1888 (NKNN)
• XERJOFF CASAMORATI 1888 •

After a couple of great first experiences with Xerjoff (Nio, Naxos, More Than Words, Uden Overdose), it's time to sidestep to their Casamorati imprint as well. 1888 is the only sample I have at the moment. Yesterday, I saw 1888 appear in instafraghead's top 5 most addicitive fragrances post, so I figured it would be a good time to sample it.

1888 is clearly a strong, punchy fragrance, as reflected by the color of the fragrance itself. It's a warm spicy scent, with a peppery amber with floral or even herbal touch. My first impression was that of a cola syrup scent with a herbal or minty backdrop. After a few minutes, it becomes warmer and deeper, and the spices become stronger. It actually reminds me of a deeper, higher quality and spicier version of the L'Oreal Men Exper Barber Club products that I use on my beard. Although that's supposed to be cedar wood, but it does surprise me that 1888 doesn't list more wood notes other than sandalwood and birch. Later in the drydown is becomes a bit sweeter, which I feel like stems from the patchouli, although I read people say it's a honey-like sweetness, which I can get behind. Especially, because it also gets creamier. Very pleasant and indeed quite an addictive scent.

The longevity is amazing. I did a quick respray during the night, but 24 hours later, including a shower, it's still noticable as a skin scent •

'Once we kissed under liquid skies' - A fragrant feeling of wanderlust
Intro:
Xerjoff. One of the few brands that somehow never really caught my interest before. But probably also because I never really had the opportunity to test the Xerjoff fragrances. They are simply sparsely represented in the perfumeries I know in HH. But I'll start by asking myself (now more than ever) why that is so
The smell:
warm herbaceous vs. peppery hot
flowery vs. woody
creamy vs. rough
Amber and sandalwood vs. patchouli
masculine vs. absolute unisex
italian vs. oriental
Sunset at the sea vs. dry desert sand

The fragrance abstract:
'once we kissed under liquid skies, capering in thunderous squalls
we slept naked by the pines at night
loveblind, lovedrunk
one summer long'
(kasper hate)

Outro:
Despite the impression that I have never seen so many contrasts at once, 1888 seems to me to be all of a piece. The facets fit together like the finest pieces of a puzzle. A noble "feel-good maker" that is nevertheless suitable for everyday use. 1888, where have you been so long?
