Look for....
Carrie Bradshaw is a shoe addict... I'm definitely a perfume addict. Although the smell of leather shoes, leather bags and leather jackets is also like perfume for me.
I'm still shocked... I did it. I took the Xerfoff double pack out of my Christmas bonus. I owe the wonderful Amber Star, only a few drops were still in the bottle, to sniff out and my fragrance centre struck directly the have-will alarm. Then I researched how to get the scent, because I live in a scented province.....but the surroundings are beautiful and I don't want to leave here:-))
Then I found out that the Amber Star only exists with his white brother as mentioned before.
At the thought of spending so much money on a scent I got heart racing......but the have-will truly be stronger.
Black and white moved in with me and I have to say the white one overpowered me. It was direct love.
If love would be a fragrance then it would be Star Musk for me......it is soft and creamy in the first place, soft-powdery and sweet, slightly woody.... also mysterious, mystical.
I find it difficult to name the individual fragrance components. For me they are wonderful creamy-sweet, lightly roasted clouds, or even better a creamy-white cashmere sweater to cuddle in.
A fragrance to close your eyes and dream.
The durability I would judge with approx. 8h the Sillage is not exaggerated but well perceptible
This fragrance and its black brother have a place of honour on my fragrance chest and the price - what the hell - woman lives only once - or?

BUTTERWEICH
Yeah, I did it. & spent a bunch of money to get my hands on & welcome the Holy Grail. I now get to welcome Amber Star & Star musk into my collection and can't quite realize it yet. I am clouded with a guilty conscience, yet also pure joy when I look at the two bottles like this. God how much I love the look of the black / white siblings.

But now to the fragrance: I have never smelled such a soft and creamy musk scent. The title sums it up: buttery soft! It's floral and sweet, but seems so insanely classy. This scent has me hooked. I detect a very slight spiciness, which I really like. By the way, my partner also likes it very well on me and I was already allowed to take the one or other compliment.

These two fragrances I will carry out with great pleasure. It makes the day, the evening, the situation or whenever I wear it to something very special

Alpha and Omega
Alpha and Omega. Two very popular terms. Not least, these words serve as a symbol (The Omega brand as a Swiss watch movement) or as a definition of an archetype (Alpha as the terminology for leader, highest in rank).
They form the beginning and the end of the Greek alphabet and have a not insignificant importance in Christianity. Simply stated, Christ presented Himself as first and last, thus inferring an identity of essence to God. Described differently or more freely, the concepts of alpha and omega can also be translated as beginning and end.

- sorry, I don't want to bore you with history, but is now also over. -

I think the basic idea translates well to Amber Star and Star Musk.
I had already described Amber Star. My preliminary judgment turned out very well, but was only preliminary, because I also wanted to put this in context with Star Musk. Finally, Xerjoff proclaims the fragrances as a pair, for me like Alpha and Omega.

Star Musk is what I consider to be a very bright fragrance. I don't know why, but I definitely have the feeling of smelling fresh white laundry. Was it Persil, which advertised with long clothes horse, far-reaching green meadow and white laundry? I do not remember.

At the beginning, fresh floral notes are present. According to my nose, a minimal citric resonates subliminally, but may well deceive me here. Tangerine, which I eat moreover very gladly, I perceive well. The start is a little too present. Too loud, too engaging. A little more quiet would have done well here.
Immediately we approach the heart that opens with patchouli and is great accompanied by vetiver and iris. Cinnamon I do not really perceive - but is not really tragic, because I do not like cinnamon and have never understood why people eat rice pudding and cinnamon ;).
The overall artwork is strongly interwoven, so that its individual components are difficult to differentiate. Vanilla has an accompanying tone right now and gets stronger with time. I like vanilla very much so that makes me happy. Musk still wafts shimmeringly through my nose at some point and it fades out after long hours.
Longevity and sillage are similar to Amber Star. However, I like the minimally better.

Taken for itself, we have so two good fragrances, no good - very good fragrances.
But why now Alpha and Omega?

