Intoxicated fragrance notes

Reviews of Intoxicated

When smelling it from the cap, I thought it was a beautiful, powdery and feminine amber. But when spraying it, I got nice spices (pepper and cardamom) that quickly went into a fruity coffee (or fresh, dark cocoa of the fruity type). It's beautiful, but I don't think it would be classified as a feminine fragrance.

Nice coffee with a slight green background followed with a spicy accord. Slightly powdery. Not too much though. Reminds me a lot of Pure Malt with a spice kick. FBW IMO. 8/10

You know how they did those experiments where they put average wine in a fancy bottle and people rated its quality higher because they thought it was a finer, more expensive wine? That's sort of what's going on here.

This Kilian fragrance is a nice gourmand - but if you can say with a straight face that it stands out as far superior to A*Men Pure Coffee then I think you may be falling victim to the same forces as our friends in the wine experiment.

This is a softer Pure Coffee with maybe a bit of Pure Malt, so basically you're skipping to more of the dry-down phase with maybe a hint of nutmeg or cinnamon on top of coffee/chocolate/caramel notes.

If you've got the cash, I guess go 'head and give it to Mr. Hennessy. Or you could just buy Pure Coffee or Pure Malt and grab a nice bottle of wine with all the money you saved...

Comparing this to A*Men is a joke...Mugler smells so cheap compared to this stuff,which is beautiful and of much higher quality and without that filthy tar note ...just very well blended and just laughs at A*Men and dislike it even after smelling this stuff...

Yes, coffee and cinnamon are at the core of the opening blast, a somewhat boozy mix and quite intensive although never cloying or overwhelming. The coffee is sweetish, quite rich and bears characteristics of a mocha latte, made out of good Jamaican Arabica, soft, not harsh and with a distinct milk chocolate aroma added to it. This coffee impression is a touch richer and more long lasting than in L'Artisan's Navigateur, a benchmark coffee fragrance. Nicely done.

The drydown takes a slightly more herbal turn, with a slightly nutty undertone, and the coffee gradually weakens, so for the last third it increasingly develops into a cinnamon scent. A hint synthetic in this competent compared to cinnamon-related masterpieces like Creed's Ambre Cannelle, it is still done very well.

The perfomance is excellent with moderate sillage, excellent projection and ten hours of longevity on my skin.

As far as the comparison with Thierry Mugler goes, this By Kilian is less heavy, less syrupy and less overwhelming as Angel or A*Men, and By Kilan's coffee impression is less heavy, although interestingly, on my skin the actual coffee notes lasts longer than in TM's Pure Coffee. Intoxicated is less fat, less heavy, more elegant, and more refined, and hence more wearable as an afternoon or evening winter scent. Intoxicated lacks the supreme elegance and quality that some great and elegant gourmands display, like Escada's wonderful Casual Friday, but Intoxicated is well executed and well structured, albeit not very complex. A good gourmand to sampke for who find this gendre usually too heavy. 3.25/5.

By Kilian's Intoxicated had been well-received so I'd been eager to try it but upon first smell, the similarities to A*Men and some of its flankers (Malt, Coffee) are almost far too noteworthy to give it much merit for uniqueness. It smells great, and the coffee base gives it a slightly different finish from the patchouli/coffee combination that is present in the A*Men line. It's unoffensive, its booziness and coffee aspects not likely to be unappealing even to those who are not fans of either accords. It's well-rounded--the opening not too harsh, the base not too dull--a little evolution.

However, at several times the price of the A*Men fragrances ($50 for 270ml of Intoxicated vs. under $100 for 100ml of A*Mens), it's difficult to imagine why anyone would contemplate buying this over one of those. Intoxicated is not particularly stronger in projection or longevity, nor does it ring more sophisticated. It's a great scent but would its prospects are limited in a world in which the A*Men line already exists.
