Luxury “niche” house By Kilian is releasing a third perfume in the Asian Tales line (there are also the L’Oeuvre Noire, Arabian Nights and In The Garden Of Good And Evil collections).
The first two releases have been the greatest disappointment in 2012 for me. Insipid, sheer and – dare I say it – generic, the first two Asian Tales did not capture my attention, but rather raised my ire.
So what will the third one bring?
Flowers of Immortality was created by Calice Becker, notes include white peach, carrot, iris, blackcurrant buds, rose, tonka bean and vanilla.
So far, so good. Sounds quite yummy. But I’m trying not to get my hopes to high, to avoid falling flat on my face again.
The thing with Kilian and me is this: I adore the bottles and the boxes, I can’t say I mind the look of the creator himself, but I haven’t found a perfume that is absolutely perfect for me. I like many of them, but for that kind of money, it should damn well be a perfect one, a true love.
So every time Kilian brings out something new, I get very excited and hope that this will finally be my bottle. (I do own a refill of Amber Oud, but that was a mistake, because I know I should have splurged for the regular bottle, since the refill just doesn’t strike my packaging fancy and therefore is hardly ever used. Stupid, I know.)
What do you think of the line? Have you found your Kilian yet? Are you excited about this newest addition set to be released in April?
