    Default Kiehl's Forest Rain

    Kiehl's jsut came out with a new fragrance. From what I'm told, not all the Kiehl's stores have it in stock at the moment. But its a good one!

    Its a fresh scent, but itsn't heavy on citrus like most of the fresh scents. I smell Muguet and Vetiver mostly. Their trademark musk does show up in the drydown, but its not a heavy musk and isn't sweet at all like the Original Musk.

    While its not too heavy on vetiver, its a must try for all lovers of vetiver (note: Jock_With_Scents).

    Druggy music (stone rock) from the late sixties and early seventies. There's Neo-psychedelia that came after too.

    exactly. i'm more into the modern psychedelia, although i have a distinct appreciation for neo-soul-psychedelia from the late 60s.....

    you can sort of understand 'the sound' more if you check out my band's myspace (i'm not trying to shamelessly promote or anything...just wanna help you understand! )

    - in utter shock

    This is a VERY VERY nice fragrance. My only complaint is that it's a tad too floral and girly but it has rich creamy woods that dy down so smooth and a slightly bitter herbal note that adds a nice edge to it so it's not too soft. I think I may buy this one it really impressed me.

    Cheers,
    Al

    As it dries down it becomes very similar to Casran by Chopard.

    Anyone who has the opportunity to go to an actual Kiehl's store should also test the Pour Homme Essence oil. Otherwise, I think it's a safe blind buy IMHO (would easliy have been for me, although I did smell it for 2 seconds before buying it! LOL). Do yourselves a favor and don't miss out on this gem.
    I brought it up in another thread but there were no responses. First of all, you use a streak not even a drop and you get clear-the-room projection (think Norma Kamali Incense). I wish I could describe the notes better but what I get is a thick orange/mandarin opening with sharp greens, then patchouli and lots of spicy notes in the middle--which includes guess what: INCENSE!; the drydown is a lot of incense and I think moss. That's the best I can do and there's no info on the notes on this. No musk that I can detect but layers wonderfully with Kiehl's musk (the oil) too.
    Longevity? You'll need to wash it off when you're done.
    I'm very excited about this. It's well worth the money. Anyone else with any experience with it?
