George Clooney or Bruce Wayne? It doesn't matter, we love them both!
A gentleman fragrance.
Absolutely!

But not one whose wearer enters his environment in the impressive or beguiling sense, but one who demonstrates with self-confident restraint and without further action unmistakably that he is to be reckoned with - without Latin lover appearance or top dog behavior.
It's a scent that Cary Grant might have worn, or David Niven, to name two of Hollywood's most endearing actors.
For our days, I chose George Clooney because he is universally known and represents the outgoing, charming and engaging American. Bruce Wayne, better known of course as Batman, also represents - albeit drawn in an idealized handsome way - standing firmly on the ground with both feet; immovable and with integrity.
Actually, I was first going to name Bruno Brazil instead of Bruce Wayne; but fear that the tall, white-blond, sincere and superior action hero with the angular face is known to rather few.
In the end, though, both fantasy characters best represent what I imagine a gentleman to be, despite their professional activities, among other things...

The fragrance opens massive with all' its dark ingredients; but also skillfully brings parallel and not at all restrained, a wonderful (!) Green freshness, which it needs to send the fragrance not immediately in the Orient.
Cedars, accompanied by well-dosed incense, take the vanguard and thus leave a little room for musk and coffee and the other adjuncts; however, these line up again quickly and leave only a shy, apologetic smile.
A small kindness is shown by the juniper berries to the pepper, which, according to its nature, rushes forward from the start to let its surroundings know that it is there. It will be difficult to convince him that he is not alone in a wide field. In fact, he doesn't even want to make room for anyone! But, would you believe it, even our pepper is capable of learning; after a while convinced, he agrees to form a triumvirate with the cedars and the incense.
This combination determines the entire course of the fragrance and has unfolded after about half an hour to a voluminous, yet also soft and very masculine fragrance, whose feathery, mild sweetness only serves to keep the pepper gently in check.

It may be in the first quarter of an hour quite often the impression that here was used by everything "too much"; lovelessly and indifferently mixed together according to the motto "let's see what happens". Exactly that, however, is perhaps intended.
The impression Golden Green leaves behind is like an uneven path, of which you don't know where it leads at the beginning. A little perplexed then but entered and followed, he makes curious and it is a quiet pleasure to pass the rocky corners and curves and to set off smiling on the journey; just exactly according to the motto: "let's see 'times, what happens"!

Fresh juniper with funky raw coffee
My third sampling from the Xerjoff Coffee Break is the most recent entry Golden Green from 2020 (after Golden Dallah and Golden Moka in 2018), which, like the others, has a slightly funky raw coffee vibe with a fairly robust bright and fruity side of juniper, pink pepper, cardamom, and musk. It almost smells tropical, with a guava/mango/papaya vibe that is sweet and green, but there are no such listed notes. It has a resinous side to it, as well, yielding a sort of funky cannabis-meet-fresh coffee center with fruity, sweet, resinous, and semi-spicy aspects to it as well. Overall, it’s pretty agreeable, still being more cold-weather-leaning, like other Coffee Break entries, while, like Golden Moka, being more versatile and year-round-friendly than Golden Dallah.

It’s my least favorite of the three Coffee Break offerings, but it’s still quite good, overall, being a quirky, neat mix (like the others) and coming off fairly unique; it does not immediately remind me of any other fragrances. It seems be sold only through the Xerjoff website for €197 for 50ml, in line with the pricing of the other two entries, but not via a US retailer. (Xerjoff ships fairly quickly to the US from Italy, though)

A slightly sweet, creamy fruity-spicy Mid season fragrance, balanced by a warm green-earthy woody base. Complex and unique. Male-oriented.
