"One of my earliest childhood memories is going into the Hennessy family cellars in Cognac," describes Kilian Hennessy. "There is a very strong woodsy, vanilla smell that is a combination of the oak barrels with the sugar of the spirits." Fragrance Story:
Straight to Heaven, white cristal brings a splash of rich dark rum softened by an addictive vanilla and dried fruit, Black Phantom "Memento Mori" expresses the feeling of danger and darkness through a beautiful coffee creation filled with cyanide and rum, Intoxicated is an interpretation to rich Turkish coffee laced with green cardamom as well as spicy cinnamon and hallucinogenic nutmeg, and Gold Knight contrasts the dark sensuousness of patchouli with the effervescent brightness of bergamot, a warm golden shimmer of vanilla and anise. Key Notes:
- Straight to Heaven, white cristal: Patchouli, Nutmeg, Cedarwood
- Black Phantom "Memento Mori": Rum, Coffee, Cyanide
- Intoxicated: Mocha Coffee, Cardamom, Vanilla
- Gold Knight: Bergamot, Honey, Patchouli
Cellars Woods in all their forms from sandalwood to cedarwood, from patchouli to Vetyver - but always with a Kilian twist: rum, coffee, cacao, cognac, whisky, as a reminder of Kilian Hennessy's heritage. Perfumer:
- Straight to Heaven, white cristal / Intoxicated: Calice Becker
- Black Phantom "Memento Mori": Sidonie Lancesseur
- Gold Knight: Pascal Gaurin
