Wanna smell like a new car interior?

6019

since i was young, i’ve been fascinated by the ‘new car smell’.  i remember going car shopping with my parents and just sitting in those brand new weird 80s cars….getting high on the beautiful smell of leather, rubber, vinyl, plastics, and wood…..just a great smell.  The cars with leather seats obviously had the most interesting smells (aside from BMWs, which just smell like a dirty fat pig butchered in a farm…ahem).

when i first smelled Kiton Black, the first thing that came to my mind was the smell of a new Mercedes-Benz.  It reminded me of the MB E500 my father picked up a few years ago.  Warm suede and leather and a fresh (not overly) clean and airy smell with a very light touch of fruit (very light) thrown over it.  I was instantly convinced.

this stuff is great, truly understated class in every way.  Kiton are generally known for their fine (and very expensive) men’s clothing line—consisting of bespoke suits, shirts, pants, etc.  Kiton Black is their latest fragrance, introduced in 2007 and is supposedly a variation of their previous scent Kiton Man (which i have not tried).  But this stuff is masculine class at its finest in a bottle…
