Nio perfume from the Shooting Stars Collection is a refreshing stroll through the southern Italian countryside. Rich and tasty Calabria bergamot and neroli are mixed with mysterious spicy notes of cardamom, nutmeg and pink pepper. This unique combination is blended with a dry woody base of cedar and Guaiac wood, Haiti vetiver, amber and Indian patchouli to create a timeless blend of romantic memories. Nio is a lasting example of elegance and style.

I have always liked fragrances, but I am recent to the "fragcom" and my nose is still becoming educated. I have an appreciation for any fragrance that smells good, however, I really did not understand "Quality" until you smell a fragrance of Superior quality vs. what you're used to - in my case, primarily "designer" fragrances and a handful of niches houses. Its like not understanding 'cold' until you have an absence of heat. Once I sampled Nio (and Renaissance, Naxos and Uden), I truly understood what a supposed high-quality fragrance was. The blending of the notes is exceptional and you can clearly tell they're authentic ingredients. It's as if the Neroli and Bergamot is sitting directly in front of you. While it is rather linear, it truly comes into its own after about 20-30 minutes where the blending just really takes off. This is a beautiful fragrance and I intend to add a full bottle to my collection. I am now a certified Xerjoff fan and have yet to smell a house of better quality.
Good fragrance for the summer time. For me however just reminds me of pinesole after awhile. Definitely sample, not a blind buy.
this is one of the most lovely Fragrances I've worn to date
But i can't help but be reminded of Clive Christian "L" for Men
Slightly..well worth it for me.
Excellent Citrus Fragrance! Very well blended & balanced. Can't go wrong with this one. Thank you Scent Split
