He's just there!
Well up front, this is my first entry. I am interested and not quite far away from the subject but I lack the talent to the Flavouristen, but I feel good associations and think yet a bit of ideas to be able to convey.

Kiton eau de toilette

I had as a teenager once a small fragrance sample and whenever I sniffed it I thought: this is pure elegance, I'll buy me when I'm grown up and stand in the job.
A few years have gone into the country and I found him now discounted, so it had to be then probably.

The fragrance is of his sillage rather a body to 10cm sniffer. He starts floral, somewhat fruity. Sometimes you can also smell the pineapple compote.
After an hour or two, a dusty note joins it, reminiscent in the form of a balsa wood, like a hazelnut ice cream in an idyllic garden. So not to be confused with a desert sand lemon like cacharel pour homme or a dusty brake like Narciso Rodriguez; both great scents but here it's more like the brightly polished chrome rim of my blue Bugatti, which I only notice out of the corner of my eye while my main focus is on getting in (accompanied by the gentle click of the door opener, the smoothness of the seat surface etc....). Later on, there is a mossy note with which it stays on the shirt until it just recedes at some point. Durability is about 7 hours.

This execution can be forwarded to the general appearance of the fragrance. If we take our Otto Normal allegory here, speak the good-looking, top fit, well-educated, successful man of today, then this one is (especially at the beginning by the fruit component) the young graduate in his first job, which makes his job with much verve and joy. He wears an inconspicuous but excellent suit, drives a car just as and makes quite mistakes,but they are always forgiven him gladly.

The fragrance is just there, only the wearer gives him his character. He always goes during the day, for evenings a little too bland and quiet.

I love him. He will accompany me like a dog without if and but....

if you're not looking for anything specific, this will always get you there.

serious summer in the suit !!!
This fragrance is the epitome of seriousness !!!!!

Clearly a suit fragrance that fits super to business people who want to leave a good but also professional impression, here is nothing playful or exciting here is just working towards the conclusion of a deal.

The fragrance starts quite fresh and floral, but then becomes spicier and a slight petrol note is added to the fragrance gives the masculine
Conclusion
Good fragrance that always leaves a positive impression but comes across too cool and does not arouse great emotions.
Durability and sillage are above average.

Perfect fragrance for suit wearers who want to arrive well but do not want to attract attention.

Beloved boredom
On a day in 1897, a man stands by a road and films a scene. You can find the colorized clip on Youtube. It is surprisingly tender images. We see grown people throwing snowballs. They bounce and throw, reaching exuberantly into the snow again and again, finding new teammates and covering new backs and coat collars with the white powder. It's so innocent and rotten, fun so famously and utterly colossal, that you go quiet. Silent as the film itself. They don't know they're yet to experience the bloodthirst of their age, whose earth will devour them. They throw snowballs. It is the time of innocence.

Kiton Men has always been like this scene for me: serene and rotten and a bit outside of ongoing events. The scent feels like it's from a world where you could still find a flower in your buttonhole here and there, where men wore suits in their everyday lives (as best as their social classes allowed) and in a rare moment of cockiness could suddenly become colossally cheerful.

The fragrance starts with pleasant bergamot embedded in an unsweetened pineapple. Above all, Kiton Men is wooed by a soft floral aroma that can make a gentleman out of a guy, well-meaning and quiet. It comes across as so polite and courteous, so supremely classic and devoid of foppish attitude, that it almost makes you feel like you've stepped back in time to the centuries. There is nothing at all ostentatious or showy about the fragrance. It is not at any moment calculating. And before the florals possibly come through unseemly, it also dims the burgeoning color palette with dryness. It's elegant in an old-fashioned way. A pleasant companion.

And it's just basic honest craftsmanship. You don't read a chemistry set on the packaging, just a few ingredients. The fragrance does not turn any daring pirouettes, but accompanies you through everyday life as reliably as a pocket square. And even if the great compliments are missing, because simply the effects are missing, may seem boring, where it is beautiful.

And yes, boredom. It has a bad reputation. Yet it gives us its great arc beyond jumpy attractions. It is as slow and time-lost as an uneventful winter day. The fragrance tells us a bit about that, about slow gestures and silent waiting. But it also tells of something suddenly happening. That encounter in the street where people come together and throw snowballs. Nothing worked up to it, nothing noises in between. It's what the scent is like.

Best office fragrance. Makes in the spare time also fun.
I came to this fragrance through a good friend in 2007. At that time I was 17 and found that it would also fit me, but I did not buy it because it was the signature scent of him and you do not do that somehow. He then gave me a bottle for my birthday and since then this fragrance is a permanent part of my collection.
Last summer, I wore him felt 90% of the time in the office. There he fits without restriction. The flat bottle also fits well in my bike backpack. None of my colleagues knew this fragrance and you still stand out a little without being obtrusive. Many compliments!
But he fits not only in the office, I would describe this fragrance as very versatile.
If I could only take one perfume with me on my summer vacation, it would be this one.
In the morning for a jog? Sure!
To the beach for lunch, then stroll and eat out? Totally!
Have a glass of wine at the beach bar in the evening? Sure!
For the price simply unbeatable!

Masculine Floweriness
*Kiton Men* starts strongly fresh and floral with a very subtle sweetness, which reminds me a bit of *Kenzo Power* in the top note. (No Scent Twin)

This subtle sweet floral notes gradually fades away and is slowly joined by this warm, spicy, woody, rough, masculine note.

