Xerjoff Luxor Fragrance Evaluate

Xerjoff Luxor Eau de Parfum kicks off with heavy spices and sweeter, animalic oud that’s leathery, resinous, and earthy with some mustiness however in no way the total spectrum of the pungency of an actual barnyard can have (which oud may give off). I discovered the oud to be central participant all through the opening to the drydown, with the oud going from earthy, musty, and woody to sweeter, nutty, and figgy at instances. There was a good quantity of incense, myrrh, and cedar through the center and early a part of the drydown. The notes are listed as:

  • prime notes: cinnamon, leather-based, cardamom
  • coronary heart notes: incense, tobacco, myrrh, cedar
  • base notes: Cambodian oud, Thai oud, cypriol, patchouli

The opening was heavy with cinnamon earlier than permitting the oud to return by way of, which smelled on the sweeter aspect, considerably animalic (however not as pungent as oud might be) and leathery with spiced, smoky woods and wealthy resins. Within the first jiffy, the oud wove out and in, typically including depth and nuance to what was a mixture of resinous, spiced woods, till it lastly stayed nearer to the forefront to create a perfume that was reasonably animalic, leathery and resinous.

The cinnamon and cardamom, together with the myrrh, appeared to supply a blanket of heat, cozy spices in thick, resinous sweetness. After a half hour, the spices have been dialed down, extra blended collectively and fewer distinctive, which gave the oud house to essentially shine over the dry, smoky, flippantly spiced woody base. There was one thing nutty between the center and the drydown, and typically the sweetness nearly learn syrupy and fruity, like figs.

Till the drydown, the oud remained on the sweeter aspect, nearly musty, just a little damp, with a spiced, earthy, smoky base of patchouli, incense, and cedar.

Software

For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as that is additionally my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered scent didn’t maintain nicely right here in any other case. 

Longevity

It lasted for 5 hours till it was a skin-scent and about eight hours earlier than it was fairly troublesome to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection have been reasonable with the sillage dropping sooner than the projection throughout the first hour of damage.

Private Ideas

Oud was a star part all through the event, however it had a variety of supporting notes, which mitigated what can typically be pungent, smelling of blue cheese or feces. It was much less barnyard as animalic to my nostril, whereas the spices, myrrh, and patchouli gave it a candy, spiced, woody base to take a seat upon. It was a beautiful perfume that I’ll need to revisit once more!
