    To celebrate the 10th anniversary of redefining the art of the contemporary perfumery, Kilian created a duo of sumptuous, extravagant, sensual and richly textured fragrances, inspired by the luxury and glamour of “fin de siècle Vienna, and its most subversive artist, Gustav Klimt”: Woman in Gold and Gold Knight.

    When talking about the two new perfumes, Kilian Hennessy shared: “I wanted to mark this milestone with something exceptional. Something out of the norm, where I would be able to take inspiration from fine art and translate it into the world of perfume.”

    Woman in Gold, created by the French master perfumer Calice Becker, is defined by the same intrigue and bewitching glamour as its inspiration – the 1907 portrait of the leading taste-maker and Viennese art patron, the only woman the Austrian symbolist painted twice, Adele Bloch-Bauer. The mystical scent opens with Bergamot and Mandarin, has Rose and Geranium at a heart, and closes with Tonka Bean and Vanilla.

  • Kilian. Perfume as an art.

    Ten years ago, Kilian Hennessy, successor of the famous French dynasty of cognac-makers, affirmed a common language between mortals and gods existed through the semantics of scent. Kilian’s belief is based on his childhood memories from the House of Hennessy. Memories about “angels’ share” – the percentage that (inexplicably) evaporates from cognac cellars, and that has been considered an offering to the gods.

    Following the 19th century perfumery art, Kilian created his namesake brand, globally acclaimed for the exquisite sophisticated formulas of its timeless luxury fragrances, the stories Kilian is able to tell through its scents, including “Forbidden Games”, “Stright to Heaven”, “Good Girl Gone Bad”, “Voules Vous Coucher Avec Moi”, Playing With the Devil” or “Love Don’t Be Shy”, and its spectacular packaging, such as glossy evening minaudières, adorned with a gold snake or lacquered coffrets.

    Kilian luxurious fragrances are both contemporary and timeless. As part of Kilian’s “eco-luxe” philosophy, all the bottles are refillable, so you can keep your favourite ones for a lifetime.

    We are beyond happy to welcome Kilian to our meticulously handpicked selection of niche and designer perfumes. Available in our stores in Puerto Banús and online (exclusively inside the EU).
