Reviews of Kiton Men

Had a buddy share a spritz of this with me recently, then placed an order online. It had a pretty quick impact and I canít wait for it to arrive.

Ermagerrrhhdd! This is seriously good. The pineapple is fresh and not overdone, the bergamot is gorgeous and well into the dry down this does get very reminiscent of Green Irish Tweed. Sillage and performance are both also great for what smells like a quite natural fragrance (to a fragrance noob).

Unlikely to be a cold weather scent, as it's just so lively and immediately reminds me of spring, but I can see it working in most scenarios. Definitely a safe choice for the office. Canít wait for my bottles to arrive. Emphatic thumbs up.

Edit: Bottles arrived, still very happy with the purchase. I notice the florals a touch more in the heart, but not in a bad way.

Given the price of this fragrance, itís also very hard not to recommend. Yes, itís not as well rounded or as sound as Fahrenheit or GIT... but itís also 1/6 or less the price of GIT and well under half the price of Fahrenheit. And it comes in a 125 mL bottle vs 100. Kind of hard not to love.

From December, 2015:

Combine Green Irish Tweed with Fahrenheit and add a pineapple note to it and you may have something along the lines of Kiton Men. And I mean that as a compliment! This is a fantastic fragrance that seems to always fly *just* below the radar. While it generally receives high marks and praise from enthusiasts and those who just happen to be familiar with it, Kiton has never made a big splash in the fragrance community. Why it hasn't is beyond me. This is such a smooth, classy, and timeless fragrance, almost in a genre all its own a la Fahrenheit or Egoiste, and it is extremely versatile as far as age, season and occasion. Very easy to wear, Kiton Men opens with a sort of fruity pineapple note set to the backdrop of a petroleum accord similar to the Dior classic, though not as overpowering and intense. It creates a sort of contrast of light and dark, sweet and industrial. Still, its freshness tends to dominate and creates a kind of crisp, unique aroma, different, yet composed and sharp enough to possess the rare quality of a signature scent. As it develops Kiton loses some of its pineapple edge (though it never really fades completely) and becomes more of a powdery musky violet, with just a touch of sweet warmth holding it all together. Its dry down is very reminiscent of Creed's Millesime base, particularly as its found in Green Irish Tweed, though i almost want to say that Kiton does it even better. Something about the tenacity of the powdery tonka-laced musk really takes it to the next level; while it's in the base and occurs during the drydown phase of the fragrance, it's quite hearty, making it more than just a skin scent and something you can really sink your teeth into. It feels even rounder than GIT's base and perhaps a little deeper. Projection is nice--not too strong but definitely noticeable. Longevity is 8 to 10 hours.

This is a definite thumbs up and worthy of a blind buy. Guys looking for a signature scent should absolutely check this out. As I mentioned earlier its quite unique without sacrificing any qualities that make it appealing to the masses as well. Furthermore ,it's super-versatile and sold at a reasonable price.

Side Note: One reason why I stayed away from Kiton Men for so long was the inconsistency of the reviews. Some say it's fresh and sporty, others dark and serious. A few reviewers believe this is a 'suit and tie' type of fragrance while one mentions wearing it around the supermarket. Some focus on the pineapple, others on the petroleum. It's TRUE--Kiton is all of these things and none of them! It needs to be worn to be understood. It's one of those rare fragrances that really sits in a dimension all its own, kind of like Fahrenheit, Kouros, A*Men, Dior Homme, Habit Rouge, etc. But where it differs from theses other fragrances is that it's a SAFE SCENT. Guys, don't be afraid to buy this blindly if you can't sample it. You're more than likely to enjoy it, and at the very worst you might just find it a little boring. But if you're on the fence at all about it, and have been thinking about getting a bottle, I'm telling you...just do it! You can blame me if it doesn't work out for you. ;)

The other reason I avoided this--I'm embarrassed to admit--was because of the kind of ugly, bland bottle. Kiton Men could seriously do with a bottle upgrade (I mean come on, look at it). But trust me--the bottle doesn't do this great fragrance justice, so don't worry about it.

Classy, mature and refreshing. An uplifting and confidence-boosting scent that is sometimes overlooked, although CoachRob on youtube loves to talk it up and remind us how good it is.

Sometimes it reminds me of GIT, but it can also turn into Fahrenheit at times. I love both of those so this is a treat either way it goes.

Projects very well for the first couple hours and then after that, sits close to your skin. Longevity isn't the best.

Wow, love Kiton Men! It has a bare resemblance to Fahrenheit, but it has more spicy and wood elements in it. Definitely sense some bergamot in this one, a favorite note of mine. Seems to be available at both steep and low prices - either way, a great experience.

This is indeed a great underrated fragrance,but it has been reformulated...a bit worse in performance then original.It's more like GIT and fades away sooner then before so still a great scent but original was a little better...

Bergamot, violet and cedar perfection. 5 out of 5 stars.
