Outstanding!
I'm going to be controversial and say this is Xerjoff Naxos on steroids!

When you let this baby macerate for a few months, I kid you not, it gets even better than Naxos. The maker claims this is an extrait and I wouldn't be surprised if it really was.

1981X gives us a great honey note that can strongly be felt even during the drydown and this is what makes it a smooth and sexy perfume. Not everyone can pull this off and you shouldn't blind buy it but for God's sake - at least give it a try! :-)

Naxos VS 1981X
I didn't find Naxos to smell like Pure Havane, but I understood the many comparisons. There are definitely familiar hints of the Mugler DNA, but 1981X leans more towards Pure Havane to my nose. Naxos opens much brighter and becomes its own entity after application; while 1981X almost immediately focuses on the heart and base notes. I initially loved Naxos, but found that it was reduced to a skin scent within an hour. A curious itch led me to Alexandria's 1981X. I took a chance and ordered a 30ml spray and my only regret was not getting a bigger bottle. Is it wrong that I prefer 1981X to Naxos?? It's everything that I want Naxos to be and offers the lacking projection. Naxos is wonderful and it does in fact last, but intimately close to the skin. Layered, they are the perfect duo but for now I will live with Alexandria's rendition.

Delicious, opulent, charming
Delicious, opulent, elegant, in Alexandria they achieve what very few in inspirations, fragrances of very good quality at an affordable price; the truth is I do not know how they do but well give us quite the approximations of the top niche, I had the opportunity to have decants of both Xerjoff XJ 1861 Naxos and this, surprisingly their resemblance in the drying is beastly, so for price I go for this and without fear of spending a fortune. During the life of the fragrance is always present tobacco, jasmine and lavender are notorious and remain there for a long time accentuated along with cinnamon (not so prominent) giving way to vanilla and Tonka bean to round out the composition, honestly the honey I do not feel it so much; the citrus output disappears soon as 5 minutes.
The duration is average 6 to 7 hours on the skin; 1861 Naxos doesn't give more than that on my skin either.
I think it goes for a nighttime environment; that's why it doesn't give much beyond performance.
So.
Aroma : 8 (Similar to other designer and niche ones).
Longevity: 8 - Alexandria's stand out a lot in this section.
Projection: 7
Versatility: 7
Feminine Olfactory Perception : 9
Overall : 7,8 / 10

Very Sensual & Enchanting
Now this scent is very nice indeed and I now know why it's so popular. It smells very sensual and enchanting!

It opens up with citrus notes which is quickly followed by a aromatic tobacco that has been slightly honeyed.

Soon after a beautiful jasmine and lavender joins the party and this is where the magic happens. The smell is enticing and inviting with everything been light and not too sweet or overwhelming.

As time passes vanilla adds some extra sweetness with tonka and cinnamon adding depth to the tobacco.

All in all it is very easy to wear and nicely balanced. It does have a Burberry London vibe which is probably down to the tobacco. But this goes in a different direction and is more nuanced than that one which gets boozy with it's port wine smell.

Love it!
