About this deal

The main difference is the colour of the bottle; for the Eau de Parfum, the blue is deeper to reflect the intensity of the juice inside. I would immediately reject this if I concentrated on the bergamot/vanilla notes that remind me of Versace Blue Jeans (a juice that now days makes me nauseous). I'm quite picky and generally don't go much for "blue" or "freshie" fragrances, but I don't really get why this one is getting so many dislikes. And anyone putting people down or claiming they’re wrong because of a difference of opinion is missing a great opportunity to understand someone else’s perspective. In a market where releases are screaming for your attention with obnoxious spice mixes and scalpel-sharp citruses, it takes courage to put out something as delicate as K, which requires you to take a moment to taste and enjoy the symphony of its flavours.

It's very sexy, fresh, masculine and projects well, it's very versatile and would work for any setting, signature worth too!

for some reason, i dont pick up the citrus in the opening - but that may be because i don't have much experience with citrus perfumes yet lol. Yes these ingredients are used commonly, and yes they can be overdosed in comfort but these are not the ingredients that you can easily pick-up in every fragrance they are used. Would be very curious to see an analysis of this fragrance actually, this note is not a "generic" one for sure.

I relized I was distracted by my expectations on how a "fig fragrance" or a blue fragrance should smell like, and I was missing on what turned out to be a very well balanced and delicate composition with a foody vibe to it. There’s nothing sophisticated or sexy about this, it has more of an element of fun and frivolity to it which is great for summer nights and casual wear. The heart is where I think K Eau de Parfum comes into its own – the addition of fig milk gives the composition a creaminess that feels sophisticated and comforting. The only one that comes near this to me is Banana Republic Vintage green, they are not the same just a little similar.A bit of a pungent/strong/alcohol-ish opening but once it settles onto the skin, it's a fantastic spicy, fruity and somewhat floral-ish creamy scent that is fresh and sexy at the same time. DEFY EDP with the leather is awesome, K EDP is awesome but heavy for heat, EDT perfect for anyone looking for an easy to wear, non-offensive and different. Almost impenetrable yet not quite opaque, the lacquered glass allows for an intimate glimpse at the scent it houses.
