    1861 by Xerjoff

    These are beautiful full citrus notes. Also the florals are very beautifully mixed into the perfume. The notes are: Bergamont, Mandarin, Lime, and Petitgrain, Rose, Lily of the Valley, Mint, Cedar, Patchouli, Amber and Musk. It is easy to see why people will be impressed with the quality of product in 1861.

    Explosive in fullness and lavish in mixing style, the orchestration of ingredients used is thrilling with its vibrancy. But is it the right tune? No, not for me I'm afraid. This is a floral style eau de cologne with baroque flourishes that nip at your heels from their richness. Xerjoff 1861 is quality for sure; but it does not sing the right tune on me. Could it be a little too decoratively ornate? Probably not on someone else, but for what I hope to smell this is more effort needed than what I want from a fragrance.
