If fashion house Azzaro could be searched as a word on dictionary.com the descriptor written next to it would be: luxury.

Since its inception in the late ’60s by its Tunisian-born Sicilian founder, Loris Azzaro, the brand has been synonymous with the jet-set lifestyle.  Chic, sensual and sometimes hedonistic, Azzaro believed that life was one big playground and wanted his brand to reflect this philosophy. It did. With muses like Sophia Loren and Raquel Welsh at his side, Azzaro earned a reputation for designing stunning party dresses women could make a statement in and have fun in. His first namesake fragrances were just as fabulous and luxe, with For Women in 1975 and For Men three years later. Today, Wanted joins this glamorous roster.

Captured in a revolver-inspired, rugged and metallic-detailed glass cylinder, Wanted is a sensually fresh blend of wood, spice and citrus. Created by perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin, the fragrance starts off crisp and vibrant with notes of lemon, mint, ginger and lavender before easing into a mix of tart juniper and apples and spicy cardamom and geranium. The smooth warm notes of vetiver, tonka bean and amberwood provide the scent with its final weapon of seduction: a lasting and luxurious sensual finish.

Azzaro Wanted EDT comes in 50 ml for $72 and 100 ml for $92. It’s available at Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.
