Kiehl's Travels Back in Time With Four New Essences

Kiehl's Travels Back in Time With Four New Essences

While taking a ride on a time machine might not be a reality unless you're Doc Brown or Marty McFly, Kiehl's has found a way for you to experience the past through your olfactory senses. This month, the 158-year-old company reintroduces old school essences with the launch of four modern-style Essence Oils With Roller Ball Applicators (each $25).

These highly concentrated scents can be worn alone or mixed together, and give a nod to the cult classics of yesteryear. They include: Musk 1921 (which was thought to be "too sensual" when originally formulated), Coriander 1946, Vanilla 1968 (often mixed with Musk), and Grapefruit 1976. Six additional scents will follow in the next few months. I've always been fascinated by Kiehl's apothecary stylings and it's nice to see them going back to their roots. With the recent Stila/Barbie collaboration, do I sense a possible retro tribute trend here? Perhaps we'll see some more blasts from the past in the future.

I think everyone is feeling a bit nostalgic, for a time when we weren't worried about war, economy and job security, so great marketing on their part. I think it would be interesting to mix the musk with the vanilla, though. It did make me giggle when you said the musk was too sensual for it's time. Some of the scents we wear now would probably make them blush!

I love Kiehl's, pretty much everything I've ever tried by them is completely awesome. The grapefruit one sounds the most appealing to me, but I definitely want to check out the coriander one too.
