    Azzaro Acteur is a very unique floral kind of masculine scent. It has a soft clean sensation that is one of a kind to me. I've never experienced anything like this in any other fragrance until this day. I wear this very often and its lasting power and sillage are excellent for me.

    As has been observed already, this is an unsual one. Acteur is basically a spicy rose scent with some leather, patchouli and un-IFRA’d oakmoss in the base. However, the stand-out note which gives Acteur its unique character is mace. Lots of it, and just healthily short of overwhelming. The mace is instantly recognisable upon application, with cardamom playing a minor role. Rose is also almost immediately detected and the interplay between the rose, mace and cardamom makes for an almost unmatched opening accord. Acteur takes the mace of Moschino pour Homme , mixes it with the rose of Amouage Lyric Man (yes, I daresay, such is the quality of whatever rose was used here) and together with mainly leather, patchouli and oakmoss, produces an almost linear accord which lasts well into the drydown. Acteur IS strong. Stronger, I would say, than its better known classic brother, Azzaro pour Homme. This is one frag that I actually respect strength-wise, liberal spraying powerhouse fraghead that I am. Longevity? This is an 80s power-frag. What do you expect? Seriously, with Acteur a little goes the proverbially long way. Is Acteur an excellent product of perfumery? Are the notes balanced? I don’t know and, frankly, i don’t care. I just love Acteur and it gets many thumbs up.

    Acteur is really a gorgeous leathery floral-chypre with a rosey temperament and a starring dominance of oakmoss, cedarwood and leather. The fragrance is bold and masculine. The beginning is decidedly sharp, citric, cool and pungent with a plain blast of bergamot, citrus, aromatic plants and spices. The initial harshness doesn't last a lot. The blooming up flowers are astringent while the woody kind of mildness is restrained throughout the development. The rosey severity, the presence of many common elements and a present final touch of liqueur remind me vaguely some fragrances as Zino Davidoff and Versace L'Homme which are anyway denser, smoother and sweeter because of the usage of balsams and vanilla. Here the rose is a sort of tea-watery rose because of the steady level of watery sharpness. The dry down is mainly moss, sharp amber and leather under my nose, it doesn't morph in to smoothness or dense (vanilla) mellifluence. Some woods set stableness and imprint mildness (here i smell a general woody kind of mildness). The touch of amber is dusty, dry, masculine and warm. The final effect is a complex brown, spicy and woodsy amber with hints of leather (the rosey leather is not starring but is notable for sure). Highly recommended.

    I got a Vintage bottle recently prior to reformulation - the moss is definitely there and shows up in the mid-notes on the skin (on clothing, this is radiating a deep, dark rose (not dirty like Zino Davidoff's - very different vein due to the mace note, which is superb). This rose is not a "fresh" bloom, but one that has start to drop a couple of petals into the bowl of fresh and dried fruit under it (definitely some nice fruit notes in here). However, what keeps the rose from being "off" (or too wilted) is actually the sharp carnation, in my opinion (brilliant). I actually think it fits perfect into the structure. A bright, cheerful rose note would not fit into this simply wonderful! Damn good. Two sprays - one on my inner arm and one on my sleeve right above it and this is really nice. It would take a confident man to wear this - most definitely. I will comment on the "Azzaro-vibe" - it is only slightly there. It is more in the structure, not the scent (if you own Vintage Azzaro Pour Homme, then you understand what I mean). It is how the scent evolves and how the components blend. No similarities to Azzaro Pour Homme - this is, in my opinion (as I boldly say) just as good as Vintage Azzaro Pour Homme and far better than current formulation ApH (not even ballpark close there). Wow - the wood in this is so well-integrated with the florals and the fruits are drying down a bit. The heart of cedar blends beautifully into the warm musk and amber. Lots of great reviews here - Bigsly, I too, get a slightly "boozy" note from the combined mace, fruit notes (not mentioned here) and dark rose. This is actually radiating warmth on my arm - I am more than impressed. Final score - 9+/10, Vintage formulation!! I look forward to a full wearing of this, because I definitely have the confidence. This is awesome juice and I would not think to layer it. I have not tried the current release, which is missing the moss - but this is not even a moss-laden scent (I definitely smell it, but other notes are more prevalent and dominant). Final thought - This is a warm, masculine and beautiful fragrance!
