Intoxicated or just "pretty nice"?
Intoxicated by Kilian - great name, beautiful flacons, luxurious house!
Some of these exclusive fragrances, could already test in the past, from which here on Parfumo much positive feedback is to be taken. Among them were mostly heavy, almost liqueur-like scents, like Back to Black, Gold Knight, Black Phantom,
Straight to Heaven, etc.
Mostly as very high quality and delicious I found these, but none of them could be put on the wish list, the good impression still took root!

The interest in Intoxicated arose much later, through random clicks on YouTube. A certain lady, whose taste I did appreciate, raved about this fragrance in her videos.
Mysterious, sexy and with a lot of coffee, this is how it should smell!
So I was all the more excited when I bought Layton Exclusif (here again a big thank you to DanielB), a sample of the mystical Kilian scent was included.
My expectations were quite high in this respect and I secretly hoped that the scent would be in the direction of the Black Phantom, which I remembered as a delicious dark coffee scent.

-But now to the fragrance itself:
Intoxicated starts very surprisingly and at the same time, somehow a bit confusing...
Strangely enough, I perceive bubbly, sparkling notes like eucalyptus, with bitter dark chocolate, which could almost remind me of a chocolate sauna.
totally crazy!
I can't take out single notes of the fragrance pyramid, especially at the beginning, and I am a bit overwhelmed by the unexpected start.

In the course of time you can perceive some cinnamon and a slight cardamom note, which is much "brighter" than I usually know. Instead of strong dark coffee, I perceive rather brown chocolate, which certainly doesn't open as bitterly as at the beginning. The base of the fragrance is carried by mocha coffee, probably more in the direction of spiced milk chocolate with, let's say, a "little shot" of coffee, on top.
I also notice a slight "old school" touch, which is not disturbing at all, but in combination with the coffee/chocolate sweetness, it definitely reminds me of the A-Men series by Mugler.
The fragrance sounds delicious, as a gourmand lightly whipped mocha and is easy to use.

Despite the inevitable theory that Intoxicated is, even if only remotely, a copy of a designer scent, I find it extremely difficult to describe and judge the scent...

And how do you now evaluate a long awaited, highly praised fragrance, neutral, marked by many ideas?

I'll try to get it out in the open...
the fragrance is definitely a pleasure and will be quite well received. Despite the sweetness, it is certainly not too feminine or even unbearable - liqueur/heavy. Durability and sillage are moderate and also cut a good figure.
But if you consider the unbelievably proud price for a niche fragrance which also bears the name Kilian, it can only be described as pleasant, tasty, on the whole "quite nice".
Designers and niche market are sometimes very close to each other and that can be completely ok! :-)

Thanks for your time.

Overriding wasted potential
... that's the first impression when I wear Intoxicated after a long time. The fragrance has the knob quite high for almost the entire wearing time, which is quite long "Music only when it is loud" ... Herbert Grönemeyer already knew to report, whereby I could imagine that he would confirm this even today only under certain restrictions. Paradoxically, this "sound" can leave us tired at some point. Kilian's cardamom bomb here, plays a similar game with the person carrying it.
If you are with yourself, this mercilessly continuous, bouncing wellness massage for the olfactory organ can become very strenuous at some point. So despite a really long abstinence from this fragrance, I quickly felt reminded why the casual liaison with a 5ml filling never became more. The superficial beauty of this fragrance is comparable to the permanent view into a just about bearable, quite low sun.
The thought of changing the situation creeps up on me at first, then at a certain point it becomes obvious.

And everything's going so well...
It is quickly clear that we already noticed at our first contact and even today we want to give Intoxicated the 10 after the first 1-2 hours - this cardamom note, which simply cannot be from this world, immediately makes us happy Supposed problems and mental anguish of everyday life - knowing full well that they will still be there the next morning - are pushed into the background. But the fascinatingly beautiful opening also has to do with this sweet, as green coffee in the pyramid designated accessory in the pyramid. As usual, I don't smell any (good) coffee here, but that doesn't diminish the impression of the "first class scent".
Also of course nutmeg still perceptibly flanks a quite constant linear scent impression, with which it is difficult for me to smell cinnamon, or even caramel from the already not shy sweetness.

