Reviews of 1861 Renaissance / 1861

A very natural grapefruit note dominates the beginning, reminding me of Pomelo Paradis from Atelier. As it dries down, floral notes appear and eventually become the majority scent.

Feels very unisex and casual, like a scent meant more for a room.

If you like a fresh citrus scent mixed with florals and want max performance, this may be the fragrance of choice. It really projects and lasts all day on my skin.

(This was the original 2011 scent from Xerjoff, simply called "1861"; in 2015, it became rebranded as "XJ 1861 Renaissance".)

General review:
Very crisp, refreshing citrus notes of Amalfi lemon, tangerine, and Calabrian bergamot hit you right from the start with an impressive, sincere contruction; an incidental similarity to lime is also perceived by the composite interactions of these fruits. Fresh brightness comes from lovely mint, and the florals add such a beautiful bouquet that is part and parcel to the 1861 (Renaissance) flair: Rose, lily-of-the-valley, tart petitgrain, herbal patchouli. Parting shots come from a nice combo of cedarwood, mossy damp greenness, musk, and powdery sweet amber. Lasts a long while and has great projection to boot.

Smells VERY similar to Acqua Decima by Eau d'Italie, also a really nice Italian-styled citrus-mint-floral-petitgrain-woody scent (actually, a cheaper, similar scent alternative, if 1861 (Renaissance) is a bit pricy for you). Overall, a great fragrance worth rebranding. :-)

Another great Xerjoff take on citrus...quality ingredients ...sharp, crisp and aromatic...not very original though...smells like Joe Malone's Lime Basil and Mandarin...just has a nice fresh minty accent instead of the herby basil accent...very aromatic...a nice and rereshing summer fragrance...like wearing this...

Very nice!

As per usual with Xerjoff you get high quality ingredients and good longevity.

What I get is a green citrus vibe with a nice underlying mint note. I also smell cucumber!! Anyone else?

The problem for me is that it just doesn't offer anything new. Based on the cost, it makes me think that I could do without a full bottle. I will get by on decants and top up as and when I feel the need.

Lovely green citrus fragrance. Feels like rubbing a non leaf in your hand after peeling a lime. If this fragrance was a drink it would be a mohjito . Really lovely , better than nio in terms of performance and it has more too it . This has something in the opening which reminds me of Versace dreamer , although I hate dreamer but love this. Has some nice herbal nuances also.

8,5 /10

An herbal combination of the highest quality citrus and mint over a white floral and amber heart composed with surprising density and boasting excellent projection and longevity. There is no doubt that Renaissance is of a superb quality, as it kind of wows you with its opening in terms of realism and a very live, vivid freshness. The most important question here is whether or not you love the way it smells. I'm still sort of undecided at this point, as I initially enjoy it, but after a while something about the lily-of-the-valley and petitgrain start to grate on my nerves. It's a personal bias, as I've never been a huge fan of white florals other than a well done iris note. And due to Renaissance's excellent projection and longevity, if there's something you don't like about it, unfortunately, it's going to hang around. Certainly a very good fragrance with undeniable class, I kind of hope I come around to 1861 upon further wearings and open my palate to its dimension of white floral notes which I've always found somewhat challenging. Still, an absolute thumbs up and highly recommended for sampling, Renaissance wears best in semi-formal situations during the warmer months of the year.
