Kilian Hennessy’s Inspiration: A perfume as complex and dazzling as the woman who wears it.
The Perfume: The notes conjure, in scent, the delicate gold leafing and play between light and shadow, for which the painting is celebrated. Perfumer Calice Becker. was inspired by the fascinating contrast between the painting’s facets, which she describes as “texturised and brilliant, rich and voluptuous.” Its zesty luminosity is the fragrant expression of this brightness. The petal-y rose heart depicts all of the facets of the rose. Finally, vanilla absolute’s unctuosity appears generously in the dry-down, adorned by an exclusive patchouli molecule, the Akigalawood.
Perfume notes: Bergamot, Rose, Tonka Bean. Perfumer: Calice Becker.
