‘True Luxury is meant to last‘ – Kilian Hennessy. I love how the Contrast of Gold & Darkness in Scent was created with the Woman in Gold By Kilian and this new scent depicts something very classic and yet very perfect for the season. Love The Way You Feel By Kilian is a limited edition fruity floral fragrance. Love The Way You Feel celebrates the tactile pleasures of beachside bodies. A warming and exotic scent instantly suggesting skin-on-skin contact and gorgeously glowing tan. Gentle head notes of bergamot and neroli are the perfect entry into the sweet and sensual. The fragrance trail melts into ylang-ylang and Tiare flower at its exotic heart, enhanced by both comforting and suggestive coconut and vanilla accords.
The packaging, as always with the house, is so classic and regal. Kilian turns up the heat with two, limited-edition summer fragrances inspired by the sun, sin, and style of the city of Miami. The iconic Kilian perfume flacon pays tribute to the art and design intelligentsia with linear lines like Miami’s distinctive art deco design sensibilities of transparent glass in a gallery-wall and of a vibrant coral paintbrush.
Top Notes of the fragrance are bergamot and neroli, middle notes include ylang-ylang and Tiare flower, base notes are coconut and vanilla. The perfumer behind the scent is Sidonie Lancesseur.
It is a beautiful fragrance, very delicate and airy. It does give the tropical beachy vibe of summer. It is a nice mixture of coconut, monoi, floral and clean for me. The fresh florals come nicely and as they settle, the sweeter vanilla comes into play. The coconut comes in here and there but is not very prominent, I love coconut in a fragrance which is not very strong, and in this one, when it comes in whiffs, I love it when you forget about it and then you smell it again after some time. Overall, I really like the fresh and clean vibe of this scent. The staying power on me is really nice, could smell it after 6-7 hours.
There is a new shower gel I have been really liking from the house, Good Girl Gone Bad shower gel. I have not tried the original scent Good Girl Gone Bad but I am very intrigued to try it after using this shower gel. The perfumer behind this scent is Alberto Morillas. The shower gel is the first layer of your perfuming ritual, with its light yet effective lathering. The fragrance is true to itself and, when shower gel, body lotion, and perfume are used in a three-part layering ritual, the perfume trail is profound, prolonged and absolutely pitch perfect. The uninhibited Good girl gone Bad finds herself in a luscious floral whirlwind in the garden of good and evil. Half-innocent, half-voluptuous, the apricot-tinged osmanthus absolute, orange blossom and rose of May absolute that open the fragrance are beholden by the ultimate temptress: an explosion of the three-sirens of flowers: tuberose absolute, jasmine and narcissus.
As you see in the pictures, the packaging is exquisite. KILIAN has crafted a sleek and stylized vessel for the bath and body refills. It is a covetable object in itself designed to stand beautifully in your bathroom. Following several years of development, a shower gel and body lotion have been custom-formulated with uncompromising respect for the quality and integrity of each fragrance blend. The KILIAN Bath & Body Collection is a new adventure in the elaboration of the modern perfuming ritual. Scent meets skin, now in multiple forms, with the art of perfume always in perfect frame.
These would make a great gift, or a great addition to your collection, I would recommend you to check this out when in-store Kilian is available at Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, Net-A-Porter, Harrods.
