• Out of the norm: Fine art translated into the world of perfume

    By Tuesday, October 17, 2017 0 Permalink 0

    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.

    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).

  • G-Shock No Comply: a story about bending to no one, rising above the confines of your conditions

    By Friday, July 7, 2017 0 Permalink 0

    It´s been 35 years since CASIO engineer, Kikuo Ibe, introduced the indestructible G-Shock watch, and to celebrate the milestone, the brand has launched GA-710GB, an exclusive, numbered, only-500-units-worldwide limited-edition timepiece called “No Comply”.

    The highly expected model successfully encapsulates CASIO’s G-Shock values: abundance of technological features, shock-resistant structure and fierce style. The limited edition is presented in an very popular black and gold combo, and accompanied by a matching bandana.

    Nowadays the G-Shock guys are unstoppable. Featuring durable and flexible resin band, tough mineral glass, the resistance of the watch, waterproof up to 20 bars, becomes an indisputable factor. The eye-catcher comes with the possibility of configuring up to 5 daily alarms, 5 years of battery life, universal time function and automatic calendar. Besides that, the precision of its stopwatch and timer is among the most powerful on the market.

    For this very special launch, the company pays homage to the old-school skateboarding trick “No Comply”, with the same nonconformist soul as the just released limited-edition timepiece. Starring teen artist grime MC Novelist and pro skaters Lucien Clarke and Benny Fairfax, the campaign represents the 80´s skater lifestyle.
