Part of the Oud Stars collection
ENTIRELY DEDICATED TO THE TRADITIONS OF ARAB PERFUME MAKING, THE OUD STARS COLLECTION IS CREATED WITH PRESTIGIOUS DISTILLATIONS OF PURE OUD FROM THE PLANTATIONS OF LAOS, CAMBODIA AND BORNEO.
Opening with sublime lavender, rosewoood, cinnamon and rare fruity accords. A touch of rose in the backbone of Alexandra ll enriches the lavender and deepens the rosewood. The Laotian oud brings a celestial meaning to this aromatic woody aura and echoes the excellent vanilla amber base.

I was looking for a vanilla that was sweet yet not cloyingly so, but also one with depth. Alas Alexandria ll fulfills my search with elegance and sophistication. I would characterize this as an evening scent and at different stages in its dry down presents notes that are sublimely blended. The perfume doesn’t scream, but it doesn’t have to as it does it’s job with eclat. I look forward to trying other Xerjoff fragrances and thank Twisted Lily for dispatching the order quickly.
