About Single Malt

Created exclusively for the Harrods Boutique, Single Malt is 'an homage to London and its most emblematic liquor: whisky.'

Reviews of Single Malt

Kilian is at it again with this one...boozy,sweet,and an odd note I cant put my finger on. I've only tried a few kilians of the ones I've tried none of them are really my taste. Another review said it well. Like walking around smelling like a drunk. It is somewhat complex but again its overly so.

Boozy and smokey opening. Later it's a boozy vanilla, but not as heavy on the vanilla as other popular vanilla-boozy combos.

Single Malt is an appropriate name as this really does have a prominent whiskey smell. It's also sweet enough to be considered a modern fragrance but this feels more refined and mature than a casual scent. Probably best for nighttime.

This projects decently and hangs around all day.

The opening few seconds really got me fooled. It smell as if I was holding an oak cork of an old bottle of brandy(not rum).

Don't burn your money yet. The boozy initial blast quickly transition to a dried-sugar preserved-fruity notes: the brandy travel upstream in time, converting back to its ingredients. At some point I can perceive a sweet-cocoa like herbal undertone.

That cloying sweetness persist for god knows how long, finally fades away.

I love boozy scents and this one according to Fragboy Stewie is very good and better then Pure Malt...well i think not.This stuff is just really bad,very pungent whiskey note still soaked in barrels...very strange and had to wash it off fast.

Single Malt by By Kilian accomplishes excellently the balance between sweet and boozy, evoking just enough syrupy, honeyish sweetness simultaneously with aspects of whiskey and scotch. I'm not even an aficionado of scotch or whiskey, but much like coffee before I drank it, I enjoy their aromas and notes, and they come through in Single Malt.

Projection is certainly strong for several hours in but beyond that it's not a beast all day / all night. It reminds me of Herod by Parfums de Marly in its pure sweetness most of all, actually, despite the notion that Herod is linked to tobacco and Single Malt is linked to booze; the type of sweetness strikes me as similar.

Single Malt is the only By Kilian I've given much consideration to buying, as I've usually found that their fragrances are more comparably done elsewhere (Intoxicated is replicated in the A*Men line, Back to Black is not quite as good as other sweet tobaccos like Herod or TV) but in this case, I find Single Malt unique enough to merit real consideration at its considerable ($295 for 50ml) price point. Peculiarly, it's an exclusive to the London boutique but seems available online all the same (unlike the Le Labo, Tom Ford exclusives).

ill add this to the Kilian "im trying to make some frags that smell like a drunk" list of slight failures.

i was hyped to try it, i love boozy notes, (rum and congnac are nice scents) but i got this, apple brandy and vodka on the rocks as samples, and dissapointment would be the nice words to use!

this opens with whiskey, and you get some whiskey notes, along with some whiskey, and then later a little whiskey.......

seriously smells like someone has spilled their glenfiddich on your shirt, granted its a NICE single malt, but id rather drink it than smell like it!!
