Frederic Malle En Passant
By Kilian Smoke for the Soul is a unisex woody aromatic scent.
By Kilian launched their Addictive State of Mind collection in the fall of 2014 with three fragrances. Smoke for the Soul has notes of eucalyptus, grapefruit, cardamom, mate tea, tagete, thyme, tobacco and birch. Psychotropic tobacco, tea and woods after a bracing grapefruit and eucalyptus open. Surprising and addictive.
Kilian Hennessy launched By Kilian in 2007. Yup, the Cognac Hennessy, grandson to the founder of Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton Group, he followed his interest in scent, writing his thesis on the semantics of odors. After spending time with leading perfumers, he launched By Kilian with the Collection L'oeuvre Noire (Black Masterpiece) series. There are now 10 fragrances in that series. The over-the-top marketing copy drew a lot of criticism in the early part of his launch, but the gorgeous packaging - black lacquer boxes and black bottles - started to win us over, as did the artistry of the fragrances. Collection Arabian Nights was launched in 2009, Asian Tales in 2012, In the Garden of Good & Evil in 2012 and In the Addictive State of Mind in 2014.
Fragrantica: "Loud, skanky (in a good way) realistic cannabis note blends perfectly with the tea and eucalyptus notes...A good one to mix with other fragrances. I've mixed it with Back to Black and Good Girl Gone Bad..."
Fragrantica: "It is green, it is smoky, thyme, woody, with a touch of vetiver, it's bittersweet, smoky and fresh at the same time. "
