Abbreviated perfume & fragrance reviews from one man's perspective

Sweet Redemption by By Kilian

Leave a comment

One of the great things about buying cologne is that usually receive samples along with your purchase.  In December I was in NY and stopped at MiN New York in Soho (love the store, but that’s another story).  I received a few samples, a couple of them were from Kilian.  Today I thought I would try out one of the samples, Sweet Redemption.  This apparently is part of the Kilian L’Oeurvre Noire collection.  One word: Ugggggh!  This is labeled as a unisex perfume, but it definitely leans toward the feminine side.  So how do I describe this perfume???  I keep coming back to the thought that this reminds me of what a Pier One store used to smell like in the 1970s!  It smells of sweet incense and oils.  It is what I would consider to be a “hippy chick” kind of perfume.  Bottom line, it’s not for me.

I looked at the Kilian website and I couldn’t find an official overview, but I did find the following at the Lucky Scent website (another great store and website):
