By Kilian Incense Oud is part of the Collection Arabian Nights. By Kilian Incense Oud is based on incense and oud. The oud was created without actually using oud. Notes of cedar, patchouli, sandalwood, cistus labdanum and oakmoss create the illlusion of oud. Warm and woody stays close to the skin, soft.
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.
