- I can't claim that I have tried and tested all tobacco fragrances, but through my humble experience as beast mode fragrance lover, not easily for me to like or to love any kind, even some hyped fragrances, I believe ( TOBACCO MANIAC ) deserves to be in the top ranks of tobacco scents.
- So charming, so attractive, well blended, long lasting and so elegant, so luxurious with high quality, lean dray tobacco in the dray down, I found this unique scent for my nose is wearable as unisex fragrance.
THREE THINGS I REALLY LOVE ABOUT THEODOROS KALOTINIS:
[1ST REALISTIC ]: is about their perfumes, I believe TK house is one of the most realistic perfumery houses, I believe if you need a perfume scent that make you feel: you are standing on a street at the front of a barbershop, a chocolate shop at the back and a small food truck in the corner, definitely they will make it for you, just name it.
[ 2ND PRICES & C.S ]: is about their official online retail, I’m one of these, who hardly avoid dealing with official retails, one of the reasons obviously is the high prices in the official online retails, but on TK official website, remarkably I found the prices are very reasonable and affordable prices with free shipping to your door no matter where you are in this world when your purchases reach 100 euros or higher, another reason is my bad experience that I have previously with some C.S official retails, but the customer service on TK, I found them very cooperative and so kind, I have doubts that “Theodoros” himself is the one behind the feedbacks that I get by emails.
[3RD NO ANOSMIA ]: which no one talk about it that much, when we sometimes got anosmia for specific fragrance scents, especially after multiple wearing, but I didn’t have any issues with TK fragrance.
● I believe TK house is a hidden gem, that just started their perfumes lines, maybe one day, their creativity will inspire and invade the whole world.
MY RANK LIST AND MUST HAVE FROM THEODOROS KALOTINIS:
[personal experience about 8 fragrances that I’ve bought & sampled]
1- ( TOBACCO MANIAC ) - (I have 50 ml / 75 euros) uniqueness (10/10) fragrance lover in general, if you love beast mode fragrances or tobacco scents my recommendation is (must have & blind buy), this beast mode is one of my favorites in my collection.
2- (Coffee Addict) - (I have 50 ml / 31.50 euros) uniqueness (10/10) for fragrance lover in general or if you like coffee scent, my recommendation is (must have & blind buy), I believe it’s the best coffee fragrance in the world, this the most realistic, yummy, delicious and long lasting coffee fragrance, it will literally attract many things to your body (I mean it on good way about how realistic it is) the most review that support my opinion, came from a coffee fragrance lover who has a long journey with coffee scents when he spoke that this perfume is the best coffee perfume in the world.
3- (Alluring Fig) - (I have 3 ml sample / 5 euros) uniqueness (10/10) my recommendation is (must have & blind buy), oh my GOD what a great charming scent, Like a bird hiding in a nest among the thick leaves of a tree or as if you were hugging with your arms the branches of trees, personally I find it indescribable, I can’t imagine that anyone would hate this unique scent, I know it’s fig fragrance but I bet that lovers of tea fragrances will fall in love with this fragrance, I really regretted not buying the 50 ml bottle, I believe I will do in the soon future.
4- (Santal Wood) - (I have 3 ml sample / 5 euros) uniqueness (10/10) my recommendation is (at least must try & test), the uniqueness here doesn’t mean a crowd pleaser, I can consider this one as (artistic) and a lilt bit (daring to wear) zone, that’s need confident expressive personality (not for the faint-hearted) I believe it can be shapeshifter as mysterious and seriously personality, for me personally I like it, surprisingly I’ve found YT reviewer spoken, that one day, she was wearing this fragrance at workplace and got a compliment from her female workmate that she never comment on what she is wearing for 20 years, this kind of reviews convinced me, this fragrance will make you for sure noticeable by others, no matter who they are.
5- (Mentor) - (I have 3 ml sample / 5 euros) uniqueness (8/10) my recommendation is (at least must try & test), slight amber with hint of powdery touches, well balanced, leans towards the clean vibe, for me: more male side, the versatility here is the winner, I realize there’s no powdery note among the official notes, I think it’s the combination of vanilla note with vetiver note might be the reason why I’m picking the powdery touches, I think the people who like (Dior Homme) flankers, might like or love this one, don’t get me wrong, there’s no similarity between (Mentor) & (Dior Homme) but I believe somehow they meet in common things, this’s my honest opinion and how do I felt when smell it from the opening, still good choice, as versatile one because the sillage & longevity are moderated, good one for the go.
6- (Leather Iris) - (I have 3 ml sample / 5 euros) uniqueness (7/10) my recommendation is (at least must try & test), my personal rating here is 7 for uniqueness doesn’t mean this one is bad, not at all, but I believe it shares some similarity with other leather fragrances in the market, I believe it will get higher rank from the people who loves leather fragrances.
7- (Vanilla) - (I have 50 ml / 31.50 euros) uniqueness (6/10) if you love vanilla scents my recommendation is (blind buy & it’s not must have in my opinion because it’s shares some similarities with other fragrances in the market ), this’s pure Vanilla scent from the opening to the dray down, leans more towards a creamy desert (bakery vibe), it’s EDT performance, I wish if this fragrance have more longevity and stronger performance, I believe it should be in 20 euros, otherwise still good for layering.
8- (Musky Rose) - (I have 3 ml sample / 5 euros) I really tried to like this fragrance, but I’m really sorry, I couldn’t find anything special about this one, maybe in future I will try it again, sorry guys, but it doesn’t mean is bad one, I really don’t have any feelings towards this one (I don’t like it but at the same time I don’t hate it)
● I HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL & JUST REMEMBER THE FRAGRANCE COMMUNITY IS GREAT COMMUNITY
