Reviews of XJ 1861 Renaissance

Smells like a beastmode version of Hermes Concentree d'Orange Vert. I mean it literally smells identical to my nose. And the projection and longevity are both super strong. So if you really love that scent, you will love this. Me however, I'm ok with it but not a huge fan.

Genuine, natural smelling citrus outing from Xerjoff's XJ 1861 collection.

This scent, of course, used to be called "1861"; it took on the "Renaissance" surname around 2015 as an ode to the then celebration of Italian unification at Milan. It was presented along with two others scents - Zefiro and Naxos - as a trio presentation by Xerjoff.

That being said...

General review:
Very crisp, refreshing citrus notes of Amalfi lemon, tangerine, and Calabrian bergamot hit you right from the start with an impressive, sincere contruction; an incidental similarity to lime is also perceived by the composite interactions of these fruits. Fresh brightness comes from lovely mint, and the florals add such a beautiful bouquet that is part and parcel to the 1861 (Renaissance) flair: Rose, lily-of-the-valley, tart petitgrain, herbal patchouli. Parting shots come from a nice combo of cedarwood, mossy damp greenness, musk, and powdery sweet amber. Lasts a long while and has great projection to boot.

Smells VERY similar to Acqua Decima by Eau d'Italie, also a really nice Italian-styled citrus-mint-floral-petitgrain-woody scent (actually, a cheaper, similar scent alternative, if 1861 (Renaissance) is a bit pricy for you). Overall, a great fragrance worth rebranding. :-)

Who added this...... 1861 Renaissance? Its the original 1861 but renaming Renaissance to make 1861 a proper line adding Naxos and Zefiro too it.

Original 1861 and 1861 Renaissance are the same frag but different/updated packaging so don't rush out to try this if you've, had or tried the original as its the same.

Xerjoff really outdid their self with this frag! You can really smell the individual notes, lemon and bergamot right off when you first spray it. Me personally I don't get much mint.

After about 1 hour the lemon and bergamot fall into the background and the flowery notes come more dominate. The middle notes last from 2-3 hours on my skin.

After you get a flowery, citrus, musk as the dry down. Which is absolutely sublime!

I purchased this frag as a decant. But the first time I sprayed this on I knew I was going to purchase a bottle.

This is a great frag for work, dressed up, sophisticated days, and dates!

I would highly recommend this frag to anyone!!

Overall: 10/10
Longevity: 9/10 (9-11 hours)
Sillage: 8.5/10 (It does leave a sizable scent trail- estimated 5-6 feet behind you)
