XXY Fragrance Reviews

I'm biggest fan of Xerjoff and this is the only perfume house I truly love (together with Sospiro of course), but when Chris/Sergio were creating this perfume something tells me that they were not skilled enough at that time and didn't create real masterpiece. I just can't explain what is wrong with this perfume, it tries to smell good but I feel that I'm suffocating when I smell it and overall it doesn't feel high quality like other scents.

Sorry Xerjoff for bad review, but all is ok, all your current line is at highest 10/10 rating :)

XXY is a bizarre name for a fragrance, given that it's also the name of a syndrome in which men have an extra X chromosome (XXY syndrome, aka Klinefelter syndrome), and consequently are sterile, have small sex organs below the belt and develop small breasts up top, and frequently suffer from other minor dysfunctions. I wouldn't be able to look at a bottle of this without picturing it, but that's what I get for taking biology in college... I guess.

Really weird name for a perfume.

too sweetish cloying to my taste! peachy vanilla with irisial Ylang Ylang blends! bursting out the cloyingness using the freshness that you can get from citrus notes. no sandalwood, no jasmine, no patchouli, no vetiver, and definitely no musk. the bottle is just amazing but the fragrance is not.

Description and notes-wise this reads and smells (thought I have not tested it) like GUERLAIN's "Royal Extrait" that Harrods sells currently as a store exclusive.

Note: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Peach, Ylang-ylang, Jasmine de Grasse, Orris, Black pepper, Patchouli, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Labdanum, Vanilla beans, Musk.

XXY smells good, sometimes that is enough, sometimes it is not. At these prices, I honestly demand for more than simply a good smelling fragrance. Creativity (not there), uniqueness (not there), amazing drydown (not there. Woody amber anyone?).

The fragrance opens with a nice fruity/citrus combo immediately joined by a consistent dose of iris while jasmine remarks its presence firmly yet gently. So far, so good...Pepper breaks in and together with vetiver and patchouli provides a masculine twist that turns the initial feminine accord into something pleasantly androgynous. A strong deja-vu feeeling starts to materialize in my mind...Don't ask me why but I start to think about Coromandel, about L'Instand De Guerlain Pour Homme and, more in general, I think about Guerlain, Chanel...wait, a chypre without oakmoss, 31 Rue Cambon...Ok, just kidding, XXY shares (almost) nothing with the aforementioned fragrances but, at the same time, it's the classic type of composition that makes you think about something else...it's familiar (as opposed to unique).

After a couple of hours, the party get spoiled by the usual woody amber drydown. Now, my point is this: why we should splurge our money for an (overall) average quality fragrance? In an hypothetical world where fragrances could be compared to music, XXY would be just like an extremely talented musician releasing a new record made only of cover versions of trite songs and charging you for the full retail price.

I came to the conclusion that every country has its own "Creed". In italy we have Xerjoff.

Do yourself a favour, get a vintage Guerlain.
