    Good Girl Gone Bad?

    That sounds like it is the name of some new Calvin Klein scent... no wait, not even a CK scent, maybe a Bebe scent or uh, a new scent by Rihanna or something.

    Forbidden Games sounds good. I always love apple and honey notes, and it's nice to see opoponax too. It looks like it will probably be very feminine though.

    What? Can't a single house have contemporary, modernist and provocative lines?

    Sadly they all seen a tad too fruity for my taste.

    Unfortunately they all sound overtly feminine and fruity.

    Lame names, plus, lol where is the 'good' scent? All are on the not so good side so-to-speak.

    Silly names. #2 notes seem ok but perhaps too fruity..idk.

    Apparently the line is marketed exclusively to women, and not as unisex.

    Seeing they are packaged in a clutch, I have a feeling you are 100% correct.

    On a side note, with the way lawsuits can fly around, I hope they received permission to use the name "In The Garden of Good and Evil" because there was a book and movie named exactly the same except with Midnight at the beginning.

    Isn't Kilian backed by some large company? I can't imagine the company lawyers would overlook that one.

    His family owns Hennessy Cognac, but do not know if they are part of this venture.

    As said, I hope they were smart enough to make sure everything is in order.
    I never assume when it comes to trademarks or copywrite's, no matter how large the company is. Ford in their infinite wisdom, never renewed their trademark for the GT-40 name for their supercar. When they decided to bring it back, they were unable to use the name because someone else registered it. They so aptly named the car Ford GT.

    l like the notes list for Good Girl Gone Bad, despite the name. "Toxic narcissus"? Hell yeah! The others look too fruity for me.

    Thanks for this, LupeX. l'm disappointed to hear that Good Girl Gone Bad is fruity. From the notes list, this seemed to be the only one of the three that wasn't fruity, & was therefore the most interesting to me. l will still sample it at some point though, despite the cringey name.

    I signed up for the Kilian email club a few weeks back but I've not even received an email acknowledgement. Is this normal? I'd hate to miss out on samples again!
