What kind of vodka is it?
Well, the question which vodka it is now is difficult to answer. It is not a clear water like "Belvedere" or "Grey Goose", it is also not a flowery fruity like "Carnival" or "Ciroc". One thing is clear: it is pure, noble and tells a story. So it's not a cheap vodka and that would be outrageous at this price. In fact, I don't think it's a vodka at all, but rather a vodka-based macerated gin. So let's take a bottle of Beluga Vodka as a base and tip it into a kettle. At the beginning it smells fine like a bouquet garni consisting of power giving coriander and sweet-bitter seductive cardamom. I would even say that a few leaves of lovage have sneaked in to add their unique scent to this gin. Gradually a rose joins in, floating singly on this pot while the bouquet garni finds itself at the bottom of the cauldron. Oh it seems we forgot a ladle for stirring and occasional testing. Well the former we can fortunately remedy with the rhubarb growing there among the lilies of the valley. So we take a thick stick to stir and when we break off the stick the white floral scent of the lily of the valley around it rises to our noses. So why not, it certainly won't hurt. And yes very well, they did the drink good they give the gin a soft fluffiness and a nice green note. The stirrer aka rhubarb is just left in the kettle. And overnight this maceration just stays outside in this beautiful garden. Unfortunately, it storms over night and it breaks a small moss-covered branch off and lands in the pot. The pot spills over and so does the single beautiful rose blossom that was floating on top. The next morning we want to taste our mazeriertrn gin and realize, the rhubarb was possibly a little too long in it, because the gin took towards the end of a slightly sweet fruity note is embedded in all the herbs and earthy notes. But in itself, the taste is still nice subtle purist, after all, it pulled only one night. Tastes it does all times, you could well make a light gentle Moscow Mule abwandlung with 8cl each Bundabergs Blood Orange Brew and Ginger Beer, 2 cl Yuzu juice and 6cl of this macerated "Vodka, served on the Rocks".
Cheers!

Žubrowka on the Rocks? (Sidonie Lancesseur, 2014)
Scentrack: Richard Cheese – Gin and Juice

Good vodka is odorless and devoid of any taste, thus in my opinion, creating a vodka-based fragrance is a challenging task. One has to recreate the essence of this East European drink without obvious ethanol smell that consumers rate as cheap. It seems, the perfumer solved this problem by introducing some spicy and herbal element to the composition. Vodka on the Rocks opens with the pale whiteness of aldehydes accompanied by some pepper, strong coriander and herbal cardamom. The initial blast tenders gradually to washed flowers accord, delicate by design yet strong in performance. This fresh, futuristic bouquet is paired to very nice rhubarb note. All the interplay notes morphs to gray base of Ambroxan and something similar to white musk, which gradually lose their intensity. Does Vodka on the Rocks remind me of real vodka? Yes, but just on one brand. Polish vodka Žubrowka, infused with bison grass, and very distinct herbal qualities, which was prohibited by the FDA until 2010 due to its coumarin content. Additionally, the herbal aspects of this composition reminds of several G&T-inspired fragrances. The performance of the composition is average (5-7 hours) with moderate sillage.
In conclusion, Vodka on the Rocks, is a solid recreation of vodka atmosphere. However, it lacks distinctiveness of the other By Kilian offerings. Personally, it is not my cup of tea, but one who wishes to wear a fresh herbal/alcohol combo could appreciate this fragrance even more. Still, the main question remains - is it proper to drink vodka with ice?

Travel Set "Blind buy" Error
I'll make it short and sweet:
I had bought the fragrance based on the description and various reviews and had already put it away at the first test. He has something I can't describe and disgusts me - it was one of the few scents I immediately scrubbed off my hand with a nailbrush.

I'd like to describe what it is, but I just can't figure it out.
Actually I like almost all components of the fragrance itself...

What did I learn? Test before you buy!

The unused 7.5ml refill sprayer for the pocket sprayer I will probably sell at Souk....

An aftershave in a package of a Kilian fragrance
It's a little sad for me to say it, but this scent is unfortunately a shot in the oven. To anticipate. He's totally unbalanced and in no real harmony. The alcoholic note already has something medically salty that does not suit this fragrance at all. It is a series of aquatic and herb notes which are not so well balanced that they are pleasant to wear. In the end it just smells like a better aftershave, which has ventured into the spicy corner.
Especially if you know the other scents of Kilian, he is completely out of the line, although he is already in the line "fresh" with others. But here is nothing new, nothing unknown, nothing that makes other Kilian fragrances special.
If then the price comes to speech, then one will demonstratively decline even as a Niche-lover, because even with much pleasant thoughts this smell would hardly find in a collection
Too bad, next time please better and rather a direction like Allure L´Homme Sport Edition Blanche, in an even creamier version.

As if cardamom was used to conceal a lab accident.
Hideous.
