If you're a fan of Azzaro Pour Homme, and you've never tried this fragrance, the fact that the word "L'Eau" is in its name is probably making you skeptical. Don't be. Azzaro Pour Homme L'Eau is not only a true flanker of Azzaro Pour Homme, but it's also a stunning fragrance in its own right.
It's a fresh aromatic fougere done to perfection, and in a
way that will please not only fans of clean, fresh scents, but also hardcore
fans of Azzaro Pour Homme. That's
because you can smell the connection to Azzaro Pour Homme immediately. It's a complex fragrance, and it smells as if
Azzaro Pour Homme were used as its foundation upon which to build a cleaner,
brighter and fresher scent.
At its core, you can smell the warm, aromatic scent of
Azzaro Pour Homme. Added to that base
accord is a variety of bright citrus notes like Yuzu, bergamot, lemon and
grapefruit, which add a nice spray of clean freshness when you first put it
on. The citruses then segue into what
separates this fragrance from Azzaro Pour Homme: the "L'Eau" or
watery texture of the overall scent.
It's done perfectly. Unlike most
aquatic fragrances, Azzaro Pour Homme L'Eau has a mineralic, watery texture and
smell that doesn't at all smell synthetic or like chlorine in a pool. In fact, I doubt there is any Calone in this
perfume at all. It has the fatty, oily
smell and transparency of cyclamen aldehyde, but I don't know for sure what
material creates the watery effect here.
Whatever it is, it blends beautifully with the rest of the fragrance and
smells totally natural.
So basically this scent smells like a brighter and cleaner
Azzaro Pour Homme, with a watery aura.
Fans of macho powerhouse fragrances shouldn't be afraid of this
description, because it's still a very substantial and strong fragrance, and
its relation to Azzaro Pour Homme is obvious.
Sillage is very good, and longevity is outstanding. I
didn't think it was possible to successfully create a more transparent version
of Azzaro Pour Homme, but Azzaro managed to nail it perfectly. Azzaro Pour Homme L'Eau is easily one of the
greatest perfume flankers ever, ranking right up there with the greats like
Kouros Fraicheur and Sport de Paco Rabanne.
MY RATING: 10/10
