Alexandria, the thousand-year capital, among the very greatest and most enduring cities in history, and a shining center of history, culture and wealth. Now, Xerjoff endeavors to rebuild Alexandria to the height of its Hellenistic glory, gifting us a fragrance that overflows with rich fruits, spiced woods, and sumptuous florals that sing with the stunning accomplishments of this jewel of the ancient world.
Alexandria II opens with a mouthwatering note of apple, decadently juicy, sprinkled with precious cinnamon and contrasted with sophisticated lavender. A heart of luscious Bulgarian rose cries out with passion, smoothed by lily of the valley, whose poisonous nature belies a hint of danger- after all, how often through history did Alexandria come under deadly siege? So, too, does the extravagantly rich base juxtapose the comforting and the dangerous, as smooth, ambered vanilla meets a virile blend of matured ouds from Laos and Thailand. Robust, complex and positively enchanting, Alexandria II is a striking evocation of one of humanity's greatest achievements.
