*** SPLIT: Xerjoff 1861 Naxos ***
Celebrates Sicily and its beauty, and accentuates its Mediterranean character with the composition. Citruses in top notes pose contrast to precious spices suggesting wealth of a unified country, its conquests and dominance. Composition of Naxos opens with classic, airy and fruity citrus notes of bergamot and lemon surrounded with gentle and calming lavender shades. The heart blends sambac jasmine with cinnamon, cashmeran and honey, whose romantic trail is enriched with masculine accords of tobacco and tonka from the base. Vanilla creates a soft and sensual veil by touching flowers, fruit and tobacco leaves.
My thoughts; Pure Havane, Guerlain Tonka Imperiale, more refined, done better. I get tobacco, honey similar to Back to Black by Kilian. A bit of cinnamon w/ a fruity top. Perfect and I mean PERFECT for the fall.
