Incarnating light and luxury: Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Extreme

Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy is a Kilian Paris fragrance icon, with its delightful marshmallow accord resonating from its heart. Created over a decade ago by founder Kilian Hennessy in collaboration with perfumer Calice Becker, they worked together again on Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Extreme adding a sublime crystallized floral aspect to the original.

With Love Don’t Be Shy, created in 2007, Kilian Hennessy and perfumer Calice Becker wanted to create a sweet perfume without the use of a caramel-patchouli combination. It became one of the most characteristic fragrances of Kilian Paris. According to the Maison’s founder Kilian Hennessy, the ‘iconic’ Love, a gourmet treat reserved for adults, has been pushed to its extreme in the new release.

If the best-selling blend Love, Don’t Be Shy is a command, an imperative to go boldly into the art of love, Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Extreme goes deeper into the dare and the deliciousness. Orange blossom and an overdose of rose make for a luminous elixir, irresistible to incurable gourmands.

Top notes: neroli, bergamot
Heart: orange blossom, Bulgarian rose
Base: marshmallow, pomegranate, vanilla, musk

The fragrance opens with pure sunlight, crystallized into essences of Bergamot and Orange Blossoms sourced from North Africa. It then unfolds in full bloom: Orange Blossom Absolute and Rose Essence from Bulgaria are fresh and powerful, rounding off into a sensual breakthrough of inhibitions with Amber, Vanillin and the perfume’s signature Marshmallow accord. Its rose petals are hand-picked at dawn to capture the fragrance in all its intensity.

Incarnating light and luxury, the Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Extreme perfume flacon is an unexpected interplay of contrasts in warm white glass and cool gold details, signed in engraved white. Its form remains true to Kilian Paris’ signature style: angular, elegant and urbane with art deco design undertones.

Love, Don’t Be Shy Extreme is not an invitation to love. It is a dare, an impulsive dive into fearlessness and sensuality where heart, body and spirit spread their light reflecting in the crystallized petals. Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Extreme is available as 50 ml Eau de Parfum at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Kilian Hennessy.

Kilian’s classic Love, Don’t Be Shy gets interpreted in the new limited edition for 2019 with Rose & Oud. The edition is the first of the new Special Blends series that highlights the incredibly rich and varied aspects of oud oil.

Love By Kilian Don’t Be Shy Rose and Oud gets its name inspired by love and of the exquisite composition of expensive oud oils. Created by the famous perfumer Calice Becker, the new edition perfume is a powerful, and tantalizing fragrance made of Bulgarian roses, oud, and agarwood. 

Love-By-Kilian-Don’t-Be-Shy-Rose-and-Oud-Perfume-

Called the ‘Wood of Gods’, oud is formed in the truns of Agar trees where black resin produces a captivating fragrant oil. Like a fine liquor, each year this Agar tree produces a vintage that is then blended to perfection by Kilian Hennessy.

Love, Don’t Be Shy Rose and Oud celebrates the floral facet of the original fragrance with the warm, beautiful and iconic Bulgarian Rose. It also unveils a new facet through an intoxicating Oud from Southern Asia. Two precious oils, so celebrated in perfumery for centuries, make the core marshmallow delicacy into a deeper dare to love like its home.

By Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Eau Fraîche

Kilian-Love-Don’t-Be-Shy-Eau-Fraîche-00

Kilian is celebrating over ten years of its first fragrance Love, Don’t Be Shy with a new Eau Fraîche. The company has also re-launched Good Girl Gone Bad Extreme and added Body Products to the Black Phantom Memento Mori line-up.

Love, Don’t Be Shy is the first scent I created under Kilian. My goal was to create a gourmand scent unlike any other on the market. This meant staying away from the well-known gourmand accord, Ethyl Maltol in combination with Patchouli. More importantly, I wanted a scent that would be so yummy it would make you almost want to ‘take a bite’ at your partner.

