Rated 4.73 out of 5 stars
Initially, when I received my sample of Azzaro The Most Wanted, I was a little skeptical that this was for me. The bottle has a gun theme to it being shaped like a revolver cylinder. I just could not imagine it would line up with the Citrus scents that I usually go for like Polo Blue, Tom Ford, etc. When I opened up the package, I sprayed a little on my arm and my wife's arm. Before the fragrance dried, I took a whiff and was disappointed. I felt like it was worse than that bottle of Dior Sauvage that I got myself a while back. After giving it a little more time, I checked again and it settled into something more subtle, but I could not quite point out the leading notes. My wife is usually quick to tell me when something stinks but when she checked it out, she did not offer an opinion which is actually promising believe it or not.
For the next couple of days, I wore it over the weekend and to work hoping it would grab someone's attention but it did not. I did notice however that when I was going to my fragrance lineup, I found myself reaching for The Most Wanted rather than forcing myself to wear it. I have always had trouble smelling things due to my allergies, but I thought the top note was grapefruit at one point which made me love it even more. I decided to research it and found out that it was cardamom. Now there is no mistake about it when I go to apply the Azzaro. I do think that if I applied more, people would notice it more, but at work that is frowned upon. I normally do three sprays, two under the arm and one on the neck. I am pretty sure that is not the proper application. Nonetheless, I will admit that on days 1-3 wearing this fragrance, I thought it was average and not something that would stand out to me if I was shopping for a new scent. Now that I had a chance to spend some time with it, I know this is a brand I will be on the lookout for to check out new products and I cannot imagine not having it in my lineup going forward.
I received the opportunity to try a full-sized sample of Azzaro The Most Wanted Parfum. I will be honest - I've never heard of this brand and was totally unfamiliar with it. Upon opening the box, I was intrigued. The box is black, gunmetal, and gold and has lots of gun references (barrel, chamber, bullet, etc.) and probably relates to the "Most Wanted" theme? There is a French phrase on the box that translates to "Life is a Celebration! Step into the light and enjoy the moment. It's your time to shine." Kind of sleek but kind of cringey. Reminds me of cheap perfume from drug stores or generic brands trying too hard with establishing a motto/saying that doesn't really stand out. But good effort. The bottle itself is shaped to look like the same references to the barrel/chamber. Top is black metal. Bottom half is glass with a very dark brown parfum. Again, at times sleek but cringey at the same time. Nice weight to it. If dropped, wouldn't worry about anything breaking. The scent itself is advertised as an intense spicy cologne for men. An addictive mix of vibrant red ginger, incandescent woods accord, and sensual bourbon vanilla. Very different things. But I will admit, that's a pretty accurate description. Quite hard to pinpoint one scent; sweet, spicy, and musky all at the same time. On the skin, it comes off a little lighter and floraly, but it seems to deepen after some time. Overall, it's not bad. Not good either. Just really OK. Just average. Again, it smells like one of the colognes you would pick up at a drug store as a young kid buying their dad a cologne for Father's Day. I could wear it, but it's not a scent that would turn heads or make people ask what you're wearing (in my opinion). Definitely noticeable though. Maybe a good cologne for when you want to use as a quick coverup - I feel like this scent would be good at masking other smells up (i.e., smoke). It's a manly smell. It's strong. Good for night. Stays pretty consistent throughout the day with little fade. At the end of the night, with moderate activities, I could still smell it on me pretty well. Washed off easily in the shower. Lingered on clothes I wore though. So I'd say if you like that aspect of it; would be a good option. I however just wasn't too into this one. Maybe I'll continue wearing it to see if it'll change. I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to find this scent/brand and buy it, but I can see others liking it and wearing it. Just some small tweaks here and there and I believe they could elevate the scent and marketing. I feel like too much effort is being put into making it look nice and appeal to a certain crowd; if that same effort was put into elevating the scent itself - could produce a strong product. Not a bad experience for the first time with Azzaro. Wish it would have been better and stood out from the others.

Never tried any of the Azzaro brand fragrances, so this The Most Wanted was a first. The bottle alone gives manly, as its in the shape of a revolver, which extremely neat to say the least. The scent is definitely woodsy as well as spicy. Nice fragrance to wear in colder months with layers and what not. Makes me curious on what other fragrances the Azzaro brand may include.

Azzaro " The Most Wanted " cologne for men is one of the best Colognes that I have ever smelled!! I love to smell great so I have a huge collection of cologne and Parfums. But I must say that " The Most Wanted " is definitely by far my favorite!!! Azzaro did an awesome job in combining warm toffee, sensual bourbon vanilla, vibrant red ginger and incandescent woods to create an adventurous, fierce, spicy scent that will turn heads! Since wearing this cologne I have had tons and tons of Compliments. I'm always looking for Cologne that not only smells amazing but is also long lasting and I am pleasantly pleased with the longevity!!! I Would Highly recommend this Cologne and brand to family and friends!!

