What Does L'Heure Verte Smell Like

L'Heure Verte by Kilian has a distinctive scent that begins on a rich and earthy note. The initial smell is dictated by the pronounced presence of absinth, introducing a slightly bitter undertone, reminiscent of fresh-cut green leaves, for an energizing start. The perfume then evolves into its heart where a robust liquorice absolute note makes a strong statement. This middle note adds a deep sweetness, while a subtle hint of violet leaf adds a gentle freshness, keeping the fragrance from becoming overly dense or heavy. The base notes create a solid, comforting foundation. Vetiver imparts a musky, slightly smoky essence to the perfume, enriched by the earthy aroma of patchouli. The familiar warmth of sandalwood and a generic wood note give the base a grounded, comforting finish. The overall accord is intriguingly green and woody, with an undercurrent of sweetness, and a fresh undertone throughout the perfume's life. This makes L'Heure Verte a bold yet accessible fragrance for those who appreciate an aromatic journey into the natural world.

Review of L'Heure Verte

Kilian's L'Heure Verte makes its presence known with its distinctly spicy, green, and woody scent profile. This perfume is a bold choice for the adventurous, veering away from the usual floral or citrus-infused scents.

The initial wave of absinth offers a sharp yet enticing introduction, setting a strong stage for the blend of scents to follow. It's an unapologetic scent that is not for the timid. Although it is a unisex perfume, it naturally appeals more to men in its robustness and depth.

The perfume shines during the fall and winter seasons, where the bold scents can stand up to the crisp, cold air. It is ideal for evening or night out occasions, providing an interesting dimension to your personality when it matters the most. However, its strong character might overwhelm on a regular day or in a formal business setting.

The longevity of L'Heure Verte is commendable, staying strong for a considerable length of time. It trails behind you, leaving an intriguing sillage that is neither too strong nor too weak. Yet, it is worth noting that the value for money is a point of contention, coming across as steep when considering its appeal to a narrower audience.

L'Heure Verte by Kilian is a perfume that asks to be noticed. With its distinct blend of absinth, liquorice, and a woody base, it stirs up a scent that is both daring and provocative. This is a perfume that walks a fine line between tradition and rebellion, demanding a wearer who can carry its boldness with confidence.
