Sugar, yeah, sure..
How the hell is sugar supposed to smell? Was so my ulterior motive when I pulled out of the metal can the small vial. Schwupp, on it with it. And lo and behold, there is actually a nuance of sugar apart from the caramel, which does have a smell of its own. I am surprised.

But what jumps out at the nose quite hard at first is a very very dominant cardamom. If you don't like that, you'll hate this scent. Cardamom mixes here but very organically with a fine, sweetish cocoa note and is rounded off by sugar. In combination, the whole thing seems a very little bit like coffee, but it is obviously not.
There's also a familiar Kerosene smokiness hiding in the depths. Whether it's burnt caramel.... Well.

Then, with time, the composition becomes softer, less cardamom-heavy and overall almost oriental. But under gourmand flag.

Great surprises the fragrance does not offer. Compared to other representatives of the brand, it is rather of medium intensity and what for cocoa lovers I would say. For me though typical Kerosene a candidate with guilty pleasure. But not enough for the bottle. In the vial is still something, let's see if in winter my impression is different

The Christmas mood
For me, it really recreates the atmosphere of a house where close people gather on the eve of Christmas, they drink aromatic coffee with cardamom, bake vanilla buns, make golden caramel for shortbread.
And on the next day, my hair clearly smells of coffee and vanilla, and I wish to stay at home to enjoy the holiday and its treats longer.

Sweet and spicy cardmom/caramel/sugar mix, nice follow-up to Winter of 99
This is my second wearing of Kerosene’s latest release, Sweetly Known, a sweet and spicy mix of burnt caramel and cardamom, primarily, with a notable element of sugar, and finally vanilla and cocoa, though for me, the first three notes tell most of its story.

As in my initial wearing, I am inclined to compare it to Winter of 99, a more molasses-based sweet-and-spicy vanilla scent and the preceding release from early 2019. Sweetly Known is more deeply rooted in the cardamom and sugary burnt caramel, rather than molasses, and is slightly lighter overall than Winter of 99. Still, it packs a punch, and is spicier overall than Winter of 99.

It’s really very easily enjoyable, clearly apt for the cold weather but not overbearing to the point of being unwearable on, say, a summer evening. And despite the prominence of cardamom, it’s rather delectable in a candy sense, still quite sugary, despite the vanilla and cocoa notes not factoring too prominently into my experience of the fragrance.

Sold via the house website as well as Indigo Perfumery and Indiescents, both great boutiques, Sweetly Known has the same exceptional pricing as its predecessors, at $140 for 100ml.
