• Kilian. Perfume as an art.

    By Wednesday, July 19, 2017 0 Permalink 0

    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).

    By Thursday, January 5, 2017 0 Permalink 0

    Inspired by “exquisite gardens that surround Clive Christian’s own magnificent Queen Anne residence built in the grandest tradition nearly 300 years ago in 1730”, his brand new unisex fragrances Cosmos Flower and Rock Rose are the designer’s very personal homage to “to the most celebrated periods in English architectural history”.

    COSMOS FLOWER (flower with Mexican roots, also called the flower of love)

    The sumptuous, sensual scent opens with rum, mandarin, pink pepper and apple notes, the irresistible mix of notes also include natural bittersweet cocoa, a seductive blend of plums with a bouquet of ylang-ylang, violet, jasmine and osmanthus, and caramel.

    ROCK ROSE (prized by British Nobility during the period of the Queen Anne)

    The opening notes combine the intense power of Rock Rose with citrus, bergamot, black pepper and neroli. The heart consists of violet, herbs and lavender, and the base notes include patchouli, amber and cocoa.

     

    “Inspired by a place that is deeply precious to me, exquisite perfumes of noble birth, they are truly extraordinary and yet unapologetically British”

    Clive Christian OBE

  • New fragrance in the house: Versace DYLAN BLUE

    By Friday, October 14, 2016 0 Permalink 0

    The new charismatic fragrance by Versace, in a deep blue flacon with gold-tone Medusa head seal and matching cap, brings a touch of Mediterranean sensuality.

    Dylan Blue opens with Calabrian bergamot, grapefruit, fig leaf and fresh aquatic notes. Has black pepper, violet leaves, patchouli, woody ambrox and papyrus wood in the strongly pulsating heart. And closes with a blend of mineral musk, saffron, frankincense and tonka beans.

    “I love how Dylan Blue captures such an evocative world of Versace masculinity. I have always believed men should be strong, passionate, proud, expressive, unafraid”, Donatella Versace shared with WWD: “I love that in today’s world, men feel able to reveal their true natures, to share their passions and their beliefs. It’s there in the fragrance, which is strong, fresh, seductive. It is there in the bottle design, which is powerful, distinctive. It is there in the beautiful, individual young men who feature in the campaign. It is there in the martial arts fighters who appear, and who prove their strength every day”.

    The campaign film was directed by Bruce Weber.
