Description

By Kilian woman in Gold 

Kilian Hennessy celebrates ten years of redefining the art of modern perfumery by introducing the Dusk Till Dawn Collection. "Klimt is the authority when it comes to gold artwork and gold leaf, says master perfumer Kilian. The universe he created full of seduction and opulence represents a cultural reference, a touchstone – more than just decoration." Kilian states that it does not interest him to provoke just to provoke - he needs artistic reasoning. “The idea was to play on the contrasts between shadow and light, to express that we are all made of good and bad – but within light and dark there are a myriad of facets. I wanted to achieve this duality with perfume.” Each of the fragrances in this collection experiments with dualties: darkness and light, feminity and masculinity, modernity and proud tradition. “I wanted to mark this milestone with something unexpected. Something out of the norm, where I would be able to take inspiration from fine art and translate it into the world of perfume.” 
 
Woman in Gold is inspired by the 1907 portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, the only woman Klimt painted twice. She was the wife of an influential industrialist who financially supported Klimt. This was the last painting from Klimt's Golden Phase series. The notes conjure, in scent, the delicate gold leafing and play between light and shadow, for which the painting is celebrated.  

Kilian Hennessy launched by Kilian in 2007. Yup, that 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.
