When you think of fragrances in the beauty industry, one’s that may come to mind are the sensual and alluring smell of Tom Ford Black Orchid, fresh and stunning Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue, or the feminine, refreshing allure of Thierry Mugler Angel. All of these are household names in the beauty and fragrance industry. As these fragrances continue to mature and thrive, there is another fragrance in the beauty industry that is making a BIG name for themself. I would like to proudly present to you “Kilian.”
Many of you may not know, but the now famous and luxurious brand Kilian was founded by the grandson of the famous LVMH Group Kilian Hennessy. Kilian Hennessy is heir to a long line of cognac makers that were pioneers in the luxury business from clothing, textile, leather goods, and later cosmetics. Kilian grew up learning and working in the family cellars in Cognac. According to bykilian.com, before graduating from CELSA know as (School of Higher Studies in the Information and Communication Sciences at the Sorbornne in Paris), he wrote a thesis on the semantics of odors in search of a language common to gods and mortals. In search of the “angels’ share”, he discovered the world of perfumery. How genius!?
Since then, Kilian has produced some of the world’s most luxurious and sought after perfume. Kilian’s fragrances are redolent of the sugar in alcohol and the wood of the cognac barrels that he grew up with. Each perfume is infused with special oils that come from mother nature that react to the body’s natural chemistry. ome of the names of Kilian’s fragrance collections are the Arabian Nights Collection and the L’Oeuvre Noire Collection. The Arabian Nights Collection consists of the pure oud, rose oud, and the incense oud. The L’Oeuvre Noire Collection consists of the Love By Kilian and Love and Tears to name a few. Kilian’s fragrance and scent collection represents elegance, class, and luxury. Kilian’s collections can be found in Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, and online at www.bykilian.com.
