    Default Kiton Men - thoughts?

    I blind bought this after watching Coachrob's review. Initially wasnt impressed, but have given it a few wears and it's definitely a grower. Smells slightly 'detergenty' but that aside it's really quite nice. It's not a frag I've seen much discussion on. Anybody own/like/dislike?

    Thanks

    I have a sample. It's a decent fragrance but nothing more IMO.

    Had this one for about a year. Nice frag. Can be worn year round. Wear this one with a suit and tie.

    It is a very nice but formal scent. I may have to revisit this in the near future.

    kinda casual/green. you don't need a suit and tie. rich but also unimpressive. price does not fit the scent..

    It's a solid fragrance and I enjoy the herbal aspects.

    Sampled both the original and Kiton Black. Both were just OK for me.

    Nothing special on my skin.

    Lots of violet. Too much for me, so I found it kind of annoying. A bit too sharp, a bit too green. For me.

    A very classy green fragrance. The mace makes it interesting.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    There used to be more discussion of this back several years ago. I had a bottle, but sold it as I found it to have similarities to GIT (except more floral) and a couple of others I don't recall. In the end, GIT was something I reached for more often. Likewise, Kiton Napoli in the blue bottle was reminiscent of Allure and Lalique Faune. Kiton Black was the only one I found unique enough to keep, but they're all well done scents.

    That's what you thought 8 years a go too, Renato. Pretty cool. I appreciate your consistency.

    Thanks, and there is an extra reason for this.
    One can be loud and brash, or relatively subtle and effective.
    Kiton was my secret weapon - resulting in marital bliss.

    This is the epitome, to me, of a fragrance I "kind of like." I could wear it and be happy, but it never ascended the ranks of the bottle-worthy.

    I always thought of it as a formal coat-and-tie scent, but I imagine that may be due to associating it with Kiton clothes.
    Current Top Ten:

    1. Creed Millesime Imperial
    2. Serge Lutens Chergui
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Creed Virgin Island Water
    5. Chanel Eau de Cologne
    6. Thierry Mugler Pure Havane
    7. Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme
    8. Bulgari Blu
    9. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    10. YSL Kouros
