Mint-Green Perfection!
My goodness, what genius stuff is this! Too bad it's only a Limited Edition.
The start is as fresh and green as you can imagine.
Unlike other Minz fragrances, this one stays fresh throughout (presumably by Vetiver) and has a shelf life that is second to none!
Portable all year round! Masculine impact, definite!
The limited availability is just annoying, I also don't understand why a refillable bottle is produced when there are no refills....

Despite all these disadvantages I let myself be carried away to a purchase.
If it were not a Limited Edition would have the signature potential!
For all Mint deniers, this one is worth a test. So Kilian can also be fresh, please more such attempts!

Pure freshness in an unknown form
One of the best fragrances I've had in a long time. Extremely fresh but at the same time very soft, it actually reminds a bit of Mojito, but rather an alcohol-free or quite clear with lots of ice.

The fragrance is very linear and simple - nothing changes here from opening to drydown. But in this simplicity lies ingenuity. Captivated me from minute one.

I knew it! I knew it! And I've always said it! You can be described as delicious! DD
Pfffft...
There I write in innumerable comments, how "delicious" ladies with certain smells should look like (whereby some probably don't like this phrase at all), then suddenly a smell of Kilian appears, which translated means: "I like it, like you TASTE".

Not "I like the way you RICHST", but "I like the way you taste". A scent name! So it's not so wrong if I use the term "delicious" from time to time (or quite often :D)! Didn't I? :DD

Hey he he, and now comes a unisex scent, which hopefully not only ladies, but also men (especially miiiiich!!! *sigh*) hopefully also a little more tasty to make! The bottle makes a nice impression at least once in a while.

The fragrance:
Oh wow! The beginning flashes somehow! I smell lemons and mainly a great peppermint, which smells very refreshing to me. I find the green leaves not only green, but also a little bit tart and herbaceous. In any case, the top note is very very great and provides a good mood in addition to the slightly sparkling refreshment.
Of course, the top note soon disappears a little or becomes weaker. Nevertheless, the scent remains fragrant with its now weakened peppermint notes, and now flowery scents seem to appear as well, although I can't really say whether these also smell like the magnolias indicated.
Unfortunately the fragrance becomes more boring towards the base. I don't smell the given vetiver very much, the earthy note seems more like patchouli than grassy vetiver. In addition, the base is sweetish. I'm not sure where the sweetheart comes from, but I like the magnolias. Only a little later can I smell Vetiver approaches, but I still notice a patchouli note.
As I said, the base is the least spectacular and I think that's a pity, because the top note had started so great.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is simply average and therefore you will only be able to smell it a little from close up, in the beginning of course a little better.
The shelf life is good, which should be due to the sweetish base. Anyway, I could smell it on my skin for about eight hours.

The bottle:
The bottle is rectangular, thin and high. In contrast to most of the black flacons of Kilian, this one is white and you can see green brushstrokes on the front that look like grasses. Otherwise, on the front you can see the typical chrome-plated metal badge with the names and brand names, which looks nice, but is sometimes harder to read (at least at first glance), depending on the incidence of light. The lid is also chrome-plated and cylindrical. A beautiful bottle!

Soo,... this scent of Kilian leaves me with rather mixed feelings. Because on the one hand I find the top note damn great and refreshing, so that it almost immediately encourages you to buy, even if even the great top note is not worth the money, because there are clearly cheaper just as many fragrances with a beautiful top note.
On the other hand, the scent is rather boring, especially in the base, and only smells earthy-sweet and honestly not even really great or convincing.

So despite the sweet note at the end the fragrance is not as "delicious" as you might think (or better said how I would write it :D), and secondly despite the nice start it is less convincing, which is a pity, because especially after the nice start the disappointment is even bigger, if you find the base a little too irrelevant like me.

Of course you have to keep in mind that such fragrances, which are meant for the summer, always have a meaningless fragrance towards the end, so that often only the head and heart notes are really good, that concerns most fragrances, but here with this fragrance it is at least price-performance really bad :D
Otherwise I would have said that you could spray the fragrance faster to enjoy the top note longer, but no,... almost 200 Euro (by the way for 50 mL!) is not worth this fragrance to me.

