    Default New Xerjoff Collection *** OUD STAR**

    Hey everyone. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up a new collection of Xerjoff called Oud Star will be coming out.

    I expect to receive my stock in March or April and I will be launching it at Luckyscent, Parfumsraffy and MIN New york in the April timeframe. It will be 6 scents. I cant give anymore information but it will be beautiful. Official launch will be at the Esxence show in March.

    I look forward to smelling this. I might even have gotten over my dislike of Givaudan oud by the time I do.

    Interesting. Do you think that with their prices, they could afford to use good quality natural oud oil? (Though I wouldn't be surprised if their oud line ended up being even more prohibitively expensive than their other fragrances.)

    Well if Kurkdjian arrived late at the oud party, then it seems that Xerjoff is coming to tidy up after it...

    It will be nice to see how they can bring out six different "Oud" flavored offerings. A lot of the houses have now come out with perfumes featuring the Oud note and maybe some with Oud. I'm holding out to see if and when my guys(CS/SL) do one.

    Shooting Stars don't come in 75ml.

    I'll certainly consider these for a series of splits when they become available.

    I'm not at all surprised but this collection could either be monumentally excellent or an embarrassing failure.

    I can see them being extremely pricey. After all, this is oud we're talking about and whether they're using the real thing or just want to convey that impression...

    Oud is the new cedar but more lucrative. Furthermore, any fragrance house can justify their high retail prices by claiming the use of real oud oil.

    It's the biggest fragrance industry con of the last few years (barring IFRA-influenced reformulations).

    Well, agreed with you and the industry is just manipulating the consumers to believe that Oud is the quintessence of raw materials, it seems like niche is becoming more and more like mainstream nowadays....it is a pity, why the industry does not explore other raw materials?...Money wise is not interesting i know...too risky .

    I received my first set of the scents for testing here and let me just say, you all will be very impressed with these.

    Love them or hate them I have a feeling people will be impressed with these as they really do reflect scents like you will find in the middle east. These have a true "respect" for the types of scents you will find in Dubai, Saudia Arabia and Abu Dhabi.

    My Stock as well as samples should be in by April.

    Well, if the Borneo oud offerings are that good, I may have to rob a bank or two...

    A note: These are not heavy barnyardy type scents. These are more along the lines of well blended Oud Mukhallats. If anyones been to the middle east before, you will see that this is typically what most middle easterners (including myself) wear. This line was actually tested for over a year and a half in the the Emirates and modified to meet their criteria.

    I'll be sampling them for sure. I'm tired of the Oud thing in general, but when it comes to Xerjoff I'm always interested in sniffing something with good quality ingredients.

    I had confirmation this morning these will only be available in 50ml and will be available to order early April. I've tried two of them so far this morning from samples (Najaf and Gao) and they are quite exceptional in terms of the clarity of composition.

    I'll definately be offering splits of these next month.

    Directly from Xerjoff Italy, I've ordered quite alot from them over the last year and they messed up my last order so it looks like they've started giving me preferential treatment. I didn't ask for them and got a package out of the blue.

    I'm just hoping for one thing. The best thing about Xerjoff is how easy and affordable they make it to sample their collection in a way that provides a substantial quantity without forcing you into full-bottle bankruptcy. If they all sucked, this would not be a deal, but like the genre or not, Xerjoff's are generally worth the dough... especially in these kits that give you around 85ml of juice for 160-250 Euros, depending on the line. Their discovery kits are the best thing going. (And as I type this to confirm those prices, their boutique website is down.... could it be that some "things" are getting added ??? :-)

    And Hey... 6 Fragrances... just like the other 4 kits. Please Please Please release this as a discovery kit!
