The Scoop

Composed within the 'temptations' theme, 'Sweet redemption, the end' is the last chapter of Kilian's olfactive odyssey. What if redemption was the ultimate temptation? The temptation to be redeemed after one has succumbed to the addictions of 'love and its prohibitions' and the 'artificial paradises', discovered previously in Kilian's universe.

With one last burst of desire, 'Sweet Redemption, the end' is a chance to surrender to the perfume of the 'L'Oeuvre Noire' and be seduced by its power. Inspired on one hand by Baudelaire's hommage to sweet and deep fragrances, yet on the other hand by the dark and mysterious poetry of Jim Morrison as he seemingly forebode his own demise. 'Sweet redemption, the end' is a final bow to these cursed poets, a final commentary on the irresistible charm of the forbidden fruit that tempts us throughout the 'L'Oeuvre Noire'.

This redemption, this liberation, becomes even more desired when we learn of its intensity... the innocence of orange blossom... the roughness of the sour orange leaf absolute... the sweetness of the vanilla absolute. The dry down is composed with a strong balsamic ] almost religious ] accord built around myrrh, incense and benzoin.

This combination is meant to remind us that redemption is not a choice, but rather, a reward...unless it becomes our last addiction?

Love Kilian perfumes in general (Back to Black, Liaison Dangerous) but this one rubs me the wrong way - not sure if it's the orange blossom or some kind of powdery scent but I had to scrub it off and that's unusual. I'm a fan, but I truly hate this one. My least favorite of the line.

Surprisingly, this has become my favorite winter scent. On me, it is complex, warm, not overwhelming and develops a different aspect every hour or so. It's long-lasting with a reasonable sillage. While not a fan of neroli scents, this one is so well blended that the scent is intriguing, sexy, and wonderful

I like this, which is a slight let-down because I expected to be blown away. I get the most orange of the orange blossom on the open, now after a few minutes it's turned super green, very fresh and crisp, almost astringent. Kind of like a just-snapped stem or cut grass. Faintly detecting vanilla, it's tempering how sharp the green-ness is. And the overall effect of the incense is a slight, transparent "smoke," not to say it's "smokey" at all. The overall effect is strange, but nice.

I Love this! I'm always on the search for a true orange blossom perfume with longevity...search is over..This is it! Its embraced with sweet vanilla and resins, like amber but its buttery opoponax. Its sweet, its longevity 8hrs plus and silage is strong.

Sweet Redemption takes me straight back to my childhood playing under the dusty orange trees in winter. More complex than the usual orange blossom. I love it but it's too expensive. I refuse to pay for killian hype.

Sadly this was very antiseptic smelling on me. Maybe due to my skin chemistry . Not for me

didn't think i'd like this sent and, on first smell, completely dismissed it - orange flowers not really my thing. But the thing with the By Kilian range is it's amazing complexity, how differently the fragrance smells on the skin, how much it changes throughout the day and it's great silage. I put this on and couldn't stop smelling it. I'm equally in love with Rose Oud - the whole line smells very rich and so well-considered. Perfect scent for daytime, very unique.

So I have to say that I really was very confused by this perfume. I wanted to like it, but there was something that smelled exactly like the formaldehyde the frogs we dissected in school were preserved in and I couldn't shake it everytime I caught of whiff of the perfume. I tried it on my daughter and it it had the same scent on her as well. Disappointed.

Smells like the Valentine's candy that has saying like "Be Mine" on it. It's close to the perfume called "Love" in the same line but with an almost menthol background note.

This smells like sweet vaseline, topped off with a bandaid.

This scent is driven largely by it's combination of orange blossom and vanilla. It began with a strong, almost sharp citrus orange, then slowly warmed into a sweet vanilla layer. It veered dangerously close to gourmand-creamsicle-land, but a very grown up bergamot saved it from being too childish. I don't sense much of the incense, or the other rich woods tones, but they are there. Over-all, this scent is delicious and sweet, but sophisticated and lovely also. One of, if not the, best orange blossom scents I've ever smelled.
