Fragrance Description: This scent contains notes of rum accord from Martinique, akin to "pirates water," which spikes the scent of strong coffee at its heart, balanced by vetiver essence. A deadly bite of cyanide accord hides menacingly, like the smile from death itself. Sugar cane and dark creamy sandalwood notes also assure a trying journey holds a sweet reward.
About the Bottle: The bottles of Kilian's Cellars family are adorned with a distinctive black lacquer and meticulously engraved on each side with the representation of the Achilles shield. Like Kilian Hennessy says, "In perfumery, it is as much about seduction as it is about protection."
About the Fragrance: Black Phantom "MEMENTO MORI" is part of the Kilian Cellars family. Woodsy perfumes in all their forms—from sandalwood to cedarwood, from patchouli to vetiver—but always with a Kilian twist: rum, coffee, cacao, cognac, whisky as a reminder of Kilian Hennessy's heritage. The Perfumer is Sidonie Lancesseur.
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.
