Kiss Me Tender fragrance notes

Reviews of Kiss Me Tender

I bought this blind when it first came out - I found the idea of a recreated Victorian fragrance SO intriguing. I was imagining a big, powerful, indolic white floral (the only kind of floral I like - SL A La Nuit is my favorite) and instead I got . . . Juicy Fruit gum. From beginning to end, Juicy Fruit gum. No drydown, no development, nothing. I keep giving it another shot, and assiduously sniffing for the notes mentioned by other reviewers, but it just really wants to smell like gum on me.

Candy. Specifically Willy Wonka Banana Runts. Total scrubber.

Kiss Me Tender by Nicolai Parfumeur Createur is a bit of a mystery to me. This ‘floral-oriental’ is very quiet with a musky quality—a timid, yet slightly salty musk. A year ago I realized that I have trouble smelling some musk molecules and I believe that the musk molecules in KMT are just barely flickering in and out of my perception. It is fascinating how the entire perfume seems to fade in and out; I can smell it and then I think maybe I can’t—oh, there it is again! When I do smell it, however, I get gorgeous orange blossom floating over a dense layer of spiced almond cookie dough. One of the note lists included fresh hay—and isn’t it funny how we can suddenly pick up notes when they are listed—but, yes this pretty, delicate fragrance not only smells of hay, it makes me wish that Chergui smelled like this instead of drying down to diaper bag. As time passes, KMT develops into a ‘my skin but better’ situation. Rrrrrrrrrr.

I am subjective when it comes to vanilla yilang woody trio combinatios:-) , that reminds me of Vanilia, by Lartisan

Sweet vanilla is almondy, and layered on a musky woody base, all smells simple and modern, ye half natural...the opening is amazing, spiced up by that high c note of orange flower....very appealing, it does get simpler but that almond taste makes it interesting weekend, leasure time scent

Currently my favorite scent, and out of the samples I've tried through "The Perfumed Court" the best heliotrope on my skin. I can wear this perfume throughout the month and not get a headache. Perfect.

Just tried this one today while at LuckyScent. It's lovely and smells a bit like a marzipan pastry. Despite the food-description and sweetness , it doesn't read like any other gourmand fragrances I can think of. Something balances out the food element. I can't put my finger on it yet, but it really is haunting. I suppose that the heliotropin is similar enough to almond that it rings some bells, but different enough that it doesn’t actually read as a confection. Even though as it dries down, the sweetness gets heavier, if you smelled this in a crowd, you'd definitely want to trace it to its source.
