    Fars has received the least comment of the Oud Stars. Is it because in attempting something a bit different it actually comes across as quite familiar? Let me explain...
    The intention was to make a West meets East kind of perfume, combining the essentially European notes of bergamot and lavender with the heavier nagarmotha and oud. The marriage seems to be blessed, as the resulting creation is exquisitely wearable, though also recognizably Eastern Ė one suspects many an attar merchant could have something a bit similar in their wares.
    The most striking aspect of Fars is how easily the lavender floats over the oud Ė I think this may be because there is great dynamism in the heart and base notes here, the notes positively shoot up the nostrils. The impression is bit like the strongly scented arecanut (supari) sold on the Indian subcontinent, with a splash of acetone thrown in for good measure. The main thing is that itís bewitching and addictive, a bit like (whisper it!) a Montale oud. Geranium at the heart which combines really well with sandalwood probably contributes much to the forward motion of this (if youíve encountered this accord in Czech and Speakeís No 88 youíll know what Iím on about).
    All in all, an oud with personality and punch, that can be worn comfortably in warm weather.

    A very agreeable scent. Begins in the typical floral-oud combo, though brighter and more effervescent than many in the genre. It confuses me. I get a rose (if on the wet and fruity side) along with the jasmine - but there is no mention of the rose in the notes. Maybe it is because rose is so commonly paired with oud that I am creating my own subliminal rose. Regardless, I prefer darker, almost chocolatey roses with Oud and woods, so the sweeter flowers (the geranium I do not smell, but jasmin yes, and the lavender lifts your spirits throughout) and house-standard citrusy/bergamot elements come across as a bit at odds with the heart of the fragrance. Then again, I felt the same with Kobe back when it was the new sensation. Easily wearable - though not a barbershop contender to my nose and not particularly masculine either. If you like scents that develop a lot, this one certainly changes its face a few times, becoming much warmer and woodier after several hours, and that is when I most enjoy it. No doubt, Fars is the brightest, cleanest, and most easily approachable of the Oud Stars lineup. A thumbs up, yes, but is it worth the dough?

    This is really lovely. Tre simple floral including the beloved jasmine and a tinge of oud sitting on a base of vetiver-patchouli with the other usual suspects. Aromatic. Spirit lifting. Exquisitely balanced. Far more mannered that the other Xerjoff oud offerings but never the least bit boring. Quite the opposite. Easy to wear. Easy to like and perhaps even adore. The light oud gives it just a little bit of edge.
    As it drys down it softens and lightens and becomes an even more beautiful floral skin scent. That the base does not start to intrude and allows the flowers to live on impresses me as a great achievement in light of the many recent negative experiences I've had of fragrances collapsing during drydown. Fars reminds me very much of Penhaligon's of one sort or another, done the right way.
    This fragrance isn't pushing any envelope of any kind, it's just really very nice. That doesn't mean it won't get nominated for the best fragrance of all eternity in a future Reader's Poll.
