    After a promising start, the lavendar notes leave disappear very quickly. What's left behind is vanilla that reminds me of a Body Shop perfume a girlfriend used to wear in the early 90's. For the price, I was expecting a whole lot more.

    This is quite a nice scent, unfortunately with a steep price. The only By Killian I have tried, to date, and a sure winner to me. It is definitley very similar to Caron's Pour Un Homme, but much smoother. Lavender and vanilla are the key notes here. I get a tonka dry down, instead of that nasty cheap mossy musky one from Caron's. Too bad this has to cost so much!

    Comes on as a green lavender – bright and sappy, stalks just snapped from the bush. A suggestion of buttoned up floral notes and powder takes this straight into traditional ‘man cologne’ territory. What with that and the aromatherapy associations of lavender, this is not my idea of heaven, but in its field it is a solid entry. The wormwood in the heart is the main twist, musty, almost sour and off – I wish more had been made of it, as it blends back in the mix a bit too soon and one is left with a somewhat soapy lavender.

    As much as I want to like A Taste Of Heaven, it just doesn't quite work for me.

    At its core, it's a fairly simple old-school fougere like Pour Un Homme or even a cleaned-up Jicky, a study in what happens when lavender meets tonka. On top of this, they put in an interesting absinthe note, which is ALMOST brilliant. It's an intriguing mix, with the intoxicating green woods filling in the space between the brightness of the lavender and the vaguely animalic hay of the tonka like a very 21st century "niche" element grafittied onto a 1920's framework. I want to love this, but it always ends up going sour and "off", highlighting the unpleasant characteristics of the individual notes instead of combining into something wonderful.

    A Taste of Heaven opens up with amber, lavender and wormwood. The lavender slow subdues at which time you can start to detect the more floral orange blossom. Very good, high quality unisex scent. Best for fall/winter. Classy.

    Those are not my type of fragrances, classy yes, but too much faint, yummy and untemperamental. Frankly this one smells really really similar to Pour Un Homme Caron, just is a lighter and less woody-vanillic version. I prefer A Taste of Heaven that is to me lovely  green orange blossoms with the minty (kind of chilly) initial effect from the duo Absinth-lavender that finally morph towards a well calibrated and barely  creamy base with a touch of tonka and patchouli. . In this phase the juice is soft, warm and ambery with a sort of cool-green, slightly powdery and orangy undertone.
