    I love Straight to Heaven but ended up getting rid of it after multiple negative reactions (only 1 spray) so I guess it doesn't work on me. I can't imagine how strong an extreme version would be. Now if they made a version with no patchouli and amped up the dried fruits/rum I'd probably get a flacon of it.

    I had same issue. Sampled it long ago when I was starting this hobby and my wife and sister in law hated it and found it over powering. Too boozy for them

    I'm never concerned with the word "EXTREME". 99 time out of 100 it's just a another take on the theme - never as extreme, or as strong as suggested.. I'll just sample it like anything else, and then decide if I like it or not.

    Yet you have Interlude Man that the name doesn't describe how way over the top EXTREME it is....

    FYI - Just got off the phone with Dan, the manager of the By Kilian Boutique in NYC and he told me they hope to have it by early next week and quantities will be limited. Cost will be $315

    Sorry, I didn't inquire about that.

    Spoke with the sales rep at Killian's boutique. They are supposed to get some limited supplies along with some of the dept. stores that carries the line such as saks 5th and neiman marcus; also limited quantity. I have sampled it, to me it seems like they have added a little more patchouli/chocolate like note and maybe some more rum. I get a little more powdery vibe than the original and it reminds me a bit of nasomatto's pardon minus the rum.

    It's now on the By Kilian website, along with a Good Girl Gone Bad Extreme. They talk about an "overdose of rum and vanilla". Same perfumer as the original, Sidonie Lancesseur.

    This has gone on my must-try list.

    And yes, the price is higher: $315 USD or €260 for 1.7 oz full presentation; refills not yet available.
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    March 2020 is the date I was told this will be back in the boutiques. Likely online too.

    Captain Fawcett Ricki Hall Booze 'n' Baccy is just as good and costs around US$60. Maybe it's better. A little hard to get in some places but quite good.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    $28 to ship the Booze & Baccy. Are you talking about free shipping for $150+ at Kilian or the barber supply place?

    Don't think I could find anything else at a barber supply site.

    One could intrepid it as encouragement to spend a few extra dollars on some additional item if they're slightly short below the $150 threshold.
