Latest Reviews of Casamorati Regio

I'm not going to wear it, it feels too masculine for me, but I love how classic yet different this is. It's a lot of Cologne citrus fruit with a dry oud-like smell backing it. Very earthy, like mud drying in the sun.

Off the top of my head I would say that Xerjoff probably has a half dozen variations of the Italian Citrus cologne type of fragrance...i find this one to have a nice citrusy opening with more of a " green " flavor...then, the carnation/geranium kick in for me adding some hard edged flowery aspects...dries down kind of musky vanilla...the vanilla has a touch of that wet cardboard effect...not one of my favorite Xerjoffs, but still enjoy wearing it...

This is a very beautiful gentlemanly, dark, and somewhat green Italian musk fragrance. The opening is very citrusy yet minty with bergamot, grapefruit, and geranium, and some sort of green leaves accord. On the drydown, it becomes really musky (from the ambrette/musk mallow accord), and floral with lots of carnation and a hint of herbal lavender. I also think I get a hint of leather in the drydown though it's not listed in the notes. On my skin, it's essentially a dark musk and carnation scent. I normally don't like carnation too much when it's used in cheap colognes as a synthetic note, but the carnation in this is so natural smelling and lively that I can't help but love it. The overall impression of the fragrance is smelling a garden of carnations in a dark cave somewhere or perhaps beside an old gothic mansion at midnight. It's quite unique, and the only thing similar to this I've smelled is possibly Geo F. Trumper's Eucris (though that goes in the direction of blackcurrent and oakmoss). The performance for this fragrance is also amazing (like most Xerjoffs), and one doesn't need to spray a lot to get great longevity from it. The projection for this fragrance is moderate leaning strong, while the longevity is fantastic, running at 6 hours of projection before becoming a skin scent. Overall, this is a dark gothic masculine masterpiece with a very unique set of notes and extremely natural scent.

Quality and class without any doubt. This fragrance is not for everybody and if all you know about perfumes fits in a Calvin Klein bottle, you cant understand Regio. Elegant from the first seconds, this scent is oriental but also an western perfume in the same time.

Beach fragrance. Suntan lotion, marine, tons of vanilla. Too much vanilla, makes a waxy fragrance that isn't working. I'm not getting all of the floral notes listed.

Opens up fresh and minty (geranium) and it feels high quality in the first minutes. Dries down pretty quick to an expensive soap smell. Nice and nothing more. The quality goes away as it dries down from great to meh.

moderate sillage and good duration.. a very expensive and generic cologne...

I am a big fan of this whole line from Xerjoff that seem to all rally around a gourmand approach. Regio is a Delicious Maritime Salt-Cologne that smells like an urban beach boardwalk. Not a new concept, but the quality of the ingredients appears to be far above the norm and, admittedly, I am a bit swayed by nostalgia - it smells exactly of summers as a child, not like the synthetic competition. The sweets and sours and salties are all there - even the suntan lotion. Lasts longer than other salty-citrus that caught my attention (legno di nave / seawood) - at least for me. Comparatively, I find this to avoid the sweetness of some of the other casamorati members and to be the deepest and more meditative of the original line, but the final icing on the cake (the most recent release called simply 1888) is also stunning.

Absolutely not worth the price , very messy kinda blending from the start with some sweet , dense floral and fruity infact syrupy mixture having no clarity in notes those could be enjoyed, some times it reminds me of Eugenol a heavy dose of Eugenol and it settles to some kinda Black Orchid of Tom Ford. Both Thumz Down

A bit of a joke mentioning the top notes as they last about 20 seconds at the most. Regio pretty much dives straight into what I would call ' rose jam', a rich sensual note enriched with what I swear is plum and then caramelised. 'Lyric Woman' springs to mind -- it has the same sort of denseness, but a touch sweeter although less feminine imo. I really like it, especially in this cold weather - it's warm and comforting. The bottle is outrageous though -- Liberace would have liked it. Expensive.

Deja-vu, deja-vu, deja-vu! Good quality and moderatley sweet floral/oriental with a slight fruity/aquatic vibe and no other particular twists. Smells fine but, hoestly, it could be mistaken for most of the fragrances in the same vein. Anything but distinctive.

Same old story: at these prices, I expect something more than an anonimous fragrance orchestrated with good quality ingredients.
