Scent twin of Bal d' Afrique
The fragrance does not unfold with a small spray, only with 4 spray pokes he revealed himself to me completely. At the beginning is a light sweetness paired with a freshness to be heard. Afterwards it joins such a nice rounded creaminess to it, nothing fun. It smells clean, delicate and just hygienic sensuality. After a while I wonder, what does it remind you of so strongly? Ah bal d'afrique by Byredo- contrary to the top note, almost completely the same (win the compositions). My companion was also taken and could the perfume even 4h later still Vernehmen. Arrived home, I have heard the glitter on the neck (shootings stars- refined). The scent is unisex, lighter hang in the feminine department. Now the only question is Byredo or Xerjoff? Ultimately a question of the wallet

No scent for dirty sparrows
Hello my fellow fragrance sniffers and welcome to my commentary on Ibitira from the Shooting Stars range by XerJoff. I guess the first question most might ask about fragrances (so besides how the scent smells, of course) would be what the name could mean or what it's about. According to the description, the fragrance is supposed to speak the "language of flowers", with which I personally could not speak a word for lack of botanical knowledge :D
It's supposed to give off an aura composed of a great variety, but also rare and mysterious flowers or elements. Sounds nice and all, but let's see how it smells too!

The term Ibitira is also said to occur in meteorites, but a search for this was a bit involved, as over 90% of all results from a search point to the scent here, which means more and more people are slowly becoming scent freaks, yeah yeah... :D
If this keeps up, you can hardly find anything in Google and Co. without landing on 100 scent sites or blogs right away, just because at some point someone named their scent after something specific like an object, element or place :D

Anyway, the scent is, as already hinted at in my title, not for people who like clean and soapy scents, but more on that later. Now first to the fragrance!

The fragrance:
The fragrance begins very powdery and slightly sweet. This is the "work" of the violets, which just radiate beautifully sweet-powdery and floral, but you could also think here at the beginning directly to an iris. And since some have already mentioned it: Yes, the beginning is indeed also reminiscent of Prada's "Infusion d'Iris". Just a little later, you smell lemons, whose appearance gives the scent a nice freshness. That doesn't last long, though, so the scent goes back to more of a powdery vibe and is more reminiscent of the Prada scents again. With that comes this feeling of cleanliness as the scent starts to smell a little more soapy and clean.
Here, too, one smells like the Prada fragrance orange blossom or neroli, although with less intensity.
The fragrance remains basically until the end as described above and thus smells throughout clean and pure, and thus also quite nice.

The sillage and the durability:
The sillage is okay, not very weak, not particularly strong either, would have to be able to smell it up close for a while though. The durability is quite good, because I could smell the fragrance even after eight to ten hours on my skin (although he had become quite weak to the late hours of course).

The flacon:
The bottle is once again very nice to look at. The bottle is slightly puffy and has a rectangular metal plaque on the front with the brand's logo. The brand name has been engraved on the golden neck and on top sits the lid, which is similar in shape to the crowns of Lower Egypt. I like the bottle very much!

Conclusion:
Okay, so I liked the fragrance very much, after all, it reminds me most of some Prada fragrances, especially just the "Infusion d'Iris" (whether the old or the new fragrance). The scent is very soft and powdery, which might appeal to most. But what some might not like so much is the somewhat soapy smelling, clean component of the fragrance, which just smells quite clean. And exactly this property of a fragrance might not like some, either because they do not want to be reminded because of the Corona pandemic due to the hygiene measures also still in fragrances of soaps or just by design dirt finches or dirt sparrows are, whereby the last reason is rather probably more likely, he he (but hey, no matter whether finches or sparrows, they are nevertheless all cute :D).

Anyway, the fragrance but for all who like such fragrances yet, quite worth a look. For those who have Pradas Infusion d'Iris or similar fragrances, the fragrance could possibly be less worthwhile, because it is quite similar to these aforementioned fragrances.

For me, by the way, the fragrance is an all-rounder, but with a tendency for warmer days, which you could wear both at work (I think low doses he will not bother anyone, and even if you should bathe in it, you would still smell like freshly showered :D), as well as in leisure. Alone to go out he is perhaps a bit unspectacular turned out.

Well, that's it again! Have a nice evening, remain hygienically mindful and clean and see you soon :)

It's beautiful to kneel on...
Stunning... I can think of no better word for Xerjoff Ibitira. Ibitira smells incredibly beautiful, beguiling and just as expensive as Ibitira is...

Everyone who knows me knows that Sergio Momo is the absolute god among perfumers. For more than 20 years I have been interested in very high quality perfumes... Xerjoff, or Sergio Momo, has managed to catapult 3 fragrances onto my personal Top 5 list of my favourite perfumes of all time. One fragrance is Ibitira from the Shooting Stars collection...

I must honestly say that I hardly or only briefly smell a small similarity with Prada Iris d, Infusion. From the heart notes on, these two fragrances separate completely and Ibitira has from the heart notes on, in my opinion, about as much to do with Prada's Iris d, Infusion as I have with Mother Theresa...

Ibitira has violet, orange blossom and lemon in the top notes. I smell most clearly the violets and a touch of orange blossom. I personally don't smell lemon. But under the heart notes, iris is a very soft iris in perfect balance with neroli and damask rose... The base is rich musk and cedar with a hint of vanilla
A dream scent, super feminine and super exclusive. For me the fragrance has something of super expensive wellness about it, something cuddly that catapults the soul into heaven...

