Reviews of Shooting Stars: Nio

This and MFK's Petit Matin are some of the best citrus scents available to date, longevity is out of this world.

The best citrus I have ever had the pleasure of sampling. One of the best fragrances I have ever sampled. Sooooooo realistic. The juice is alive. I swear it has a soul. Not as massive citrus fan but this is great!

A super strong blend of (synthetic) citrus, with a strong green undercurrent. This could have been a little diluted, which would have rendered it fresh, juicy and lively. Instead it is super concentrated, to the extent that after thirty minutes it almost leaves the back of my throat parched with dryness. Additionally it is linear and starts to grate, becoming eventually jarring.

The element of Nio I enjoy the most is the touch of green notes, especially in the mid phase, where it shares a hint of similarity with Fougere Royale. Nio is well composed but eventually a let down, especially considering the astronomical price. It also adds to my conviction that hyper expensive concentrated citrus fragrances (Cologne Indelebile, Neroli Portofino, Nio, Italian Bergamot, ....) are a complete waste of time and money - at least for me.

Going to give this a thumbs up as they have managed to create the most natural citrus I have ever smelt which lasts and projects more than any citrus I have tried .

However that is all they have done , I literally get nothing other in this fragrance so it is quite boring to me.

This is like a cleaner upmarket terre de Hermes . Doesn't smell as dirty and earthy .

Not worth the money imo , thankfully I picked up a cheap partial bottle in a Facebook group.

Going to give this a 7/10 and it is best worn on summer nights and for any day you wish to smell like you've been peeling citrus fruits all day.

VERY sharp citrus. Neroli, Bergamot, Pink Pepper mix to be a stingingly sharp fragrance. Dry-down has more green notes, a great fragrance for a hot summer day

Beautiful cologne.Very attractive and appeals to the masses, except for the price! :)
It is a very rich, invigorating scent to put it in a nutshell. Every time the wind blows I get the mysterious lemon and green and it also goes deeper and more exhilarating, as time goes on.
Longevity is a few hours like most scents, and sillage is great.
This is pure luxury in a bottle, a far cry from Xerjoff's other offering, (Richwood which to me smelled like RichBabyWipes) This has redeemed Xerjoff in my eyes in a good way.
Am willing to buy and try more scents from them, but as of now, this is definitely one of my top scents in my lifetime of smelling and spraying.
