it is rather egregiously synthetic and many constituents are a bit too generic. 2.75/5.
