Are Xerjoff Fragrances Worth It
The house of Xerjoff is a fantastic niche fragrance house. With their beautiful scents and equally beautiful bottles, these fragrances certainly grab a lot of attention. However, there is one main downside to this fragrance house. A Xerjoff fragrance can be quite expensive.
Luckily, though, there is a way to try out Xerjoff fragrances for a little cheaper. The way to do this is to purchase a fragrance decant. A decant is basically a smaller bottle, usually 5ml or 10ml, filled up with the original fragrance. This way, you can try out the original fragrance without having to commit to a full bottle. If you’d like to learn more about fragrance decants, where to purchase them, and how they’ll save you a lot of money, you can read this article I wrote here!
Still, though, owning a Xerjoff fragrance is more than worth it. With the purchase of a Xerjoff fragrance, you get a gorgeous fragrance in a beautiful bottle. The price is a bit high, but the scent definitely makes up for it. I’d recommend you take a look at your current collection and see which of these Xerjoff fragrances would fit in perfectly!
