    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.

    Another "no, no, no" for the guys at Xerjoff. As many of their other deliveries, Richwood is well crafted with top-quality ingredients but fails to coalesce into an outstanding fragrance due to the strong deja-vu vibe I get throughout its evolution.

    A rose/patchouli fragrance laying on a solid sandalwood/iris base that smells rich (maybe too much) and will appeal to anyone who like to ostentate and show off. Strongly perfumey. Stereotyped luxury.

    Perfect for anyone attending a charity event in a stretch limo.
