Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Extreme Eau de Parfum Made Me Sob For Two Reasons

Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Extreme Eau de Parfum was on sale at Saks last weekend and I totally missed the sale. I literally sunk to the floor and cried out in horror that I missed a sale on this. Ugh….! I had it in my cart, I was going to check out, but I got distracted and forgot. Monday loomed and the sale was over.

I flung myself on the floor, beat my fists on the floor in anger, and cried ugly tears that I forgot to order it! Now I have to pay full price….The horror.

The second reason I sobbed was because I’ve been very, very busy at work and realized the last video I watched with Brooklyn Fragrance Lover was his video on Love, Don’t Be Shy Extreme Eau de Parfum. If you don’t know yet know from some of my posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, Carlos aka Brooklyn Fragrance Lover passed away recently. I really enjoyed his content and it really saddened me to hear he passed away! RIP Carlos! I hope your channel lives on youTube forever so that future perfume-a-holics can love all over your amazing content.

I’ll be enjoying Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Extreme Eau de Parfum and thinking of Carlos when I do.

So, I haven’t actually smelled Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Extreme Eau de Parfum yet. Covid cases are down in New York again so I was thinking this weekend I’d break my quarantine to take a slow romantic walk around the perfume aisles at Saks and mostly important smell Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Extreme Eau de Parfum. You know I am obsessed with the original! The original is pure bliss! Marshmallow, orange blossom, gorgeous, girly, but sexy. You already know why the original Love, Don’t Be Shy is a favorite of mine! I do so love sweet gourmands and the scent brings that to the next level!

With Extreme they loaded the scent with rose compose and an extra shot of orange blossom. And I’m sitting over here like damn I wish it was more marshmallow. People are saying that extra dose of rose is giving the scent a more jammy element much like Lush Rose Jam. I’ve heard this a few times and it concerns me. I like Lush Rose Jam but in really small amounts because it’s been known to give me a bloody headache. I’m hoping the rose isn’t too overwhelming! But I trust in Kilian and I have no doubt this will me utterly delicious!

Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Extreme Eau de Parfum is available now.

Is it on your fragrance wish list?

    Semi off topic, but NY is the only state I have heard that is doing the proper due diligence in contact tracing. 2 podcasters who flew from LA to NY (about the long unsolved LISK) were contacted daily and had to submit nose swabs. Way to go, NY! I know a fam whose kids fly fairly reg from NC to Mass, and NOTHING. That’s part of why NY will win this Covid war. Yay, NY!

    I ordered a decant for the perfume after the controversy on the YouTube channel Smelling Great Fragrance Reviews. So after my sample arrived in the mail and I loved how the cloying marshmallow scent was muted I was also bummed I missed the sale because I was on the site the day of the sale.

      What was the sale price of this perfume on Saks? The only thing I saw was that they were running a promo that if you spent x-amount then you’d get some discount of your total. Or did i totally miss some big sale!?

    I need to learn more about this. Must have been living under a rock! Sounds lovely.

    I’m still processing Carlo’s passing. It was such a shock and not one I’ll get over easily. He was one of those dear friends I never got to meet in person, much like yourself, but no less a deep loss…

      I am too! He was terribly young! I live in NY as well and feel sad I never got a chance to meet him IRL!

    I used to watch YouTube star Auntie Fee. She was so cool! Her son videoed her last moments.
    She was cool all the way to the end!