Kilian Hennessy

When you seek for more love, the answer is simple: Love By Kilian, Don’t Be Shy Eau de Fraiche. This perfume is an elixir full of love, passion, and true sensuality. Love By Kilian, Don’t Be Shy was launched in 2007, while this year the new edition appears in a fresh composition, Eau de Fraiche.

Kilian-Love-Dont-Be-Shy-Eau-Frache-03

Love is life’s narcotic – its folly and its freshness. It is something we return to, in spite of ourselves, like any proper addiction.

Kilian Hennessy

Kilian-Love-Dont-Be-Shy-Eau-Frache-05

Love, Don’t Be Shy Eau Fraîche was created by perfumer Calice Becker, who also created the original scent, Love, Don’t Be Shy.

Top notes: Neroli, Petitgrain
Heart notes: Freesia, Peony, Jsmine,
Base notes: White musk, Marshmellow

Love, Don’t Be Shy Eau Fraîche is a sweet treat for adults with its base of Marshmallow and Musk, yet it is more candid than the original Love, Don’t Be Shy. Neroli sourced from North Africa and Petitgrain from Paraguay add freshness and delicacy to the core composition. Structured like a delicate veil with its tender heart of florals such as Peony and Freesia, Love, Don’t Be Shy Eau Fraîche expresses the sensuality of the game of love.

Kilian-Love-Dont-Be-Shy-Eau-Frache-04

Becker says: “Don’t Be Shy takes inspiration from Orientale pastries and Turkish delights with a note of rose petals from Southern Europe. Don’t Be Shy is more intense, while Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy Eau Fraîche expresses petals more fluidly, enhancing the scent of musk and is slightly less gourmand”.

Destined for lovers in springtime, almost trembling with newness and the promise of what’s to come, Love, Don’t be Shy Eau Fraîche revisits the first step in the game of love, where risk is the precursor to reward.

The flacon has the same rectangular shape as all By Kilian perfume editions, yet this time it comes in a frosted white gold massive crystal bottle inspiring an expensive, luxurious and priceless accessory.

Kilian-Love-Dont-Be-Shy-Eau-Frache-02

Each Kilian flacon is transformed into a precious object. Served in a flacon of frosted white with gold hardware, its aura is one of luxury and light. The flacon is engraved on its various sides with a ceramic fresco representing the Achille’s shield and decorated with a golden plate where the name of the fragrance has been carved and manually filled with white enamel.

Kilian Love Don’t Be Shy Eau Fraîche is available as 50 and 100ml Eau de Parfum.

Kilian have also relaunched Good Girl Gone Bad Extreme as part of the permanent collection. The scent was originally launched in 2017 as a limited edition and has notes of Indian Jasmine Sambac, Egyptian Jasmine, Turkish Rose, Moroccan Rose, Indian Tuberose, Orange Blossom and Milky Toffee Elixir.

From darkness into light. Under lock and tasseled key, the flacon is carved with the Achilles Shield as a symbol of protection and finished with monogram-engraved gunmetal details. A smiling skull rises like a monument atop a black lacquered wooden coffret, illuminating a display of grim magnificence. True luxury should last a lifetime, and as such, Kilian fragrance flacons are designed to be refilled.

By Kilian Woman in Gold & By Kilian Dark Knight Klimt2.jpg

Kilian Hennessy celebrates ten years of existence of his perfume brand By Kilian and presents a new collection called From Dusk till Dawn, inspired by gold and paying hommage to the Austrian symbolist painter Gustav Klimt.

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.

Kilian Hennessy

By Kilian has released a new oriental unisex fragrance in the Memento Mori series called Black Phantom.

A ghostly pirate treasure-ship which forever silently cruises the Seven Seas without wind or air, but with her empty sable sails drenched in perfume – and the eerie clash of spectral cutlasses still resounding from her decks. Kilian Hennessy intrepidly explores these dream-like visions in a unique, surreal & supremely sophisticated new gourmand-woodsy fragrance. He weaves in, too, the dark and ancient concept of the Memento Mori: the death that sits unseen beside us in this life.
