    Thanks

    Renaissance is a fragrance for all ages, fruity and bright, also slightly sweet.
    Nio is a more mature scent, green and spicy. (like Creed original vetiver in my opinion)

    I find Nio more masculine than Renaissance. Both are great quality perfumes.

    Not the first Nio vs. Renaissance thread.

    Nio gets my vote. Best citrus in the game imo.
    Olfactory perception is the only sensory faculty that can be completely penetrated by cognition.

    1861 Renaissance of the two, a very nice citrusy mint combo. Both are great choices.

    Renaissance to me. It’s more refined.
    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    I'd choose Nio for myself, but I'd find it hard to recommend one over the other without knowing more about what you're looking for since both are so good.

    I owned both and ultimately moved them both on as they didn’t get much wear. Out of the 2 I personally think Renaissance is better. Nio is really over hyped and has a metallic note I could never get past.

    Might be considered the more boring of the two, but still love Nio. Own and love both though!

    Liking both almost equally much and likely to rate them both as worthy to share the Xerjoff top spot, preferring and likelier to recommend 1861 Renaissance slightly above Nio

    1861 Ren for me. I've owned both more than once, only holding onto 1861 Ren for now.
    It's more complex, has a nice citrus and it has heft/'bass' in the base.

    Nio is nice, but kinda falls flat and becomes... boring & monotonous.

    Nio. But if you want value for money, the other one.

    Nio. It’s a great long lasting refreshing fragrance. I prefer Kobe though which is similar but more neroli heavy.

    Sample then both and see which one resonates

    Given the Xerjoff pricetag, I’d want to know what I was receiving.

    Having sampled both, I think they’re both equally well done.
