This limited edition gourmand scent is an olfactory experience like no other. With top notes of bergamot and fresh cardamom, it travels to a comforting heart of almond, cinnamon, and cloves for an irresistibly alluring warmth. The enticing base of cedarwood and amber features flaming balsamic accords that set the senses alight. In true Xerjoff style, this parfum comes to life on the skin, revealing intoxicating hints of precious essences as time goes by.
Top notes are bergamot and cardamom; middle notes are almond, cinnamon and cloves; base notes are amber and cedar.
I’ve never thought to describe a fragrance like this, but Starlight literally sparkles. It’s cozy and spicy, very rich and strong, yet…glittery? Like a chai, yet also champagne. And totally beast mode performance! I love it, perfect for autumn, winter, and early spring. The opening is a true cardamom bomb, and the dry down brings out a delicious milky amber and cedar. Worth the high price tag imo!
As a tentative test, I put a bit of Xerjoff Starlight on my wrist yesterday, and kept catching a whiff of something divine all day. Today I'm giving it a full wearing. It's described by some as winter in a bottle, and but I choose to reinterpret this as comfort in a bottle. This beauty starts off with a bright burst of Bergamot and Cardamon, but quickly sinks onto an enveloping contentment of amber and almond, bolstered a bit by just a hint of cinnamon, cloves, and cedar.
In my 20s and 30s I wore Avon and in my 40s someone gifted me "Lovely", which I wore for years. When it spoiled I searched for a new fragrance and ordered samples. When I tried Starlight I went into another world. I had never reacted to a perfume this way. I can't explain my utter delight. I had no idea a perfume could even do this. It even has a heavenly name. And it lasts a long time. This perfume opened a door to a whole new world of scent for me. Is there another perfume I could love? Yes! I found a couple more. I see Starlight did not get good reviews. I guess this perfume was made for me alone. I couldn't get a whole bottle of it fast enough, and I even love the bottle.
There’s spice but nothing about this is smooth or well composed. Really disappointed.
