By Kilian Black Phantom 'Memento Mori" is part of the Collection L'oeuvre Noire (Black Masterpiece). While the first six By Kilian Perfumes in the series were well-received, that many at one time was a little overwhelming.  Launched in 2017, created by Sidonie Lancesseur, this is an oriental vanilla unisex fragrance with notes of rum, sugar cane, dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, almond, heliotrope and sandalwood.

Kilian Hennessy launched By Kilian in 2007. Yup, the Cognac Hennessy, grandson to the founder of Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton Group, he followed his interest in scent, writing his thesis on the semantics of odors. After spending time with leading perfumers, he launched By Kilian with the Collection L'oeuvre Noire (Black Masterpiece) series. There are now 10 fragrances in that series. The over-the-top marketing copy drew a lot of criticism in the early part of his launch, but the gorgeous packaging - black lacquer boxes and black bottles - started to win us over, as did the artistry of the fragrances. 

Reviews of By Kilian Black Phantom 'Memento Mori"

From Sephora - "Once the boozy fireflies have dimmed a little, a gentler accord begins to bloom – a wonderfully soft, nutty sandalwood that reminds us of caramelized pain de mie dipped into warm milk. This fragrance is for those that love sophistication in their fragrances, this can be a staple to one's outfit. It is such an unforgettable scent, I am amazed, and so everyone around me that would smell it. Definitely, it attracts a LOT of compliments. A very sexy unisex gourmand fragrance!"

From Basenotes - "The smell (even modern despite its sinister 80's-like aura) lingers on your skin so melancholic and gothic for many hours, as a black cape you are wearing while pacing the alleys of a monumental churchyard of a old medieval city."
