Too much of a good thing. Or when liquor manufacturers make perfume
With the fragrances of Kilian I just do not warm up. So many I have already tried and still do not want to give up. Because the fragrances, the flacons and the presentation always appeal to me. That the spark actually jumps over with the content, unfortunately, has not yet worked. Since the days are slowly getting shorter and the temperatures cooler, I thought it a good time to test times the Angels Share, which I recently discovered in a trial swap list of a dear perfume.

No sooner said than done. Today I wanted to me this noble droplet to mind. And quite honestly. The first impression was great! What a top note. It must be the noble brandy, which conjures up a smile on my face here. This alcoholic note strikes me as green-sweet, even a bit fresh. I imagine I perceive similarities to Saint Julep by Imaginary Authors, which also has a spirit note. Had even very briefly, maybe so 20 minutes long, played with the idea to get me this fragrance eventually. Yes, I'm afraid I am a liquor throttle.

As always, I spray not only a small amount on my hand, but also scented in parallel a cosmetic tissue and place it in a room. And what bangs against me when I enter this room again, I like in contrast to the rapturous, almost green liquor top note on the back of my hand unfortunately not at all. These are tonka-sweet swaths peppered with masses of mulled wine spice and Christmas cookies for cutting. So dense that I almost can no longer find the entrance to the room. Staggering I discover the Tuchlein and also here frauftets again so beautifully, I hold my beak directly to it. But in the projection - terrible! Too sweet, too thick, too violent.

So this is what happens when liquor manufacturers make perfume. They want to make us all hopplahopp to alcoholics. Otherwise, I can not explain this result here. No, you should not enjoy a little glass or more precisely swirl of it, smile and be happy. No. It has to be the whole bottle. Headaches from sugar and fusel alcohols guaranteed. Plattmachen wants one this Kilian Hennessy! Evil, evil!

Unfortunately, this is too much of a good thing for me. With such sillages, I'm out. And the further the fragrance develops, the more this divine liquor head note makes itself out of the dust and it remains this sweet mush, which I also perceive in the projection.

However, who needs monster sillagen with hangover guarantee and in particular strongly sugared alcoholic beverages is not averse to, for this Angels Share is right. The bottle I find beautiful and at least on the photos it looks very valuable. Just like a good cognac. But we stay better well-behaved with a little glass. A nice weekend and cheers!

Many thanks to FrauKirsche for the test opportunity.

Sometimes the scent finds you too!
Actually, I did not want to run after a hype fragrance more, properly hooked, the fall is too violent. Usually you screw the expectations so high that you can only be disappointed. But of course I liked the bottle very much and the fragrance pyramid also spoke to me. So the fragrance came on the watch list but I did not actively chase him.

I was just exchanging scents with dear perfumer @Duygu when she offered to send me your last two sprays of Angels Share. Well, now I do not say no.

The fragrance mail arrived and I unwrapped 3-4 samples. I ripped the cap off the tester and held my nose directly to the atomizer. Mmmhhh yes, oh yesaaaaahhhh , meeeehhhhrrrr. That's a good one, that could be mine. But please let's not do it too fast. Let's take it slow, take our time to get to know each other better. It's not like we have a lot of options. Two sprays max.

Lovingly, I rewrap the good piece and set him aside. For a special moment.
Friday was finally the day. I had it all planned out. A new season of a favorite show is starting so the timing was fixed. Housework done, dog walked. Now only extensively shower and cream and then we both nice cuddle together on the couch. Naaa well, my husband was now also still there.

So after the shower, the days of waiting and anticipation found your climax with a satisfying spray of this gift to the gods. My dear Kilian, this one is not from bad parents. Hot!

20:15
A glass of fine cognac meets a caramel praline with hazelnuts. The oak I perceive only very slightly (actually a pity), sandalwood I do not get at all, for that the other notes are too strong for me. Tonka, vanilla and cinnamon - everything there what the heart desires.

20:25
From now on, the cinnamon takes the lead, the others have times off. This goes on for about half an hour, since the really turns on.

21:00
The cinnamon calms down a bit and I can really enjoy the scent. It follows the classic game - nose - wrist / wrist - nose. Again and again, just beautiful. I rave and also my husband nods benevolently. He asks what the fragrance is called, where to get it, how much it costs. Aha, someone is really interested. During the commercial break, we keep checking the net. Offers, reviews, offers, YT movies, offers...

24:00
My show is over, but the scent still projects. Cognac, vanilla and tonka combine in drydown to form Rat Pak and do me the honors. In my head sounds Frank Sinatra and accompanies me gallantly to bed.