The Most Wanted is truly an exceptional fragrance and in my opinion, the best in the series. While the original Wanted left me indifferent and I enjoyed Wanted by Night, this one has really impressed me.
Right from the start, the dominant note of cardamom takes the stage. It carries a pleasant spiciness, although not as intense as the cinnamon note in Wanted by Night. What sets The Most Wanted apart is its delicate balance of spice with a subtle, permeating sweetness.
Upon application, a fruity aroma immediately captivates the senses. This is achieved through a clever blend of cardamom, which gives off an impression of lemon, reminiscent of the original Wanted fragrance, albeit more toned down. The sweetness that accompanies it is smooth and candy-like, resembling the vibe of the popular 1 Million fragrance.
The spiciness in The Most Wanted remains fresh and warm throughout its wear, never overpowering or becoming an overwhelming gourmand scent. The base notes bring a touch of smokiness from bourbon vanilla, but predominantly showcase the freshness of vetiver. This green-ish aspect adds depth to the overall composition.
During the rest of the wearing experience, a delightful combination of sweet and spicy caramel with balsamic undertones and fresh highlights emerges. While The Most Wanted may not be an overly complex fragrance, it certainly offers intriguing and unique blends of aromas within its relatively simple composition.
In conclusion, The Most Wanted is a true gem in this fragrance series. Its careful balance of cardamom spiciness with a permeating sweetness, coupled with refreshing undertones of vetiver and smoky vanilla, creates a delightful olfactory journey. If you appreciate a fragrance that is both sweet and spicy, The Most Wanted is definitely worth considering.

bp23 from undisclosed
The Most Wanted is sweet, warm, and woody. It reminds me of caramel. It is suitable for cold days and nights in colder weather. Projection and longevity is excellent. I found that a little bit goes a long way with this fragrance. Highly recommended if you're looking for a sweet and warm fragrance. This will get lots of use from me in cold weather. This was provided by influenster for me to review.

I found this cologne too have a very nice scent that is not too over powering. It's not overly musky or heavy so it's great for the summertime. I do smell a little bit of sweet in it which is really nice for the warmer months. The packaging is really nice and substantial so it's a decorative piece on its own. You can tell a lot of that went into the detail and even the cap a nice weight to it. Overall very masculine packaging and it's a great gift for Father's Day or Christmas!

10/10 would recommend. Initially wouldn't have picked it up based on the bottle design itself but after trying it out I was really impressed with this cologne. At first it was a bit strong but after wearing it awhile the scent died down. It is really long lasting. Very masculine scent, not too off putting though. My wife really enjoyed the smell, she is really sensitive to colognes/perfumes (some cause migraines for her)—this one was a winner! Will likely be repurchasing once I run out.

I received your complimentary from influenster. When it first arrived, I took it out and tested it on myself before giving it to my husband to try. The smell was not too overwhelming, fresh, and had a nice musk. My husband smelled it, and immediately looked it. There's something about it that mixes differently with someone's own personal scent. You can tell the scent is there, but it has a little extra from one's unique scent.
We will definitely be buying more.

Right off the bat, my husband and I love the box and packaging, and the the bottle was amazingly detailed and so cool. Don't mind it sitting on the counter. The smell was almost unisex and really loved the warm scent of like amber and toffee with notes of a lighter clean scent but the after lingers were too strong for me to spray in the house.

The scent is very airy and very cooperative to by body levels. Everytime I walk past someone, I literally turn their heads & they ask me what it is that I'm wearing
albertol7 from undisclosed
Interesting, powerful scents that awaken the senses of anyone. a good combination reminiscent of earth. I will definitely use it often. the presentation of the perfume reflects its content for men

Wow this perfume had me stunned it smells so good. I can't wait for my husband to wear it out when we go on a date! Smells so good!
alexo2 from undisclosed
Super excited to get this cologne as Azzaro has always been one of my favorites! This perfume does not disappoint with its long lasting and sweet and strong scent! This is the type of perfume that I would use on a special date in the evening. Definitely not an everyday smell since it can lean a little to the strong side. Overall this perfume smells amazing i absolutely love it
baards from undisclosed
My wife actually keeps trying to steal this one for herself. It is sweet but also warm and spicy, while still remaining masculine and not overly sweet. While the vanilla is dominant, it's complexity makes the vanilla smell "darker" and almost seductive. The scent isn't overwhelmingly strong but it does last throughout the day.
lilbrother from undisclosed
Love the strong but soft feel and spice of this. Just enough in all the right places and not too much. The only drawback is you have to get past the chemical kick to enjoy the experience.

Guys, let me just say, you will regret not picking this up! This is one of the best scents I've ever had the pleasure to smell. It's perfectly balanced and has the perfect amount of intensity. It's very versatile, projects well and lasts all day plus some! It has a slight bit of amber and spice, lots of toffee and vanilla, yet it's not too sweet. It's warm and seductive, you cannot go wrong with this cologne. My husband absolutely loves it, wears it everyday and gets compliments from guys and girls, even at the gym. If you're even considering purchasing this, here's your sign, just do it!

I really love the design it's very manly. It has great spicy and vanilla notes. I wore it for a short occasions and it did great.
forgottxn from undisclosed
I really like the presentation a lot; box and bottle are very nice. The smell is generally sweet but still has this masculine, cinnamon-like scent. I didn't like the scent at first, but it's growing on me as I continue to smell it. It is very radiant and the strength of the scent lasts for a while after you spray it on. Seems very high quality!