If you're still looking for a great peppermint scent that smells so great, try Menthe Fraîche by Heeley, which I think is much more successful! The base is still nice and the fragrance costs much less (about 125 Euro for 100 mL).

Kilian Seriously Stepping Up
I have not hitherto been greatly fond of Kilian perfumes: I have found them a bit tepid, to be perfectly honest - certainly as-considered-in their price-brackett. But these two (this and the 'feel' one, are a different matter! Yes, I know it's a triumvirate; but it is these two I am talking about, and to my mind they form a complementary pair. A description of one, except insofar as they differ in the sheer ^content^ of their ^flowery^ component, is effectively a description of the other. Both are extreme musk (or quasimusk) bombs, and such floweriness as they possess is perceived not but through a shimmering haze like unto a force-field such as they have in Frank Herbert's ~Dune~, or some similar thing. 

Actually (it is now 5th of April) I am not supposed to have these yet, as the official release-date is 16th if April; and I think I was genuinely at least somewhat privileged to get them.

Also, the getting them has serendipitously rehabilitated Kilian with me more generally speaking; as whilst I was settling for them, someone squirted themself an assay of another Kilian 'fume - one that I have already got (rose oud), & the düft plucked me askance; and, "whoa! that is so gorgeous! I seem to have misprisen it somehow all this time!": but, not insuchwise that these became anytheless outliers by virtue of it; and they remain that to my mind - outliers in a big way. I do really very strongly emphasise that.

So, basically what happened here is that my Kilian apothecary, who has suspected for a long time that I have been unquick about her produce, despite my efforts to conceal it (perceptive, she is!), has placed these (and the third one of the triumvirate) in front of me, and I, with a (probably scarcely concealed) inner sigh said "alright I'll give them a try then" ... go through the motions somewhat reluctantly ... but then! what's this!? (the 'Feel' one) ... now this is actually ^something^! Try the next one (the 'Taste' one) ... same effect! To be perfectly honest, the third (can't remember what it's called now) doesn't grab me in the same way; but we have an epiphany here - suddenly we have two outstanders! My Kilian apothecary is ^well^ pleased, I can tell you.

I know I hadn't exactly been brutally honest with her all that time; but I had been honest 'in a sense' - in the sense that whenever she had asked me what I thought of her produce I would try to find in my mind some real good thing that I could say about it, rather than actually ^fake^ a high opinion; but she could always tell I was struggling to find that ^good thing^. So such honesty as I had broached unto her now payed-off big-style, coz she knew my rapture was real!

I do emphasise again that I very strongly recommend these, as they are to my mind ^really very^ good - even for the price, which is
^well into^ the high-end brackett.

They are also different ^in detail^; but the respect in which they are different is to my perception secondary to that inwhich they are similar. This one is more of the fresh-æry-aqueous kind: it's actually got mint in it! and that usually puts me right-off; but in this the mint is so exalted by the quasimusk it just _doesn't_ matter!

[As for the particularities of its °partner° (the ~Feel~ one) I would say the following.
This one is thick & heavy & perhaps even a tad narcotic - the ylang-ylang note is prominent. It is rather on the sweet side, but not gourmandy - no, this stuff way transcends the gourmandy÷not-gourmandy dichotomy! But I think even were it a lesser 'fume with a similar profile it would not be gourmandy forall its sweetness.]

These twain are a complementary pair. I normally abhorr that idea as a marketting stunt; but in this case I _do_ think they actually are.

And then I did something really bad! She kindlily invited me onto the waiting-list for the limited supply the store was appointed ... but I hesitated ... and then (but at least at the same store) another apothecary (my chief) one, arranged, by °irregular° means, to get me them in my hand!! The Kilian apothecary was ^very^ cross - she tried to conceal it just as I had tried to conceal my thitherto-unfavour towards her produce; but she failed, just as I had failed! I know it wasn't exactly ^nice^; but it didn't do any real hurt, & when uwr paying that sort of minlet for perfumes ...
