    Default 1861 versus Bergamote 22

    If you could only own one which would it be? -- Just a bit of a "high end fresh" faceoff.

    I actually really like both of them...but I give it to 1861 because it's got more going on and has more depth to it.

    Bergamote 22. Smells better, and has better longevity. I had poor longevity with 1861.

    After sampling both quite a bit I am putting in a narrow vote to B22. Ended up with a FB of that and large decant on the way soon of 1861.

    However I now have the complicating factor of saving up for the Holy Grail citrus I have since tried in Xerjoff Nio.

    Im not going to vote for either on this one. For me its a bit silly as by the time you pay for 1861 you might as well just pay a bit more and buy the best which is Nio.

    Im not really sure what purpose 1861 serves it seems to be just an intruductory level price perfume for Xerjoff to get people into the brand, unless you really love it of course. Im confident most people that like 1861 actually prefer Nio but are not happy at the price. All brands of products use these kind of tricks to get new customers intrested in there products...
