The visit of the old sniffer
First of all, I didn't even know this perfume from Parfumo. And unfortunately (as so often) it is not produced any longer. It seems to be a pretty bad trend that the manufacturers have their best horses put down in the stables, probably because they don't do their rounds as fast as heßblütige young stallions, which in most cases lack maturity and elegance. So I was all the more curious about "Visit", from which I was able to get a 100 ml bottle at the company with the "A".

Why I did this, although I am neither a fan of "Azzaro pour Homme" (herb-ledrig-seifig), "Chrome" (drisch-synthetisch-metallisch) or "Wanted (see the horse example), seems clear: First of all there are the good evaluations here, which influence a purchase decision at the end, nevertheless, a piece far. Above all, however, it is due to the indicated fragrance pyramid, which does NOT contain exactly that of which I already have en masse in my collection (citric, fruity and herbaceous) or something with which my nose is all too often at war (leathery, flowery and gourmand).

I impatiently unpack the bottle, which does without a lid and gives a very good, dashing figure. The violet fluid it contains arrives on my skin exactly as I expected it to, and that is rarely the case. Apart from the fact that I count some of Annick Ménardo's fragrances among my favourites (Acqua di Gio, Xeryus Rouge, Body Kouros). "Visit" is characterized by a rather linear fragrance, which I personally think is very good. Cardamom and pepper naturally weaken after a while in favour of noble woods, but from the beginning they find two steadfast companions in sweet ambergris and sensual frankincense, which are hooked firmly under the arms of the head and base notes
Again and again I have to sniff at my arm and can't find anything that bothers me: on the contrary. "Visit" exudes an exceedingly masculine aura, without me having to think of thoroughbred machos or suit wear. It has a seductive sweetness in it, without reminding of Christmas cookies or candied fruit. Slightly smoky wood makes me think of an open fireplace without standing directly next to the embers. For me a top autumn and winter fragrance for all who (like me) don't like it quite so old-fashioned, rough, sweet and oriental.

I'd say slam, as long as there's Visit left to grab. The price is cheap (about 40 Euro for 100 ml), H&S are above average and outside the cold season has crept in. If not now, when will it be?!

Mediocre chopped wood smell
The first minute of Visit for men is an echo of the still missed Rush for Men Eau de Toilette. That freshly chopped wood-smell mixed with, what to me is the smell of Windex, and with that creaminess from the musk that is used in Gucci's masterpiece. Really good and promising. Everything seems to be replicated very well and in fine tune.

The problem starts when, after 5min, the sexy combo (musk and chopped woods) became less vibrant, interesting and enveloping. The whole thing became just a shadow or a picture, without personality and movement. My opinion is that the budget wasn't that good and Annick Ménardo had to use the best ingredients for the opening. I don't know if it was the green cardamom or the dusty fresh nutmeg, that i can definitely smell from those 5 to 10min, that make the opening so good and promising but after the naturals dissipate, the woods and musk, although pleasant, can't reach the glorious opening.

The drydown is still good, pleasant and very woody but it kinda lost interest and became a bit flat. Don't get me wrong, the fragrance isn't bad and i still recomend it for someone that wants to know how Gucci Rush smelled, but you have to know that Gucci Rush is the whole song and this is just the intro.

The fragrance lasts 6-8h and projects moderately during the first hour or so.

Not the worst Ménardo creation but a bit disappointing. It is still affable and fairly decent, specially, considering the price that you can find for a 100ml bottle. The opening is great, though.

Crisp cedar
When I first tried this, I did not like it. I am pretty sure I had a dud sample, as it smelled like celery. About a year ago I tried this again and realised what an excellent fragrance it is. It is a spicy cedar fragrance that to me is an exemplar of its type.

There is a pepperiness about this fragrance which complements the cedar perfectly and a dry spicy accord that gives this a crispness missing in other cedar scents I have tried. Visit makes me think of Terre d'Hermes, which in my opinion is an inferior fragrance as I find it a little 'muddy', whereas Visit has an aromatic aspect, probably due to the incense. It is like the offspring of Bulgari pour homme and TdH, but much better than either of those two and it is much cheaper too! The sillage and longevity are more than respectable.

