Kilian says the inspiration of Love (Don’t Be Shy) was the marshmallow…a mouth watering treat for sensuous connoisseurs. It’s sweet (but not overly) and tender at first, a soft and sugared elixir mixed with the orangey delights of bergamot and neroli, warmed with caramel and vanilla. It’s almost nostalgic in some way…not an old fashioned feel but more like youthful exuberance which gains a gentle sensuality as it warms on the skin and the rose, jasmine and sweet notes combine. Love captures that sweet transition from innocence to worldly, but it never crosses the line into beat-you-over-the-head sexy territory. It’s a memory scent, somewhere between a young girl’s unicorn, rainbows and purple phase and her door slamming, love struck tirades…right in-between innocence and not.
