Reviews of A Taste of Heaven

Strong Lavender. Where's the vanilla?

According to most reviewers this is a lavender/vanilla offering, despite neither of these notes being listed above. Even Turin refers to the classic Caron Pour Un Homme as a reference. This is nothing like that powdery masterpiece.

All I get is strong lavender, no development, just a linear lavender. Also no softness, no roundness, just lavender.

The lavender/vanilla combo goes all the way back to Jicky. This take on the notes is disappointingly boring.

Stick with Pour Un Homme for the best combo to date.

The elegantly boozy opening blast has absinthe as the core, a fairly light and bright absinthe that soon develops lavender undertones. On my skin this is quite different from the more traditional lavender fragrances, like the ones from Yardley or Creed's Scottish version. In this By Kilian the lavender is a lighter and slimmer contemporaneous variety and blends nicely with the absinthe.

The drydown continues into a light white floral interlude, to then develop a patchouli that remains in the foreground until the end. This is a medium-heavy somewhat earthy patchouli that is neither really dark nor really heavy, and this part is the least exciting phase in the development of this product.

The sillage is moderate, the projection good, and the longevity is over seven hours. A touch on the synthetic-unexciting side in the second half. This would be pleasant in autumn. 3/5

My third scent i smelled from this brand and only straight to heaven is decent so far,back to black is very nice in the opening but after that fades,the tobacco note comes in and do not like it at all,and this stuff i really hate,do not know what notes i dislike but i just cannot stand this stuff,a little like musc ravageur,a strong scent with lots of notes that are so strange and stinky to my nose.

absinthe is definently present in the opening of this frag,

allow it to dry down, and it becomes darker and deeper, with smoky woody accents, and rounded nicely.

pleasantly surprised by this, i love straight to heaven, and this was the obvious follow on for me, and theyre opposite poles.

It's always more difficult to rate a scent that just isn't in your prefered range, but even acknowledging that A Taste of Heaven is probably not for me, I find that it suffers in its simplicity in comparison to Caron Pour Un Homme, to which it is often favorably compared.

There's very little complexity to AToH. It starts off as big lavender, there really isn't much of a middle, and then the vanilla just comes on strong and stays there. For a long time. I'll admit that as vanillas go, this is a good one - there's a rich demarera sugar feel to it that makes it a little like a very high quality rum and raisin ice-cream.

I can detect absolutely no absinthe at all, and I'm a big fan of absinthe so that is disappointing.

If you like lavender and vanilla, you'll like this. If that isn't your thing, this is best avoided.

A beautiful smell of lavender and vanilla with wormwood. This scent is basically a remake of Caron's Pour Un Homme but done with top notch ingredients.

A very nice scent though very pricey.
