Kilian Hennessy, born into one of France’s most illustrious dynasties in fine liquors, translates sensibility and vision inherited from his ancestors into the realm of perfume. A culture of pursuing ultimate luxury and his audacious, rule-breaking approach define his namesake brand: KILIAN.
Founded over a decade ago in 2007 by Kilian Hennessy, KILIAN launched with an opus of ten fragrances recounting love and its prohibitions, sin and innocence, darkness and light—dualities that continue to shape KILIAN creations, aesthetics and storytelling.
Today, KILIAN offers a menu of fragrances within four olfactive families—The Fresh, The Narcotics, The Cellars and The Smokes. From the dark cognac cellars of his childhood memories, to Paris most elegant evenings where desires roam free…KILIAN explores the very space that fragrance touches so powerfully, invisibly, and irrevocably.
WHY DO WE SELL DECANTS?
Because there are so many fragrances and so little time! We sell samples which are a wonderful way to try many fragrances before deciding on the full bottle you know you will love. Samples offer the ability to wear perfume for a week or more and decide if that fragrance is right for you. Once you sample fragrances and find ones that you love, you can buy a full bottle from another E-tailer, department store or perfume boutique.
WHAT YOU RECEIVE: You pick the scent and the size, then we decant from the original bottle or vessel into a brand new sterile glass spray (please note 1ml samples are not sprays). We label each decant and carefully package to prevent leakage. To assure you that you get the exact amount listed for each decant bottle, we use medical measuring devices so that each bottle is filled the exact amount. Please note, there is air space left at the top of the bottles which is important for pressurization in atomizers. Air space does not mean you received less than the amount listed. Please understand before purchasing, you will NOT receive an original bottle of perfume from the manufacturer. However, you WILL receive a re-packaged, unaltered, freshly and expertly hand-decanted scent.
DECANTING PROCESS: Each vessel is hand decanted after payment and moments before shipping from our bottles of authentic fragrances. We use sterile medical pipettes designated for each fragrance, or the perfume is sprayed or poured directly from the original bottle.
