The Scoop

Hors La Monde describe Shiloh as the treasure brought home after years of traveling, and we agree. There is a subtle piquancy in this scent that makes us think of exotic spices brought by the cargo ships from faraway lands. The citrusy-fresh, slightly herbal top notes conceal the languorous, warm heart and the base that is unexpectedly deep, dark and mysterious. The tangy and candied feel of lemon and bergamot pave the way for the ripe sweetness of roses underscored by velvety woods. The contrast of the fresh beginning and the rich, woody and honeyed middle stage is incredibly attractive. The base notes, with their captivating blend of patchouli, sandalwood, oakmoss and incense enriched and softened by musk and vanilla, are enveloping, luxurious, wonderfully nocturnal. Fragile and powerful, refined and delightfully untamed, Shiloh is an exciting new gem of a perfume.

Here's what other people are saying about Shiloh...
ok so this is weird. i bought a bottle of this because my cat and dogs LOVE it - they lick it off my arms... or at least try to. a very dry herbacious frag, lavender, clean-smelling. good for spring and summer. unisex. and apparently, loved by animals of all species...

Wanted to love it based on the description but on my skin it smells sharp, acidic, and with a hint of stale spice. I don't find it sophisticated at all; maybe it is different on others' skins.

Only Michel Roudnitska could have created such a sensual, evocative fragrance and make it wear like a skin scent! Shiloh is warm and multifaceted like Amoureuse (by Roudnitska), woodsy like the dreamy Bois de Paradis (also by Roudnitska), with a lovely spiciness like the vivid Noir Epices (Roudnitska). It's a refined and gentle fragrance, that smells like dusk in autumn. Shiloh isn't dramatic or bold, and I think it may be one of those scents that simply has to "work with one's chemistry", but it does work with mine, and I love it.

This is a beautiful and elegant green chypre to my nose. Lovely, but not unique.

I got a sample of this simply because of the mixed reviews. It's either loved or hated. Personally, I don't care for it. It's very powdery on me and thankfully, vanished almost in an instant. There is only a slight lemon and none of sharp herbs and woods others have experienced. There is a warmth to it though that may attract those who wish to smell like a classy grandmother. My money will be spent on Keiko Mecheri's Scarlett.

Completely agree with the last reviewer. This smells cheap and unpleasant. It hangs on though--took three washes to get it off my arm!

This scent is not worth the money I paid for it. I could find the same scent at a cheap drug store back in America.

You know, this stuff is actually very interesting. The peppery scent dries down into an interesting powdery undertone. It is very strong and not for the faint hearted. The name is really reflective of the scent. I probably would not buy this scent for the price. I would want something a bit more developed and less out there, if you know what I mean.

Poof. Gone just like that.

Scent is such a funny thing. This is a fascinating perfume, but on me it is never candied, never lemony. It is sharp, herbal, has the smell of bark and roots, rather than woody. There is an incense in it, but it is not holy, it is simply smoky and mysterious. Chypre and adlehydes predominate.

~WoW~...that about sums it up for Shiloh! Whoever wrote the description must be a scent-twin of mine! This opened with a candied lemon/bergamote that was perfect then slowly transitioned into a bit of powder...rose?.... and then spicy woods. At least I know what I'll be buying next. If you're a fan of Michel Roudnitska and his creations...this is a MUST to try! the bottle too!
