Nose Pokes
Those who test fragrances from the house of Xerjoff often come across creations that literally bite into the skin and also know how to contaminate entire building complexes. However, this contamination takes place in a not so unpleasant way, which is due to the often airy sillage, which I could already detect with "Naxos" or also "Fars" from the Oud Stars collection. The fragrances are wahrnehmar, but hardly disturbing, as long as you do not completely overdo it when spraying in the morning.
With "Accento", the fruit fragrance in the more than probably eye-catching plush or velvet flacon, it's not much different - a sillage to the country of origin of the fruits used here, but incredibly transparent. The own nose, however, fades this actually very pleasant fruitling very quickly and that even with careful spraying. Normally, the adaptation process always starts when half the contents of the bottle lands on the skin or clothing. Here, three careful sprays from the mini atomizer, which, as we know, only delivers small amounts per spray unit, are enough to make the scent very quickly perceived only very faintly. This fragrance blindness is somewhat regrettable, it is "Accento" a really suitable for everyday use, for the spring and summer in itself predestined perfume.
The prelude is fruity-citrusy. A prominent pineapple note as in Creed's bestseller comes here, contrary to what the fragrance pyramid would suggest, less to the fore. However, its presence can be sensed, but not really smelled out due to the presence of other fruits. In general, I like that this fruit cocktail doesn't have that scratchiness often typical of fruit scents, which immediately makes me feel reminded of cheap shower gel. Here everything is relatively soft, for a few moments also very airy, almost aquatic.
With the insertion of a not at all lipstick-scented iris, it tingles pleasantly in the nose shortly thereafter and the composition gets a few rough edges to stand out from other 'ordinary' fruit scents. This would actually also describe the scent progression.

Conclusion:

"Accento" is for me, to sum it up, a pleasant fragrance, where I can understand that he finds his lovers. The fruit fragrance already in my collection, however, he could never replace. It lacks a bit of refinement, at least in my personal opinion. The fast-onset fragrance blindness I also already mentioned.

Very helpful Review 23  
Average excellent
Finally, here stands my first Xerjoff.
And, to be honest, the first impression was a little disappointing. Yes, he smelled pleasant, but somehow also only average or simply not "special".
But I quickly remembered what I really wanted: a fragrance suitable for everyday use, a fragrance that lasts and of course I expected Xerjoff to be of the same quality.
So once again the nose to the subject.
In the meantime the pineapple is coming through really well, all in all it is now really deliciously fruity and above all very very high quality. Yes, I like it!

Go to the checklist:
Suitable for everyday use? Absolutely! It always fits and nobody will not like it.
Quality? You can smell it! Oh yes, you can smell it!
Durability? More than surprised me!
Towards the end there is "only" a slightly fruity musk left, but that remains... and remains... and remains.

Conclusion: Xerjoff has created a super everyday scent here. Yes, you can find something similar at a much lower price, but only similar! What Xerjoff delivers here in quality is unparalleled (at least in the cheaper segment).
As always, of course, everyone has to decide for themselves the decisive question "is he worth the price to me". But after initial (and only brief) scepticism, here is a clear yes from me.

The fragrance smells like LUXURY PUR!
Accento by Xerjoff was then my first niche fragrance from the house of Xerjoff and to this day it is still one of my favorites!
If I had to describe this fragrance in one sentence, I would always say
The fragrance smells like LUXURY PUR!

I have previously only worn fragrances like Dior Sauvage & Versace Eros and then when I made the switch to the niche world...WOW!

Don't get me wrong it's super fragrances but when I smelled Accento for the first time I just had a real WOW effect because I just smelled the quality of the ingredients and didn't know anything like that before.

Now to the fragrance:

Accento starts with a fruity, slightly sour pineapple which reminds me personally something of Aventus. To the pineapple joins a slight citrus kick, which is but in the background and gives the whole something fresh.

