Vero Profumo - Kiki Voile d'Extrait

Over the years, Kiki both in Extrait and Edp has grown to be my favorite fragrance from Vero Kern, dethrone Rubj to be number two. Therefore it was of course very intruiging to test Kiki in the Voile d'Extrait version.

Kiki in Extrait is an multifacetted fragrance with notes of lavender and some notes that reminds me of wheat and beer notes over a dark, fresh earthy accord in the basenotes. Review here. The Edp version is almost gourmand in style and the passionfruitnote contrasted with dark patchouli is more prounanced. Review here.

To make a long story short, I think that Kiki Voile d'Extrait is close to the extrait (just as Rubj and Onda) it just play one or two ocataves higer on the scale. The fragrance is brighter and more sparkling in its apperance and the lavender is a bit more pronounced.

All the Kikis are intriguing fragrances with new twists in each stage. Kiki is a demanding, stubborn, racy and energetic character which is never boring, just as the two (after each other) wirehaired foxterriers of my grandparents who were named Kiki.

Kiki Voile d'Extrait has a good longevity just as the extrait, over 12h. Nice to wear during autumn, winter and early spring.

Rating: 5

Notes: Bergamot, citron, black currant, passionfruit; lavender, geranium, musk, patchouli, opoponax, amber caramel

  1. Ha! I got a kick out of your comparison of Kiki to your grandparents' fox terriers of the same name. Yes, Kiki does have a lot of energy - I can understand your analogy. :)

  2. I love the terriercharacter. When I grow up we also had a foxterrier named Asta after the foxterrier hero in the 1930s movie "The thin man"
