    Default By Kilian launces The Art of Love-series - four new fragrances

    By Kilian will launch four fragrances exclusive to Russia, to be released on Valentine's Day. It's unclear if all four will be released then or just the first one.



    Killing Me Softly
    Notes of blackcurrant, lychee, buchu leaf, rose, hawthorn, heliotrope, iris and vanilla


    Dangerously in Love: an androgynous rose


    Kisses Don't Lie: a rose fragrance


    Criminal of Love: no notes released yet


    Beautiful bottle, and this is what By Kilian says on Facebook:
    "The bottle is a modern interpretation of a FABERGE egg... and like Mr Fabergé before me,
    a surprise has been hidden in every product. But for that, you will have to wait the official launch date: Valentine's Day 2014!!!"

    Follow the money, i.e. Russia

    All for women by the look of it

    The bottle looks very nice. Seems like a few companies (MFK, and now Kilian) are creating scents especially for the Russian market.

    More cheesy names, horrible. Makes me not even wanna sniff their stuff that I haven't yet. The bottle is nice though.

    I wonder is the names sound better when said in Russian. Can one of our Russian-speaking members give it a try?

    Why would they pay over retail, I wonder? Their stuff is über sweet. I guess Russia can't get enough.

    I wonder if they know the song Phoebe Snow made famous- Killing me Softly.

    The monikers are partially pretentious & partially silly.

    Going to guess that they do.

    I'm going to guess that kinky and edgy is the thing they're going for. The names are probably just as odd in Russian.

    I wonder if they know the song- Killing Me Softly, In Russia.

    I really like a lot of what this house has to offer, so I would really like to give these a try. If that will be possible.

    The names sound rather like something Beyonce would release.

    Yes, By Kilian names and marketing copy are kinky almost to the point of parody. I love their scents and wish I had access to these new ones.

    That bottle has everything going for it; a crystal prism to magnify the light and spoil the juice. If you are the least bit unlucky and wave your hand over that tall top - over she goes, smash! An over priced bauble- ruined.

    I've met Kilian a few times, and he likes his music, so I'm sure it has something to do with the song.

    I think the new releases look great, but I'm more intrigued by the perfumers behind the fragrances. 4 rose scents, but I expect them to be all quite different and for them to conjour different emotions. Love the kinky gifts that come with them too. That lace mask is a lovely touch.

    I'm more excited by Vodka on the Rocks than these though. I've been enticed by that one since I heard about it last year. That should be released alongside these 4.

    I've had a chance to try Vodka on the Rocks. My initial reaction was that it was pretty nice and in some ways more interesting than Apple Brandy (which I tried more or less at the same time). Unfortunately I was swimming in various scents at that point so I can't totally trust my initial reaction. I do know when Vodka on the Rocks is released it'll be available for order from the website, aside from the Moscow boutique, and will be shipping out from NY.

    Since I'm in Moscow, I'm hoping to try these new releases; I just have to figure out where exactly they're available...

    Oh and yes, By Kilians are overpriced here, especially at their boutique. But if you know where to go, you can get them for more or less 'western' retail price, if not cheaper. So far the largest single purchase I've witnessed was around $1490, which included Tom Ford, Amouage, By Kilian, and a few others. Moscovites do like their fragrances.
