At first glance the object above might look like a microphone to you but don’t be fooled by its polished steel exterior. What it is, in fact, is the clever design of a bottle containing the new fragrance from Azzaro for men. Dubbed Decibel dB, the fragrance is as masculine as they come, almost electric in its high notes. The magic ingredients are ‘aldehydes’ – carbon and hydrogen atoms at work to stimulate the senses. There’s also a metallic breath of green tangerine (so they don’t just come in orange). But wait a while and you’ll notice the sense turns darker, drifting into hints of licorice, violet and incense, with vetiver, tonka bean and vanilla sitting dead centre. Indeed a dude will knock ’em dead with this impressive scent.
Azzaro Decibel dB 50ml RRP $59, 100ml RRP $89, available from August 12 at leading department stores and selected pharmacies.
