Reviews of XJ 1861 Naxos

I consider Naxos to be a really refined and grown up gourmand. I don't really consider it to be a tobacco fragrance. Very nice and all but not special enough to warrant the extremely high price tag.

A ghastly, nauseating combination of hay-like Tonka Bean, lavender scent sachets, piercing anise and mildly urinous honey. No detectable tobacco unless it is a facet of the strong Tonka note.

A smoother, more refined Pure Havane.

Very nice to wear and has excellent performance but I'd be fine wearing PH, which is far less expensive and also Samba Skin Man which is a super-cheapy.

This is an especially Xerjoff-smelling fragrance from Xerjoff: a wall of experimental-smelling billowing chemicals. The Xerjoff signature DNA is pushed beyond reasonable limits in this screamer.

Only my second try from the beloved house of Xerjoff (after Nio last year), 1861 Naxos smells as good on skin as I recall when smelling it on paper in Twisted Lily in Brooklyn last fall.

Naxos has a fresh opening of bergamot, lemon, and lavender but quickly dries down into its feature act of tobacco, honey, cinnamon, tonka, and vanilla. For me, the standouts are the tobacco and honey, and this falls right into the "sweet tobacco" or more specifically "honey tobacco" category of scents that seem to be both popular and ubiquitous on the market.

Because of the strong resemblance to Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane, I can imagine at $246 for 100ml Naxos may not be an ideal option. There are certainly other niche honey tobaccos (i.e. Parfums de Marly Herod) that are celebrated and slightly better-priced. I'd lean toward Herod, myself, but certain can concede that while a $50 or $60 bottle of Pure Havane is a much more sensible option on a budget, Naxos is nonetheless smoother and more refined than Pure Havane, lacking its oft-reported "cherry tobacco" sweetness.

Still, if you're on the hunt for the next great sweet tobacco, or more specifically, honeyed tobacco, then this might end up fitting the bill despite the price tag. I'd probably pass on this since I get enough out of Pure Havane, Herod, and other entries like Wiseguys Vegas Cologne and Dua Fragrances Honey Havane, to not feel compelled to opt for another honey tobacco.

A tobacco aroma with sweet undertone of honey.X1 1861 is a extremely charming perfume full of finesse in which particulary the balance between sweetness,wamth who is equally suitable for men and women.however it is more masculine but surre to attract women who like classy kind men.too sweet but in a nice way and gives you feel cozy and Surrendering yourself to its temptation is akin to reaching erotic zenith.Medium Heavy,Wonderful Pleasant and Simply Intoxicating.in one word Deliciousness.



The freshness of the bergamot and lemon contrasted by the heat of the spices lavender creates an elegant opening.the heart is composed with honey and jasmine. a few notes of cashmeran and cinnamon coat in woody marquetry.this tobacco composition is further intensified by powerful Tonka bean reinforced with a soft accord of powdery vanilla which provide the power and trancity to the perfume.you must like strong sweet aromatic tobacco scents to enjoy it.it is great for just hunging out on a nice cold day,or for a relaxed evening at a hip bar or club.



Sillage?Ok.

Longevity?Very Good on my skin.
