Perfume by Kilian
His collection of six scents is darkly romantic and has been deeply influenced by his love of literature. The packaging is beautiful as well. Each bottle is nestled in it’s own handsome wooden box that actually locks with a key. Of course, this is not without expense. The perfume retails for $250 but later you can just pick up a refill for $95. Bergdorf’s carries the Kilian line and so of course I had to peruse the collection and they all smell heavenly. According to Hennessy, “perfume should either be a shield, to create an environment of ease, or else a weapon of seduction.” Sounds like my favorite, Liaisons Dangereuses might be of the latter persuasion. Check them out for yourself at Bergdorf Goodman or Aedes de Venustas.
