Mefisto Fragrance Reviews

[email protected]
adhiraj_chaki@yahoo.co.in

You are on a holiday in Southern Italy in this summer. It’s Early in the Morning. There was a little rain at Night. But, now it’s all clear. The sky is Bright Blue. You are sitting in an Iris Garden, with a Cup of English Tea and a Good Book of Romantic Poetries. The Southern Breeze is blowing over the Iris Flowers, touching your hair, whispering their own Poetries.

Mefisto is the Poetry of the Citruses and Iris. A Romantic One.

Mefisto starts like a whisper of a mild tea note, along with Grapefruit. Soon joined by a more tangy and slight bitter Bergamot. There is a wet, juicy, well rounded Iris giving sweetness to the structure. At dry down, a beautiful earthy sandalwood joins in, with a slight salty musk. The whole composition is very airy and I call it a “thirst quencher” for hot summer days.

The name justification: It’s Mischievous like a Devil and speaks it’s stakes with whisper, which you cant ignore, because of it’s strong personality. It’s Narcissist, but never over exaggerates. But still I will say this “Mefisto” has a Sweet Heart. Handsome, Romantic and Sweet.

Another “Bergamot” Masterpiece by Xerjoff. This House can create an Encyclopedia of Perfumes by using this single component itself. “Bergamot” is Xerjoff’s trump card and they never fail to use it the Best of way.

Sillage: Moderate
Longevity on My Skin: Approx 12 Hours
Longevity on Fabric: Almost 1 Day
Occasion: A very Romantic Perfume for hot humid summer days.

Rating: 9.5/10

P.S: The presentation is Beautiful with Renaissance style Paintings on the Box.

با سلام و احترام
اول از همه شما را به یاد ادکلن سیلور مانتن کرید خواهد انداخت
تمام آن تعریفی که در حق آن ادکلن نوشته ام در مورد اینکار هم صدق دارد
البته بعضی نت ها در این کار به نظرم با قدرت بیشتری استفاده گردید هاست
در کل عطر بسیار خوبی از لحاظ رایحه بوده و کسانی که از استشمام کرید سیلور لذت برده اند این کار را هم خیلی دوست خواهند داشت
با این تفاوت دیگر که از لحاظ آمبولانژ نیز این کار به نظر می رسد متفاوت تر باشد
هم کرید و هم ایکسژورف از برندهای لاکچری و نیش دنیا محسوب می شوند البته کرید با سابقه ای بسیار بزرگ و دیرینه و این برند هم مارکی جدید در دنیای عطر و ادکلن در ایران محسوب می شود
شیک و کلاسیک
مناسب جهت مهمانی ها و مراسم ها
جهت فصول گرم سال بیشتر مورد استفاده قرار می گیرد
از لحاظ دوام و پخش به بسیار کار ارزنده ای می باشد
چنانچه بخواهم امتیاز بدهم به این کار
از لحاظ رایحه 10
از جنبه دوام و پخش بو 10
از لحاظ قیمت شاید بتوان با نصف این قیمت ادکلن یکی از کارهای برند مونتال را تهیه کرد اما هر چه باشد این برندها از لحاظ کیفیت و نت های استفاده شده در آن و همچنین کیفیت بسته بندی و آمبولانژ یک سر و گردن از آن برندهای دیگر بلندتر هستند و جزو برندهای فاخر و لوکس محسوب می گردند
فلذا ارزش خود را برای کسانی که به کیفیت هم اهمیت می دهند دارد
با تقدیم احترام

I bought The showergel of this perfume And IT Smells amazing because for me this type of scents would be perfect as shower gel even more to be weared as a Perfume Also i bought a Sample to compare IT with silver mountain Water . And Will review IT later by god's Will

Edit : after full day wearing If sergio momo Will permit me to rename it , i would Call it mountain water , yes i Will just erase The silver word from creed SMW , because there is no silver harsh note In mefisto , Also The rose In dry down here is more natural , the opening is clean and refreshing also the longevity is very good 2 spritz at 2:00 pm now its 24:00 am And i can still smell IT easily , projection 4 hours hesvy
4-6 moderate
6-10 hours weak
Maybe its not true but i found The dry down very similar to wisal from ajmal IT's available here on fragrantica database but no one notice The similarties .
Anyways
I Will buy 30 ml Bottle of mefisto as i heard its In The market soon by god's Will

Tried this over several days last week before Snowzilla hit. When ever I test, I spray first on the back of my hand and tilt it in the light to see if I can see the sheen that would tell me of the fragrance's oil content. From first spray, this one not only left an oily patch, but also opened with the most fabulous citrusy lavender combination I have encountered yet. The lavender wasn't the playdoh type I encounter so often (Caron Pour Homme, I'm looking at you) nor it is the twiggy woodiness that I find in By Kilian.

