Chris Maurice, Jacques Flori, Miroslav Petkov, Angeline Poubeau Leporine, Christian Carbonnel, Laura Santander, and Mathieu Nardin collaborated on Xerjoff fragrances.

I usually don’t brag about a brand unless other industry titans highly regard it. Sergio Momo’s luxury Italian fragrance house “Xerjoff,” founded in 2006, is one of the few niche fragrance houses that I genuinely believe has something special about them, not only in their scents but also in their excellent perfume packaging. Sergio Momo founded the brand in order to combine the most luxurious materials to complement affluent global lifestyles through a blend of old-world craftsmanship, rare raw materials, and a contemporary artistic sensibility.

Xerjoff’s commitment to using the finest ingredients and their dedication to craftsmanship have earned them a reputation for creating truly unique and luxurious fragrances.

This attention to detail and passion for their craft sets Xerjoff perfume company apart from other fragrance houses, making them a favorite among discerning perfume enthusiasts worldwide

Spring Favorite: Xerjoff Fatal Charm

Xerjoff Fatal Charm

Let’s begin with my springtime favorite perfume. Xerjoff has a wide range of powdery florals, and I have several favorites. But I must mention “Fatal Charm,” which is both charming and delightful scent. This is a bouquet of buttery orris, powdery florals, fresh aldehydes, and feather-like soft vanilla.

Because of the opening notes of uncluttered aldehydes and satin-finished creamy white florals, the ultra-feminine composition leaves the most beautiful sheen on your skin. Soon after, the unwrinkled powdery veil of orris butter is released, accompanied by the lustrous tobacco blossom, which adds a twisted charm of semi-spicy, honeyed nuance.

On your skin, the Xerjoff fragrance becomes more vanilla and powdery, and someone who enjoys powdery florals for spring couldn’t have made a better choice than Fatal Charm. Its projection and longevity are out of this world. It is, without a doubt, one of the longest-lasting Xerjoffs I’ve tried.

Orris root, aldehydes, powdery notes, floral notes, ambergris, and tobacco blossom are the keynotes.

Xerjoff Accento Overdose & Pikoyava Dama: For an Invigorating Summer

Summer needs something uplifting, a mood booster that is sparkly and lively. It’s a season everyone looks forward to and the most joyous of them all. For summer, I love my exotic floral scents with a bit of a fruity touch and lots of aldehydes with a powdery hint. “Accento Overdose” and “Pikoyava Dama” are two of my summer essential perfumes that are irreplaceable and impeccable. 

“Accento Overdose” starts with an absolutely decadent fruity notes and builds an emotional underpinning as a preamble to the most exotic entry of Jasmine Sambac and Aldehydes, which exudes nothing but an unconditional grace with luminosity and green facets. The Lily of the Valley adds a charismatic dimension in conjunction with a pop of Rose on the bed of a fresh, highly saturated aromatic tincture of Eucalyptus and coumarin green balsamic Pine. As the name suggests, the scent is an overdose of elegance and beauty.

Key Notes: Fruity notes, Aldehydes, Green notes, Lily of the Valley, Jasmine sambac, Eucalyptus, and Pine

Xerjoff Ivory Route: An Autumn Must-Have

Xerjoff Ivory Route

We have now entered the most vibrant and lovely season. Autumn’s atmosphere and breeze are said to have unspoken healing powers. On a gloomy, cold autumn afternoon, you take a walk through the crunchy leaves, hike through the woods accompanied only by the growling slosh of the creeks, or simply sit in solitude in a park as you sip your hot coffee. Every street corner resembles a painting.

No other fragrance is more appropriate for autumn than “Ivory Route,” and I feel like my words cannot do this spicy, vanillic, and woody patchouli scent justice. To truly appreciate the complexity of this composition, one must first experience its aroma. This is an absolutely stunning, seasoned patchouli with an exceptionally nuanced character. Patchouli has a warm aroma with a hint of freshness. Spicy notes in perfumery can be tricky, but in the case of Ivory Route, I can only say one word about the spices: “decadent.” All I can say is try the Ivory route this fall and see if it tickles your fancy.

Patchouli, spices, and woody notes are the main notes.

Xerjoff Starlight and Alexandria III: To Keep You Warm This Winter

Winter can be bitterly cold, but it does provide some warmth. It’s the season for fun, family, spirituality, and celebration. I wanted to include at least one gourmand category in this article, and what season is better than winter to wear your sweetest perfumes? I enjoy the cardamom note, but finding a dominant cardamom scene that feels and smells realistic is rare. Xerjoff has a number of cardamom-forward scents, but the one that stood out to me the most was “Starlight,” and what a delightful cardamom scent it is!

Because of the rose’s inherent powderiness, the Alexandria III fragrance leans powdery. A seductive, voluminous, and mind-boggling oriental and woody sensation then follows the scent. If you want to go with anything from Xerjoff, this is your winter date-night rosy oud.

Rose, lavender, cedar, palisander rosewood, Laotian oud, Thai oud, vanilla, sandalwood, and amber are the main notes.
