Since tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, I thought I would write about a scent on the most popular flower ont his day: the rose.
Killian’s ‘Roses on Ice’ sounded very interesting. It’s one of the two releases from their new collection called ‘The Liquors,’ and is said to emulate a gin drink. And roses? Intriguing, right? And cold? what makes it cold?
It turns out this is a roses and cucumber combo. Those are supposed to be the main notes, and I do smell them in the beginning. But my body chemistry is so weird, I also smell some stems, green leaves. It’s not unappealing, but not quite what I was expecting. Somehow this cucumber note gets more prominent as I wear it, and stays there towards the drydown. I do get that ‘gin’ note they are talking about, and it does not smell bad boozy. I thought I would smell like someone who had been drinking the night before, but this note is more pleasing.
It’s definitely a scent that evolves in your skin as you wear it, attesting to its multi-layeredness. I do quite like it, to be honest, as it is unique, but I probably need more sampling to be thoroughly convinced.
