Reviews of 17/17 Richwood

This smells like a sandalwood and vanilla fragrance somewhat in the style of Chanel Egoiste, especially after the Xerjoff signature notes burn off after about an hour. I like the wood used in this. It has a nice texture to my nose, slightly powdery in moments.

Shampoo and cherry-pie. Nothing else really. Base at 9 hr mark is a bit better. But I guess it is just shampoo note wearing off off by then.

Type: Sweet Amber

Richwood is a sweet amber fragrance. The materials are excellent, but it doesn't go much beyond a sweet ambery accord. Given the name, I would have expected more sandalwood and even oud, cedar, etc.

This review is going to be short.
A simple and quality creamy vanilla and sandalwood along with rose and patchouli (maybe some coffee as well!)

At the beginning I can smell a sweet vanilla which is creamy and very delicious along with some faint coffee note, soft sandalwood, lots of patchouli and some rose in the background.
The patchouli note gives the start a sharp aromatic and kind of peppery aura but because of creamy vanilla and rose it calms down.

As time passes patchouli settles down a little bit and rose gets stronger along with a little stronger sweetness (still creamy).
Smells nice with good quality (not great) but $700 for this scent is a big NO, NO!
Projection is above average and longevity is around 4 hours on my skin

Intriguing swirling opening of pissy grapefruit with blackcurrent and hypnotic C&S 88 rose and sandal. There’s a hint of something here that the nose interprets as poisonous (like bitter almond odours), which is quite addictive. Settles into a patchoulied sweetwood in the mid phase with a hint of grape soda hanging over it. The deep drydown is mainly a sweet sandal. What disappoints ultimately is the muddiness of this creation (bar the top) that slathers all the fine ingredients that Xerjoff claims to be using. Sniff the drydown of Richwood blind and you’d be hard pressed to associate it with a brand that represents the ultimate in nicheosity.

Xerjoff Richwood opens with bergamot, grapefruit and mandarin followed by a rich creamy sandalwood that comes accompanied by rose, iris and a touch of black berries.

A deep smoky/spicy/Boozy patchouli soon enters the stage and, it is in this combination of Sandalwood, Rose, Iris and patchouli where Richwood stays the longest until, labdanum and vanilla join those notes into the dry down.

Richwood is a luxurious, indulgent and sophisticated experience, a beautiful piece of perfumery with Excellent longevity (I get 14-16h consistently from a single spray), projection is good for the first 4-6h and sillage is moderate.

Please note. This review is from my carton box presentation bottle. The whole of the 17/17 stone label line was reformulated when the beautiful leather box presentation was introduced. But, I am afraid that the new juice does not match the great leather presentation. I find the original carton box juice vastly superior.

As for the price, I bought DamaRose, Irisss and Homme with this bottle of Richwood and happily paid the high cost admission ticket for my tall carton boxes back in April 2014. Having said that, I would not pay anywhere near the £500 asking prices for the newer leather box formulations. Sadly, that goes for the whole Xerjoff 17/17 stone label line.
