Thread: Kiehl's oil formulations
I just tried this one and it's a great musk. It's different from the EDT formulation as it doesn't have so much of all the other notes. I got too much patchouli from the EDT and it smelled like an incense stick on my skin but the oil is quite nice. This would be great for layering.
I also got the Pour Homme Essence which is spicy and woody, indescribably beautiful and with amazing longevity and sillage because of its oil form.
I got both. I was going to take a break from buying for awhile but you see...blah blah blah

I got the original musk oil today, haven't decide whether I like it or not yet. One thing I wonder about, what is the proper way to apply it? It's said to be an essential oil, and I've read you should never use essential oils on your skin due to the high concentration (it could cause everything from rashes to cancer). And how do you dose it? There's no pipette or anything to get a single drop of it. Putting a finger over the bottle and turning it upside down and then dab it would contaminate the oil and you'll get a huge overdose.
Along with other decanting supplies, I have accumulated quite a few pipettes. I dedicate a pipette to each of my splash bottles and Kiehl's Oil is no different. One medium drop (or two small ones) on each forearm is sufficient.

I have sampled a few more Kiehls now, and I must say I really like Coriander and Pour Homme. What are your favorites?
I really enjoy Pour Homme and Amber.

i am wondering tho if we could dillute the oil with alcohol or something because i really do prefer sprays...
I know i am stupid >_< but just a question
I just bought Pour Homme in roll-on bottle today . They also had Chinese Flowers which was lovely, but it might be a bit too feminine...
"Indescribably Beautiful" best describes Pour Homme Essence.
I also love and own Original Musk and Forest Rain EDTs which i think find very good, and great value.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....

The body wash is available in both Pour Homme and Coriander -- I have them and like them. I think the lotion makes a fine aftershave balm.

I have Kiehl's Gardenia which actually quite gorgeous and long lasting - much like Fracas but sweeter . It's a sell out in stores like Nordies apparently . Must try the Coriander oil .
Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
I've been curious about the Original Musk (and now the Coriander, mysticknot!), but is there a big difference b/w the EdT and the essenial oil, other than concentration?
I'm looking for something musky but spicy. Does this qualify? I've heard some say it's flowery, others say it smells a lot like Jovan's Musk For Men, a scent I can't stand.
