    Default Xerjoff Richwood... is it worth the 670$ ?

    I'm afraid if I sample this one I will be impressed, and knowing how trigger happy I can be when it comes to buying fragrance... I'm worried! Any thoughts ?

    Haven't tried this one, but if you like it enough after you sample it and can afford it, then you will buy it and be happy about your purchase.

    I have sampled twice, but it has been awhile. I did like it and remember it being a bit on the sweet side. You could tell it was high quality, but just not something I would personally wear. Just order a sample and try it.

    I think its fantastic. The best sandalwood in a fragrance, that I have smelled. It lasts 18 hours on my skin in a dry climate. once the patchouli wears thin, its divine. Its a VERY loud and powerful fragrance but something that should be tried. But you must be ok with patchouli to find it to your liking.

    No fragrance is worth that. If you want to spend cash get some pure oud oil. JMHO.

    Personally would never spend close to $700 for any fragrance regardless of how good it smelled. There are far too many great quality fragrances for fractions of the price.

    $700 for a fragrance if it gives you $700 worth of joy why not?

    Default Re: Xerjoff Richwood... is it worth the 670$ ?

    I dont see the big deal with the price. I know its expensive but many of us have over a hundred bottles, many of them over 200$. So you would have a few less fragrances in order to afford it ?

    Richwood is also a 1 spray, max and one bottle would last a lifetime.

    It's not the cost so much as the principle. No wait. It is the cost too! LOL.

    The cost is definitely too high for me, but I can understand the viewpoint of having it forever. That being said, I've never smelled it nor am I particularly interested given the mixed reviews I've heard from others.

    The cost is too high for most of us but I think I will go ahead and sample it... like Nersh said, most of us have many many bottles that are worth 200$ and sometimes 500$ so a 100ml of pure quality (I'm already convincing myself that it's a high quality fragrance) shouldn't be a problem at that price!




    Richwood, you better turn me into a hero! LOL

    I once had saved up quiet a few months of salary to buy Orignal Santal by creed, i had saved up about 200$.
    The day came when i had saved up the money and my joy knew no bounds knowing i would have what I had
    coveted for almost 6 months,i thought nothing could surpass this joy.
    As i was on my way to the seller's place, i saw on the road about 15-20 little kids sitting together crying (these
    were homeless street kids), while their parents were begging for money and food on the traffic signal( including
    old men and women who could barely walk), i stalled for a second, asked my taxi to stop at a store ahead.
    I brought almost 170$ worth of food, water and clothes, walked toward those kids, many of whom were crying, new born,
    and didnt know why the world was mean to them for no fault of theirs, beckoned towards them showing them chocolates and food and in about 10 seconds i was surrounded by the kids and their parents, i tried my level best to equitably distributing everything, and guy's, the smile's on their faces, the joy in their laughter, their eyes spoke soo much to me (they were not native to my language), and as i walked away from them, i realized how absurd i must have sounded when i told myself that i couldnt be happier if i got a bottle of that creed. I ended upbuying just a cool water and got immense joy from it.

    I know its a long post and im maybe off-topic, but if you have 670$ to spend on a fragrance, think of the joy you could give to other people who are needy and need us.

    Ofcourse you are entitled to your own opinion and i mean no offence whatsoever and im sure the xerjoff may be a fine scent, but trust me the happiness i got, was unlike any other and if anyone has experienced that joy, you know what im talking about.

    Regards.

    this thread is a classic:

    1- if you have to ask...

    2- you're not Xerjoff's target market



    If you like it & can afford it, buy it.

    If not, walk away.

    ohh yeah, don't try Irisss. It's one of the best Iris &.costs more than Richwood.

    I own a bottle, and wouldn't hesitate to buy another if I were to run out.

    It's a bargain. $195.00 savings over a bottle of Clive Christian #1.

    As others have said, if you have the money and you love it then its worth it.

    For that you could have 2 - 3 other high end fragrances. But if you like Richwood more than the 2 - 3 other fragrances you would have bought, then it doesn't make sense to pass on this because of the price.

    This may be treasured forever. 3 of crap is crap.

    However, asking others if you should spend $700 is not going to get you anywhere... The money is yours alone, so you need to determine that for yourself when dealing with a dollar amount that most people here would really not feel comfortable spending on that.

    The 17/17 range is definitely worth the money, sublime quality
    Elle being my favourite (strange but true)

    I believe a lot of money goes for the bottle, average 5.3 euro per ml.
    If u buy the discovery set, u are paying average 3.2 euros per ml.
    So if u can find someone to take the other miniatures,
    U can buy,say, 3 or 4 discovery sets so u will get around 40 ml
    for 3 bottles.
    U can try the sit board perhaps.

    To the OP,
    Like any other fragrance at any price, only when you sample and are sure you like it enough and can truly afford it why not.
    Better yet if you can afford it AND can spare some to also give to charity then perfect.
    Also you can participate in a split on it or buy and sell decants to recover some of the cost.

    Hey,
    Thanks a lot for your kind words sir, im sure all of us are just made the same,
    its just that a few have more chances and the others dont, if those of us are
    lucky enough and have had our good times, it would not hurt us one bit to try
    and extend that happiness to someone else.

    All im tryin to say is while 200$ worth of perfume would have just made me happy,
    the same amount of money made about 40-50 people happy,
    I still spend that money which i was going to spend, but just that one change in the way
    i used it has given me a memory so powerful, that i doubt orignal santal could ever evoke.

    Regards.
