First it hits with lavender and musc with some lime as a men's cologne or some Russian leather family fragrance. Then the lavender settles down and goes quite dry with no sense of caramel just lavandar backed up with harsh musc.

The simplest of the Veros, but the most charming: bright, clean, slightly caramelized lavender with a faint, metallic fruitiness and a warm, musky drydown. Comforting, serene, and fuzzy-textured.

It's worth noting that, while with most of VdE's/parfums, I've found it more a matter of application preference than actual structure, the balance in the parfum is much better than the VdE comparing them side to side. The composition is essentially the same, but in the VdE the lavender is somewhat more aggressive in the first fifteen minutes, losing a pinch of the parfum's charm in the process. A small difference, but worth noting.

The ability to break perfume down into notes and ingredients is highly valued among perfume fans. It is understood to indicate a discerning nose and is often used to distinguish the cognoscenti from the overwashed masses. Unfortunately, it is unduly valued and can impede enjoyment and a better understanding of perfume for the wearer. This misconception is one of the side-effects of the secrecy of the perfume industry. What perfume wearers know about the inner workings of perfume composition and production amounts to few odd bits of information and the mythology that a little knowledge tends to foster. One tidbit is that an important, if elementary, skill in composing perfume is identifying and deconstructing scents. We mistakenly assume that the skills needed to make perfume are the same ones needed to appreciate and understand it.
A knowledge of frequency, pigments and aromachemicals does not equate to a better or more meaningful experience in appreciating painting, music or perfumery. Perfumery can be read, but calls for critical thinking and self-reflection. The vocabulary of aroma is helpful, but not necessary.

Reading Kiki tells you about the perfume and by extension the perfumer. Kiki reinforces what I suspected on wearing Kern's Rozy and Onda: Kern is a classicist but not necessarily a traditionalist. All three perfumes demonstrate a measured use of the vocabulary and techniques of quintessential western perfumery. Kiki is an essay on lavender and makes allusions to 19th century icons such as Houbigant Fougère Royale and Guerlain Jicky without being either derivative or strictly traditional. Kern says she used a lavender with a high percentage of coumarin, so the shape of a fougère is implied. The inedible soapiness of a fougère is nowhere to be found, though. Instead, a tease of caramel connotes candy-sweetness with a dry powderiness balancing the confection so that Kiki never lands in the gourmand camp. In fact, Kiki is reminiscent of early "oriental" perfumes. Where Shalimar contrasts a tart, rich bergamot with vanilla, Kiki matches bergamot and musky caramel, a compositional juxtaposition that again leans toward the classical.

The best of early 20th century perfumery was daring and pushed the expectation of what perfumery could accomplish. In this one sense, Kern can be considered traditional. More broadly, though, she uses classical methods to experiment and to explore rather than to follow. Kiki takes the expected, lavender, and gives us something novel and gorgeous.

Unearthing originality while using known forms and techniques is rare and for the less deliberate artist might never happen. Kern's combination of classicism and unconventionality pays dividends. Her perfumes are unorthodox and exquisite. Her perfumes may not appeal to all, but polarization is a consequence of deliberation and vision in art and I doubt that Kern is looking for her work to be considered broad entertainment. Call it bias or call it alignment of artist and audience, but I both admire and adore Kiki. I'm smitten.

The bitter herbal lavender here is matched with caramel, unusual and stunning actually. I used to find lavender hard to like and a tad boring due to it's long association with sleep aids and colognes. However Serge Lutens' Forreau Noir which turns sweet creamy tonka and almonds with lavender into a sumptuous gourmand beauty, taught me to be more open-minded and less jaded. Kiki Vd'E is another fine example of how to be creative with lavender and make it a subliminal example too! The musk is more apparent in the Vd'E than the EDP and the passion fruit played down but still noticeable. I get an earthy patchouli in the drydown of the Vd'E but not in the EDP.

In Italy we have a saying which in English may translate into "bite off more than one can chew". It quite fits this scent, which is interesting for its concept, but just too dissonant and developed in a way I personally do not enjoy. Basically the idea is to create an evolution which goes from a vanilla/opoponax, citrus, geranium and something juicy and almost sticky I don't get entirely (the passion fruit, I guess) to a more dry, earthy and shady "feminine fougère" drydown. All materials are great and natural – Vero Kern is one of the best when it comes to this. The fact is that it's all just "wrong" at several points from the very beginning. The very first opening accord is already a "no" for me, as I find the juxtaposition of sweet notes (vanillin, opoponax, white flowers) with citrus, pungent spices and ginger a bit messy and confusing. This quickly evolves in fact into a discomforting gingerbread smell I like even less. Furthermore, also the passion fruit note (which has quite a prominent position) is... weird, sticky, warm – somehow warm like an almost-rotting fruit. Besides, there is also a linalool "floor cleaner/insecticide" note which smells quite out of place, just wandering around like a cat bugging you while you're fixing something. After a while it all gets slightly more rubbery, still with a mentholated feel (geranium) and a bold accord or dusty, caramelised notes with patchouli and woods – which basically, from times of times, delivers an unpleasant soup smell. If my review may appear a bit messy, it's partially due to my lack of writing skills, but trust me: also the scent is messy too. Finally the very last drydown is nice, and in fact it has a fougère feel: it just is not worthy the hour of olfactory cacophonies it costed you. Still giving a barely positive rating since the materials themselves smell great, and I get the "good creative intentions" behind this. Besides I also admit I've often issues in appreciating this kind of "non-common" scents, so perhaps this is a great scent and I'm just unable to "get" it.

Glorious top notes of lavender and caramel that makes my mouth water. There's also a lovely tart freshness in there (probably the passionfruit), but already five minutes into application it settles into a subdued, powdery floral. There's a slight dusty feel in the mid notes, which makes me think of vacuum cleaning. Not the best association, but it quickly settles, and your left with the lavender and caramel again - only a lot more subdued. Still, it's a very cozy and comforting scent. Definitely a feel good fragrance, perfect for snuggling on the couch with your loved one(s). Low sillage, but good lasting power.

After reading all the positive reviews I've decided to try this, especially since I like lavender, my favorite lavender fragrance being BPAL's Lilith Victoria. There aren't any similarities between the two perfumes. Kiki is honeyed lavender and sweet tropical fruit notes. I can't smell any base notes to anchor it or give it any depth. It would have been nice if it had something like citrus or musk to cut through the sweetness.
I understand that it's supposed to conjure an air of French sophistication, which it does for about 10 minutes until it becomes generic fruity sweetness. The fact that it ends up smelling like rotten pineapple makes it unwearable for me, despite the nice opening.
