A Taste of Heaven fragrance notes

Reviews of A Taste of Heaven

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.

The opening is a bold, unexpectedly classic lavender-green note surrounded by a thin layer of vanilla and tonka and a dense, slightly dark heart of amber and evernyl (sorry, "oak moss" ...). A decently nice scent indeed, the green and lavender accord is nice and pleasant, and blends well with an unusual balsamic-medicinal accord I detected in many other Kilians' scent, which gives an almost decadent-urine touch to the composition. I don't get what it is due to exactly, but it is nice. A hint of spices and a lively floral note complete the pot-pourri. A pleasant, refined, nostalgic and overall light lavender-based fougère, although quite more delicate, restrained, flat and discreet than "real" old-school fougères (but that's common given nowadays' restrictions on components. and the tight budgets many niche houses decide to allocate for materials). To be honest if it's lavender what you are looking for, there are quite many better lavender fragrances out there, for a funny coincidence I was wearing Oxford & Cambridge when I eventually tested A taste of heaven, they are quite close, but Czech & Speake one is just something else – it's like those family pictures with dad and you as a kid "dressed like dad". No comparison in terms of depth, persistence, quality, elegance. Kilians' – as most of the rest of the line – tends more to a trendy, posh elegance. Cambridge is just pure, majestic, understated heritage elegance. Still, comparisons aside, A taste of heaven is a nice fragrance, and that peculiar ambery-balsamic-medicinal is a nice touch of "uniqueness".

People who say this is very similar to Caron pour un homme are not paying enough attention.

A Taste of Heaven has absinth on it's topnotes, adding an intriguing edge and making it noticeably different up from the start (even the lavender seems of a higher quality and lasts longer), and also has a good dose of oakmoss in it's basenotes, adding much more complexity, depth, and a woodier and darker feeling compared to the Caron, which feels overly simple, much sweeter and synthetic. While the Caron could be used as an usual everyday fragrance, AToH feels more appropriate for more formal events and evenings.

This is perfect in it's construction of a classic fougere-like fragrance, while still maintaning an appealing modern touch.
