Julian Casablancas x Azzaro

Julian Casablancas fronts new fragrance by Azzaro.

We've always wanted to smell Julian Casablancas. We imagine this scent to be a lingering, heady combination of tobacco, liquor, leather and chance hotel room encounters. Unfortunately our noses have never been close enough to The Strokes' frontman to confirm this belief, however as the face of Azzaro's new mens fragrance, Fragrantica suggests his aroma is more akin to that of licorice and Amalfi lemon, with middle notes of violet and base notes of tonka bean and vanilla.

The cologne is called Decibel and the ad shows Casablancas on stage singing 'I Like The Night', which he recorded exclusively for the campaign, before diving into a sea of groping, groupie hands. Aside from the gimmicky microphone shaped bottle, we have absolutely no problem with this whole situation except for the fact these 15 seconds of complete and total rapture are just not long enough.
