Of all the powerful sensations a perfume can evoke, the feeling of falling headfirst into love has got to be one of the most moving. After all, is there really anything better in this life than true love? Whether you're falling fast for someone new, reveling in the romance of your longtime flame, or recognizing that the greatest love you can have is for yourself, there's nothing more beautiful — and Kilian's new Rolling in Love fragrance has bottled that overwhelming sensation in one surprisingly simple scent.
In a twist you might not have anticipated (especially from a brand that's known for its intricately layered perfumes), Kilian's latest launch strips the idea of a romantic scent down to bare necessities and focuses on the singular, all-encompassing feeling of love. It actually makes sense once you mull it over; love is about letting your guard down and getting lost in the moment, and in it's truest form it doesn't require a whole bunch of frills or fancy distractions. The experience is exhilarating yet comforting, unexpected yet divinely designed, and above all else it's decidedly addictive.
Kilian sought to conjure up that exact feeling with Rolling in Love, now available for $240 at Sephora, and the result is one of the brand's most romantic fragrances yet.
The "white" scent opens with notes of ambrette seeds and almond milk accord, which are soft, clean, and subtly musky to suggest the feeling of skin touching skin. Then, Rolling in Love's heart explodes with passionate floral notes of iris and freesia before the fragrance finishes with a comforting and romantic base of musk, vanilla, tonka bean and tuberose absolute.
As the scent unfolds, all the layers mingle together to create a cohesive aroma that's uncomplicated and easy to cozy up in — the brand calls it "almost monochromatic" in its extremely focused nature. To exemplify the fragrance's unadulterated passion from first sight it's housed in a bold red flacon, a brand new color scheme for the Narcotics line that Rolling in Love now joins. Golden accents give it a glamorous vibe, practically ensuring it'll look enticing on your vanity.
