I've smelled all three of Azzaro's "Pure" fragrances: Pure Cedrat, Pure Lavender and Pure Vetiver. None of them are good, but this is the worst of the three. It's a chemical, boring woody citrus, like a million others, and worse than most.
Azzaro couldn't resist the
temptation to throw a synthetic marine note into the mess, could they? To add to the misery, there's a disgusting
metallic note in there as well. When I
smell this, I shiver, and I mean that in a bad
way. It's the same shiver I get
when I lick a metal fork or a coin.
This smells almost exactly
like the awful and thankfully discontinued OS Signature by Old Spice, only even more
synthetic smelling. I get about five
minutes of cedrat, then four or five hours of a hammering metallic marine note
that makes this smell like pool water in a metal bowl.
I can't think of anything
else to write about this disaster, because it's also a very simple fragrance,
and I've already described everything this scent has to offer. Pure Cedrat is a terrible fragrance.
MY RATING: 3/10
