Kilian Vodka on the Rocks Eau de Parfum is a cool, fragrant perfume with a soapy undertone paired with comfortable, rosy florals and tangy fruit that slowly will get taken over by ambroxan, which creates a extra lasting part of subtly floral, fruity, and blurry spiced woods. It’s described as being a part of the “recent citrus household” with key notes of “aldehydes, cardamom, [and] oakmoss.” Here’s a longer listing of notes:
- high notes: aldehydes, cardamom, coriander
- coronary heart notes: bitter rhubarb accord, rose, lily of the valley
- base notes: Ambroxan, sandalwood, oakmoss
It opened with a cool, crisp blast of aromatics–inexperienced cardamom, peppery coriander–over a clear, soapy base from the aldehydes. The rhubarb crept in with a fruity tartness that was brilliant and barely inexperienced, and it was accompanied by a comfortable, extra summary rose. The fragrance was softly floral with tangy, fruity accents for the primary 20 minutes of damage.
The ambroxan began to maneuver into play, first a blurry ambery-woods form of facet, earlier than rising in depth, however there remained a comfortable, floral-fruity accord that sat atop the ambroxan. It appeared like the bottom was now calmly spiced, semi-sweet woods with form of soapy florals leftover. Over the subsequent few hours, there have been little or no adjustments past a basic weakening of the perfume (and all its notes), which had the impact of additional blurring the notes collectively so it was all a suggestion of semi-floral, barely spiced woods.
For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as that is additionally my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered scent didn’t maintain effectively right here in any other case.
I bought my pattern in January 2022; fragrances are identified to be reformulated over their lifetime , so be aware of when a evaluate was made, e.g. a evaluate from 2010 could not replicate what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.
It lasted for six hours till it was a skin-scent and about 10 hours earlier than it was fairly tough to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection had been on the lighter facet and moved nearer to my physique/my pores and skin inside two hours of software.
The opening was attention-grabbing, however the center and drydown phases had been comfortable and blurry that I misplaced curiosity in it because it ended up on the soapier facet for my private style!
