Welcome to the club of 10!
Recently I decided to pay a little more attention to Xerjoff and Casamorati in particular and set out to test some fragrances from this house. "Naxos" and "Alexandria II" I already knew and so I tested some scents on the "V Collection" and especially Casamorati. Here I already knew "Mefisto" about which I then also came to "Silver Mountain Water" or then ultimately to "Club de Nuit Sillage".

So I went to the perfumery, after this had finally reopened after a long lockdown time, and just took me this brown bottle, which was relatively well rated here on Parfumo, even if he was not at the top of the top list. And what can I say...It has made Zoom!

I was instantly smitten and could hardly believe my luck. The scent was strong, had a great tangy note and really appealed to me. Initially, I gave the fragrance a 9 and also wrote a statement about this great fragrance; I'll come back to this later. After some time, especially after I still smelled the fragrance on my sleeve, I had to correct my rating then but again, and upwards - to a 10!

Now it is so that I give a 10er rating really relatively rare. In 136 tested fragrances I have a total of only five times awarded a 10, so on average only 3.67% of all tested fragrances. In my personal 10 club are industry greats such as "Oud Wood", "Layton", "Reflection Man" and "Epic Woman", the latter intended as a fragrance on women, less so on me, although I could imagine that happening. And now so "1888" by Casamorati / Xerjoff as the fifth in this exquisite round!

And so I now could not help but to get me a bottle, even if this is really not exactly cheap and Xerjoff basically also offers no discounts. Now he stands but in all its glory in front of me (in the 30ml version) and I can not feast enough on it. But now a few words about the fragrance, where I would like to go back to my statement mentioned at the beginning.

Fragrance

The statement read:

"A really great fragrance. Masculine, spicy and elegant. But am I the only one who smells out a clear cola note here?"

And I still stand by this statement, even if the comments on this were that neither Cola would smell out, nor the fragrance is particularly masculine. That did not want to let my olfactory ego sit on itself and so I researched a little on the Internet. First of all, Xerjoff itself classifies the fragrance as rather masculine on their website. There, for each fragrance, there is a 3-point scale with more masculine, unisex or more feminine; "1888" has its point on the far left, so on the masculine side. Also here on Parfumo, 73.6% men own the fragrance. But I will absolutely not deny that the fragrance can be worn just as well by women!

Now then to the cola note. For this I was on relevant English-language pages fündig. Here it was not said that "1888" remind of cola, but very well to "Root Beer", this non-alcoholic American drink that in German probably corresponds most closely to our malt beer. There was talk of a "fizzy" and "sparkling" note, which I then probably perceived as a cola note. In this respect, I can be corrected here gladly and correct me insofar as I now replace cola by malt beer.

This note then also remains in the entire course of the fragrance, but later then keeps a little more in the background. For this, the floral notes come through in the following, which makes the fragrance so special and noble for me. A little reminds me the fragrance here of "Mefisto" or "Silver Mountain Water", at least you can recognize a distant relationship. In the drydown, the fragrance then becomes a little creamier, due to the woods and especially the amber. By the latter "1888" then even reminds something of "Grand Soir", of course still supplemented by this cola vibe, whereby also something "Enigma" of Roja resonates.

So the fragrance remains then 8-9 hours on the skin and pleases just initially not only one, but also his fellow men in the immediate vicinity. "1888" is not a "sillage monster", but the fragrance is nice and strong and gives the wearer a great aura.

The fragrance is also basically always wearable, no matter what the occasion, no matter what the season and thus becomes a real all-rounder or "ever walker".

The bottle and the overall presentation is Xerjoff according to outstanding. I find the Casamorati flacons less kitschy than, for example, the "V-Collection". The bottle, even the small one, has a decent weight and seems very high quality workmanship. Incidentally, the brown color of the bottle is quite reminiscent of a cola or even malt beer bottle. Coincidence?

Conclusion

I probably do not have to write much here. The "10" actually says everything. For me, the fragrance is something very special and he may even become my signature fragrance. Only the price is a small Wehrmutstropfen, but for a "10" you can indulge yourself so something already times.

So who is looking for a "tangy", spicy, but at the same time floral and elegant fragrance, "1888" should at least have tried. Cheers!

