Bamboo Harmony pays homage to Bamboo, considered by the “Men of Letters” as the symbol of human perfection. The scent, soft and fresh, opens with luminous notes of Bergamot from Calabria, Bigarade from Ivory Coast and Neroli from Tunisia. It then evolves through a comforting heart combining white tea leaves and Mimosa from Morocco, highlighted with a touch of spices. The unique character of the trail is given by rare Maté Essence, interlaced with sensual Fig leaves and Oak Moss.

Head Notes – Bergamot, Petitgrain, Neroli

Heir to a long line of cognac makers who were pioneers in luxury, Kilian decided to take up the torch of family tradition. Creating a new luxury brand was definitely a challenge worthy of his predecessors.
His childhood haunts included the family cellars in Cognac. Before graduating from CELSA, he wrote a thesis on the semantics of scent, in search of a ‘language’ common to gods and mortals. Remembering the “angels’ share” as part of his heritage, he was led into the world of perfumery. The “angels’ share” is what the House of Hennessy calls the percentage that – inexplicably – evaporates from cognac cellars, like an offering to the gods.
Many of Kilian’s fragrances today carry this childhood memory as they are reminiscent of the sugar in the alcohol and the wood of the cognac barrels
