When Love and Fragrance Entwine

“Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs,” said the timeless Shakespeare, a phrase that immediately springs to mind when experiencing Love Kills by Masque Milano. The scent envelops you in a bouquet of freshly cut roses. Each inhalation is like an act of falling in love. It’s a fragrance narrative that captures the essence of tragic love, echoing the sentiments of Romeo and Juliet. A captivating journey of scent, love, and life awaits you.


The Allure of the Uncommon: Why Love Kills Is Special

Much like the impassioned and out-of-the-ordinary love between Romeo and Juliet, Love Kills distinguishes itself even within the niche perfume market. It does so through its poetic narrative and a complex blend of high-quality ingredients. Crafted with luxurious elements like Turkish Rose oil, Cedarwood, and the unique Love Skin and Love Scars accords, Love Kills serves as a poetic tribute to the extraordinary love stories that captivate us, much like Shakespeare’s timeless tale.

From Bud to Bloom: A Love’s Awakening

The instant Love Kills graces your skin, it’s as if a bashful rosebud is carefully unfurling its petals. The top notes of Turkish Rose oil and Egyptian Geranium oil radiate an innocent allure, much like the first encounter between Romeo and Juliet. This stage is enlivened by a unique “Love Skin accord,” which combines Ambrette Absolute and Rose oxide, adding a layer of refined subtlety to the scent’s opening.

The Rose in Full Bloom: The Height of Passion

As Love Kills settles into its heart, you’re transported to a garden of luxuriant roses, blossoming in their prime. In this moment, it’s as if you hear Juliet murmur, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” The core of the fragrance showcases an opulent Turkish Rose absolute, further enriched by nuanced traces of Patchouli and a provocative “Love Scars accord,” consisting of Cedarwood oil, animalic musks, and Ambrarome.

The Scent Bubble: Love’s Gentle Whisper

In the same way that Romeo quietly professed his love to Juliet, Love Kills opts for subtlety over loudness. As you wear it, it forms an intimate scent bubble around you, a veil that gently drifts between you and those you allow within your close circle. Moreover, its Love Scars accord—made up of Cedarwood oil and animalic musks—ensures that you won’t need to overspray. Indeed, this fragrance communicates in hushed yet memorable whispers. Ultimately, just like a closely guarded secret, its quiet presence becomes all the more impactful, deepening its emotional resonance with each moment.

Until the Last Breath: An Everlasting Impact

Love Kills is a fragrance that doesn’t waver; it stays with you faithfully until you decide to part ways. As Shakespeare poignantly said in “Romeo and Juliet,” “These violent delights have violent ends. And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, which, as they kiss, consume.” But unlike the tragic end of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, the love emanated by Love Kills endures. It persists from morning until your evening shower, a testament not only to the emotional impact of the fragrance but also to the quality ingredients—like the Turkish Rose absolute and Cedarwood oil—that make up its intricate composition. The scent’s longevity is its own form of triumph, ensuring that the tale it tells remains etched in your memory long after the day has ended.


Aesthetic and Presentation: Love at First Sight

The Bottle: A Poetry in Glass and Metal

Let’s not forget the bottle that houses this liquid love letter. The attention to detail extends to the atomizer, which offers a fine mist, ensuring the luxurious scent is evenly distributed on your skin, only enhancing the overall experience. Masque Milano has crafted a bottle that’s a poetic blend of form and function. It’s heavy with a metallic plate displaying the perfumer’s name and the fragrance name. I chose the 35ml piece and it adds so much charm to my collection.
