By Kilian Angels’ Share Eau de Parfum is wealthy, fruity cognac tempered by oak woodiness drenched in buttery sweetness and a touch of cinnamon spice. The opening gave me the impression spiced, caramel apple with a darker, boozy bent, and the sweetness tempered because the oak blended with the cognac. It’s a gourmand scent, by and thru.

The model listed the notes merely as “cognac, tonka bean, and oak wooden,” however in its longer description, it famous it opened with “cognac oil, upon a mix of oak absolute, cinnamon essence, and tonka bean absolute” with “long-lasting notes of sandalwood, praline, and vanilla,” which I’ve damaged down right into a be aware construction:

  • high notes: cognac
  • coronary heart notes: cinnamon, tonka bean, oak
  • base notes: praline, vanilla, sandalwood

It opened with a boozy, caramel spice scent that was wealthy in fruity sweetness. The cinnamon spice gave me the phantasm of my mother’s apple cake, which is drenched in liqueur and paired with spices like cinnamon, however the cognac’s fruitiness was deeper and broader than simply apple. It was actually cognac by and thru for the primary quarter-hour from utility earlier than the oak emerged, which tempered the sweetness by including extra nuance and depth to the perfume.

Angels’ Share felt prefer it actually warmed up on me over time, and it obtained spicier and woodsier over the subsequent hour of damage however nonetheless the cognac was the star. The drydown nonetheless had a fruity, barely boozy ingredient to it however was blended and smoothed out by buttery vanilla.

For testing, I had a 1ml dab vial pattern, which was utilized to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm utilizing half of the vial. I take advantage of an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as that is additionally my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered scent didn’t maintain nicely right here in any other case.  It was extraordinarily long-lasting (over 12 hours and was nonetheless detectable as a skin-scent) with heavier sillage and projection for the primary few hours; it was undoubtedly a scent that wafted up as I walked, even simply dabbed on my wrist.

Subjectively, I loved it fairly a bit, although I’m unsure it’s one thing I’d attain for and put on sufficient to justify buying a bottle of (I want there have been extra petite sizes out there instantly from manufacturers!). I believe I’ve a keenness for cinnamon-apple type of scents, even when Angels’ Share was fruitier and sweeter than simply apple, and it put me within the crispness of fall (nicely, my winter, I suppose, right here in Phoenix) with its heat, cozy, and gourmand scent. It does make me extra excited to strive Apple Brandy in some unspecified time in the future!

Whereas I are likely to favor a lot darker, woodier scents on the entire for perfume, I truly love gourmand scent for physique wash, owing to a protracted love for philosophy’s many food-inspired choices through the years. Quite a lot of that’s as a result of it creates a stunning, gourmand scent within the bathe however doesn’t linger in any respect, so it appears I’m, usually, happy by gourmand scents… in small, brief doses, and Angels’ Share has important sillage and projection in comparison with many perfumes I’ve tried in the previous couple of months.
