Has anyone tried this ?
I saw it in a shop, but no tester. It's not even listed in most perfume directories.

It's by Revlon and is also known as CHAZ. Name was changed to CIAZ for the Italian market.

There is a version on the French Amazon for 98 Euros.

Lots of versions and different bottle caps -- it's a 'rabbit hole'

You should have just pulled the trigger on it :wink:

I've got an atomizer (meaning propellant-based), and while I really like the scent, the sprayer is terribly wonky. So I bought a bundle of small sprayers that were being sold as a lot because they were dirt cheap and I figured, surely at least one of them must work well. I haven't tested them yet, though. Anyway, funky sprayers notwithstanding, Chaz/Ciaz is excellent value for the money, as are a number of early Revlon masculines.

Could you cite any similar fragrances ?

OK, I'm wearing it today. I think for comparisons to other fragrances, your best bet is just to peruse the reviews in the BN directory entry. (One reviewer compares it to Marbert Man, which I've never tried, while another references Balenciaga Portos, which I've worn once.) I will say it's a bold/thick scent, spicy and woody throughout with a heavy mossy/musky base. There's amber, too, but while it adds a bit of round sweetness, it's not cloying, nor is it at all vanillic. The lavender and citrus on top hint at barbershop, but I think this is too robust for that designation. The Tom Selleck hairy-chested ad campaign was pretty much on the money. I think it smells great, better for fall/winter. But, if you're worried about loud or "old man" scents, it might not be for you. (As I'm a loud old man, I'll keep right on wearing it.)

Per the reviews, stick with the vintage Revlon blue and gold bottles. (My 9ml Ciaz doesn't say Revlon, but it's definitely that era; perhaps a deal was struck with an Italian distributor to remove the Revlon name.) Apparently, the subsequent Jean Philippe version has been watered down.

Thank you very much! It seems to be what I'm used to wear! :smiley:
