    It's no secret that I'm a big fan of the Kilian line. Straight to Heaven is my all-time favorite, Back to Black cuts through the winter like no other fragrance... heck, even though it doesn't get much love here, I'm a big fan of Flower of Immortality (the peach does it for me).

    That said, Smoke for the Soul sounds incredible. Heck, all three of these sound incredible. (Of course, like everything this house has done, the packaging is amazing - which is important for an ad man like me.) I will definitely have to sample all of them when I get the chance...

    Well, I do love Montecristo cigars, so Light My Fire sounds particularly interesting. The listed cumin is worrisome though...

    I sampled all three (lab samples) in NY at Bergdorf Goodman and all will be worth sampling on the skin when released. Smoke for the Soul is the one I really want to revisit first. It has a very strong marijuana note...something I would not want to wear to work. I don't want to be drug tested.

    My impression of the house just went straight downhill. I find these names and the whole concept to be disgusting. I'd been contemplating an oud purchase from Kilian but upon reading this, that's never gonna happen.

    By Kilian is one of my favorite houses, but lately I've been let down with the projection & longevity of their fragrances. Namely, Vodka on the Rocks, Musk Oud, and Sacred Wood. Really nice smelling, but they seem to turn to skin scents after a few hours. Will definitely sample out this new line.

    By Killian is one of those few houses that I was never interested in. I dont know what it is, but everything I tried from them just never clicked with me. And besides, like Wheatstraw said, their conceptual image is highly pretentious and immature (imo). And the prices? Well, their prices are taking my disposition to a whole different level

    I am going to continue overlooking this house completely... Next!

    I just picked up samples of these three and as soon as I got home I sprayed a single spray of Smoke for the Soul on my wrist. Having read the notes, I wasn't expecting to actually smell cannabis, but immediately the opening was like a rich, fresh Baggie of strong Dutch weed, but unlike any strain I may or may not have smoked in my youth, it comes across as fresher and more herbaceous, and even a slight mintiness perhaps from the eucalyptus. So far...thumbs up, but not sure i want to smell this way personally.

    I agree! But I think I do want to smell like this...just not at work. This is likely to be my first By Kilion.

    Sounds like you'll love it. A few hours in and that single small spray has quiet ended down on me, but hasn't really developed much, but is still convincing I can see its appeal, but for me, not FBW. I'll wear it to mess with some stoner friends.

    I haven't been a fan of recent Kilan releases although B2B is still one of my all time favs. This new direction though has caught my eye. Any comments or impressions from those with samples of Light my fire or intoxicated.

    Killian is good. My favorites from Killian are: Pure Oud, Straight to Heaven and Imperial Tea. These are exceptional. All three sound fantastic and I am a big fan of these perfumers as well. Intoxicated, Smoke for the Soul, Light My Fire all sound worth testing!

    Looks like Killian got a hold of some Tobacco & Cannabis oil.

Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."

    $200 plus cannabis scent-hhmmm-got me thinking-how would one explain to a police officer who will notice that scent emanating from you if you were to stopped for some illegal infraction?

    I just put up reviews of Smoke for the Soul and Intoxicated on my blog:

    Smoke for the soul:

    The opening of Smoke for the Soul can almost be read as a riff on the classic Cuir de Russie genre, the smoky scent of rectified birchtar being offset by a bright citrus accord that incorporates a fresh, methyl pamplemousse-type grapefruit synth.
    The old idea however, is given a novel twist through the addition of eucalyptus whose camphorous, herbal vapours infuse the scent and serve to introduce a sweet-n-spicy green heart with vetiverish tones. As the phenolic aspects begin to recede, Smoke for the Soul takes on a more familiar character of slightly damp peppery woods (Iso E Super, Cashmeran etc) and musks, with some vanillic / benzoic and ambery sweetness.
    The publicity for the scent mentions cannabis, but truly, it smells nothing like ganja. That said, it is one of the better releases from the house in recent times.


    Intoxicated:

    Intoxicated sees By Kilian create a heavily Mugler-inspired gourmand, featuring a familiar coffee/cocoa/ patchouli blend that’s sweetened with enough sugary Maltol and Ambrox-type woody-ambers to turn its wearer diabetic. This is overlaid with a citrus accord that starts fresh-metallic-ozonic-grapefruit before turning aldehydic-waxy-herbal-agrestic-bergamot. Smuggled amidst it all also seems to be a pinene-y resin which idea could have been developed further.
    Intoxicated is a bit like a conversation where both sides are talking yet neither is listening.
