Fragrantica - "I was on the search for a “masterpiece” fragrance after looking at tons of fragrances and their reviews. First of all, tobacco is one of my least favorite notes. Many fragrances with tobacco give me headaches or smell too old school for me. But I went for it, and yes, this is a true masterpiece. This is so well blended that it you can’t just claim it as a “tobacco fragrance” because there’s so much more to it. The lavender and honey smell like heaven in this. If you like smooth, sweet, rich fragrances, then this is for you. I’m 21 but when i wear this I feel like a mafia boss."
Fragrantica - "This is probably one of the best scents from the house. Don't quibble with me on this. Perfectly unisex as well, I wear it and enjoy it to bits!"
Fragrantica - "The greatest fragrance Man has ever created."
Fragrantica - "I can't believe there's people out there who don't like this perfume, pure psychopaths! Sexy, brave, strong and bold."
Fragrantica - "Naxos is a gorgeous composition dominated by notes of vanilla pipe tobacco and honey. The cashmere and tonka bean add a wonderful silken creaminess; a hint of lavender blends perfectly with the dominant notes. This fragrance is just gorgeous and rich. The quality is obvious. It has earned a rare place in my “love” category– which is surprisingly rare."
Fragrantica - "This was the unisex winner (with Side Effect for Male) in our condos association's annual perfume party. 70 noses sniffing designer and niche.
This is absolutely my #1 fragrance and my signature. From the opening that smells fresh to mid and dry down and that delicious honey and lavender (the tobacco is not a note I would normally like - but is so well blended that I don't really detect). This fragrance lasts all day for me, and leaves an amazing scent trail."
