A perfume of extreme temptation where every street corner offers the possibility of impromptu encounters and seductions. The fragrance opens with an explosion of spices: Bergamot from Calabria, rose peppercorns and cardamom from Guatamala. The perfume then evolves into a heart of apricots and caramelised plums held in check by the Turkish Rose Absolute. A light haze of Indonesian incense entrances and then lends a profound depth, further sustained by Atlas and Virginia cedar woods and rich Indonesian patchouli.

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