A Visit to Flatiron Building in New York City
The jar of Visit will captivate you, as it's very comparable to the Flatiron Building, formerly the Fuller Building, a triangular skyscraper located at 175 Fifth Avenue in the Flatiron District neighborhood of the borough of Manhattan, New York City. "One of the world's most iconic skyscrapers and a quintessential symbol of New York City."

I've come across Azzaro's Visit lately after I bought GF Ferré Lui and read a few comments mentioning the similarity between the two of them and Gucci Rush as well. Since I like the woody and spicy aroma of GF Ferré Lui, I searched on-line for Visit and found a reasonably cheap one on eBay. Notwithstanding the number of distinct Azzaro's colognes that are part of my collection, I am afraid I've never tested Visit before. It is a must-have for any collector, and it's classy, sophisticated, masculine, and unique, the cedar-incense perfect blend is startling and just precise jaw-dropping. This cologne dumbfounds me, I can't believe I ignored it all this while when it was this good. I guess it was due to the presentation, to its indigo color that made me awkwardly think about an aquatic scent. Too bad. This underrated jewel is everything but a watery, salty, or ozonic cologne, yet it is a refined classic woody-spicy scent.

Hence, as soon as I got up this morning, I felt like rocking it, and I sprinkled a few sprays over my neck, chest, and wrists. The cologne is not overpowering, and you don't have to worry about exaggerating a bit. All of a sudden, the air was saturated with a blast of spicy and minty fresh cardamom, supported by other spices that made the opening less medicinal, a touch of sweet nutmeg, and a bit of piquant pepper. I did not get any citrus fruit note, so this opening should have a pleasant feel for people not liking the citrus aroma. It is very manly with a hint of sharpness and cleanliness to it, courtesy of the black pepper notes.

Even though the top notes, you can perceive cedarwood, giving it a pencil-sharpener type of feel. A menthol-like flow from cedar needles carries the stirring brew to the heart. Here, the cedar comes into its own, imparting its richly balsamic and camphoraceous accord, and vies with a lively incense, with its resinous, myrrh-like smokiness, for dominance. As it progresses, you get sweet, wood, and resin essences. Incense had been used in perfumery as an accent note but very rarely as the focal point. Here the typical masculine woody structure is infused with a significant amount of incense. The musk is boosted with a suite of sweet amber so that it provides a creamier woody foil. I am guessing this was to allow the incense to not become too astringent in this first use of it. The result is the incense comes in with a translucent quality while also becoming the focal point.

Once it's settled in, Visit is a smooth, comfortable perfume whose enveloping warmth belies its blue color as the blue Lebanon cedar. It doesn't evolve all that much with wear. Instead, it holds a steady, linear course for several hours before its central structure gives way. The dry-down that follows is mostly cedar and guaiac, and the latter infuses its tea-rose woodiness. At the same time, a muted nutmeg is relegated to the background—the bustling incense flitters about in the context. A pleasant dry-down ensues.

There is an absolute delight in inhaling the casual scent of spice, musk, and wood. Visit has 8-10 hour longevity and average sillage, it's very long-lasting, such that you can apply once and you'd be able to enjoy its scent for several hours. According to my flavors, it performs better during middle seasons months, springtime and fall time are ideal, a daytime and evening scent, perhaps too weak for clubbing or night out.

Cheaper Gucci Rush Men
Cheap ripoff of Gucci Rush for Men; it completely lacks in the class, the complexity and the grace of Gucci, but it is not bad if you’re willing to settle and lower your expectations. I mean, it is a bit like a well made doll resembling to a human being, it looks like the real thing but lacking in warmth and vibrancy – in life, shortly. Azzaro Visit is all about synthetic cedar and sandalwood, with a ton of Iso E Super and some violet; fresh, “urban”, really simple and moderately enjoyable. More dry and more woody than Rush, more peppery/nutmeg too, and above all more openly, harshly synthetic... but decent for the price.
