    Smoky woody citrus. Sounds interesting. Looks like a new direction for D&G.

    Please post your thoughts as soon as you can.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    Maybe, but looking at the bottle, I wonder if they might have been on K, when they thought of it.

    still the notes look a bit more interesting, at least. love a bit of noble cedarwood

    It seems K means King, though I'm not sure.

    I think the crown cap is kinda cheesy, but I actually like cheesy, so this might be a fun scent.

    Someone on this forum actually saw this in a store already I believe, but there wasn't any information about it at that time. I remember they mentioned the crown shaped stopper. I'm looking forward to trying it. Looking at D&Gs fashion, they do cheesy rather well I think

    I have to admit that I really do like the bottle artwork and cap design. I'll definitely give it a sniff if I see it in the wild.

    citrus, aromatic, cedar -- not exactly groundbreaking

    could be the bottle has had more thought put into it than the fragrance

    we'll soon know

    Finally did a full wear of the K.
    Guys, that's an Aventus inspired frag, but not a clone!
    I do smell an Aventus type of pineapple with an overdose of ambroxan and a beachy figgy/sandalwood vibe. K is polished, happy, easy going fruity scent for the young crowd.
    The opening is sweet and quite tropical. The base is fresher, the pineapple here is juicy and mouthwatering. The dry down is the worst part being full of ambrox, cheap musks and some classy masculine molecules.


    The sillage is average. Strangely, the longevity is very good on my skin!

    The closest ones that come to mind are Villhelm Parfumerie Black Citrus and Atelier Cologne Musc Imperial. I don't think a guy who often wears Aventus will like this. But lf you like ambrox bombs like YSL Y you should try K.

    Thanks AntonPan, appreciate the update. The similarity with Aventus is a bit of a turn off, but I'll still give this a sniff when it finally makes it Down Under.

    if you can't make something new might as well make something derivative of aventus! thanks for the review and will definitely look to sample this one.

    I wish something new and exciting would be released and not a quick cash grab on another fragrances success, here’s to hoping that something exciting is on the way! I’m still open to trying it but, this copying something instead of making something completely new is annoying.

    IKR?! Preach!

    :fist bump: to AntonPan for bringing the preview! I'll check it out, but the approach by D&G here is hella underwhelming. Maybe my low expectations are opening me up for a pleasant surprise.

    Ooh interesting. Looking forward to sampling it but doubt if it will floor me. I quite like the crown if it’s metallic. But IMO they chose the wrong typeface for the ‘K’. It’s too plain & blocky; just doesn’t seem to sit well with the crown nor with the bottom D&G. OK I’m probably nitpicking here but can’t help this aspect of mine: it drove my interior designer crazy because I could visually spot even a 2 mm misalignment.

    Excellent review OP. Thanks for taking the time to introduce us to this one. I’ll be looking forward to getting my nose on it, and am glad it’s not an out and out clone.

    The bottle looks cool but the notes looks blah. Still, though, I'm sure it will smell pretty good. Just a little boring. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    Don't really like the aesthetic of it. Feels too 'young' and urban, like trying to be hip and stuff. Meh.

    Is that the fragrance equivalent of falling into a K-hole?

    Smelled this the other day. Actually kinda liked it. Blotter longevity was days of norlimanol, which is somewhat worrysome, but not really ambroxy. I will be trying it again on skin this time soonish.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    The branding looks like something that would've been on K Mart bed sheets.

    To me, smells very similar to American Crew Nine.
