By Kilian In the City of Sin EDP Perfume Review

By Kilian In the City of Sin

By Kilian has been irking me this past year. The brand seems to have given up on having an artistic direction and have been very open about their target markets (Asian Tales). And now we have the In The Garden of Good and Evil Collection.

I like Benefit Maybe Baby because it’s so “out of character” for me. It’s this girly-girl, playful fruity-floral fragrance. The name is silly and it’s so weird that I like it.

Maybe Baby opens with a burst of fuzzy apricot and a tangy white ginger. The heart is a peachy-fresh white floral with greenery and bergamot. It eventually dries down to a floral musk.

 

The bottle is a strange shape (a.k.a. uncomfortable to hold)  and has stupid little sayings all over it that I guess are supposed… Continue reading | 1 Comment
