By Kilian Pure Oud is the first fragrance to start the Collection Arabian Nights.  Pure oud is dark, magnetic, temperamental, balancing perfectly the bitterness of oud, smoothing it out, curling under that very tip where it is at its most bitter into a sensual snarl that is all longing.  As I said when I first smelled it, "This is the melancholy letter you write at the end of the affair with the person you wrongly thought was the love of your life... it is the darkness you covet." Did I mention that this stuff is smooth and addictive? Seriously.  It's expensive, but one drop on your write or fingertip is enough, and you'll find your nose pressed into it because you will never get enough.

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.
