The most passionate and sensual area of a country that has never lacked for either, Sicily is a land of tradition and emotion, a rich Mediterranean island where nature and ancient history flow through every village and hillside. Naxos celebrates Sicily's deep and sensual heart with a rich, spicy, vital perfume, imbued with tradition but striving towards the contemporary.
Naxos opens with a joyous vitality, juicy citrus notes of bergamot and lemon blending smoothly with mellow lavender and jasmine, enhanced by a sharp and audacious contrast of precious spices. As a rich drydown of tobacco leaf, tonka and vanilla berries emerges, the classical, light and fruity top notes flow into something more passionate and exotic, evoking the fierce spirit of Sicilians past and present. Beautiful and wild, both ferocious and gentle, Naxos is the essence of a a place that has always been and will always be.

This impression of XJ 1861 Naxos by Xerjoff is incredible! I have the 1 oz concentrated cologne & it's beastly on me! When I first sprayed it, I wasn't totally in love... just like... BUT, 15 mins later, oh my starz, it blew me away. This is the best tobacco, honey, vanilla fragrance... period! It's a hot July here in NC, and let me tell you, this thing radiates off my skin fiercely & everyone at work, my wife, friends, they all noticed & compliment me. It's unisex but leans more masculine for me.
This is definitely a scent for low humidity. Has strong musk tone, but decrease to woody and foral scent that last all day. Multiple compliments.
XJ 1861 was a winner. I bought some for my son as well. If you're into niche fragrances..FBO is really the place to try first!