In the further course of the fragrance I get an elegant powdery iris note which is paired with floral / floral notes. In addition, pink pepper should still be there, which I also smell out and the whole again gives a nice spicy note and gives the fragrance some pep.

Then the musk comes into play the gives the fragrance what cleanes/cleanes.
At the very end we have a patchouli / vetiver combo that provides the fragrance a woody / green base.

Durability: 8h+
Projection: room-filling, attention in the office! Since maybe 1-2 sprays less.

In summary, I find that the fragrance is a super, everyday fragrance for men and women who for me personally fits best in the spring and summer.
Very interesting is the fragrance I think for people who feel comfortable in the designer world, but slowly want to dive into the niche world.
Since he is easy to like and you can also do very well with other people :)

Luxury Everyday Fragrance
Performance:

The name Xerjoff says to the performance certainly already more than enough. For those who had nothing to do with the house of Xerjoff yet: The performance is just super! A great projection with long shelf life (min. 8Std.).

Who can wear the fragrance?

In itself, the fragrance is wearable as a unisex perfume for women and men. However, I tend more to say that it is a noble men's perfume. Definitely also wearable for any age group.

Where can you wear the fragrance?

Accento is well perceived everywhere. One would have to suggest to me places where this perfume is not wearable. From school to the retirement home, one is well served with this perfume.

Conclusion:
The smell on the skin is in my opinion worlds better than on the test strip. I can also only advise to test all fragrances on the skin and let it work on you.
Who is willing to spend a little more money for a high-quality perfume, I can blindly advise Accento.
Especially if you do not own many perfumes, as this is a top everyday fragrance.

Accento... the layering pro
A slightly different review. How this fragrance smells and performs has already been extensively and competently described here. But what makes this fragrance so special for me is "its" ability to combine positively with almost any other fragrance. Accento is inherently a great defensive fragrance that is easy to wear and makes everyone everywhere feel good. Not primarily a compliment monster and truly not a luxury product begging for attention. This is where "he" stands out from many X-Brand fragrances; a big and fat LIKE for that!!!
But Accento sets a special accent in/with its complexity. I no longer use it "solo", but as a great companion for other fragrances.
My layering experiences: The ratio of my mixes naturally depends on Accento's congenial partner in each case. Here are some prominent examples... whereby I always use 6 sprays.
With Erba Pura it is 3 sprays each, whereby I spray Accento on first. The fruity conciseness of an EP is definitely retained, but the room-filling dominance that is often perceived as negative is greatly reduced. There is also a slightly floral freshness to this blend.
Kirkè Extrait de Parfum gets on many people's nerves; the fragrance is often described as pungent and synthetic. Here, my/the ratio is K:2/A:4, whereby in this case I use Kirke as a base. The penetrance is completely negated by Accento and the result is a pleasant-smelling fruit cocktail.
Herod is my signature fragrance and should of course not be missing (H:3/A:3...Herod applied first). Often described as a heavy winter fragrance, even the PDM hit unfolds a fresh note that I didn't think possible. The plummy and deep tobacco note becomes a shisha experience. Compliments galore here.
It also works particularly well with Aventus! Here I apply the Creed bestseller with 4 sprays first. And now something happened to me that I didn't think was possible. Aventus 2023 became Aventus 2016! The mix is stronger and more room-filling and gives me back the old "Aventus vibes". Why? It's magic !
It also works wonderfully with Tony Iommi Monkey Special, Fan Your Flames, Oligarch Eau de Parfum and Ombre Nomade.

I can only advise everyone to gain their own experience here because the possibilities are almost unlimited. As I haven't come across a variant that didn't work at all, the risk of wasting fragrance is relatively low....
You are welcome to tell me about your layerings...I am always open to new experiences.

The most underwhelming fragrance amongst the Xerjoff line, Erba Pura a close second. I’ll stick to “Alexandria II” & Naxos

Soft, fluffy musk flavored with pineapple and a gentle assortment of flowers. Very well-balanced between sweet and sour, blended florals.
