Reviews of XJ 1861 Zefiro

love how this smells...i get a background of gentle incense with a honeyed/resiny very much cinnamon flavored pretty much keeps this structure throughout...i don't really mind, because it smells awesome...a very well done and blended spicy Oriental...

Incense smokey, sweet and spicy. Reminds me of Halston Man Amber or Liquid Night from A Lab on Fire which both predate this scent.

Definitely a dressed-up, cold weather scent.

I will say this is either blended better or slightly subdued than the other two because it smells more refined and smoother. The other two are louder, but Man Amber fades first while Zefiro amd Liquid Night have similar longevity.

A well-constructed ode to Rome, Italy from Xerjoff!

XJ 1861 Zefiro is meant to evoke the mixture of ancient and modern Italian culture and sensibilities: Wine, flowers, dusty museums, showy citizens in various activities day and night, marketplaces, beautiful architecture, culinary delights...nothing referring to the seaside excursions, interestingly enough.

Nonetheless, resinous, sweet, spicy elements forge together a rough painting that seem to paint the intended picture of things Italian in my mind. The senses of outdoorsy florals and spices mesh with the incredibly legit incense that is like a spectre floating throughout the fragrance's life cycle - tied in with a well-rounded amber finish to it all.

Imaginative, proud, and interesting is how I'd describe my experience sampling XJ 1861 Zefiro! Bravo, Xerjoff! :-)

Citrus in the opening but not too pronounced, then beautiful incense and woods (cedar and sandlewood) come into play with peppery spices, eventually I detect a slightly waxy iris that mimics the feeling of being in a candle lit church. This fragrance is deeply formal and straight faced seriousness..certainly classy and very niche smelling, difficult to picture when to wear this tho..maybe an overcast Sunday somewhere or an art gallery displaying statues. Longivity and projection are very good. The type of fragrance I like smelling all day on the back of my hand. Zefiro reminds me of royal oud, ivory route and the new Valentino uomo absolute with the Valentino being my favorite of the 4.

A nice (woody) cedar, citrusy sweet concoction combined with an incensy, spicy cinnamon feel. In the end, amber and honey rounds this off perfectly giving you a nice woody slightly sweet ambery fragrance with a tobacco type feel. Very reminiscent of Creed's Royal Oud.(...if you have one, you might not need the other as they are very similar)

Very nice!!!

Zefiro is the incense that transports not to church but to a leather playroom. For somewhere in its meld and weave of notes is a suggestion of polished, supple black leather – and once that lodges it’s difficult to chase away.
It’s a cumulative effect rather than a specific leather note as such for this perfume is mainly about a central incense surrounded by spices, herbs and woods which can sound somewhat trad. But there’s something a bit amorphous about the incense, it doesn’t have the silvery clarity of say the incense in an Amouage offering, instead it is warm, fuzzy, lightly smoked, seeping across the range of this perfume rather than offering a point of definition. It is counterpointed by a well-judged and dry sweetness, just enough to be a faint presence and offer relief to the bustle of spice and herbal notes inhabiting the incense cloud. And then there’s something like hour-old white wine in a glass and a touch of wormwood which give it a suggestion of mould and wear and perhaps that leather-like twist. Mature for sure, but also a handsome devil.
A word of caution though: this does not evolve much, so once it settles into its leather-inflected incense statement it doesn’t budge. If that does not sound like something you’d go for, you’re unlikely to be converted.