Shelf life is great, Sillage is moderate... Ibitira is discreet luxury for the happy wearer, including the close surroundings.

Powdery - White Flowers - Musk
Ibitira starts very fresh with lemon and a green smell. After some minutes, the floral accords start to appear. It's very powdery, the iris is beautiful.
In the dry down, the musk is very noticeable, with the cedarwood.
Ibitira is very well blended, but it is almost just a skin scent, a fresh-floral and powdery scent.
It is much more suitable for a woman but a man can pull it easily.

Who was first? ...the chicken or the egg?
As I spray it on, I notice the amazing similarity to Prada's Infusion d'Iris (2007)...
Since both were born in 2007, the question arises: who was first? The chicken or the egg? ;-P

I like to take a closer look at the two fragrances and try to crystallize the differences....

In a direct comparison of the two fragrance pyramids, I notice first of all that both fragrances have orange blossom, iris, vertiver and cedar wood intus... You can also smell them with both scents.

But Ibitira also has other high-quality components such as rose, white flowers, neroli, musk and bourbon vanilla, which IDI did not have in 2007.
But IDI 2007 still has galbanum, mandarin, pistachio leaf, benzoin and frankincense with it...

In the beginning - the first 5-10 minutes - it is really difficult to keep the two scents apart. In both cases I am directly surrounded by an almost identical green citric note... wonderfully fresh... Orange blossom, vertiver and neroli in Ibitira, mandarin in IDI... Amazing, the resemblance!

But after that you can see some differences:

In my opinion Ibitira is a bit "faster to the point" than Prada's IDI 2007, because I can perceive the beautiful and powdery iris faster, after only about 10 minutes... At IDI 2007 I can perceive the green-citric top note a little longer, about 15-20 minutes, until the beautiful powdery iris follows...

After the mentioned 10 minutes of the top note, followed by the beautiful powdered iris, I find that Ibitira resembles more and more the Indusion d'Iris Abolue... - one of my absolute favorites :-) Because although it is not listed, I can see in Ibitira's heart note, just like in IDI Absolue, a beautiful resinous note... Also here the similarity is absolutely amazing...!

The IDI did not have this resin in 2007. But something smoky, which Ibitira (and also IDI Absolue) does not have at all...

With Ibitira I am surrounded by a beautiful, delicate, powdery resinous iris veil... I mean, also to be able to recognize the rose very delicately... and something cherry-like, which, according to the pyramid, does not seem to be there... And exactly in this point Ibitira now also stands out from Prada's IDI Absolue...
Because IDI Absolue ends with the powdery-resin iris... But Ibitira goes further here... the iris is joined by a gentle and really delicate sea of flowers and the fragrance is now powdery-resiny-floral on my skin...

In summary, one can say that Ibitira smells of IDI 2007 at the beginning and rises to IDI Absolue after about 10 minutes... But then it rises further up and develops with meteotite speed to an independent and unique scent...!

Jacques Flori has done a wonderful job here... perfectly interwoven components, perfectly matched to each other and grandiosely finished...!

I think Prada's infusions are absolutely beautiful, but Ibitira is even better, which is also reflected in the price... and I think, rightly...

If you love infusions as much as I do, you can't get past Ibitira...

I hope I have given some courage to the still undecided infusion lovers...
Ibitira has got a permanent place in my collection and I absolutely do not regret it... Have courage, you will certainly not regret it :)

Musky-Orrisey Perfume Uno
Blind-bought this 'fume fræ Notino, as they still had some of the pre-repackaging bottles (the tapering oblong ones), which they were selling at a substantially reduced, but still very high, price. Got it home, squirted some on cardboard - thought "doesn't seem a very big deal really". Intraspired @ it again a couple of days later - thought "at least it's got good tenacity". Decided to restrain myself fræ prematurely giving it a run-out: I didn't want to spoil the experience; as there was a whispering in my mind to the effect that, though it didn't ¯wow¯ me, it was actually thoroughly excellent; and besides I'd thitherto always taken extremely well to Xerjoff 'fumes, although I had always been able to tell my liking instantly.

Anyway, today I decided was the time for giving it its excurration (run-out): gave myself a generous few spritzes of it, resolutely entering into my best zen-like, °ain't no thing° state of mind; carefully let the 'fume come to me in its own time, not chasing after it or grasping at it & all that - blah blah etc: then ... it did come to me and ... oh my Wotan-Iluvatar-Primeumaton!! Whence be this sublime heavenly düft wherewithal I be presently espargenomenon!!?

Well, it lived up to my best expectations, as uw have possibly gathered, if uw can decypher the exclamations of rapture. This is one ^seriously^ gorgeous 'fume!

It is very much a musky-orrisey 'fume - a synergy of two of my °swoon-factor-11° notes. It seems to be a characteristic of Xerjoff 'fumes that they contain a musk that is sheerly °to die for°, and this 'fume does not let that mark down in the slightest degree.

There is a 'fume that this one mickle remindeth me of, actually, and that is ~Eclix~ by Tiziana Terenzi - another decidedly musky-orrisey 'fume.

I've just had a look @ the notes-list herein; and I see that orris is not listed, whereas iris ^is^. Still, I've gathered that it's quite common for orris to get y-lumpèn along with iris, ~iris~ being an °umbrella term° comprising both. Speaking more strictly though, I do aver that it's orris rather than iris.

Very beautiful floral powder. To the opinion of resemblance to Prada Iris, I fully agree, but at the same time I would like to say not.
