Nio by Xerjoff is a portrait of: “A refreshing walk through the south Italian countryside” and it couldn’t be more right. Nio opens up with a mouth-watering blend of decadent neroli and Calabrian bergamot, just before it gets deep into its resinous, green heart. Kicks of spice, pink pepper and woody cedar rejuvenate the composition, and vetiver keeps the refreshing fragrance grounded. Unlike many earthy fragrances, Nio doesn't fade into a dim, woody shadow. Instead, it preserves its refined boldness for hours and hours, alternately showing its vigor, and then its mysterious aspects. Nio is a rare fragrance that is fresh without being harsh, and elegant without being heavy.
