Description

 

By Kilian Liaisons Dangereuses is a part of the original Collection L'oeuvre Noire (Black Masterpiece) and takes its inspiration from the desire, pleasure.  This is a more delicate fragrance, plump with plums, other fruits, geranium, rose oil, opulent yet oddly quiet and understated.

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 Liaisons Dangereuses

Bois de Jasmin - "Both Victoria and I have found several scents to love in these collections. But for all its attractive qualities, By Kilian could perhaps be accused of playing it safe. Without exception, the line is thoughtfully composed (by perfumer Calice Becker) of high-quality materials. What they are not, for the most part, is weird. The goal of these fragrances is to provide a very beautiful, well-made rendition of a familiar idea – the rose oud, the lavender vanilla – not to shock or surprise. (See Etat Libre d’Orange for an example of a line that sometimes favors shock value over beauty.)

But Liaisons Dangereuses  (part of the L’Oeuvre Noire collection) breaks the pattern, and “dangerous liaison,” or dangerous affair, is a useful metaphor, as it combines two notes that in theory could be disastrous: rose and coconut. It’s surprising because it’s so unexpected, and even more surprising because it works."

    This one doesn't get much love, but it's my favorite from Kilian. It's a bit like Amouage's Jubilation XXV in its hot rose berry jam quality. In it is bay and rum and vanilla, as well as flaked coconut and peach. Eventually, a necessary dose of oakmoss shows up to invigorate the perfume and give it a somewhat sporty fresh quality.
