    Default New Xerjoff 1861 release. A beautiful unisex scent.

    This will be out next month and will be priced at $250 for 100ml. A special price for this scent as it is in honor if the 150 year anniversary of Italy's unification. It's a beauty. Here is the first review:

    Cairomerta, I can't wait to sample this. How does 1861 compare to Nio?

    This is very different from Nio. The citrus is also very bright in the begining of this scent but a roundness from lily of the valey with the mint take this in a different direction from the herbal nature of Nio. Lasts an amazingly long time too for a fresh citrus scent.

    This new one is excellent. Far different to Nio and lasts a reasonable amount of time on my skin as well. I've been going through my samples for the last two weeks along with Regio which is also fantastic and Richwood and Damarose

    Mefisto was so close. And this note list looks even closer to the first Xerjoff I might own. Can't wait to smell it.

    The mint in the heart notes will make or break this one.

    I received a sample of 1861 today. Needless to say, this is a beauty. I definitely get a strong blast of lime in the top. After several minutes I'm starting to experience the mint. It's a soothing green type of mint rather than a toothpaste accord (a little Selection Verte-ish). I haven't gotten to the base but I can already tell that 1861 is going to be a top seller for Xerjoff. This company has mastered working with citrus accords like no other (Nio is a masterpiece). Right now the lasting power and sillage seem very impressive. The mint does not overpower and is well blended so if you're not into mint notes I can't see it being off-putting. 1861 would be wonderful for spring and summer - it is truly refreshing and cooling on my skin (whereas Nio is more sparkling). Now I have to raise funds to buy a bottle! Great stuff.

    Im so glad you like it! Its beautiful isnt it. The citrus lasts an amazing amount of time and the balance of mint and lily of the valley is wonderful. The price on this one is lower than the rest of the line. It is $250 for 100ml

    I totally agree with you above. Nio is more sparkling, where as 1861 has a more refreshing blast to it. I love Selection Verte from Creed and although this new Xerjoff doesn't smell like the Creed, I get the same cooling effect from 1861 as I also get from Selection Verte - just waiting to purchase a bottle of this now when it is released soon.

    I agree that Xerjoff has mastered citrus scents. Until I smelled Nio, I didn't think it was possible for a scent to be fresh and citrus while also smelling opulent and expensive. Looking forward to this one!

    Roja Dove has said " the better the raw materials, the better the scent will be." A Xerjoff scent always stands a chance of being good because of their choice to use quality materials. I've gotten spoiled once my nose got use to quality materials from Xerjoff, Puredistance, By Kilian, Histoires de Parfums, Amouage Attars and a few others. Scents with less than first rate materials just don't do it for me anymore.

    Now give us a good nose and good materials, then we can have some fun. The nose for 1861 has done an exemplary job of balancing this fresh aromatic scent. The typical opening citrus blast soon becomes quite unique and pleasing. The lime is slightly prominent. It's not your tart, fresh squeezed lime we've smelled a hundred times before. It's a lime tempered with a itsy itsy bit of mint. The effect is a very softened lime thats keeps being refreshed by the mint. The mint itself barely perceptable, as it should be.
    The bergamont, mandarin and petit grain are there, but bow out slightly to let the lime have the spot light.

    These top notes continue for hours, making this the longest lasting, most interesting fresh frag to be launched just in time for summer. For those of you looking for something unique and fun for summer, look no further than 1861. The lily of the valley just makes a nice transition from the topnotes, and continues to keep things refreshed. The dry down is a very soft one. Don't let those base notes of cedar, patchouli, amber and musk scare you. It's very balanced and soft. No logs thru the mill cedar, heavy patch, or girly musk - just a refined, easy on the nose, smooth dry down.

    Thanks, thebeck. Sounds like a winner. Does it feel more Italian or English in style?

    It feels and smells Italian. The real reason 1861 is such a winner for me is the nose was able to avoid the "non perfume" category such as L'eau by Serge Luten, Aqua Universalis by MFK, Clean T Shirt, Beautiful Baundrette by cbihateperfume and so on.

    Xerjoff manages to keep it clean without going into dryer sheet, laundry accord, and bullshit accord. 1861 is clean scent for perfume lovers, that is sophisticated and should be renamed Italian Stallion. The urban dictionary defines Italian Stallion as a well-endowed, sexually talented male of Italian descent.

    Its nice stuff. The lime note stands out the most in the top notes...tangy, clear, tart, slightly sweet. Lily of the valley is most prominent in the heart notes...the mint isn't that prominent but I guess its doing its part in the background by keeping things light and edc-like but not allowing the floral heart to bloom and dominate.

    I agree with thebeck's review.....ading that I get just a little touch of a sweet anise-licorice-like note in the heart. I was expecting 1861 to be sharp and green like Nio (which is another xerjoff favorite), but it is much softer and rounder. A must try for lovers of softer citrus scents with anisic/licorice notes in them.

    Curious to see if the mint and lilly are a core part of this composition... 230 for 100ml is really not bad when you think of the price of others Xerjoff...
