A Slow Sink Into the Cashmeran Sea Depths...
40 Knots opens with a fresh, slightly salty oceanic accord with underlying subtle supporting woody-amber before moving to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart it remains slightly salty oceanic, with a fresh, airy and slightly sharp green accord emerging to meld with the synthetic woody-amber accord that begins as subtle support, then groww as time passes until into the star. During the late dry-down the composition turns slightly powdery, as the woody-amber accord takes the fore as sole star, shedding its green, slightly salty oceanic supporting cast through the finish. Projection is good and longevity very good at over 10 hours on skin.

40 Knots starts off pretty nice smelling, if nothing too groundbreaking with its salty oceanic accord, staying pleasant through its early heart as the additional green accord while a bit synthetic is not so in a bad way, melding quite well with it. Sadly, the composition takes a major turn for the worse as it introduces a dreaded synthethic (in a bad way) woody-amber accord into the mix that has cashmeran written all over it. As time passes the cashmeran gobbles up everything else and spoils what started as at least a mild winner. To its credit, 40 Knots never takes the cashmeran to sickening levels, keeping the unwelcome stuff well in-check throughout, but even so it is just a bit too much for this writer. The base is *all* cashmeran, all the time. The bottom line is the $195 per 50ml bottle 40 Knots starts off mildly interesting and certainly pleasant, only to gradually sink into its cashmeran laden depths, earning an "above average" 2.5 to 3 stars out of 5 rating but an avoid recommendation as too much of its development is wasted in mediocrity to hold one's attention long.

with 40 knots away from the aquatic
Dear Fragrance Crazy !
On the one hand I would like to thank the founder of this site! Meanwhile Parfumo is launched to my fragrance Duden .Not only that it is super informative, but there is here a home for fragrance crazy . You have the feeling that you are not the only one who has developed a passion for good water! :-D Since I am still a commentary virgin, I wanted to change this

So now to the fragrance 40 Knots !
Those who expect an aquatic fragrance will be disappointed. 40 Knots is a feel-good fragrance per Excellance ! It smells salty and woody. One has the feeling to walk along a wooden footbridge at the sea. Do you know when bright fresh wood gives off a sweet smell? That's exactly what 40 Knots reminds me of. It is a pleasant sweetness, not pushy but present .40 knots triggers with me on the one hand security on the other hand also wanderlust. One would like to lie somewhere on the beach and look at the distance of the sea.

Many compare this fragrance with dior's Ambre Nuit and the resemblance is hard to deny, but I find 40 knots more complex. Whether it is perhaps because Xerjoff keeps the ingredients secret, I can judge unfortunately with difficulty.

Also the Sillage and durability is very good for such a lovely fragrance and I find better than with Diors Ambre Nuit. In my opinion a super beautiful fragrance that does not touch and does not even bother you. Buying tip.

Flacon: noble!blue glass bottle with xerjoff typical lid in gold ! makes something here !
Durability: loose 8 hours on clothing after weeks still perceptible

So love me that was my first fragrance comment ! Damn difficult if you don't know exactly what's inside and you smelled this scent the last time years ago!
With the amazingly good comments I have been able to read so far, my comment is very amateurish, but all the beginning is hard and practice makes perfect

Oceans and adventures
Fantastic scent that reminds me of the sea breeze and great adventures in unknown places. Present but not overly imposing, fairly linear. Longevity is good.

Woody - sweet - salty
I can't convince myself to name it an aromatic aquatic, although there's sharp hint of salty water in top reminiscent of nothing related to ocean, but the core of fragrance lurks around sweet aromatic woods and syrupy fruity notes that deliver picturesque of tobacco. Some uncertain hint of oud; which I hesitate to approve; collaborates with this core.

40 Knots is a compliment-bringer king and warm sweet four season fragrance. It's a smart upmarketing of today's inexpensive masculine mainstream fragrances that you skip over in Sephora.

Mainstream aroma transformed into luxury
Some impressions come into my mind when i spray 40 Knots on skin. The first one, which i'll develop further, is that it's aroms is familiar to me, reminding me of a mainstream fragrance not so known and already kind of forgotten, the discontinued Diesel Zero Plus masculine.The second impression is that there is something retro about it which for me seems to be associated with my image of an Yatch Club. And the third is that, altough this has coeherence and it's well done, i suspect that this one of those perfumes where the bottle and presentations costed much more than the fragrance formula itself. On its essential structure, 40 Knots is Zero Plus in a modified form: the cinnamon, the vanilla and the almond heliotrope touch are all there.The main diference is that 40 knots highlights a carnation flower accord, spicy, hot and a little bit powdery and this is the main retro touch that makes me think of the club. Something also gives me a lemon sensation and for some moments is almost if this was an isolated part of coca-cola aroma. There is also a green note in this composition that makes me smell, in an incomplete form, a roses aroma for quite a few seconds. The interesting parts of 40 Knots - the carnation, the coca-cola sensation, the fragmented rose - unfortunately are brief sensations mixes in the aforementioned notes of cinnamon, vanilla and heliotrope, ending in the tipical xerjoff base: a woody, synthetic, sharp and dry aroma. Well, if luxury is in the details, certainly here you are purchasing something like that, just have in mind that this is a mainstream creation modified and packaged to have prestige, which highs it price considerably.