It's a shame, really. there is always a demand for silage and durability in every corner and at every end. Here, on the other hand, a little less pressure, a little more epee than the heavy sword, a little more airy transparency than the glamorous curtain worn as a cape, could have given the fragrance the finishing touch to be considered for a serious purchase intention.

So Intoxicated remains an unfinished promise that will continue to accompany me in the future with the help of a bottling part-time loved, but with which I can only end the way occasionally, if I can fall asleep in the meantime, despite its overdriven beauty, sinking into the most wonderful dreams.

Memories of summer evenings
A*Man in better. The resemblance is amazing.
Whereby there should be no patchouli in here.
Anyway, my ex-boyfriend used to wear A*Man And when I smelled Intoxicated, it was like this Test 1: Wow what a great smell It's magical, complex, simply ingenious.

Test two: Wait a minute... why does he smell like my ex-boyfriend Totally. I can't get that thought out of my head! This can't be happening. He only ever wore that one fragrance...
(Here's an idea)
I'm going on perfume, check the list: Scent twins and:
This can't be! It says A*Man.
No Intoxicated is A*Man! Or?

How come I didn't see it the first time?
Although I now forever when I smell this scent my ex-boyfriend before me, I must say: Ingenious scent.
Is among the top 5 of my favorite kiliilians.

Spicy-sweet is right. Cardamom! Ideal for the day/evening. Always goes.
Would also be an ideal signature scent
What else I would like to say:
You can smell the quality differences to A*Man definitively.
The shelf life of both products is very long.
I will definitely wear it anyway, although I have a non-erasable picture in my head now :D
But you better make your own picture Maybe I only like the scent because it evokes positive memories ;D
Sometimes it's so...

Intoxicated
I don't like A*Men and quickly sold him back. Therefore I was especially skeptical when I decided to test Intoxicated on my trip through the house of Kilian. Wrongly, as I've been told.

What I experienced with this scent, I had almost no scent before. I was actually intoxicated. But from the front. When I got the scent - it was a cold autumn day in November - I immediately let go of a few sprays on my neck and thought to myself: hm, you can't really put it that way. The reaction of my parents should confirm this. My mother just said, "What's this unusual smell?" And also my girlfriend said while we were all walking together: "Your scent is so captivating and attractive, yet arrogant and repulsive and then somehow stunning." This shows, besides the unusual reactions, what the scent has on the box in terms of projection and durability, because these reactions happened after I wore Intoxicated for about 4 hours and we were, as I said, outside in the cold. In the evening the words of my girlfriend did not go out of my head, what I clung to was her statement that the scent was stunning. That's why I had to agree with her. He does something to you, numbs you, intoxicates you, invites you to dream and think. But where does that come from? The intoxicating element is clearly coffee! You get a caffeine flash right away when you spray it on. However, the coffee is seltman smoothed and strangely fresh. It's like adding a splash of lime to a coffee (I can't describe the fragrance experience any better). The cardamom and the caramel do the rest to put the coffee in its place.

The next day I had to wear it again, this time to school. Four sprays alone stunned half the teachers' room. But positive throughout. A colleague came in the door - we are 100 colleagues* - and only said: "here it smells good of perfume". And also my table neighbours were completely enthusiastic, but could not express what is so great about the scent. When I came home late in the afternoon and sat down with my girlfriend, she just said: "Oh, are you wearing that exciting perfume again? At the time I was wearing Intoxicated already 11 hours. Awesome, I thought to myself, what a shelf life and Sillage!

In the evening in bed I still noticed the light touch and the beautiful drydown of Intoxicated and was intoxicated.

I can understand that he likes to be compared to A*Men, but what Kilian married is a true masterpiece. You have analyzed the positive of A*Men and replaced all faulty components. The fragrance is largely straight and becomes softer and softer only towards the end. The opening is ingenious and fresh coffee pure. He's never too much and never too little. It's not very sweet, but spicy and fresh! But fresh in a completely unknown sense. I could imagine him on summer evenings, too. The durability is about 15 hours until the complete decay and the projection is very perceptible until hour 8. The projection is also very exciting. My girlfriend said he polarized every few minutes, as if he would give off his scent again and again by himself.

