Woman in Gold By Kilian

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.

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.

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.

boucheron-quatre-absolu-nuit

A new Boucheron fragrance is aways very exiting! Introducing the Boucheron Quatre fragrance for Woman in 2015, created by Nathalie Gracia-Cetto, was modern and daring olfactory interpretation of the Maison Boucheron’s iconic Quatre ring. Strongly assertive and contemporary, it reveals the strenght of character of those who wear it.

After last years Quatre Intense, Maison Boucheron is celebrating a new evening version, even more sophisticated. Quatre Absolu de Nuit, is the olfactory interpretation of the modern and bold iconic ring Boucheron is shrouded in mystery.

Boucheron Quatre Absolu de Nuit for Men

Quatre Absolu de Nuit for Men: a woody-oriental Eau de Parfum, both mysterious and vibrant, sublimated by clary sage, black pepper and Atlas cedar notes. Quatre Absolu de Nuit for men is a fragrance that we owe to the perfumer Jacques Huclier, a well-known designer from the great Maison Givaudan.

The latter chose to dare bold biases and assembled several diametrically opposed ingredients. He started the scent of Quatre Absolue de Nuit for Men by Italian lemon, a fresh and citrus ingredient, combined with more aromatic flavors of sage and lavender, two great classics of men’s perfumery. Nevertheless, this initial freshness is quickly counterbalanced by vibrant, charismatic and spicy notes of patchouli, black pepper and nutmeg. Thus, the initial clarity of this perfume is quickly associated with the incandescence of spices. The whole thing ends up being won by more masculinity. A woody trail of cedar, vetiver and vanilla prevails, creating the addiction of a simple breath.

Boucheron Quatre Absolu de Nuit for Women

Signed by perfumer Nathalie Gracia-Cetto, a very famous nose of the house Givaudan, Quatre Absolu de Nuit for Women: a floriental Eau de Pafum, both sensual and captivating, sublimated by bergamot, pear in syrup and vanilla notes. This one has chosen to work around exceptional raw materials and assembled them with extreme minutia, as could the best jewelers of the house Boucheron.

The whole is flying over a citrus freshness dominated by the presence of bergamot from Italy. Pink berries counterbalance this sensation by more heat while the whole is immediately coated with bitter almond. The gourmandise of Quatre Absolu de Nuit for Women is then relayed by a heart more fruity and floral, assembling jasmine and juicy pear. Finally, a more enveloping and delicate background takes over. Tonka bean is associated with amber woods as well as vanilla and sandalwood. The result is a terribly tempting, gourmand and irresistible perfume.

Baldessarini introduces a new precious masculine fragrance Ambre Oud. The oud note in a perfume symbolizes its priceless attitude, a breathtaking and a long-lasting aroma.

Baldessarini crafts sophisticated, elegant, yet classic perfumes that evoke and awaken temptations.

Baldessarini Ambre Oud is the new modern interpretation of the famous Baldessarini Ambre from 2007, that aims more at the younger generation, is more elegant but not overwhelming. For the first time in the brand’s history, Ambre Oud comes as an Eau de Parfum concentration.
