Shooting Stars Nio by Xerjoff is a classy spring/summer smell.After application, we are presented with a sensational, vibrating, buoyant combination of bergamot and neroli. There is no shadow of synthetic elements used, here is quality, freshness and the impression that no one else smells better than you.Because of this vibrant, uplifting and stirring combination, It can be associated, in a good sense, with traditional colognes, but here this scent has been taken to a new, much higher level.
Gorgeous!<br /> I finally got a bottle after going thru two testers. I love this fragrance. So well blended. Starts off fruity and sweet and then dries down to this cozy slightly fruity vanilla musk. I get around 12 hours of wear time out of of 4 sprays. I recommend testing since a fragrance can perform quite differently on everyone. If it works for you, its a beauty!
I am going through my sample these days, while also trying some nasomatto and orto parisi stuff. this is very potent scent: men's sweat plus rotting herbs plus something which rounds it to be bearable.i need only half of one mini spritz to go full blast all day. i really wonder what is it in the middle notes? fruits, but which ones? even rotten fruits don't stink this way. but i like catching the whiffs of it as i wave my hand (to put it on the neck is out of the question).when i am done with this sample, i hope to get new one...edit: few days later, erba pura whiffs from my neck, and i like it, a lot...
On first spray, this is very light, and seems to be a weak scent. But after about 2 or 3 minutes, it really blossoms. It becomes very strong.I get the fruity vibe, along with light floral, blanched rather than heady.To my nose, im also getting a vanilla hint, oddly none is mentioned in the notes.Its a lovely scent, perhaps erring on the feminine side but i am wearing it, and enjoying it,
I did just sample it and I was like... wait a second... I smelled it before but I can't remember ordering a sample...Then it hit me. It's really close to Erba Pura. More feminine, slightly less fruity and more floral. Also less clogging. pull this off. Last long time with a good projection.<br />
The blend of oud and rose smells very good and the addition of the fruits spins it to another level. But it's not just that, as there are resins, spices and a slight incense note burning under the fruits. A couple of hours in and the oud is amplifying, it smell bitter which is contrasting well with the fruits. It's a bold perfume and the smell is addictive