7:00 AM
Waking up, crumpled with my eyes closed I struggle out of bed. Oh, I had sooo sweet dreams and now already again the harsh reality in the mirror - In the middle of your face. Almost like remote control my wrist wanders to my nose. Nonsense, it can't be. But a touch of cognac and vanilla toka cream very close to the skin, delicate and beautiful.

18:30
Fragrance moves to the shopping cart.

Friday, a week later, the fragrance is delivered.
20:15 Showered, sprayed and ready for the next episode.

So from trial sniff to purchase, not 24 hours. More I do not have to say actually. Love at first smell.

The scent is very sweet-gourmand and boozy-smelly. You have to like that already. Especially cinnamon tones in between violently and projects neatly. The durability is really above average. Today I sprayed the fragrance times on my husband. He likes the very much on me but on himself he does not like it - is too sweet for him. On him the cognac came through even more and the oak barrel was fantastic too. I like the scent on him too. But so it is better for me - I do not have to share him (hihihi).

I don't need to say much about the bottle, very nice, glass on the bottom, plastic on top. Atomizer is ok - not as awesome as Penhaligon's. Umkarton also rather normal.

When do I wear it. A fragrance for the evening, go away, meet with friends in the favorite bar, go out to dinner. To just have fun, to make my husband happy and Tuesday he comes with me to the office. There the fragrance and the colleagues must now times through. Are only a few on site;-) Soon it will definitely be too warm for this fragrance. I would say as of today, a late autumn-winter fragrance.

So, then I can actually sign off Perfumo, holy grail is found, shock infatuated is a hook on it. Task fulfilled.

But nooo, is much too beautiful here and besides, woman needs several grails. One for the winter, spring, transition - one to the green jacket, etc. So you must unfortunately still read one or the other comment - or read over;-)

Hicks, your Donnagirl

For insatiable angels
The term Angels' Share, which means "Angel's Share" or "Gulp of Angels", originally comes from the field of whisky or also wine or cognac production and mystically describes the process of evaporation that occurs when the liquid more or less disappears during the long barrel maturation.

A beautiful name for a thoroughly successful eau de parfum that puts its accents on the gourmand side of the fragrance world.
Right from the first sip or impression, Angels' Share makes it clear that we are dealing with a full-bodied Kilian who wants to be perceived as very noble. From the bottle, derived from a stylish tumbler, I thought whisky would play a role, but it seems that cognac was the target. Not too bad, as long as it's spirit and plenty of it in an almost liqueur-like sweetness with a fat lump of cinnamon and a knife point of vanilla, aged in oak wood. Well, the wood part is rather drowning, but the mentioned ingredients are banging all the more.

This fragrance almost screams for exclusive (but not aloof) events such as opera evenings, ballet performances, vernissage and New Year's Eve balls as far as this is possible again without restrictions. For sweet noses and angelic creatures with taker quality almost a must, for teetotalers and others possibly an infernal olfactory signal.

With you began my love for Parfumo
I'm rarely speechless, actually, but you, dearest Angels Share, are just wow!
And again, I can't think of the right words, rating you properly is impossible. You are a masterpiece. With you my love for Parfumo has begun!

I signed up here about a month ago and the fever took hold of me immediately. I honestly don't even remember how I came across you, somehow I ended up (oops) with a bottling of yours in my mailbox. My best friend was on voice mail for my live first impression, it was my first bottling after all. Letter torn open and I have original immediately said: this is the best perfume I have ever smelled! You arrived with such a blast of cinnamon praline orange liqueur and then that mega vanilla too. Me. Was. Gobsmacked.

Then it was immediately clear, I need you as a flacon. So it happened and whenever I have you on it I feel like kissed by angels, my little Angel? I also do not care if it's over 30 degrees, I just wear you whenever I want. You are too great, for that you are only brought out in the winter, as with many others. What I can understand but still, you're just really a winter bomb.

Now again factually concluding: durability and sillage are really top, you smell him for days still on his clothes and even after showering!
The bottle is uniquely beautiful, which also makes almost worth the price. Yes, the is high, but with the overall package already in order.
Test him if you can, he will blow you away!

Small escapes
I need comfort, but so much
so much lost, so much not there
nothing is fair and nothing is good
but there are the little escapes,
Mini micro so small
in my darkness they
Maxi Macro
and get me through the day
He's there and he'll stay
always there for you
He puts his coat
around my shoulder
I snuggle up to him
and for a moment
i think :Everything will be alright!
Thank you Angels Share for
the little escapes
into a really beautiful world!

Brandy with a lot of cinnamon. Sweetness and tonka bean. It's a cozy scent but you can buy a bottle of Terre d'Évasion for €7,00.
