Xerjoff has just announced a new upcoming fragrance project for this summer. This new addition to the house’s portfolio of perfumes will be called Amphorae, and it will consist of six different attar entries under its umbrella. Amphorae will be a limited collection release that is made for those with very refined taste.
The word “Amphorae” is of Greek origin, and it refers to a vase-like container that was used to store the most valuable possessions back in the day. Hence, the collection was named so; to highlight the precious and prestigious note composition involved in making those six attars since only precious and rare oils were implemented in Amphorae’s blends.
Each of Amphorae’s attars reflects the energy of a particular semiprecious stone symbolized with a different cap design for each attar bottle in the collection. The whole set gives off this luxurious vibe that screams purity and class. Those six distinctive attars have their unique characteristics that make each stand out.
Key notes: Vanilla From Madagascar, Cypriol From India, Indian Jasmine Sambac, Haitian Vetyver, Musk Infusion, Oud Blend Of Cambodia, Udomsai Laos.
