Not everyone agrees with me on this, but the word “bitch” shouldn’t be an insult. Like many women, I’ve chosen to reclaim this word. Kiss My Name is a bitch tuberose. It’s powerful. It’s not an object. It’s not here to be pretty and sexy even if we think she is. This in-control tuberose looks at other tuberoses and says, “Kiss my name”.
Ramon Monegal Kiss My Name opens with a peachy tuberose that is metallic and cool. This is a cold, aloof green tuberose. She’s not anti-social, she’s just holding out to get know you better. Give me one reason why she should be friendly towards you? With time, I get a buttery iris and other “green” slightly bitter white florals. Kiss My Name is a large, powerful fragrance and you can expect that with a metallic tuberose-jasmine fragrance. She’s the subject not the object. In fact, with more than two sprays, she is wearing you. Kiss My Name dries down to a softer version of the heart.
Most tuberoses are bitchy. Or at least I’ve heard them described that way before. Kiss My Name doesn’t have a coconut/tropical quality (those are the most “friendly” of tuberoses). It’s a “green” tuberose but has more density than lets say Diptyque Do Son. Kiss My Name is a cold broad but she’s still nicer than Malle Carnal Flower. It takes someone confident and self-assured to wear a perfume like Kiss My Name.
Notes listed include Indian tuberose, iris cedre, Egyptian jasmine, neroli and tolu balsam.
Kiss My Name has above average projection and longevity. And it has great sillage too.
The 1.7 oz retails for $185 at Beautyhabit. Samples are also available for purchase.
