    Just got off the phone with the manager of the PdM boutique. Will be available for sale at the Parfum de Marly boutique in NYC the second week of September. They already have a tester on display.

    Also thanks for this information!

    I hope they will release it in Europe, too. But as long as it's not an exclusive edition (eg. for Selfridges or Harrods) I don't have to worry.

    Sounds excellent. I just hope they keep that tonka accord reeled in for the most part.

    Could you expand on why you feel that way? Is it as simple as not liking a heavy tonka accord or is there something more to it?

    No, I actually love tonka, when it's doled out in the right proportion. But I think it's become common to really rev the tonka up in the base to the point that it obscures other notes and becomes too big and sweet. A good example is Armani Code Profumo, which opens beautifully and has some interesting things going on at first, but it quickly descends into tonka overload (plus amber) and you're just left with this overly sweet, warm tonka blob. Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme is another one. It would be such a wonderful scent if it reeled in the tonka by even 25%. But as is, it's just too much tonka to bear, and after the initial half hour it totally obscures the mint and its other aromatic elements as well. Most of AHSEE is just a gigantic, lumbering sticky-heavy tonka mess...at least in my experience. It's unfortunate because it shows flashes of greatness in the beginning.

    Anyway, I like the note pyramid of Kalan. It looks promising. I just hope those notes appear and hang around for a while, and aren't obscured by a heavy-handed, disproportionate dose of tonka. Especially when paired up with amber, it's easy to overdo it.

    Fruity notes with Roasted Tonka, hmm. Never would have predicted the Baccarat Rouge comparisons

    E aka Simply Put Scents has written on Fragrantica, that he's already sniffed it.

    "to my nose it smells like a more masculine, rugged and darker version of Baccarat Rouge 540. I prefer this to Baccarat Rouge as a guy because it's not as pretty as BR and I prefer to wear scents that are beautiful but not pretty if that makes any sense."

    That's really interesting and maybe it explains the red color of the bottle.

    They have a tester out at the PdM boutique in NYC so anyone who lives in the area and is a fragrance aficionado for the house can easily test it out and report their findings.

    I would love to, unfortunately I'm over here in Europe so I'll have to wait.
    But will post my findings here, when I tried it.

    A more masculine BR540 clone is really something that market needs. Waiting for other reviews

    Couldn't agree more with your post. Both of them are messy tonka overload. I like how Allure Extreme starts as well but it's ruined by heavy tonka later. But when used as a supporting note, tonka can be really nice.
    Heavy use of tonka in perfumes is why many people started hating that note.

    On the German Parfumo forum, some guys have tried it - got their bottles from Selfridges and made up sharings.

    The ratings of the scent are ok so far but it seems that no one is really wowed.
    Some see similarities to BR540, some don't - however it's not a clone.

    https://www.parfumo.de/Parfums/Parfums_de_Marly/kalan

    After reading all that, I'm not sure, if I'm interested anymore to buy a 5ml sample.

    I will try it for sure at some point but only if I could get my hands on a real small sample.
    Don't need many mls of a juice that probably isn't my taste.

    I just checked the Selfridges site and it's not listed. Strange.

    Selfridges definitely have it. I saw it there on Saturday. There is a link on the website but it says "out of stock".
