In the evening under moonlight
Aaah, Kilian... a brand that I'm actually very interested in, but which I don't test enough. Well, now I have only recently introduced a Kilian fragrance, but when did a Kilian commentary precede it?
The problem with these fragrances is that they are only found in niche perfumeries, where there are somehow fewer customers than in certain other shops, and where you are therefore always a little more observed... because the employees there can hardly look at anyone else because of the few customers :D

It's the same with me. Sometimes I'm lucky and I'm approached by a nice saleswoman who you might talk to, or not, but who leaves you alone when you just want to look around. Sometimes, however, there are saleswomen (or more rarely saleswomen), who withdraw again, but who pierce you with their frightening eyes and follow you at every turn, so that you simply become more and more uncomfortable the longer you stay in the shop *sigh*

And especially niche fragrances should be tried more often, to be sure which fragrance you want to get in the end with the most expensive fragrances. And you only have two arms, so that you can't spray yourself with 10 different scents and therefore have to go into the shop every now and then... and the employees will surely think "He again!" ...
*sigh again*

I think that's why I find it easier to describe scents with existing samples, because the only one staring at me here is my hairy hangover, if he should be awake at all :))

Well, enough talkin', I'm finally getting to the moonlight in the sky:

The fragrance:
Hm... the citric notes like lemon and grapefruit from the top note can already be smelled, but somehow they are a bit weak, at least they don't come across to me as lively. In addition, the fragrance has a slightly stuffy spicy background, possibly due to the combination of fragrances such as pink pepper and rice. But it's not bad, on the contrary, I think it's even quite good and interesting, but I would have liked the top note to be more lively and refreshing.
A little later I smell mango as a fruity note, which gives the fragrance a nice, exotic touch. Besides, there is some coconut or coconut milk to underline the exotic impression. Jasmine-Sambac... well, even if the fragrance gets a little more sweet over time, this floral note is more present in the background.
The mango becomes stronger and stronger as the fragrance progresses and can therefore be smelled very well.
In the base the scent is unfortunately quite inconspicuous. All the described notes weaken extremely, the tonka bean doesn't seem to get really going and the vetiver doesn't seem to fit so well to the rest with its earthy note, even if it should radiate extremely weakly.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The scent is not very strong. Already at the beginning he comes across me a little weakly and this hardly changes in the further smell process, even if he should radiate from time to time a little more strongly. More from only the proximity one will probably not notice him.
I personally also found the shelf life to be below average at five to six hours.

The bottle:
The bottle is rectangular with thick edges and tinted dark blue. On the front you can see the typical Kilian metal plaque with name and logo, the lid is chrome-plated and cylindrical. The bottle seems simple, but looks good and noble. Nice job!

Yeah, the scent's nice. Actually... except for the rather unspectacular base.
Even if the fragrance is a little too weak for me in every respect, as far as the Sillage is concerned, it is still a beautiful fragrance for about two to three hours, with exotic summer charisma, which you could wear as a discreet night scent in summer evenings (whether here or somewhere on holiday), both as a lady and as a man. And once you've arrived at the base, you can renew the fragrance by spraying it again, if it should seem as unspectacular to you as it does to me.

Maybe you are lucky and the fragrance works a little better in places where it is not only hot, but also humid. At Chanel's Allure Homme Edition Blanche I had once experienced on holiday that it could be smelled a bit better (and longer) in a hot and humid environment (because normally I find that Chanel is also very weak and evaporates quickly). Well, then, I'm sure this one would be worth a try. Whether it is worth the price, however, is something that everyone must know for themselves.

Hmm... walking under the moonlight with this scent I imagine great! And when it's a full moon and you turn into a werewolf, at least you smell nice instead of just smelling like a dog/wolf, mu ha ha ha ha :D
Oh dear, was that a bad one... :D

A Tropical Heaven
A heavenly tropical dessert of citrus, mango, jasmine sambac, coconut milk sticky rice and a woody vetiver. I have received many unsolicited compliments while wearing this.

Yes there are other cheaper "tropical" fragrances out there, but this one stands head and shoulders above the rest. The azure refillable bottle comes in a padded, mother of pearl inlaid, compact case. Refills are about $100 cheaper.

On my skin, sillage is within six feet, and longevity is about 10 hours.

It is not cloying, is perfect for Spring or Summer and can be worn for any occasion, day or night.

Of the many fragrances in my collection, this is one of my top 10 favorites.

Asian Pearl

Bobby Hutcherson - Montara

This fragrance opens with sparkling grapefruit accompanied by strong, but gentle pink pepper. Soon, the main exotic notes come in the game – fresh mango and subtle coconut. The most I like about this is the fact it is not overly exotic nor tropical, and these notes are extremely well balanced. Additionally, I do sense some yellow flowers like ylang ylang giving the composition some pale fruity twist, and possibly some musky notes. The exotic part of this fragrance is enveloped by sweet, but luminous Tonka bean. The green and gentle vetiver note appears at the end.
Moonlight in Heaven is fresh and clean, but substantial with many facets. It is not typical fresh, and it has the special, restrained exoticism and just a touch of suntan lotion vibe. Not Hawaii nor Caribbean exotic vibe, but some relaxing Asian beach charm.

Rating: 8.5/10

Tropical Bliss...
This is a lovely fragrance. I love the way it combines the notes of ripe mango, grapefruit and coconut. The coconut and tonka bean give a vanilla-like feel to it which is really nice. I enjoy wearing this a lot and I think this is generally a "feel good" perfume.

This is my first Kilian fragrance and I'm impressed. It's worth trying for the "tropical" factor. Fans of such perfumes should definitely try it out.

Balance between sweet (mango, coconut, jasmine?) and refreshing-herbal notes makes the scent really nice. Unfortunately, it remains linear.+3
