Description

By Kilian Love and Tears is a part of the Collection L'oeuvre Noire (Black Masterpiece) and takes its inspiration from jasmine.  While you would think this would be a sad, brooding jasmine, it is not, it is the beauty of love that comes with the tears, carrying green bright notes that make it sparkle. The jasmine is not heavily indolic.  Daffodil provides a wee bit of leather to toughen up that heart, and then it all rests on a moss and woods base.  Notes of bergamot, petitgrain, lavandin, galbanum, daffodil, Egyptian and Indian jasmines, lily of the valley, orange blossom, ylang, jasmine water, cedarwood, oakmoss and styrax.

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. 

 

By Kilian Love and Tears Reviews

Bois de Jasmin - "The initial impression of Love & Tears is that of sparkling, green brightness, the springtime sensation felt when one smells the new leaves, sticky buds and new grass. The lush jasmine note begins to unfold almost immediately, though it presents itself in layers. First, it is the apricot jam sweetness of jasmine absolute, then the jasmine takes on a soft, tender quality, and finally, a subtle leathery note peeks through the mass of white petals. "

Olfactoria's Travels - "What Love and Tears does to me, was very unexpected. I find myself basking in its light. For me Love and Tears has an almost visible glowing aura, I feel like I am in my own private ray of sunlight when wearing it. Like a halo, it surrounds me and bathes me in its white light. It softens contours, it makes my vision fuzzy and my outlook mellow and benevolent."

Fragrantica - "Love and Tears is a luminous, radiant jasmine soliflore to me. It opens slightly citrus tinged, adorned by green bright lily of the valley nuance and a tiny bit of indole rendering it natural and vivid. When these shimmering aspects gradually attenuate, Love and Tears becomes silky with a sort of lotion-like nuance of ylang ylang and tuberose. There is a galbanum and moss undertone keeping the jasmine grounded on the branch. Although the evolution of different nuances is detectable, Love and Tears is unmistakably an innocent, fresh jasmine. It's feminine, envelopping, yet non-demanding, airy and ethereal."

    Killian Love & Tears - Down & Dirty in the Best Way

    I'm a white flower kind of woman, but I have a definite dark side-I bought Love and Tears because of what was in it. But now I continue to purchase because I love its indolic flavor slightly tempered by brighter notes. I have a jasmine wintering over in my house, and when it blooms, you understand the definition of indolic. I Love & Tears a l'oeuvre noir.

    Not much drama

    This is a pretty perfume, easy to like. To my nose it is mostly about jasmine, a creamy and lush jasmine note. There is a citrusy accord to balance the jasmine. I find it a happy perfume, no tears or drama in this one.I dab perfumes like this and sillage is then fairly moderate.

    I want to marry this

    All that is beautiful in a bottle. Worth playing the lottery for...in the meantime I will continue to order smaller amounts from STC.
