    Default Do It For Love by By Kilian

    I read about this on Now Smell This:

    French niche line By Kilian has launched Do It For Love, a new fragrance. Do It For Love was developed for the Noir shop that opened yesterday at Bergdorf Goodman (Vogue described Noir as "a virtual ode to black in shoppable form".)

    KILIAN and Linda Fargo, Women's Fashion Director at Bergdorf Goodman, introduce DO IT FOR LOVE, a new fragrance sealed with a kiss. DO IT FOR LOVE translates Linda Fargo's exuberant style and contagious charisma into an unusual blend: a vetiver au feminine, in which vetiver's bold energy is rounded off with a sensual, floral kiss.

    Rich in the highest concentration of vetiver ever achieved in the perfume industry, DO IT FOR LOVE's long-lasting accord blends vetiver, Linda's favorite base ingredient, neroli and jasmine to perfection. The fragrance opens with a fresh citrus declaration of bergamot and petitgrain, an essential oil from the bitter orange tree. Floral facets soften its heart, with neroli and orange blossom providing the perfect mood-lift like the bright Mediterranean sun. It is an irresistible crossing of strong and soft, masculine and feminine, bold and beautiful juxtapositions that are essential to timeless style.

    By Kilian Do It For Love is available at Bergdorf Goodman, $325 for 50 ml Eau de Parfum.
    Highest concentration of vetiver, eh? Hmmm...and that bottle...ugh.



    Anyone in NYC smell this at Bergdorf?

    That's definitely not true especially if you compare vintage bottles of some vintage vetiver based scents.

    The bottle looks rather tacky.

    Completely off topic, but I can't take the name seriously because it reminds me of the last slide of this...

    Agree.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Kilian tastes are becoming... I hope he won’t tattoo a kiss on his neck to promote this perfume.

    Not a fan of Kilian’s more recent naming convention. IMO it hit rock bottom with Voulez vous coucher avec moi.... A case of Kilian trying to pull a Tom Ford, with hilarious results.

    I’m curious about the lipstick finish on this one though. Angelo Pregoni could have used this bottle design for ODriu’s Basenotes Kiss My Ass. A missed opportunity, surely.

    Ha!

    Highest concentration of vetiver eh? Even top-quality aged vetiver isn't all that expensive.

    LOL. If the drawings were so suggestive like Etat Libre D'Orange ones, this Angelo Pregoni's bottle or box would be "hystoric".
    When I read this Kilian name I thought about Tom Ford immediately. The battle is getting harder.

    Any chance one of our local NYC Basenote friends will be heading to Barney's this weekend to sample this?

    I am wondering if it smells particularly masculine or not
