What Does 17/17 - Damarose Smell Like

Damarose by XerJoff opens with a lively blend of red fruits, which lend a subtly sweet aroma. The brightness of bergamot and tartness of lemon come through, adding a citrusy twist, while the delicate scent of freesia softens the fruitiness. As the initial notes dissipate, a heart of Bulgarian and Damask roses comes to the fore. Their traditional floral scent is rich and full, complemented by the serene and refreshing aroma of lily of the valley. The faint, powdery scent of Florentine iris subtly underscores the blooming bouquet.

As the scent matures, the base notes emerge strongly. A dominant presence of musk provides an animalistic hint, underscored by the exotic, slightly sweet scent of rosewood. The subtle warmth of amber is evident, melting into the earthy aroma of patchouli. Then there is the creamy, woody scent of sandalwood, which rounds out the bouquet, alongside the subtly sweet, comforting aroma of vanilla. Lastly, the green, earthy hint of vetiver grounds the scent. Collectively, these notes create a fragrance that is powdery and floral, yet fresh, woody, and slightly sweet, reflecting a well-constructed unisex perfume.

Review of 17/17 - Damarose

Damarose by XerJoff is a perfume that leans towards the feminine audience, yet it maintains a certain universal appeal. The perfume's character is prominently floral, with a generous dose of powdery undertones that add softness and elegance, making it ideal for those seeking a perfume that is subtle but leaves a lasting impression.

The perfume opens up with a fresh burst of red fruits and bergamot, creating an invigorating first impression. However, its heart is where it truly shines, with an enchanting blend of Bulgarian rose and Damask rose absolute, creating a scent that is timeless and romantic. It's the kind of perfume you'd choose for an evening out or a special date night.

In terms of longevity, Damarose does a respectable job. You won't find the scent disappearing halfway through your day, but don't expect it to last till the late hours of the evening. The perfume’s sillage is moderate, so it won’t overpower those around you, making it a good choice for both leisure and business occasions.

A noticeable shortcoming of Damarose is its value proposition. For a perfume of its genre, it falls short on providing an exceptional value for money. Yet for those who value the artistry in perfume making, and are willing to splurge for it, Damarose offers an experience that's worth considering.

Overall, Damarose by XerJoff is a tastefully done floral perfume that offers a blend of freshness, elegance, and sophistication, albeit at a premium price. It suits those who prefer their fragrances to have a classic touch while maintaining a modern appeal.
