This seductive unisex fragrance with dominant sweet woody rose finds its home around the balsamic notes of oud. By Kilian's Cruel Intentions is velvety smooth, inviting and provocative at the same time.
The opening is orange-lemony scents with bergamot quickly dissipating into a woody heart. Guaiac Wood, Papyrus, Agarwood (Oud) and Haitian vetiver bring sophisticated elegance and earthy mystery, while the entire scent dances around the base notes of warm golden styrax, castoreum, sandalwood, vetiver and musky notes.
A well-done rose and welcoming sweet vanilla throughout the dry-down keep a perfect balance while the fresh bergamot and woody vetiver notes die out relatively quickly.
