Reedition of the fragrance Azzaro from 1974, known under the name Azzaro Couture, was presented a few days ago in Paris, while wider distribution and sale are announced for October 2008. Presentation of this perfume took place in the Bristol hotel (Rue Faubourg Saint Honoré), and was accompanied by a fashion show of Parisian boutique Azzaro.

Original bottle of the Azzaro Couture fragrance was created in shape of a ring, which was inspired by Salvador Dali's painting. Colour scheme was changed from black to white, and is narrowing towards the bottom. Each of them is unique, since it is hand-made. The glass part is hand-made, while the top is crowned with 120 Swarovski crystals.

The bottle is available in two versions, Couture Prestige and Couture Cristal, both in the amount of 75 ml. 100ml Couture Refill edition with a small funnel is also available.

Original version of the perfume was created in cooperation with perfumer Maurice Thibond, as a chypre floral composition. Reedition was created thanks to successful cooperation with perfumer Aurelien Guichard (Givaudan), and is combined as less 'heavy' and more 'floral'.

This perfume includes as many as 5 absolutes, and these are absolutes of: mimose, May rose, iris, ambrette seed and galbanum. The difference, when compared with the previous edition from 1974, is in that some ingredients are excluded, while this, more modern edition became more sparkling and glamorous.

Azzaro Couture Fragrance Reviews

This is an interesting floral/fruity chypre. It is largely linear, not a common trait for a chypre, and while it is sweet, the sweetness lies in the floral notes and not the fruity notes. The rose is candied, but the fruit note, somewhere between melon and pear, is tart and sharp. There are many notes listed (rose, bergamot, mimosa, ambrette seed, galbanum, patchouli.) Somehow they create a nose-gestalt that reads as a light chypre, a floral/fruity and a spicy musk. The spiciness reads as a nicely placed pepper note reminiscent of the one in Caron’s Parfum Sacré. It lines up beautifully with the rose and the fruit. It cuts the rose’s sweetness, gives the fruit its green edge and lasts from start to finish.

The linearity tells me that Azzaro Couture might not so much be an ‘actual’ chypre (ie. with oakmoss) as an implied or suggested chypre. Bergamot and the pepperiness give a hint of that rough bitterness that I associate with chypre. The great thing about linearity here is that it stops the clock at an accord that reminds me of the heartnotes of Diorella---almost turned fruit balanced with a dark raspiness.

AC doesn’t have great projection and it lasts better on the strip than on my skin. Although linear for the most part, AC’s constituent elements (flower, fruit, musky spice) remain distinct, and even into the drydown there is no blurring of the lines.

The opening is hard to describe it's
fruity with metallic nuances. I'm not crazy
about the bottle design it's homely in it's appearance i think what's making that
metallic smell is probably the Amberette
seedlings and the Mimosa notes is making it metallic those two just dominate the other notes you barely smell the rose
and iris in it these are one of those
perfumes that are hard the review.
