German designer Philipp Plein has made a name for himself in the fashion world for two decades. Based in Switzerland, the collection comprises men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and accessories, all distinguished by an unconventional and non-conformist style combined with impeccable craftsmanship.
And today the highly successful self-made entrepreneur lands in the perfume industry – with his very own idea of what fragrances have to be. In his dreams he saw clearly that one day he would incorporate the unbridled luxury and edgy style of the Philipp Plein brand into the world of fragrances.
For Philipp Plein, a 100% independent and self-financed brand, debut in the perfume sector is an important step. Philipp Plein Parfums, a new company based in Geneva, was founded to develop an exclusive and successful perfume business for the Philipp Plein brand.
Yesterday, at an exclusive party and intimate dinner in Plein’s Townhouse in New York, a new and very attractive venture for the brand was revealed: the first Philipp Plein fragrance. The fragrance was created as a co-creation that Philipp Plein himself and the internationally recognized master perfumer Alberto Morillas have brought to life.
Presented in a Parfum luxury concentration, The $Kull scent is created to evoke a luxurious and sexy olfactive tattoo, leaving a powerful and addictive imprint on the skin. Composed of spicy, woody-leathery and animal accents, the fragrance boasts a potent trail of black pepper, cardamom and flamboyant watery notes, boosted with the richness of dark woods and leather, and ‘pleined’ with the luscious scent of Bourbon vanilla and black amber notes.
Philipp Plein has chosen the skull, the most iconic and very strong symbol of the brand, to hit the perfumery world and mark this unprecedented happening in its history. The flacon is a sculptural and impressive piece of art, unprecedented in the world of fragrances. (Remember last year’s By Kilian Dark Lord Ex Tenebris Lux? Also a creation by Alberto Morillas). A tridimensional, multifaceted head, sculpted like a black diamond and carved from a massive block of black-lacquered glass. A true masterpiece, handcrafted from the inside out.
Philipp Plein The $Kull is available as 125ml Parfum Spray. Priced at 350 Euro and to be launched the first week of December 2019, The $Kull Art Edition will be initially exclusively available at Philipp Plein selected boutiques and online in Europe and United States, followed by a worldwide rollout starting January 2020, including the most prestigious department stores.
