Kilian Hennessy is one of the most interesting niche perfumers working today. What is special about his creations is he brings an encyclopedia-worthy knowledge of this history of perfumery throughout the past century with an extensive knowledge of ingredients. He’s studied with the finest master perfumers and understands the nuances of how notes either work or compete with each other in a scent.

Read my interview with Kilian Hennessy here.

Born into the Hennessy cognac dynasty in France, he took the brave step to follow his passion for perfume as an art. I’ve had the incredible pleasure of interviewing him twice and I’m always amazed by his enthusiasm for his creations. This is an entrepreneur who won’t skimp on quality for any price.

Perfume As An Art:

I’m thrilled to be giving away three of Kilian’s very special creations to one lucky reader. The first is his latest fragrance called “Rolling In Love”. It’s a soft, Oriental-floral like scent with notes of ambrette (musk mallow), almond milk, freesia, iris, vanilla, musk, tuberose and tonka bean. It is a creamy, semi-floral powdery scent for her. It really is cocooning and comforting. (Kilian worked with another perfumer, Pascal Gaurin on this project.)

Perfumed Lipstick

What is exciting to watch is Kilian’s move into perfumed makeup. This was a popular trend in the 1930s, Kilian’s favourite decade for style and design. He’s blended a very light, slightly sweet scent to gently fragrance his luxe lipsticks. This Le Rouge Parfum Scented Lip Colour is a matte lipstick in a shade called “aphrodisiac rouge 210”. The packaging is exquisite with a nod to 1930’s glamour.

Evening Clutch

And what better way to carry your signature scent and favourite prestige lipstick than in a gold metallic clutch. Kilian has designed a series of these with witty quotes that can be used on a vanity to store lipsticks or travel scents. They look equally good at a gala dinner or on a red carpet.
