Not rose but strawberry jam. Liaisons Dangereuses is a tastefully made fruity soliflore with peach in the opening and plum in the heart with the rose, emphasizing its inherent damascones. The leafy green notes shine through the whole thing.

Definitely fruity feel comes along with this, my first association was pear, now an apple?green smelly one?.....yes as if someone tried to make a fresh fruit perfume, later, when i got familiar with this perfume i could imagine some roses, fresh one, it smells unusual for a perfume, because smells very natural, very fresh, and sweet at the same time I find it very feminine, like one of the most unusual roses you have ever tried,spring time perfume, but its not very long lasting one, and i don't smell cinnamon in its usual form I like it because its very natural smelling
In "Perfumes - The Guide" Luca Turin describes Liaisons Dangereues as smelling like rose jam. I say a more confectionary rose. Anyway, the conbination of plum, rose, coconut and cinnamon smell absolutely delicious to me. While I have only a sample now, a larger bottle will be mine!
This scent opens up with peach to me and after 2 hours is a nice cinnamon fruit that only last 3-4 hours for me. Mybe will last longer in colder weather. I like its scent for what it is.
"The delicate and sweet sensuality of the plum mixed with the roses from damas." With that being said, Liaisons Dangereuses opens up with a very sweet plum not combined with a slight creaminess given by coconut which appears only for a few minutes and in a not so evident form like in Beyond Love. Trough time a lot of notes appears at the same time, that's for sure! Anyway, a good fragrance for those who enjoy sweet fragrances with cinammon that shows at the end, but not the right bang for your buck in my opinion.
Wow, this stuff is a total scrubber on me and overly feminine. This is just cloying from the get go and is an overly sweet and slightly floral fragrance. I cant describe much more than that as I was doing everything possible to not smell myself the entire time wearing. I dont even think Id like this one on a woman.
Why in the world does Kilian LIAISONS DANGEREUSES smell initially like a crisp floral green on my skin? Honestly, I am baffled. These are apparently the notes: coconut flesh, prune absolute, plum, black currant bud absolute, crystallised peach, cinnamon bark oil, ambrette seed absolute, Damascus rose, Bourbon geranium, Australian sandalwood oil, oakmoss extract, Javanese vetiver oil, clear woods and white musks. Somehow the above conspire in the opening to alchemically produce the olfactory illusion of hyacinth! Eventually a plummy quality comes through, but it is definitely not sweet--more like stewed compote with no sugar added. To my nose, the dominant floral is geranium (not rose) from start to finish, but this perfume always seems rather green to me, albeit much less so in the drydown, when it begins to smell more and more like a plum-rich analogue to YVRESSE. All in all, this is an interesting composition, which I may try again in the future, under different conditions of weather, mood, and planetary motion. ... Update: according to Aedes, coconut does not number among the notes, and I do not smell coconut, so perhaps the recipe has changed?
Liasons Dangereuses is all about flowery fruit. I realize there are some women's perfumes that can be worn by men (Shalimar comes to mind), but this isn't one; it's not unisex in the slightest, and borders on being cloying during its entire run. If you're an adventuresome guy, give it a try.
Quite sweet but has a bright quality which is attractive. Airy, a bit fruity like the gritty skin of pears. Also get the peaches which some have mentioned, in particular the fuzzy skin of peaches. Fruit skin seems to be the key here. Metallic and a bit nutty at times (almonds). Not at all my style. Not floral as far as I can tell. Seems too sunny and innocent to be a truly dangerous liaison.
Despite being termed unisex, I absolutely cannot imagine this on a man...it is entirely too sweet. I *almost* love it. I say almost because it is just a little bit too sweet, too cloying, too much of something I can't quite put my finger on. Heart notes blend together to smell like some kind of berry jam, but then the cinnamon kicks in and it's just not pleasant any more and my head starts to spin. After two or three hours, it's much more wearable and the dry-down is beautiful with a musky sandalwood, cinnamon, and just a trace of plum and rose. At this point it reminded me a little of Amouage's Lyric for women, which I adore. I really want to like this, but it just isn't well-balanced to my nose. If I hadn't only used a drop of it to test, I would suggest sampling again in a smaller dose...but I couldn't get much smaller than that. Oh well...guess that saves me about $225 USD! --------------------------------------- Update: Okay, I have officially eaten crow. I tried this sample again recently and fell in love with it. Maybe my chemistry was off that day or something, I don't know, but it sure works for me now! I dove in and bought a bottle... It's "lazily" sexy...imagine two lovers laying around nude with rumpled sheets, feeding plums and grapes to each other while sipping champagne. I'll also add that it smells more masculine on clothing and paper than on skin. It's much juicier and sweeter when applied directly to the skin. I was surprised to find that the lock and key in the packaging are fully functional...interesting, eh? I'll be able to lock it up and keep my step-daughter from using it... ;) Jan 19 2009