You're probably reading it out, I'm really stunned at this smell. I wonder if that's his intoxicating side effect Maybe a warning should be mapped on it? For me it is a clear 10/10 and I would have to reduce my collection to two fragrances, then Timbuktu and Intoxicated, that's enough for me.

I am looking forward to your opinions!

I NEVER drink again... my ass...!
Hey, guys, welcome to a new scent commentary from me. Today I describe Intoxicated by Killian, which translates as violently drunk and also reminds me of a few drinking bouts where fortunately only a few have ended violently for me.

I wasn't supposed to tell it, but one thing that still embarrasses me a bit was the 2014 World Cup, when Germany played much better and not only took the 4th World Cup title, but also wrote a piece of football history with the 7:1 against Brazil. Anyway, I was at the preliminary games with a good friend at one of her buddies'. And for them it was a tradition, so to speak, to drink at least one beer during each half, as well as of course some smaller shots in between. I already drink beer, but never beer, because I just don't like the taste so much. So during the first half I just sucked on my bottle until one of them told me that the bottle had to be empty at the end of the first half... but he told me this in the 45th minute!!! "All right, there's still 3 minutes extra time," I thought, when the referee of course only gave ONE ridiculous minute, so that I could practically drink the bottle to my ex. Did I tell you I don't like beer much? And that I got another bottle for the second half? Now you probably think that two bottles of beer are not bad after all, but I wish I'd let all the short ones go,... but some pure vodkas as well as some bigger glasses with Vodka-Redbull-Mix (as well as some knockers) can really knock in! And the beer made everything overflow, especially when, unlike the other drinks, you have to choke the beer down :D You get drunk, everything is humid and cheerfully funny, until you sit in the S-Bahn (suburban train), to take the long ride home (from Mainz - Mühlheim), where the sudden silence makes your head spin faster and faster and then... you get more and more nasty. Well... my biggest fear was that I would throw up in the suburban train... I made it to the last station with all my might and I wanted to rush out. I tried to open the S-Bahn doors, but they only opened halfway (there were still these doors with these handles from time to time, which had to be pulled...). Then... bah, the rest I tell after the description of the fragrance... :D

The fragrance
The scent begins with heavy, sweet scents of cinnamon and caramel, but it also smells a little like vanilla and very slightly like honey and chocolate. In addition, the scent is tart and quite spicy. He actually reminds me of A*Men by Thierry Mugler, only he seems less biting to me.
The cardamom is probably responsible for the bitter-spicy, the coffee against it works... well, how coffee just smells. It really smells like the stronger Turkish coffee, because it is much harsher than the smell of "normal coffee". Still this coffee note smells quite nice. Besides, there are powdery scents, which make the scent softer, so that it doesn't look very biting despite the bitter and spicy scents.
Later, the fragrance continues to smell of sweet spicy scents, of nutmeg and cardamom, but unfortunately no longer of coffee, as it is becoming weaker and weaker and soon says goodbye.
Much later the fragrance smells basically the same as it did at the beginning, only with slight differences in the individual intensities. The biggest difference is that the fragrance is much softer and more pleasant at the end than at the beginning, as the fragrance becomes slightly more powdery in the base.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is quite good, one is wrapped in a large fragrance cloud and can be smelled well from a distance. The shelf life is extremely good, because you can smell the fragrance even the next morning or for a while weakly after a shower!

The bottle:
The bottle is rectangular and black on the inside. It has a chrome-plated label on the front and a cylindrical, chrome-plated lid on the spray head. The bottle has a high-quality effect and also fits well in the hand. Simple and clear lines, but well done, a beautiful bottle.

Soo, Intoxicated is a fragrance that actually reminds me a lot of Mugler's A*Men, only comes across less biting or pungent and so I like ticking better than A*Men, even if the fragrance is not really my thing in general. But he is quite nice, so I would recommend him for a test, but you should note that you should not overdose such fragrances. In any case, it is a fragrance for autumn and winter and especially suitable for going out.

