    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.

    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)

    I was hoping someone would tell me something shady about the company or anything else that would make me want to steer clear all together. doesn't appear to be happening though.

    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...

    the Nio would be a waste, already tried it.

    even less if Raffy still offers the basenotes discount. odds are, however, one of you e-tools pissed him off and he revoked it.

    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.
