Very helpful Review
Icing sugar in the flacon
My headline actually says a lot. But I'd like to allow myself a detailed comment, especially since a perfume in this fragrance and price category deserves it.
After I saw and heard several positive comments in the community here, from influencers and the media hype about the perfume, (For those who still don't know: obviously this is the signature scent of Rihanna, which everyone praises in the highest tones), I decided to order a sample. I had already tried several scents by Kilian, including Rolling in Love, and found most of them interesting, but not particularly wearable, let alone suitable for everyday use. So Kilian fragrances remained rather unusual for me than wearable.
However, when I tried this fragrance, my attitude changed a little bit.
My sample came in a small package that I had been expecting with great anticipation. Nevertheless, I did not want to expect too much, as the scent was described as consistently sweet and I am not exactly a fan of sweet or even gourmand scents. Thus, I took the parcel from the mail box and went to the flat. Already during the opening, I noticed that something leaked that proved to be practical, as by this way, the extremely positive first impression went straight into my nose. I first noticed something very floral and at the same time extraordinary. So the floral is by no means mainstream floral, but rather very pleasant and well coordinated at first. When spraying it on I noticed one thing in addition to the floral: the sweetness! The fragrance is sweet in its highest form, you should know that. To my own astonishment I liked it very much anyway. Normally I turn away if even a touch of overdosed sweetness comes to my nose, but not so with this scent. I couldn't stop smelling my arm at first. I was already more than convinced of the start. After a few minutes the scent developed the well-known chewing gum note that I detest so much. I thought to myself: No, please don't. The prelude was so great and now THAT?!
I waited and waited and the gum wouldn't go away..
Until some time later I could finally perceive another scent. The gum had warped and now I smelled powder. Delicious, vanilla-scented powder. Still a bit strong and sweet, also sometimes less and sometimes more smoky. This is probably the marshmallows, especially since the smoky one could also be described as roasted.
The powder reminds me of the sweeter Kenzo- fragrances and of Classique from JPG. But the Kilian scent still has something floral in the powder, which remains subliminal. The smoky also distinguishes it from other powder scents, especially since I had never smelled this combination before
The powdery note remains for quite a while and at this point I would like to praise the incredible durability of this fragrance. The fragrance really lasts forever! My fingers still smelled of the fragrance after many hours and several hand washes.
Conclusion: The prelude is sweet-floral, no mainstream sweet and definitely exclusive. The progression goes from synthetic chewing gum-like to a warm, sweetish-powdery note, which is very pleasant and lasts for a long time. This is accompanied by a very nice smoky and roasty scent
I certainly do not classify the fragrance as suitable for everyday use, especially as it is too sweet for me during the day. On the other hand, it fits perfectly into a special evening in autumn or winter. Also very recommendable at home for spraying on, cuddling and feeling good:))
For me, definitely a good mood maker!
Another tip for those who avoid too sweet in everyday life, but like slightly sweet scents:
Just spray the fragrance the evening before or a few hours before going out, then it will sit nicely and is not too sweet anymore :)
