    Nio - think it's quite pleasant smelling.
    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 my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Uden, out of the several I've tested so far, it's the only one I like!

    Irisss (17/17) - why would be because it's one of the most flawlessly executed and crisply fresh takes on orris I've ever smelled.

    For reference, I'm (obviously) only picking from those I've tried, which are:

    Dhofar
    Naxos
    Zefiro
    More Than Words
    Nio
    Irisss
    Richwood
    Damarose
    Lira
    Ivory Route
    Al-Khatt

    Not a huge fan of the house, overall.

    Among others, in no particular order (strictly based on personal testing experiences) XJ Renaissance 1861, Nio, Uden, Kobe, Oroville Tobacco, mostly and simply due to being quite a fan of such fragrance types/styles

    This is a tough one - Xerjoff has several excellent fragrances and picking just one is... cruel and unusual punishment! But if I had to pick one *today*, I think I’d vote for Alexandria II. It’s unlike anything else in their lineup, and oh so good... Big thumbs up from me.

    Probably Mefisto.

    Out of Nio, Kobe and Mefisto.

    Although Kobe is definitely growing on me.

    Uden by far to my nose. Got rid of it recently cause I'm narrowing down my fragraces but it's worth a bottle for sure

    Have Naxos, 1861 R., and Ivory Route right now. Had Nio. Still ones I haven't even tried yet also.

    If I had to pick right now based on smell, from what I've tried, and not price or exclusiveness or whatever.. Naxos or Ivory Route.

    The drydown of Naxos VS the opening of Ivory Route? Haha.

    And how could I forget about Al-Khatt?! It's good stuff - but it's more challenging than these others. Been planning to pickup another bottle - sold my other one, bah.

    In terms of wearability - Nio by far.

    In terms of creativity - I would probably lean towards 1861 Zefiro.

    Would definitely be between Kobe and Uden for me, but if choosing only one, it would have to be Kobe, for several reasons.

    It's a wonderful neroli fragrance, and I love it....even though neroli is typically not one of my favorite notes. The overall scent is rather unusual and original smelling, to me, as I can not think of anything else quite like it. Its scent is full and encapsulating; you will not have any trouble smelling it on yourself all day long. But make sure you do not spray too much!

    Xerjoffs are typically very powerful fragrances, but Kobe's strength is off the charts, for me. You hear the phrase "less is more" with some fragances? Well, that definitely applies to Kobe (and several others in the Xerjoff line).

    I get fantastic longevity and projection from just 1-2 sprays of Kobe.

    Homme and Richwood up there at the top, but my vote goes for Pikovaya Dama because of versatility to wear anywhere, all day longevity and perfect sillage.Clean with panache.

    Your comment here made me re-check the notes and... I just ordered a bottle of it 30 seconds ago - blind buy - just going by your recommendation. I'm holding you responsible. ;-)

    not tried many but probably Nio. love 1861 but find it just a little less wearable. wouldn't mind trying a few others from the line including Richwood and the new Cruz II with the tropical notes.

    Same fragrance, same reason.
    Iris Silver Mist was always my reference iris until I tried the Xerjoff. Irisss takes it to another level.

    I agree. No scent comes near to it - not just from Xerjoff.

    But just now I'm waiting for my four Micallef samples, who knows...

    I have what I'd call a value problem with Xerjoff.
    It's very apparent with 40 knots. If it costed 100$ I can see myself adoring it.

    It's not even that I can't afford it. It would be an insult to my intelligence paying that much for it. I couldn't enjoy it fully knowing how much I've overpayed. I'd felt like I've been outsmarted by their marketing team.

    Nio is great.
    Renaissance is amazing! (I got it for ~125$).
    Fiero is very nice.

    Ok you've got me. I really like the house overall.