Instead the lavender and citrus intertwine and shortly give way to the iris. Shortly, musk makes its entrance and says this way, a musky iris, for the duration of time on my skin. Speaking of duration, I sprayed this on my arm on the way home from work and changed clothes when I got home. Odd thing is that I can still smell it on the shirt I changed into, going on four days now. The only other fragrance with this sort of longevity that I have encountered is Dior's Eau Savuage.

In reading the reviews, I can certainly see where folks get the similarity to SMW, however, to me, SMW has a metallic edge to it (maybe its psychosomatic based on the "silver" in the name)that, despite repeated attempts, just does not work with my skin chemistry.

Mephisto, IMO, out does Creed it both the quality of the composition and longevity and, in doing so, has made it on to my "wish list".

P.S. I don't detect the rose, cedar or amber notes listed in the Fragrantica note pyramid

Creed's Silver Mountain Water had a lovechild with Bond no 9's Hampton and they sent him to Harvard and he now lives in a mansion or a castle. Imagine that!

Dude, unless you've got money to burn, you really need to take the time to price your frags out properly. A 250ml glass flacon of Silver Mountain Water should set you back around $233 whereas a 100ml bottle of Mefisto should run around $229. I don't know where you shop, but clearly someone is ripping you off.

Much has been said about the similarities between this and Creed's Silver Mountain water, but I think they are only ostensibly similar. Mefisto is smoother, longer lasting, more masculine and has much better sillage; two sprays and I'm set for the day. Thankfully, it also lacks the Creed's harsh metallic note that many, including me, find off-putting. The superior citrus notes - a Xerjoff speciality - of bergamot and grapefruit, along with the addition of lavender, put this a class apart from the Creed. Pricing wise, Mefisto sells for $345, compared to Creed's $370, so they are more or less the same price, and Considering you'll be using much less per wearing, this is also better value. Also, I know many people care about this, so I'd like to add that Mefisto receives a fair few compliments too.

P.S. Millesime Imperial is my signature fragrance (I don't hate Creed :D)

Another normal fragrance from this line! citrus, lavender, a bit of cedar and sandalwood. Quite sophisticated but repetitive somehow & kind of like a masculine deodorant essence, the calmer it goes the aquatic it turns (the note i don't like) and then the amber shows mixed with the aquatic note.

Hate to beat a dead horse but man this really smells like SMW. Ive never worn both side by side, but if I just smelled this on someone walking by I dont think I could tell the difference. They are very similar to me, of course creed has these horrible batch varations, but whatever versions of SMW that ive smelled this is very similar.

I dont mean that in a totally bad way though, SMW is one of my favorite summer sorta scents ever I think it smells great. And I think this smells great to...

Off hand wearing this again today, man hard to say, I guess main differences I notice is the lemon in this is pretty apparent at the beginning, this has some sour grapefruit citrus note to it, and maybe this can be a little windex/or cleaning detergent smelling if im really LOOKING for difference. But I mean just smelling this off hand, its SMW to me.

For what its worth I havnt smelled the hamptons in awhile but I dont recall that smelling very similar to SMW to me, but this one definitely does. Again not a bad thing though per say because I enjoy the smell a lot myself. Just potentially redundant if you own both obviously and of course well its probably to expensive for what it is.

I smelled this for this for the first time at fortnum and mason department store in London before reading any reviews and I instantly thought about its resemblance to creed's SMW.

for me, the difference that i detect is that SMW is a lot more of a unisex fragrance whereas Mefisto is a lot less so and more distinguished.

A cleaner, more refined version of Creed Silver Mountain Water. Whether or not it is listed, the tea note in this one is excellent. Love the citrus top note but the soft woods at the base. A classic fragrance that is easily wearable in any occasion. Longevity is 8-10 hours, projection 4-6 hours. If price isn't a deterrent, get ahold of this beauty.

The perfume pundits are correct. This is no doubt a hybrid of Silver Mountain Water and The Hamptons. If I wanted to create a clichéd summer fragrance, what would be the notes? Lemon, Lavender, Grapefruit, Musk etc? All the components that qualifies Mefisto as same ole run of the mill summer stuff. I require mystery in all of my fragrances regardless of the season in order for me to deem it purchase worthy. There's no way around it, Xerjoff can be hit or miss. Not bad for redundancy but you know how the story goes: This is about as useful as an ashtray on a motorcycle.

Why do people mindlessly repeat this smells like silver mountain water? This behavior follows a similar pattern, some less expensive scent x vaguly resembles a well known expensive fragrance y. Someone claims x smells like y and everyone else hops on the bandwagon without even testing fragrance x and y side by side to make their own decision. And if this was a cheaper fragrance, it would automaticaly be labeled a knock-off, copy, or rip-off of the more expensive one. Because everyone knows the more expensive fragrance is the trailblazer that came first and everything else that smells like it, regardless of whether it was made before or after.

