Inspiration: In the heart of a dense forest, the thick smokiness of scented wood is reminiscent of oak barrels that keep delicate distilled Cognac from spoil–a deepening amber-colored liquid matures day by day.
Fragrance story: A heady combination of rum and manzanate entices the senses at the opening. Apple Brandy is ‘the liquor of the woods’, one might imagine tapping from enchanted trees in myth-based lore. One of Kilian’s most personal creations–the syrup-laden smell of alcohol is a fond childhood memory, perfectly recreated with vanilla and labdanum, punctuating the distinctive personality of the fragrance.
Key notes: Vanilla, Labdanum
Olfactive Family: Cellars - Woods in all their forms - from sandalwood to cedarwood, from patchouli to Vetyver - but always with a Kilian twist: rum, coffee, cacao, cognac, whisky, as a reminder of Kilian Hennessy's heritage.
Perfumer: Sidonie Lancesseur.
