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.
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 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).
