An exquisite droplet
The first thing I must mention is this beautiful bottle, like art deco , a heavy glass from which you drink only the most expensive and exquisite and high-proof . Also the fragrance itself is exquisite and fetches me directly after the first spray, warm, heavy, sweetish and woody. This is how it must have smelled a long time ago in these noble smoking salons. I say deliberately scented because a good tobacco, which was sometimes decorated with unusual accessories, left its mark in the room for many hours.
The perfume has a large and engaging body, said in advance it suits both the ladies and the men. The slightly smoky - spicy - sweet smell remains and becomes dark and heavy for me. The thought of a cozy and crackling fireplace fire comes to my mind, as an associated comparison for the cosy, warm and sensual feeling when wearing this noble water. A tasty gourmand that certainly doesn't fit every day but is very welcome for the coming cold season. Price is about 180 Euro, clearly good is expensive and the name obligates well

Lovely boozy, sweet, nutty cognac blend
Sampling one of the latest from By Kilian, Angels’ Share, one of the two new releases of their Liquors collection (along with Roses on Ice). Angels’ Share is inspired by the phrase that refers to the volume of aging spirits or wine lost due to evaporation during the aging process, and the fragrance is a nod to Kilian Hennessey’s family empire of cognac, specifically, which is the featured note, along with hazelnut and oak, per the house website, though other sources list notes of praline, vanilla, sandalwood, cinnamon, and tonka.

Nutty and boozy have to be the most apt two descriptors, but it’s quite sweet but not too sweet, I would argue, and there is a slightly woody base underneath it all that, and there’s a vague sharpness that ties the nuttiness to the sweetness and booziness. And it really feels like a sweet boozy take on cognac rather than, say, whiskey (as in Single Malt), so cognac fans should fined.

I think that some might very well find the sweet/sharp mix to be a little much for their liking, but it’s not among the very sweetest boozy fragrances I’ve smelled, nor is it overwhelmingly nutty. Still, it leans toward the sweet cognac mostly, followed by the nuts (a mix of hazelnut and tonka is how I’d describe it), and then some woods, for which oak seems right on the money.

Angels’ Share is very nice, roughly on par with Apple Brandy, though still a clear notch below Single Malt in terms of best of the boozy fragrances of the house. It performs quite well, with very loud projection to start and quite good longevity, equivalent to my experience with most of the darker fragrances in the house.

The retail pricing of both Angels’ Share and Roses on Ice is somewhat modest (basically as inexpensive as their fragrances get), at $195 for 50ml, but this may very well due to be presentation, which does not seem to include one of the brand’s signature wooden coffrets.

Boozy sweet cinnamon roll. It's boozy but not too sweet, too heavy or too loud. It's perfectly blended. A beautiful & sophisticated scent.
