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.

By Kilian Gold Knight for Men

Created by Pascal Gaurin, Gold Knight found it’s inspiration in Gustav Klimt’s Golden Knight painting from 1903. The composition is based on the contrast between freshness and warmth, with honey and anise underlined by bergamot, patchouli and vanilla.

By Kilian Woman in Gold for Women

Created by Calice becker, By Kilian Woman in Gold is a chypre/floral perfume. Woman in Gold opens with a perfectly balanced fresh bergamot notes mixed with floral accords of roses and vanilla absolute. The base delights with a pleasant aroma made of patchouli and akigalawood notes. The scent was inspired by the portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, also known as the ‘Austrian Mona Lisa’ or ‘Golden Aldele’.

By Kilian Gold KnightThe Art Nouveau luxurious perfume cases decorated in gold also evoke Klimt’s works and were inspired by the beautiful Byzantine mosaics the Viennese painter saw at the Basilica of Santa Vitale in Ravenna.

By Kilian Woman in Gold is available as 50 and 250ml Eau de Parfum.
