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.

As far as I am concerned, this should be renamed "A Taste of Hell". It could be I just don't care much for lavender fragrances, but all I can say is I find this completely unwearable and sickeningly floral. Bad smelling and relatively high priced equals an easy thumbs down from me for this 1 star out of 5 abomination.
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.
A taste of disconcert and obviousness. I cant visualize this a as scent for men or women, not impress with the grandma dry, sour lavender and the amber accord without any deep or progression, very synthetic amber. Its almost like a beginners first perfume.
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.
A Taste of Heaven by By Kilian - Upon application, one is treated to an invigorating and herbal, lavender accord. The fresh and clean lavender commingles with the pungent, medicinal bitterness of wormwood. An aldehyde-like effervescence can be sensed as the accord percolates and drifts to the heart. Here, in the middle, florals infuse and transform the lavender. Orange blossom, with its fruity sweetness, a sweet rose, as well as bourbon geranium, with its flowery and sweetly green facets, usurp the lavender. The lavender takes on a more floral slant. A hint of saltiness flutters about. Segueing to the mellow base, the woody resins of amber interplay with the vanillic, nutty and somehwat spicy aspects of tonka bean. A more camphoraceous and slightly smoky lavender develops. A touch of powderiness presents. Plumes of foresty oakmoss as well as earthy patchouli appear here and there. A shower of bourbon vanilla imparts its woody and aromatic facets. The fascinating blending of the foregoing leads to a resplendent drydown. This all-season, well-blended, and masculine composition can prove to be very versatile. Wonderfully, this somewhat classy scent has very good projection, a 2-foot scent cloud, and longevity, about 10 hours.
Chilly, green lavender at the beginning, transmuting into warmer lavender throughout, and a cozy amber warming it all. So, so lovely, yet so, so not me.
sampled this liek crazy and tried to like it...all i get is lavender and more lavender and a slightly acidic or vinergar like vibe...definate pass disapointing as I had high hopes for this one after reading up and seeing all the love/hype for it. Oh well...next...
One of the best gourmands that I have smelled yet. Very classy & elegant. To those complaining about the price, you can just get the 1 oz travel refill bottles for $70 and decant it into a glass atomizer.
The notes of this perfume brag at least three kinds of lavender, some specifically identified as green, so one would expect a strongly herbal perfume, dry or fougere. Not so! This fragrance has a strong amber or tonka base that makes it smell almost as sweet as a marshmallow! If most lavenders are too soapy and sneezy for you, try this. You will be pleasantly surprised.
