    Um? Kilian isn’t an indie brand at all.

    • Robin says:

      See their definition of indie at the bottom of the article above. By that definition, it is an indie brand.

      My definition of an indie brand is quite different and would disqualify many of the entries.

    Indie or not, Amber Oud is the first By Kilian fragrance that I have fallen completely in love with. I had sort of given up on the line until Amber Oud came along. I’m now saving my pennies for a full bottle of this deep, rich, sensuous fragrance.

  3. Omega says:

    I do really like that Amber Oud, it’s nice. Cuirelle, I am not into leather that much but if I were, I would love it I am sure. It’s a good leather and like I said, I am not even into leather. The others I haven’t tried from the list.