VARIETY. - very underestimated fragrance
I have already heard about many Xerjoff fragrances something and also already tested some, this however was rather unknown to me so far and I have heard little of him. Too bad, because I can now say that he belongs to my greatest favorites & not only from the Xerjoff collection.... No! From my complete collection. He is something very special & that's what makes him so beautiful. It's very diverse, has many great scent components & it's hard for me to smell them out exactly. It is aromatic & I always discover new scents. The more I smell it, the more I fall in love with it. Like more? Yes! It has something green, something spicy, something floral, something warm & soft... that's exactly what I mean by variety. It all harmonizes beautifully together. I can't categorize it to any season either, it goes with each in my eyes. Just wow, nothing more to add to this. Take a chance & give it a try. :)

'Once we kissed under liquid skies' - A fragrant feeling of wanderlust
Intro:
Xerjoff. One of the few brands that somehow never really caught my interest before. But probably also because I never really had the opportunity to test the Xerjoff fragrances. They are simply sparsely represented in the perfumeries I know in HH. But I'll start by asking myself (now more than ever) why that is so
The smell:
warm herbaceous vs. peppery hot
flowery vs. woody
creamy vs. rough
Amber and sandalwood vs. patchouli
masculine vs. absolute unisex
italian vs. oriental
Sunset at the sea vs. dry desert sand

The fragrance abstract:
'once we kissed under liquid skies, capering in thunderous squalls
we slept naked by the pines at night
loveblind, lovedrunk
one summer long'
(kasper hate)

Outro:
Despite the impression that I have never seen so many contrasts at once, 1888 seems to me to be all of a piece. The facets fit together like the finest pieces of a puzzle. A noble "feel-good maker" that is nevertheless suitable for everyday use. 1888, where have you been so long?

Heavy fare...
The fragrance is sold as unisex but for me is the more masculine.... The scent is extremely heavy and goes in the dark direction...When spraying I immediately thought of Nejma Seven. Mega heavy, a bit booze and patchouli to the sky... A Beast Mode what everything is about, whether durability or sillage ...

The patchouli and clove play a very big role here. So far the only fragrance from the Casamorati collection I can not stand...

Beautiful mix of flowers with a noble spice
The Casamorati range from Xerjoff is simply great. Different tastes are well catered for and there is something for everyone. You can also get these fragrances at relatively fair prices. I also got hold of this 1888 at a good price. After Dolce Amalfi, Lira and Bouquet Ideale, this is already my 4th in this series. These great big boxes with this artistic picture are also really worth the money. The bottles also have a great look with this typical Xerjoff lid. You should check them out, especially when the fragrances appear in the tempting range.

With 1888, you shouldn't look too closely at the pyramid, and the declaration as a men's fragrance shouldn't be rated too highly either. Here you get a very beautiful, elegant floral-spicy-soft fragrance that has real power and staying power. It simply looks very classy and serious and has a cuddly, sensual vibe that most people will simply love.
As I said, you don't need to look too closely at the pyramid. This fragrance would not have been my cup of tea, partly because of the clove. This note usually divides opinion and not everyone likes it. In my opinion, however, this 1888 is perfectly balanced to create a harmonious and elegant fragrance. The clove is already very present at the start, but is accompanied by a really pleasant spiciness. Saffron (not like in BR420/OfG), coriander and a subtle peppery note accompany this clove and are convincing. After a few minutes, ylang-ylang creams it in beautifully and combines this into a sensual, elegant composition. Oriental amber sets in early and is particularly prominent in the base. It is accompanied by sweetness, dark spicy patchouli and light wood. The base is really beautiful and can still be perceived after many hours. With 1888 you get a great balance of flowers, spice, oriental and a really great amber sweetness. Beautifully soft. On the whole, a fragrance that does not change extremely but remains similar from top to base.
Performance is really good. Even after 10+ hours, the fragrance notes still linger in your nose. This makes it perfect for everyday wear, even if it is also suitable for more sophisticated occasions.

You should try it if you are looking for a stylish floral-spicy fragrance with a pleasant sweetness. Ladies can also try it, as it is not necessarily masculine.

Spicy, cozy. I love the note of carnation with the sweet amber, which creates an addictive sillage. In the drydown, floral, smoky, creamy.
