moderate sillage and good duration.. a very expensive and generic cologne...
I am a big fan of this whole line from Xerjoff that seem to all rally around a gourmand approach. Regio is a Delicious Maritime Salt-Cologne that smells like an urban beach boardwalk. Not a new concept, but the quality of the ingredients appears to be far above the norm and, admittedly, I am a bit swayed by nostalgia - it smells exactly of summers as a child, not like the synthetic competition. The sweets and sours and salties are all there - even the suntan lotion. Lasts longer than other salty-citrus that caught my attention (legno di nave / seawood) - at least for me. Comparatively, I find this to avoid the sweetness of some of the other casamorati members and to be the deepest and more meditative of the original line, but the final icing on the cake (the most recent release called simply 1888) is also stunning.
Absolutely not worth the price , very messy kinda blending from the start with some sweet , dense floral and fruity infact syrupy mixture having no clarity in notes those could be enjoyed, some times it reminds me of Eugenol a heavy dose of Eugenol and it settles to some kinda Black Orchid of Tom Ford.

A bit of a joke mentioning the top notes as they last about 20 seconds at the most. Regio pretty much dives straight into what I would call ' rose jam', a rich sensual note enriched with what I swear is plum and then caramelised. 'Lyric Woman' springs to mind -- it has the same sort of denseness, but a touch sweeter although less feminine imo. I really like it, especially in this cold weather - it's warm and comforting. The bottle is outrageous though -- Liberace would have liked it. Expensive.
Deja-vu, deja-vu, deja-vu! Good quality and moderatley sweet floral/oriental with a slight fruity/aquatic vibe and no other particular twists. Smells fine but, hoestly, it could be mistaken for most of the fragrances in the same vein. Anything but distinctive.
Same old story: at these prices, I expect something more than an anonimous fragrance orchestrated with good quality ingredients.