So, now that you're naturally burning to see what happened when the S-Bahn doors didn't open properly at the time or were opening really slowly, so that I couldn't run out fast enough, I tell you the story again: ... yes damn it... I threw up and was extremely happy about two things! First: It was already very late, so nobody saw me, I think... and secondly I had a cloth bag with me (Alk had dragged it around before), so I could put it in! Argh, I don't usually throw up in public, but I really couldn't. The best thing was that I had called my brother on the way so that he could pick me up with the car from the station... and I pressed the barfed bag into his hand absent-mindedly, which he only noticed when the bottom of the bag got more and more wet, mu ha ha, how disgusting! :DD
Well, those were my first thoughts now when I saw the fragrance name "Intoxicated"!

Well, and no, that was actually the first and last time (so far) I threw up (somewhere outside)... and yes, I swore I'd never drink again after that. Of course I never stuck to the last one... :D
Whoa, all this is now so 5 years in the past! As the saying goes: You were younger and dumber :DD

So, now you can laugh at me! D
Anyway, I wish you a nice evening, so see you then :)

Simply intoxicating
Intoxicated? Kilian fragrances are known for weird names, but this one is very peculiar. Toxic? Toxic? Intoxicated? Drunk?
Well, after a spray or two, it'll do some combing. And the scent almost blows you away. Coffee and spices dominate the scenery and only slowly does a certain calmness begin to set in. But peace here is in no way to be equated with inconspicuousness. After an hour, my daughter comes into the room, stops and says "wow, here riecht´s full after Christmas". So much for the topic Sillage (murderous) and durability (10-12 hours, Madame Becker really knocked one out). This Christmas association of my little ones is not so wrong, although of course it is too coarse and too short, so that it does not do justice to the fragrance. Sure, the spices remain dominant, but in a fine and never intrusive way. What is added in the course of the hours is smoke, but no fear, also the compared to many others of this variety also very finely arranged. Then we have woods, the resinous kind. And everything in a really successful composition. Because that is what distinguishes class from mass.
So when can you "drunk, drunk" walk around? Well, first of all intoxicated is clearly better lifted in the cooler season. October to Easter, outside this range for me hard to imagine. Not in business either, because too loud, too conspicuous, too powerful. In your free time, however, always, at the fine dinner also and in noble clubs perfect. Quite the same kind that women jump at. The dosage alone should be taken with caution, because as already mentioned, Sillage and shelf life are really not from bad parents. A great thing, a rover, even if probably not everyone's taste. Price-performance in the total package considered m.E. ok.

Long time ago..
It was around the end of 1997, when I acquired one or two fragrances myself for the first time. Common things, chosen without ambition. Mugler's A*Men was sorted out during testing, was too sweet for me. But he remained diffuse in my memory. Nevertheless, I needed appropriate hints (see below), at which door 'Intoxicated' is knocking - although I remember more sugary coffee in the vague retrospect of Mugler.

Anyway, the most important keyword has already been mentioned: too sweet.

At the front it still fits in quite well. Something fruity from the nimm2 corner, then cocoa. Cardamom is okay; at Herr Schuhbeck's shop on the Mö I always like to have a nose of it, above the full chute hangs a lush cloud of this spicy and sour, which in turn touches the citrus-fruity note. But already after half an hour I think primarily of guaiac-caramel, later on even roasted flavours appear clearly. These are quite successful in themselves, because my usual H-cream association in this respect remains cryptic.

Coffee is fine, if you know what I mean - only today a lot of "monin caramel syrup" or something similar was added. The still perceptible hint of sweet citrus fruit on top does me a lot of good. Unfortunately the latter disappears in the course of the morning without leaving a full replacement. Although a dusty, waxy note will provide some ventilation in the coming hours and prevent total hyperglycaemia, it is undeniable that the dessert group has taken over the reigns. The spice has now been caricatured into sweetness, as if it had been candied.

In the early afternoon, Lord Baker leads fresh troops into the field: a sugary back-flavored sweetness that can penetrate as it were under the guise of a last nimm2 reminiscence. Towards the evening, a musky-soft cream with a little synthetic vanilla sweetness is achieved. I'm glad that the fragrance has long since become quite silent.

Thank Ergoproxy for the sample.

A slightly sweet and powdery spicy-earthy Gourmand for the Fall season. Nice cardamom-coffee combo, yet rather linear. 100% Unisex!

Strong coffee, roasted and brewed Turkish coffee. Yes it's similar to A*Men, but this smells so darn good and better that it doesn't matter.
