Love Kills

Love Kills

Love Kills by Masque Milano is a Floral fragrance for women and men. This is a new fragrance. Love Kills was launched in 2019. The nose behind this fragrance is Caroline Dumur. Top notes are Turkish Rose Oil, Rose, African Geranium and Ambrette (Musk Mallow); middle notes are Turkish Rose and Patchouli; base notes are Ambrarome, Cedar Essence and Musk.
While the concept of a soliflore might suggest simpler, more linear scents, one sniff of Love Kills should quickly disavow you of that notion. Instead, Caroline Dumur has created a rose soliflore with luscious yet edgy depth, one that masterfully plays off of the well known phrase it takes its name from to present both the romantic and dangerous sides of the grand dame of perfume florals.

On the "Love" side of things, the fragrance opens with joyful brightness, using a mouthwateringly juicy lychee note to introduce a sparkling, ambrette-tinted rose oxide. As it blossoms into a full-bodied, romantic Turkish rose absolute, we see the darker, more sensual, "Killer" side of the equation- sultrier floral tones, animalic musk, and a woodsy patchouli distillation with a decidedly...thorny quality. It's a portrait of love in full- the joy, the hope, the intensity, and even the heartbreak, all contained within the multifaceted beauty of a rose.
