Thread: Xerjoff Kobe.

    Just sampled Kobe and Uden

    To me Kobe is a better version of Aqua Di Parma Colonia Essensa with the neroli and rose (I get no oud from it whatsoever) and Uden is a better version of Versace Dreamer. Perhaps i'm being harsh because of the pricetag, but I would never spend $300 on 50ml of these.

    I'm sampling Kobe right now, thanks to my good pal Oupavoc!

    This is probably the best neroli I've ever smelled. So that's oud in the background? I don't get a whole lot of oud, but I'm no expert on oud, that's for sure. I love the woody/neroli vibe, and I'm getting the slightest hints of cinnamon maybe? That makes it slightly resemble the flat, chewing gum that used to come in hockey cards back in the day - anyone know what I'm talking about?

    My only problem with this one is my problem with most neroli based scents - my wife thinks it smells like freakin' household cleaner! SONOFABITCH! She didn't like the opening of this one, but I'm an hour in, and maybe I'll try again, because it's much smoother now. Wish me luck!

    Does Harrods in London and Gallerie Lafayette in Paris carry the Xerjoff fragrances?

    Just sampled Kobe. My, my....very nice. I wish I had a bottle so I could spray myself 3 or 4 times with it. Much too expensive, however. This is one where a 10 ml split will have to suffice. Now, if I could only find one.

    Well RedRaider430, IMO Kobe is a scent that smells actually better, when lightly applied. Too many sprays sort of intensifies the neroli/oud and makes it a bit cloying, whereas one tiny spray in the middle of my chest lasts hours and hours.

    An amazing scent, Xerjoff hit the jackpot with this one.

    Agreed. The best way to enjoy this scent is to go light on the trigger.

    I must confess I don't like this. I get an incense accord that rubs me the wrong way.

    I really like this. The OB is not too intense. I usually do not like strong OB notes.

    Like the other Xerjoffs I've tried, I feel like Kobe is very well made. Quality ingredients..very long lasting. However, I'm not a huge fan. One of the reasons is that it gives me an almost instant headache. I'll have to revisit it at another time to see if anything changes.

    I feel that Kobe is definitely well made. It is a quality fragrance with a rich composition but it is just not my style. I am sure this well smell great on someone else.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood
    6. Ambre Nuit
    7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    8. Noir de Noir
    9. Apple Brandy

    Quite a nice fragrance, unique and the quality of ingredients and composition is apparent. I get a very clear and bright neroli with almost a starfruit like note, giving it a slight exotic feel. Though, I can't see myself paying the asking price for a bottle.

    Anywho, Kobe is fantastic. It reminds me of a less linear and more potent APOM with a lot more going on. On my wish list.

    Not a fan. Every time I smell it, it reminds me of a citrus enchilada.

    Fans of Kobe should try Sweet Redemption by Kilian.

    This is quite beautiful. A very unique take on citrus. Wore reflection man on the other wrist to compare (they follow a similar theme IMO), and Kobe seemed to have so much more 'clarity', if that makes sense. Girlfriend was a huge fan. Seems very difficult to find for a reasonable price though.

    Kobe was one of my favorites from this line. Not because of the citrus aspect, but for the oud that goes on it, which seems natural to me, so even if it's a synthetic one it has that oily, dry, new-rope smell that i only get on real oud fragrances. It's one of the few Xerjoff that i would have a full bottle.
