At perfume exhibition in Milan - Esxence 2015, Xerjoff presented for the first time his collection of three perfumes dedicated to 150th anniversary of unification of Italy and is inspired by wealth, beauty and heritage that this country possesses. The collection of XJ 1861 encompasses three fragrances XJ 1861 Renaissance, XJ 1861 Zefiro and XJ 1861 Naxos each of which provides a part of beautiful Italy: Renaissance celebrates this period in Italy, Naxos Sicily, while Zefiro celebrates eternal Rome!
XJ 1861 Renaissance provides a luminous bouquet of aromas enchanting us with freshness of citrusy presence of tangerine, Calabrian bergamot, lemon and petit grain. The heart of the composition is transparent and floral, composed of Bulgarian rose and lily of the valley, with added dynamics of cold mint. The base contributes to depth and created the body of the composition with woody shades of patchouli, cedar, amber and musk to round up the composition. XJ 1861 Renaissance was launched in 2011.
Bergamot, Mandarin, Lime, and Petitgrain, Rose, Lily of the Valley, Mint, Cedar, Patchouli, Amber and Musk.
Great scent but 1861 NAXOS is better a great alternative if a person didn't want to spend the coin for 1861 NAXOS.. This is a citrus lovers fragrance and I'm talking plenty of it definitely worth sampling.
Renaissance by Xerjoff is beautiful hands down. I've had women catching whiffs of this fragrance that smiled at me like the Cheshire cat from Alice in wonderland. I own Xerjoff Nio which is awesome, but the females are drawn to Renaissance. I implore you guys to get yourself a sample of this for the spring and summer.
I didn't care much for this one. I will definitely go with Nio over this.