Although I don't know many fragrances yet and I'm still relatively inexperienced with perfumes, I have rarely used/obsessed with a fragrance that can change so much.
This enchanting transformation from this clean, unisex floridity to the masculine, spicy-woody note is definitely not something you smell every day.

I would describe the performance for this fresh fragrance as good. Pleasant, non-intrusive sillage with acceptable 5-6 hours of endurance.

A fragrance that in my opinion can be worn after every occasion and every season.
Whether in the office or in leisure time, summer or winter, always wearable.

If you don't know him, it's worth testing!!!

Your shirt scent, if you don't like patchouli!
It's funny, with no other fragrance have I read so often that Kiton Men was the first (Maybe I'm out with the wrong fragrances?).
Funny because I can still remember the marketing lecture in which the Kiton brand was on the side of the conservative brands (the lecturer commented the section with "rather uncool") in a diagram. So I sat there in the lecture with my perfume on it, a "rather uncool" brand.
But did I feel that way? Definitely no!

This fragrance has a wonderful masculine-fresh charisma. Wow, you smell good, like you just had a shower." The so-called shower gel vibe here has some fragrances, which is not wrong, but many of them have a patchouli note, which I do not like, for example Aventus. Kiton Men doesn't just smell like the shower gel on the bottom shelf, it smells much more exclusive
When I was 16 I was introduced to the fragrance by my first real girlfriend, who presented me the fragrance that was on the bottom shelf of Müller's fragrance department with the words "try the fragrance here, I just love it". I agreed with her, I liked this fragrance very much right away and so it happened that I got it as a birthday present a few weeks later. He became my party scent, my "fancy food" scent, or my night scent. For a long time it remained my only scent. The girlfriend left, but the fragrance is still in my collection today.

It was also the scent I wore when I first visited my current girlfriend in her home country. After 6 train and Flixbus drives, as well as 45 minutes at the bus station in the sun, because she stood in the traffic jam, she asked me how I could still smell like fresh showered. It was Kiton Men.

Meanwhile (with middle-end 20) I wear it very gladly as everyday life - shirt smell, straight if my smell should not apply too much and I need a feeling of freshness. On the skin I take it was not very long with me (2-3 hours), however on the clothes it has a considerable durability (6-8 hours). Accordingly, its Sillage is not too big, but it fulfills its purpose in this field of application.

i used to take him
often worn, but damn today no more, since a good buddy used him as a non-stop scent I no longer want to wear him, since he has become his for me.
That's, I think, really well done. Certainly not oldscool but nevertheless very classic Cologne hints, especially with the fresh bergamot in the top note and with its rosy violet-like slightly sweet twist. He's not really Italian either, rather ... I couldn't assign him to any nation, that honours him too, or you have to do it first. It lasts quite long, but after 3-4 hours it becomes a skinscent, but still with a floral, not feminine but also not very fresh freshness. Good, unusual scent - definitely.

Emblem Of Manhood
I discovered this around the turn of the millennium. I was in a department store here in London and someone had sprayed it. I could've sworn the entire floor smelled of it as he was walking from one department to another. I followed him to ask what he was wearing, but he disappeared and I was crushed. Two weeks later the same thing happened. This time I made sure to see what he'd sprayed and immediately bought it.

This is one of the most beautiful, underestimated, yet emblematic male scents in the Western World. It's a combination of Green Irish Tweed and Fahrenheit (due to the musk, moss, and violet accords), and Aventus (pineapple) - and the sum total is far better than the individual parts, in my opinion. And, bonus, while the other three may fail to get me compliments on occasion, this one never has. Not ever.

Kiton's variant, the now sadly discontinued Black, is a deeper version of this, while the more swiftly discontinued, blink-and-you'll-miss-it summer release Napoli would make anyone swoon.

An Individual Musk
Kiton Men is one of those gents' perfumes that somehow always have been around, but without getting any bigger attention. It is still available, and you supposedly find it somewhere on the bottom shelf or a in hidden corner in your local perfume shop.

Kiton Men is an elegant, classy fragrance and a little bit on the spicy side, especially at the beginning. The spice notes are somehow bright or light and piquant – quite difficult to describe. It is not the Christmas-like spiciness that one can get from cinnamon and clove, it is more the lean coriander style. The mentioned mace in the pyramid does it just as well.

Nevertheless, spiciness is not the main characteristic. There is more to it, and it is becoming much clearer towards the base notes. What gives this perfume its special character is a certain ingredient that I would describe as an aromatic musk. It is soapy, but it is not a creamy white musk soapiness. I'd say this ingredient is aromatic and even somehow herbaceous, and it is an old friend of mine! It also determines the wonderful now discontinued Rodier pour Homme which I wear quite often. I find this aromatic musk particular masculine, and I guess it is the reason why Kiton Men is getting positive reviews. You simply have to feel attracted by it!

Around the musk, there are light floral notes bringing a little pinch of sweetness and amiability into Kiton Men, while some vague woody notes and tonka stand up against it. Kiton Men is well crafted around a fragrance note that sadly is not being used too often.

Being a light spicy musk, Kiton Men may be not for Latin Lovers. I think it fits well to men who have a not so dark complexion and maybe blond hair. Kiton Men is a mid-priced perfume – it should not cost you more than 50 € / 75 ml. For this small money you get an attractive and sexy perfume of a very rare kind, and so, I think you can call it an individual fragrance.

Just ignore the opening, the magic starts after an hour or so. And I just gotta add that that this ugly bottle has a magnificent atomizer :)
