“I want to put perfumery back on its pedestal by going back to the truth about perfume; back to the way perfume was made in the late 19th and the early 20th century, but adding a contemporary twist at the same time.” —Kilian Hennessy
What it is: Vodka on the Rocks opens with an iced effect expressed through an accord of cold spices and aldehydes.
Fragrance story: Created by perfumer Sidonie Lancesseur, Vodka on the Rocks evokes the smell of vodka cooled by ice. It is part of the Addictive State of Mind collection, which is built around olfactive dependencies, an obsessive luxurious withdrawal into your own secret world of dreams and fantasy. In 2007, Kilian Hennessy launched his own namesake brand with the ambition of reflecting not only his distinct personality, but also to achieve a perfect alliance between elegance and uncompromising luxury.