Basic idea behind the concept was certainly to achieve perfection through both fragrances. By layering they interact with each other and show again other qualities. Their true strength, so to speak.
Now it shows for me that they are the beginning standing on their own, combined the destination of the journey.
Layered we have an intangible, great harmonious fragrance that I absolutely love to wear, if not always.
Especially since the 10 meters against the wind to smell :)

Vllt recommend I the customer service yes, times about the idea to think to laser an addition on the quite beautiful art objects. ;)

Xerjoff. You've done a great job!

A holiday on Lake Maggiore
Star Musk is light, Star Musk is gentle.

Star Musk gives the impression of a weak-breasted fragrance. Because many fragrances that are so gentle are weak-breasted. And when you smell this wonderfully round composition, you simply cannot imagine a room-filling sillage. Think!

The truth is different. This fragrance is - despite its round softness - a real breaker. It fills a room with enthusiasm. And not only those who like the scent. When friends of mine wear it, I can perceive it already from meters. The fragrance is one of the few fragrances that manage to fill rooms with such a gentle and light scent character.

Musk scents can be roughly divided into two categories. There is once the sharp, almost pungent musk. Like in Roberto Ugolini's Blue Sude Shoes. I don't think it's as bad as the negative word "stinging" would suggest (the top note needs to be improved, I think). The other category is that of soft musk, which I am not the biggest fan of as a lover of oriental scents.

With Musk Star, however, things are a little different: the gentleness is what makes this fragrance so special. The opening is certainly a bit citric and floral, and gives the soft musk a touch of additional lightness. This makes this fragrance a light scent, but it makes its cronies - often to be found in the designer fragrance segment - smile at their anti-elegance. For me, the fragrance is a fragrance for the holidays. For holidays, on an Italian or Swiss lake, in one of the old-fashioned five-star hotels. Which can be combined well with the Amber Star. But it can also stand on its own.

In the dry-down, the fragrance becomes more vanilla and creamy overall. But in a way that doesn't take away the Italian summer lifestyle.

Conclusion: The association with my holidays in Italy is always a high compliment to a fragrance for me. You can read why in my commentary on Alexandria II. It is suitable for every occasion that somehow demands a special elegance, but at the same time forbids obtrusiveness. With this fragrance you can be clearly perceived without attracting attention. An excellent performance by the perfumer. I have to see where I can get one. Because I like Amber Star, too, but it's not nearly as beautiful as Star Musk. Cheers

Mediocre with a terrible top note
The Star series of Xerjoff I wanted to test for a long time and last Friday I finally received my eagerly awaiting bottlings. Amber Star was unfortunately not at all mine, especially the problem with the very bad silage was sobering for me. I'll test Star Musk on Sunday, but I wanted to give it some time and make some notes. It's always a tricky business when a very popular fragrance gets contrarian reviews, so I felt it necessary to give it some thought before writing this review.

In advance, however, I can say Star Musk pleases me after the top note much better than Amber Star. Now I would like to explain briefly why Star Musk but also got only 6.5 points from me. The top note is really terrible somehow musty, flowery and sweet. If it were only the top note, Star Musk would have scored 4 points from me. After 30 minutes, the top note is fortunately no longer really existent. I like the spices and woods that come in now, but not very well. I can detect clove, cinnamon, vanilla, sandalwood, benzoin and opopanax here as floral and fresh notes: Iris and Vetiver. Unfortunately, with the very strong musk, this combination is only mediocre for me and, like Amber Star, feels a bit stuffy to me. If the top note had not disappointed me so Star Musk would be a solid fragrance with 8 points for me.

Unfortunately, Star Musk could not convince me final, especially if I look at the price must be more offered here, especially a more harmonious vote.
The durability is Xerjoff typical very good. I could smell Star Musk even after 12 hours still gently on my arm. The silage is solid, but becomes with me after 4-5 hours already almost skin, before that the silage was a little under an arm's length.

A silk perfume that comes across musky and powdery. This base is enhanced with a subtle layer of amber and a delicious doses of florals.

Initially bright fruity, this slightly soapy, powdery spicy-floral Mid season fragrance settles to a gentle sweet resinous-woody base.

Powdery amber with a woody drydown. Scent is unisex & fall-winter, but as a stand-alone, it's very plain and has poor value.
