“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: A languid and mysterious scent that is a taste of honey in a veil of smoke, opening with notes of honey laced with sweet spices before finishing with a dry down of dusky incense and lush vanilla.
Fragrance story: Created by perfumer Calice Becker, Back to Black, aphrodisiac is part of the L'Oeuvre Noire collection, Kilian's first collection inspired by French poetry and dark romanticism. 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.
