Navitus Parfums XO Brandy- An amazing Boozy Gourmand that is a seductive fragrance making the wearer feel sexy, captivating & magnetic. Blended brilliantly by Master Perfumer @sidonielancesseur it opens with a blast of Indian Davana, African Almond & Dates for a sharp bitter herbal introduction with an underlying sweet sugary fruitiness from the dates & almonds. A medicinal cherry cough syrup like quality is also perceived under the herbal feel. This makes way for a boozy heart comprising of Brandy, African Coffee, Heliotrope & Virginian Cedarwood. The Brandy & Coffee produce a creamy liqueur like dark accord that fuses seamlessly with the fruity dates to create an intoxicating mix of sexiness. The Heliotrope & Cedar add a subtle sweet woody powdery feel that balances out the boozy facets perfectly. Dries down to a base of Cane Sugar, New Caledonian Sandalwood, Indonesian Patchouli & Southern American Tolu Balsam. The Cane Sugar creates a saccharine sweetness overdose but the creamy smooth Sandalwood controls it before it gets diabetically sweet. The Patchouli & Tolu Balsam add an earthy balsamic feel beneath the sugary notes & this gives the scent a complex depth. The result is a fantastic fragrance that will blow you away with its multidimensional layers & unique scent profile. Performance is excellent at 10-12 hours with great Projection & Sillage for the first 3-4 hours then it slowly gets closer to the skin.
