    ---------->Parfums De Marly Herod<----------



    Notes:

    Cinnamon, Pepper wood, Osmanthus, Tobacco leaf, Frankincense, Labdanum, Vanilla pod, Woods, Atlas cedar, Vetiver, Patchouli, Iso e super, Cypriol and Musk.


    Opinion: WOOOOOOOW! Oh my, what a fragrance, guys! Like Godolphin and mostly Oajan, Herod completely blew my mind! Parfums de Marly has real heavy-hitters, I must say! Ok, Herod is a woody, spicy, balsamic, sweet scent, but what shines here is tobacco, cinammon and vanilla. I must tell you, guys, the tobacco leaf here is among the best I´ve ever smelled until today!

    From the opening to the dry down, Herod is close being perfect. It stands among the most well blended, refined, and elegant scents I now! This is a true gem! Herod has a balsamic vibe that´s simply amazing, and the woods are a great add, here. It´s warm, luxurious, filled with quality! Herod is powerful, but never offensive or a "in your face" fragrance. It´s strong but smooth, safe and very classy.

    Now, some compare it to Pure Havane and Tobacco Vanille. First of all, I don´t think Herod and Tobacco Vanille are similar (fortunately, as I found TV to be too cloying and heavy). Now, it may have some similarity with Pure Havane, but, with all honesty, it´s much better than the latter. Plus, I do think this is overall a better fragrance than Tobacco Vanille, also.

    The first thing I started to think was: "Is this better than Back to Black?" (as you know, Back to Black is my #2 favorite fragrance ever). I tend to think the latter is still better, but by a very close distance.

    OUTSTANDING! I´m a fan of Parfums of Marly: it´s official!



    Type/Gender: Masculine.

    It´s a masculine scent.


    Season and Purpose: Fragrance to be worn mostly during Fall and Winter, but will be a nice choice for Spring colder days. Occasion wise. I´d say this would work in most occasions. Upper class events, formal, work, date, having dinner with friends. I think this will shine in every special or upper class event, mostly.



    Achilles heel:



    Regarding Performance:

    - Longevity: ~15h
    - Sillage: More than moderate.
    - Projection: More than good.


    Scent: 9.90
    Longevity: 9.55
    Sillage: 8.45
    Projection: 8.35
    Uniqueness: 8.40
    Versatility: 8.75
    --- Overall: 8.91


    Got compliments?
    Yes.


    Would I buy it? Yes!!!

    Price is not cheap (€183 or about $200 for 125 ml), but this is completely worthwhile! Yes, I´d buy!

    ---------->Xerjoff More Than Words<----------



    Notes:

    (Not published, but from some sites, I got this): Rose, Oud, Fruity Notes, Floral Notes, Benzoin, Frankincense, Labdanum, Ambergris and Woody Notes.


    Opinion: Last fragrance of this part. Ending up with the great house of Xerjoff. I had tremendous expectations regarding More than Words. After seeing so many good reviews (mostly from YouTube reviewers), this was a must try. What I have to say? More than Words is a great fragrance overall, but not a "love it to death" case. It´s beautiful, no doubt, but...something seems to miss to consider it a "wowish" scent.

    This fragrance is a spicy, floral (rosy, to my nose), amberish and oudy (not strong, fortunately) scent. It´s refined, beautiful, and in spite if having quality, it does still give me kind of a women´s "designerish/know this scent" fragrance. In spite of all this and thinking that more than words is a very good scent, the floral notes (strong rose notes)/fruity combination somehow makes this fragrance to be on the feminine side. The drydown, it´s the best part of this fragrance, with a beautiful woody/spicy/amberish (still with hints of rose) scent.

    Performance wise, this was the strongest fragrance of this part. Very strong, really! Nice offering from Xerjoff, but not my favorite.



    Type/Gender: Unisex.

    In my opinion, this leans to the feminine side.


    Season and Purpose: I believe this fragrance can be worn during Fall, Winter and Spring. Not a choice for Summer, at least to me. Occasion wise, I´d say this a good fragrance for dates, going out, and special occasions. Not a work choice, for me.



    Achilles heel:



    Regarding Performance:

    - Longevity: ~17h
    - Sillage: Heavy.
    - Projection: Very good.


    Scent: 9.25
    Longevity: 9.65
    Sillage: 8.55
    Projection: 8.55
    Uniqueness: 8.10
    Versatility: 8.30
    --- Overall: 8.74


    Got compliments?
    Yes.


    Would I buy it? No.

    This is an expensive fragrance (€200 or about $220 for 50 ml). Although it´s a very good scent, it´s on the feminine side, so I wouldn´t just wear it often. So, no, I wound´t buy it.

    Ok, part 5 finished! It was fun to do this again.

    I must say that, overall, this was a very good choice of fragrances, judging by the results. None of these fragrances had a scent that I didn´t enjoy. It varied from interesting to mind blowing scents! Performance wise, I´d say it was one of the best, too!

    Will do several rankings, next, and I´ll update the General Overall Ranking of all parts, soon.

    Fantastic reviews.

    For "Parfums de Marly Herod" yes, it is a very good fragrance. When I smelt it first time, two fragrances came into my mind at the same time.... "Back to Black" and "L'Occitane Eau Des Baux".

    Overall, I am totally agree with your ratings for this beautiful scent.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts and reviews with us.

    Yes, I can see that. Although I don´t know L'Occitane Eau Des Baux (intend to do it soon), I don´t find particular similarity with TV. Regarding tobacco, it´s among the best I know! Thanks for your words, my friend.

    Excellent reviews. I agree with most of them. Oajan is excellent for sure. You are a little more enthusiastic about Dia Man than I am, and much less enthusiastic about Fars than I am, but otherwise I mostly agree with you.

    Excellent work - would really like to see another installment soon!
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Xerjoff - Nio
    2. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre

    Great to see you typing, my friend!

    Yes, I really love Dia Man! If only it had Lyric Man´s performance...! As for Fars, I´m not convinced...yet, at least!

    It´s quite possible to do a future part. In fact, I´m thinking about asking for opinions about it in a proper thread.


    Take care, my friend.
