Niche brand Xerjoff has launched two new fragrances in their XJ 17/17 range, Richwood and Damarose, and has introduced the entire XJ 17/17 line in 100 ml Eau de Parfum spray bottles (see above).
Richwood ~ "Richwood centers on sandalwood from Mysore, one of the most beautiful--and rare--materials in perfumery. Crowning the sandalwood's mellow warmth is a halo of crisp citrus. Patchouli and dark rose tinged with cassis lend the fragrance the elegant earthiness of a premier cru Bourgogne. Just as vintage wine opens in the glass over time, revealing a tale of complex character, Richwood continues to unfold on skin, enticing the nose to return again and again to experience its splendor."
Damarose ~ "Damarose is a classic rose chypre, a type of fragrance known for its balance of seduction and poise. The finest quality ingredients, including Turkish rose absolute and Sambac jasmine absolute are crafted into the composition with a twist with freesia and red fruit. As a result, its heart radiates a spicy lusciousness, cradled in velvety patchouli and precious woods, and deepened with sensual amber and musk, mimicking skin."
Xerjoff Richwood and Damarose are available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum. (via press release)
