Partying with Mr. Bond
Sidonie Lancesseur, the perfumer behind Kilian's Apple Brandy is also the nose responsible for many other wonderfully boozy scents such as Straight to Heaven, Single Malt or Frapin's 1270. To say she has mastered the alcoholic genre would be an understatement.

Here Madame Lancesseur has created yet another quintessential masculine Kilian fragrance: boozy but classy, sober yet playful, elegant and mischievous at the same time like a James Bond in party mode. In that sense the scent shares more similarities with the sweet Single Malt than the drier Straight to Heaven, although if the former featured whiskey and the latter rum, in Apple Brandy the protagonist drink is a more laid-back calvados or distilled cider liquor.

The sharp, tannin-filled opening is followed by the deep aroma of old oak barrels and smoke, and the balance of this simple and effective combo shifts as the scent dries down, from a rather fruity and very alcoholic opening to a much woodier, comforting and subdued final phase. Performance is discreet throughout but acceptable, perhaps a necessity for a subtle scent that invites a few chosen ones to come closer if they want great things to happen.

All in all another beautiful creation worth celebrating with the right company and a drink or two.

A flatterer
It is next to Intoxicated one of my Kilian favorites. Very warm spicy slightly alcoholic note with the beautiful riefen baked apple tone like fresh from the oven. Lasts long and makes you want to autumn / winter mood. When the sample is empty comes to me a beautiful bottle in the collection.

Party tent, village disco and sophisticated gentlemen ?
So, thanks to the momentary crisis and the free time I gained, I finally decided to write my first comment on a fragrance.
My nose is not too experienced, but with this fragrance, which I feel is very one-sided, I dare to express an opinion
First :
The house Kilian has actually taken me very quickly, a certain class and elegance is not only conveyed by the name Henessey, but also generally by the presentation and presentation.
Beautiful boxes, specially made with velvet lined boxes with lock and flacons that look very valuable. All in all very nice, if you combine this with my preference for boozy fragrances, you can imagine that I feel very much at home when it comes to "sniffing" the fragrances the house has to offer. After Single Malt, Intoxicated, Black Phantom and Back to Black I felt like something new :

Performance Apple Brandy !
As expected, the name is Program.
At the first sniff, however, memories came up that absolutely did not match the image of the "noble brand" that Kilian would like to create so much.
I woke up as a village child and there's not much to do in the village, romping around in nature and driving the neighbours crazy when you shoot a ball against a wall with half a dozen other kids in the playground next door At the latest from the teenage age on there was a shooting party, village disco and......exactly alcohol Sometimes mixed up, sometimes too much, but always somehow there : Korn, Berentzen or Obstler.
Take a tent and combine this with hit songs, wool petry, stuffy air, smoke, pretty girls and blurry vision and above all this flag of liquor that comes out of almost every face Apple Brandy brings back exactly this feeling and even more.
With the first spraying this alcoholic kills me and a light apple note gently wafts in the background Yes Moin and off in the head with the material. Shortly before closing time, but we got a bottle of sour apple from Edeka before we go to celebrate and it must be all before you can go into the tent.
So get it down hard, intense and short. The bottle is empty, but the flag remains Waiting at bus stops, warm air and the guys around one. The smell of the drink surrounds us like a cloud, while we squat crowded in the small wooden house You feel adult, virile, intoxicated and ready for more One of them takes out a small bag, tobacco that he has stolen from his father's package and some leaves. Cool as we are we try to turn our own butts, more bad than right, tobacco lands everywhere the smell mixes easily into the air. Before we infect the first one, a group of girls squeezes itself to us It smells slightly of vanilla, pleasant
The fragrance remains something beautiful for me Many describe him as a gentleman-like person, perhaps even distinguished as an adult.
I can fully understand that and see why jmd describes this fragrance that way, because he is a Kilian, boozy and impressive, but not much more. Schnapps, to be exact apple schnapps and I personally associate this with village feast and unrestraint. Good mood.
Sure, Kilian is too fine for this level and of course, with this perfume you don't smell like a drunken youth with a bottle of Obstler in his hand, but really somehow a little more "sublime".
But unlike whiskey or cognac, brandy mMn simply does not have that gentleman's club / bar flair that so many would like to perceive as distinguished.

Sillage and durability are completely within the limits With a performance (on my skin) of about 9h and a silage that is noticeable enough not to be obtrusive, you can wear it like this. Maybe not straight to work.
Comes certainly very well in the cold season, but can also introduce him to me on a warm summer evening in nature.

All scented alcoholics will definitely enjoy this thing.
Whether the ladies like it, I would rather doubt, but the perception of fragrance is always rather subjective and dependent on the person anyway

The name fits 100%
Apple Brandy gives the buyer exactly what they hope for or what the name promises.

Already with the first spray you get this alcoholic chord with a strong woody undertone. Apple is only added. Similar to other alcoholic drinks like apple corn which tastes 85% like corn and 15% like apple.

The fragrance is mainly classified in the woody category, as it gives the impression that the fragrance was created and stored for years in oak barrels. Absolutely brilliant and the most authentic alcohol scent I know so far. There is nothing against Pure Malt! Apple Brandy gets smoother and softer over time and the vanilla becomes a little broader.

An absolute gentleman's fragrance, which appears stylistically confident and has a certain charm a la 007.

Shelf life is very good and the silage is moderate and not too overwhelming, which is also better here.

Unfortunately I'm just not a fan of busy alcohol perfumes, but whoever celebrates this direction will certainly be happy with this one.

A gently smoky, yet rather linear and warm, dusty spicy-woody Fall fragrance, with a boozy spicy-fruity opening. Nice oak and cedar combo!

An oak barrel full of apple brandy I would happily drown in. No house does "boozy but classy" like Kilian.
