Kudos to Milton Lloyd for Kudos
Imagine yourself wandering through the damp, wooded countryside, the gentle yet chilly autumn breeze throws more amber & scarlet leaves into the cloud tormented sky as the large orange-red orb of the sun begins to dip lower on the horizon, which begins to fill with the smoke from wood fires. Light rain falls on the tumbled leaves and branches, draining the last of the summer's nutrients into the soil.

A scent which would perfectly accompany such a mood and situation would be none other than the renowned Terre d'Hermes, another is Kudos by Milton Lloyd. What? Yes, this fragrance is a clone or replica, call it what you will of the famous release by Hermes. It's no coincidence that the word Kudos is Greek (like Hermes of course) and means admiration or recognition that someone or something gets as a result of a particular action or achievement. A very apt name as it happens that this fragrance belies it's very low price to be an incredibly worthy alternative to that which it is trying to live up to.

OK it may not be quite as rich or complex as Terre d'Hermes but it really isn't all that different either! The opening of Kudos does have a slight burning/ashes kind of thing going on in the background but that eventually diminishes to leave a scent that most noses would believe to be that of it's more expensive counterpart from the house named after a Greek god. The combination of bitter orange, grapefruit & pepper give the opening it's refreshing sharpness, these notes sound like those of a typical summer-fresh scent but the spicy ginger brings some warmth whilst the wooded heart of cedar together with the backbone of vetiver, plus the resins, amber and musk provide Kudos with heavier, smoky and woody character. To anyone who likes these notes it could be the perfect scent to accompany the transition from summer to winter, that amber traffic light of a season we call autumn or fall.

Right now in the middle of July and the warm sun blazing here in France I don't really want to think too much about the end of summer. Although each season has it's charm I'm not a big fan of the days when the sun begins to set so early and it's dark well before dinner time, however I'm looking forward to wearing Kudos when it does.

The only downside here is the 50ml bottle itself which is like a mini-deodorant spray can. You have to get used to the sprayer so as not to spray too much, but it's a 'small price to pay' for the surprisingly good quality of the scent at such low cost!

Value for money: 10/10 (I paid just under 10 euros, free delivery but Kudos is available for as low as £5 +delivery direct from the producer).

UPDATE: 4th November 2019 - Comparing this to other similar scents such as Max'd Men by AL Haramain or Terre d'Hermes, this one of course isn't as pleasing to the nose and comes across as extremely synthetic, however the value for money remains very high with above average performance, just don't go expecting super high quality. Good for the price.

Bitter orange & earth with grapefruit, spices & wood. Incredibly similar to a famous scent from a house named after a Greek god. Very good.+1
