Alexandria II Fragrance Reviews


I'm so glad I decided to test this. I was put off by someone on here saying it was like Escada Magnetism which is most puzzling. I have EM and I can't see it. My first thoughts were a big hit of oud, rose and sandalwood. One spray will easily last all day. Its a big hitter! There is an underlying sweetness from the fruit and amber notes. The lavender gives a bit of edge and keeps it unisex.
I've got to admit I was hoping Richwood would be like this. The perfect oud/rose/wood fragrance. If you are not one for oud normally still give this a go. You might be pleasantly surprised.


In my opinion this is the clear cut winner of all the Oud Stars line. Most are in your face Oud, dry, and somewhat dirty. This is nothing of the kind. Soft Oud, sweet and spicy with a glorious drydown. Not too far off from escada magnetism as mentioned by a previous reviewer. Fantastic stuff!


This is a niche version of Escada Magnetism, they smell very similar


This Fragrance Is Amazing.
Smooth - Sweet - Woody And Spicey But Not Offensive Spice Just A Background Kick Of It!

This Fragrance Isnt Really About Oud To Me, More Sandalwood, Cinnamon With Wood And A Touch Sweetness.

Quality Juice, Very long Lasting, Unique And Great Sillage - Perfect

Only Made More Special By The Fact It Is Hard To Get And The Presentation.

5/5 Easily For Me

*The Price Is A Killer Though Not Gonna Lie


Alexandria is exclusive to Fortnum & Mason in London. I'm so happy that one of the perfumista's on here introduced me to the lovely second floor in F&M. Anyway, back to Alexandria. It's a part of Oud Stars collection. For starters it's very, very long lasting. I had a paper strip sprayed on Saturday and I can still smell it on Wednesday. Smell it not only when I bring the strip straight under my nose but also from about a meter distance. I would describe Alexandria as woody floriental. The notes I can definitely smell through different stages of development are: rose in the opening and middle, lavender - I think the slight whiff of freshness comes from it, very subtle oud throughout the whole life of Alexandria, and finally sandalwood, vanilla and cinnamon in the drydown. There is also something that smells like bitter almonds - not sure what that could be? Maybe just my sense of smell?
I enjoyed this fragrance a lot and it's now on the top of my 'to buy list'.
Now, on a side note, I didn't really think much of Xerjoff after my big disappointment with Iriss. And I only smelled few Xerjoffs from the Shooting Stars collection but they didn't make my heart beat faster. But Alexandria proved that Xerjoff has beautiful things to offer.
Also, another exclusive to F&M is Emery from the Shooting Stars (it's not listed on Fragrantica yet and there aren't any information on the net yet). Emery is a stunningly wonderful oriental rose. I fell in love with it instantly. When it appears on here I will follow with a description of my beautiful experience with it. :-)

Update1: I just found Serguey review of Alexandria on here and it says there were only 120 bottles which sold out immediately and that Xerjoff wasn't going to make more. Somebody also mentioned that they did release Alexandria 2 - so maybe that's what I sampled? Need to go to F&M again.

Update 2 (26/11/2013): Yes the current version in F&M is Alexandria II. I actually met Sergio Momo in F&M yesterday and had a really nice chat with him. He explained that the only difference between Alexandria I and Alexandria II is the oud. The one used in A I was 25 years old. The one used in A II is 5-6 years old but it comes from the same plantation. The rest of the notes is the same. Sergio also explained why they needed to name it Alexandria II saying that even though it's almost identical fragrance yet still the main ingredient is different. That little chat really made my day! Yay :-)
