Perfume Description

Perfume Name By Kilian Straight to Heaven
Year Introduced 2007
Perfumer Sidonie Lancesseur
Gender Unisex
Strength Eau de parfum, edp
Notes rum, musk, jasmine, patchouli, virginia cedar, amber, nutmeg, vanille, rum and dried fruits
Country of Origin France

 

By Kilian Straight to Heaven is a part of the original Collection L'oeuvre Noire (Black Masterpiece) and takes its inspiration from rum.  I'm thinking this through - rum sends us to heaven or there will be rum in heaven?  Either way, it will work.  Rich, boozy on the open with a lovely wood accord running through until it it finds the door to salty notes and sun-warmed skin.

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.

Product Reviews

  1. Pleasant fragrance but cedar note a bit too prominent 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2015

    The initial smell is dominated by a cedar note, which does mellow out in the dry down, however, for my nose was just a bit too much of a pencil-type smell.


  2. Great fragrance but ? over longevity 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jun 2013

    This is a great fragrance that projects very well for the first say 4 hours then appears to dry down to a close to the skin scent and then disappear on my skin thereafter. I certainly received good comments from the ladies at work. Most reviewers talk to great longevity. I have scored this fragrance four stars only because it is expensive, in my opinion, for a 50ml FB (only size available) versus the longevity I received. Nevertheless this a fragrance that I will most likely purchase in due course. lucky scent being the online seller of choice as this fragrance is not available in New Zealand (or the By Kilian House itself).
