I thought I was going to love this as Luca Turin describes it as being like Caron's fantastic Pour Un Homme but with added richness and higher quality materials. Sadly, A Taste of Heaven doesn't come near PUH's simple and sunny perfection. My main problem with AToH is the cardboardy/plastic off note that it has. Additionally, I find the lavender strangely flat and uninteresting. A …Read more

This is a structured fragrance with smooth transitions between its phases. It opens with lavender together with just a bit of absinth and a bit of wormwood. Then for around half an hour it's a transparent, cool, herbacious fragrance on me. Soon my skin starts amping up the sweetness of vanilla and maybe some amber. I think this prevents me from sensing some other notes which are supposed to …Read more

A rather masculine fragrance. A very familiar scent but I cannot put my finger on it. Luca Turin refers to Caron Pour un Homme. All I know, I don't like this vanilla lavender combo and I do not find it sexy or alluring. On a man, it would be a deterent. But that is only my personal opinion.

Oh man, I'm in love. *swoon*


First off, I'm not sure why this is marketed merely as a men's fragrance as it's quite sweet.Yes, it does start with a shaving cream-esque scent, but after about half an hour or so more of the vanilla and tonka peek through. I can definitely tell there's more than one kind of lavender in here as it's not the flat clean …

I sampled this recently. Good, I like lavender. Don't know if I'd buy it; have to test it some more , but I do like it.

Notes: african orange flower, geranium, bergamot, rose, wormwood, lavender, patchouli, oak moss, amber, vanilla and tonka bean.

This fragrance opens with notes of lavender and wormwood. Sweet florals smooth the edges of these distinctive notes; the resulting accord is a soft herbaceous-woodsy one. The fragrance turns into a classic fougere once oakmoss, lavender and a dash of patchouli …

I won't go on and on about this one. It's essentially a gonzo classic Guerlain - a cross between Jicky, Shalimar, and Sous Le Vent. Really! (Unfortunately none of those are hg material for me)

Goes on very masculine, but very nice, a rich smooth mossy leather chypre with faint spice, woody patchouli. Dries down positively edible. Similar to Elsha 1776 in the almost opoponax powdered incense/leather and spices. Smooth, warm, compulsively sniffable. This might be what Mitsuko smells like on other women. Incredible, delicious, divine. Since Mitsuko stinks on me, this may be the next …Read more

The opening is soft lavendar and absinthe - two notes im not a big fan of. However these slowly morph down and out comes a incredibly sexy, smooth tonka, with a hint of vanilla but not girly or too sweet, its kind of smoky, like a man's vanilla but this is definitely wearable by a woman. You can tell it's a quality scent, I just don't see myself wearing this much so I will finish …Read more

The price point bothers me. I really dislike it when fragrances go over $100 for a 1.7, much less a 3.4. While overall the Kilians are exquisitely made with great ingredients, a really skilled nose, and gorgeous packaging, at this stage in my perfume thing, I don't want to expend the resources necessary to have any of them.


On the positive side, the juices are of great …