Diatribes aside. This does not smell like silver mountain water. I have both side by side on my arm and mefisto is a classic citrus italian cologne with some florals (iris, lavendar and rose) and woody notes in the base. While SMW is green (tea) and fruity, I get semi sweet dark berries like blackberry because it smells less acid and sharp than true currant. Mefisto has more citrus fruit, a waxy vibe from the iris and clear cedar and sandalwood in the base. SMW is much greener, fruitier and musky. The biggest difference is the woods and florals in Mefisto.

Mefisto is a wonderful, smooth and refreshing italian cologne that thankfully skips the harsh, bitter citrus pith and peel scent often found in other classic colognes. Citrus is juicy, ripe and well done while florals ands woods provide complexity and depth. Overall, I very much like Mefisto which stops just short of a love, only because of the price tag. If price is no object and you want the best classic italian cologne, then you can't go wrong with mefisto.

Creed Silver Mountain Water is more elegant and sophisticated, Mefisto is rude and, it seems to me, ladies would say - it's more sexy. longevity is moderate on my skin, longer than SMW, but this comparision is not correct, because Mefisto is eau de Perfume, SMW is eau de Toilette, that's the difference.
As regard to smell - it's already said a lot about similarity here. I have a feeling that I catched the main differnce between them and already described above.


three days later - I have been wearing Mefisto for 3 days and disappointed with longevity. It's quite moderate, after 3 hours it's sitting very close to the skin, no projection at all. It's completely not the same what I expected reading here about this EDP. Probably, buying Mefisto we invest more in a box and a bottle instead of in a perfume itself. Sad!
Creed Silver Mountain Water - forgive me, I love you )))

Mefisto is a great representation of a true Italian cologne. There are definitely similarities between this scent and several others in the market (mainly Creed's Silver Mountain Water) but this composition reigns supreme simply because of the great longevity and amazing sillage. The scent trail on this juice is amazing (seriously demands attention). However, dont be fooled by all the marketing about Xerjoff's natural ingredients and all; this scent is synthetic, nevertheless a great summer fragrance.

___________________________________________________________

It has been nearly a year since I bought this fragrance and now I finally understand where it shines and where the fragrance has its downfalls. Yes, it is a Silver Mountain Water clone (I own both and love them equally). However, where SMW has this sharp metallic vibe, the lavander note in Mefisto makes it a smoother and more aromatic composition. Also, Mefisto to me seems to contain a lot more musk than SMW. Yet, I find that SMW is a more versatile scent as its heavier sandalwood base can cut through the cold weather. Final thoughts: Both are great frags but Mefisto seems to be a fun, more energetic, summery take on the more classy SMW.

This shit is slamming! As a true Creed stan I can say that I prefer Mefisto to Silver Mountain Water only because it is longer lasting. Bought it yesterday and can't wait till it warms up to crank it. Maybe I'll alternate between this and Silver to keep things exciting, but this year it's all about Mefisto!

I got a sample of this from MiN and it is a great smelling perfume that reminds me of GFT by Geo F Trumper with that great citrus opening and then turns into Silver Mountain Water by Creed. I already own both of the other fragrances so I have no need of this. Not original at all but does smell nice. I could see myself wearing this in the spring and will break the sample back out then but again I do not see myself dropping the coin for this.

An overpriced and more overtly synthetic take on Creed's SMW. Both SMW and Hamptons smell better than this and are considerably cheaper.

(This has a thin/sweet/cheap aromachemical that is overpowering in it. Uden also suffers from a synthetic and sweet aromachemical cheapening the overall fragrance, but it is far worse in Mefisto.)

Another fantastic fragrance from Xerjoff. Mefisto Xerjoff is perfect, longevity is excellent, and the scent itself is outstanding. I think it can be wore by men and woman because the notes are perfectly balanced and it is in the middle of masculine and feminie.
It's unique and in a very good wayand in my opinion its a great fragrance to wear during the spring or summer, but I see nothing wrong with wearing it year round. Very clean, fresh (thanks bergamot, grapefruit and amalfi lemon accords)- you can feel freshness, cold water, grass and all the unspoilt nature around.
This scent has class, from beginning to end and please, do not compared to the others available, you will not be buying a another citrus perfume, you will be buying a Xerjoff.

Immaculate!

Mefisto has a very similar opening to Creed Silver Mountain Water. The violet-leaf and tea like notes in the heart makes this a superior offering imho. Just gorgeous.

I couldn't resist and laid down the money for a full bottle after my 2nd wearing. :)
