    Of the ones I've tried - Nio was enjoyable.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    They have quite a few winners in that particular stable.
    Rich Wood, Kobe, Homme, Dama Rose, Fiero, and 1888 are the ones I liked enough to buy full bottles of.

    Homme 17/17, Zafar and Gao (in that order) by far. The rest (for the most part) are mediocre compositions with high quality ingredients.

    Remik and Palmbeach have a few splits running for a few Xerjoffs on the splits board.

    My favorites are Homme, Nio and Ivory Route (which I personally think should get more love)

    My favorites are Nio and 1861, but if you enjoy the citrus/mint combination, 1861 offers the best bang for your buck.

    Blue Hope!

    The transition from head to base is magnificent: First you get crisp citrus spiced with saffron, which then leads to a warm and creamy heart of tropical jasmine and coconutty cedarwood, which finally melts into a gorumand base which recalls softnes and warmth!

    Yup.....Richwood and Homme are crazy prices, but check out Remik and Palmbeach's splits. If you like the scent, it might be worth it.

    Thanks guys.

    I found this from an interview with Sergio Momo:

    What does the name Xerjoff mean and can you write down the pronunciation phonetically

    SM: It was a nick name from my Croatian grandmother. She used to call me “Sir-joff” Joff. The name is phonetically Zer-Joff

    I agree. Of the several I have tried Kobe was pretty good but not great, and the rest for me were either unmemorable, or memorable for all the wrong reasons (I'm looking at *you* stinky Al-Khatt).

    I received Kobe last week, and while initially not impressed it has won me over. This stuff is beautiful and aside from the notes, it has a leaner and drier structure than it's younger cousin Nio. Also included was a sample of Irisss and it is staggeringly gorgeous, I couldn't stop sniffing my wrists.
