    Default does anyone here actually own a bottle of Xerjoff Uden?

    I need to know how you talked yourself into buying it. how do you not feel guilty buying a $300 1.7oz bottle of cologne? I'm dying for this but I'm struggling to justify it. it's starting to f**k with my head.

    I just have a sample, it is very good... worth $300 if you really like it a lot and don't have to skip rent to afford it.

    I can afford it, I'm up to $1,050 in fragrances just in the last two weeks. lol

    I can't figure out what is in this that justifies that kind of cost for such a small amount. I get suckered in by the coffee and rum notes, vanilla is a dime a dozen but the combo is like nothing I've smelled.

    I see Frapin 1697 has a few similar notes, namely the rum... anyone know if these two are anything alike?

    I bought half a bottle from a basenoter. Love it, but wouldn't pay full price.

    I don`t own a bottle, but it`s on top of my wish-list. The best from Xerjoff IMO!

    I just splashed $300 on Aventus so there is no way that I would even think on that kind of purchase.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    $300 for 1.7 ml of a fragrance that I'd guess you'll probably never burn through an entire bottle of (judging by the size of your wardrobe that is), doesn't seem like such an extreme thing. Why spend $300 on two or three bottles that you might not finish, instead of on just one that you also might not finish, but that you like a lot more?

    I would say, when you get the $300 burn money for fragrances, go for it.

    Nothing like a good enabler to get the wallet open.

    Yeah, I say if you can afford it, just go for it. People here love and buy Puredistance M, which is over $11/ml - it's worth it to them. You can always try selling/swapping decants or samples too.

    I own the 15ml disovery set sample. I wouldnt call it a "bottle" ,lol!

    I have the same strugling that you have, only with Kobe and Modoc, man Ive just grown to love these! But these prices.., its just mad!

    Id go for the discovery set if I were you.

    Some folks spend that much on a bottle of wine to go with dinner, and that is gone in a couple of hours. Go for it if you can afford it. You only live once (or twice..well, OK, maybe a lot more)

    Puddlemonkey, I think you should go for it! A while back I finally gave in and spent $275 on a bottle of The Party in Manhattan. I have loved it from first sniff and just couldn't get around the price tag for a $50ml bottle. Then one night, I had too much to drink, started browsing on luckyscent and bought that damn thing. But I have no regrets. Especially since it has recently disappeared from Luckyscent's website. Who knows when it will be seen again in the USA. But I have a bottle!! Phew!

    If you love it, and will use it, GET IT! Have a shot or two and take the plunge.

    Puddle - I say go for it as well. I just love Uden and it is my favorite from the line ( really like Nio as well, but not even close to Uden). I tried for so long to come up with a "replacement" frag - closest I got was Pen's Endymion, but it's still not the same.

    So what I have done is just bought some of the samples for now - and living vicariously through you!

    Go for it and enjoy!

    True, the samples on luckyscent are about the same price per mL as a full bottle... but you can only get 2 per order.

    I wish there was an easier way to try others from this line. I only have sample vials of Nio, TO, and Uden.

    Buy the Uden & ask Xerjoff to throw in some samples with it. But the 6 x 15 ml mini set is a much better deal imo.

    Since you're interested in Uden, then you should be looking at the Shooting Star line Men's set - Uden, Nio, Dhofar, Modoc, Oroville, Kobe. All pretty good in their own way. If you want 1ml samples, you might want to try TPC. Pricey perhaps but buying the wrong full bottle is even pricier. Personally I have yet to break this $300/bottle barrier...

    Like Kbe said above, you can spend that much on a good wine or dinner, I've done it without regret because the food, service and the great time was worth it to me.
    You like the fragrance, you know you'll treasure it and even more important: you'll enjoy wearing it! Several times=several hours of joy. How awesome is that?!
    Money as it is, is just paper, but you have the power to transform it into something that to you is worth it.
    Then you realy get YOUR MONEY'S WORTH >.<

    High time Xerjoff sold their fragrances in plain glass bottles. I have the 15ml sample sets and they are so good . I love the ones aimed at men as well as women. I just wish they would concede that they might sell so many more in a reasonable bottle. I would love the gorgeous bottles but they are way out of my price range considering I want many other brands too . I think Amouage should stop using crystal bottles which are not refillable. It's not a fair World and we can accept not buying a vintage Rolls Royce but their is no need to make the bottles so expensive. They can keep those as special editions for those who can afford it.

    This thread prompted me to break into my Uden sample that I've had sitting around for almost a year now (Too. Many. Samples.)

    Wow, I see what the fuss is all about...although I'm not sure I am enjoying the musks which I wish were dialed down a bit. But the way the fougere top notes mix with that salty/ocean smell and then coffee. It sounds like a disaster, but it smells just right and also very unique.

    I look forward to seeing how this evolves on my skin tonight...

    Me too.

    The topnotes were at first intense and a little off putting, but then it settled down and mellowed. Just wish they would have left the coffee note out. It makes for a dark, kind of off-putting accord at times. But I agree the fougere elements mixed with the marine notes make for a unique and interesting composition. Still like Kobe best so far...

    This is how you make a bottle. The cap is heavy enough to be used as a weapon. It also fits snug on the bottle and isn't loose or wobbly (Hi Creed!). The # engraved on the glass bottle matches the handwritten one on the box. The gold bar with the artwork on front has "Xerjoff" engraved on the back and can be seen through the backside of the bottle. This 50ml bottle of cologne itself weighs more than most 120ml bottles.

    I e-mailed Xerjoff about it not really expecting a reply...





    Dear man of my dreams, (ok she used my real name, but I know what she was thinking!)

    Thank You very much for Your letter and for Your interest in our fragrances!

    As for the code You found on Your bottle of Shooting Stars, it is the serial
    number that is linked to the batch of raw materials used in that fragrance
    in a specific year.

    Try to imagine the gathering of grapes for the production of a good wine,
    how the producers should be careful to collect the fine quality of raw
    materials that year. With the good perfume this same thing happens.

    This sequence of numbers means: last three numbers stand for the whole
    number of a bottles produced of a specific year for this fragrance; the
    number in a middle stands for a number of a year we produce this specific
    fragrance(Uden);and the first number is the number of your bottle among all
    bottles of Uden in that year.

    For example, Your number is 456/2/999: it was the second year the fragrance
    was produced, in that year was produced 999 bottles of Uden, the number of
    Your bottle is 456.

    I hope I was clear in an attempt to explain the mechanism by which our
    fragrances are produced. If You wish any further information please do not
    hesitate to contact me.

    Yours sincerely,
    Anastasia Sheveleva

    It sounds like pure luxury and quality. And only 999 per year? Dang, they actually are exclusive. Very curious to try some now.

    When I accidentally poured my sample out on my bed a few hours later I got that tortilla issue, but the next day when I came home from work it smelled like Kobe again. I guess my nose simply fatigued to some of the notes and I was left with a different smell after I was around it for a couple hours.

    So you mean that was unique to that scenario in your case? Not the usual?

    No, it's the usual but I'm usually wearing it so to me I end up with tortilla after a few hours due to the fatigue. But after that spilled sample experience I realize others are still getting "Kobe" much after my own olfactory failure. Similar issue with Aventus, I don't get anything after 20 minutes but people are commenting 8 hours later.

    I need a piece of warm flesh I can spritz and leave behind in a room where I can come back after an hour or two and experience all the notes in the base without the fear of olfactory failure.

    Buy a naked mole rat. Unless that would be animal cruelty. Then you can use my high school teacher instead, who looked like a naked mole rat and bought all the Ralph Lauren fragrances.
