Fragrance Creator Kilian Makes Personal Appearance at Saks Houston
Saks Fifth Avenue in Houston is hosting fragrance designer Kilian Hennessy this Thursday, October 4, 2012 between 2:00pm and 4:00pm. Meet the creator, Kilian, for a private fragrance consultation, see his new fragrances, Asia Tales: Water Calligraphy and Bamboo Harmony, and explore his best selling scents such as Incense Oud, L'Oveure Noire, and Arabian Nights. Saks Fifth Avenue Houston has an exquisite Kilian shop on level one offering the full line of fragrances and candles by Kilian.
Heir to a long line of cognac makers that were pioneers in luxury, the grandson of the founder of the LVMH Group, Kilian decided to take up the torch of family tradition.
His childhood haunts included the family cellars in Cognac. Before graduating from CELSA (School of Higher Studies in the Information and Communication Sciences at the Sorbonne) he wrote a thesis on the semantics of odors in search of a language common to gods and mortals. In search of the "angels share", he encountered the world of perfumery. The "angels share" is what the House of Hennessy calls the percentage that ? inexplicably ? evaporates from cognac cellars, like an offering to the gods. Kilian's fragrances are redolent of the sugar in alcohol and the wood of cognac barrels.
After graduating from a university program in communication and language sciences, he trained with the greatest noses in perfumery and worked for the most prestigious perfume houses such as
Christian Dior, Paco Rabanne, Alexander McQueen and Giorgio Armani.
In 2007, he launched his own brand with a collection that not only reflects his personality yet also
achieves a perfect alliance between elegance and uncompromising luxury.
