  • Alexander McQueen's new fragrance "Kingdom"

    I was going to purchase the Calvin Klein Purple Orchid EDP (LE) tonight. Passed by the Kingdom's promo booth and decided to test out this new fragrance. The design of the bottle is very special I must say, like just like an art work!

    Anyway, I found it quite sexy, seductive, floral and woody. Much more special than the CK so I bought it instead IMO it's not a light/airy nor an overpowering scent, but I probably will wear it more at night. I don't know how to describe a scent but I whole heartedly agreed what they've said (Courtesy of MUAer Amandampc & jennyb):

    "I tried this for the first time today, intrigued as much as anything else by the fact that someone here had mentioned its 'sweaty' note. Well, it's cumin, and I like it!

    The scent opens with an airy blend of neroli and bergamot, which fades to reveal a basically floral heart, with rose to the fore, and yes, that cumin note. There's also a touch of ginger in there, which persists as it dries down to a predominantly sandalwood base. The curry and roses blend is so English it's perfect! This is like a much lighter, younger version of Boudoir or Agent Provocateur, more fun and not trying nearly as hard.

    The bottle is terrifically inventive too, and photos don't really do it justice. Imagine a large orange segment, with the skin rendered in silver metal and the flesh in ruby-colored glass, and you have it. Both the spray button and the spray nozzle are nearly hidden in the base. Terribly impractical, as there's no way to see how much is left, or repair it if it goes wrong, but novel!
    I found this scent rather mellow (McQueen - mellow??? Not a likely combo, I know!), sweet like a really nice brandy would be (enough, not too) and also a touch ambery/woody."

        nah, I'm very weak in describing scent. I just copied and pasted those 2 MUAers' descriptions which I whole heartedly agreed on!

        You gals, (including Jemay) try it out.
