KILIAN debuts an entirely new collection for young lovers called MY KIND OF LOVE. #bykilian #mykindoflove
Five scents for flirty fun and free play, each is an audacious statement, a truth or dare to love in your very own way.
BOYS—BAD BOYS ARE NO GOOD BUT GOOD BOYS ARE NO FUN
PRINCESS—I DON’T NEED A PRINCE BY MY SIDE TO BE A PRINCESS
KISSING—KISSING BURNS 6.4 CALORIES A MINUTE. WANNA WORKOUT?
ADULTS—LET’S SETTLE THIS ARGUMENT LIKE ADULTS, IN THE BEDROOM, NAKED
MADLY IN LOVE – YES I WAS MADLY IN LOVE BUT THAT WAS YESTERDAY*Not available in the Netherlands
MY KIND OF LOVE is a series of scents to tempt, tease and love in your own way. These are perfumes for having too much fun to care what others think.
What binds the collection is an entirely different olfactive structure than that of the perfumes inKILIAN’s main opus of fragrances. Each blend in MY KIND OF LOVE is remarkably simplex, that— just like the perfumes’ names—kicks instant impact but speaks of something more.
KILIAN founder and creative director Kilian Hennessy explains: “Simplexity is the idea of blendingboth simplicity and complexity. I wanted this collection to have the multi-layered notes andaccords that I’m known for, but built around a key ingredient that’s unusual, surprising, andinstantly recognizable.”
Expect the unexpected at all points of the game, as even the bottle is more than meets the eye. A little bomb of seduction inspired by contemporary art, it is both a mini sculpture and a bold declaration. Grab its weighted sphere on top, turn tradition upside down, and remove the bottom square pedestal for spritzing instant sex appeal.
On the black bottle’s pedestal, each playful phrase is put on graphic exhibition in glossy lipstick red and gold. Available in 30 ml, 50 ml or 100 ml—impulsive grabbing is always welcome.
Perfume gets even more easily Instagram-able with alternative ways for wearing scent as a style obsession, a value near and dear to the KILIAN brand:
A series of scented T-shirts express the core messages of the MY KIND OF LOVE collection. They feature technology to hold the perfume micro-encapsulated within the fabric—and keep it scented up to eight machine washes.
And, supple clutches made of black fabric, adorned with an oversized iconic KILIAN tassel, are designed for day or night; they contain an invisible, scented insert between the liner and fabric.
Seduce in your own style, love like you’ve nothing to lose. A declaration, or a dare? KILIAN’slatest collection is both. This is your kind of love.
BAD BOYS ARE NO GOOD BUT GOOD BOYS ARE NO FUN
The cool, classic and iconic KILIAN bad boy has pure, burning desire in his eyes and a killer dose of sex appeal.
“I wanted BOYS to be both very sexy and very fresh,” describes Kilian Hennessy of a scent made for misbehaving. “For the freshness, we worked on a Cola accord that almost tickles your nose.”
Teaming up with perfumer Alberto Morillas, this instantly recognizable Cola hook is an accord all its own of nutmeg, cinnamon, lime and vanilla. The duo then built a strong drydown of woody notes on overdose. Cedarwood adds earthy sensuality, suggesting way more than just tickles.
Bad boys are our guilty pleasure but, honestly, what would your Saturday night be without them?
I DON’T NEED A PRINCE BY MY SIDE TO BE A PRINCESS
KILIAN amps up the girl power with a scent calling out all fierce females. Gourmand with a kick, PRINCESS is like sipping on a green tea mocha with a tip of ginger on the nose for sassy spice.
A rule-breaking blend to the core, Kilian Hennessy and perfumer Honorine Blanc swirled togethergreen tea and marshmallow for PRINCESS’s yummy main accord.
“It’s perfectly fluffy. There is no darkness or heaviness here,” describes Kilian Hennessy of the totalabsence of patchouli, a note traditionally used in such gourmand and oriental fragrances.“PRINCESS at first seems simple but then there comes a volume and personality that’s just amazing.”
And amazing, she is. Nothing hooks a man, and keeps him hooked, more than a woman whodoesn’t need him.
Prince Charming, take note—this Princess ain’t waiting at home for your comeback call.
KISSING BURNS 6.4 CALORIES A MINUTE. WANNA WORKOUT?
Kissing is delicious. Get off the couch (or, rather, on the couch) and start working out with KILIAN’slatest scent for locking lips. A luscious remix of floral and gourmand notes, it speaks to the most perfect sport for couples with incredible chemistry.
Kilian Hennessy and perfumer Calice Becker dip the racing heart of KISSING in hot milk, with a trail of sugar candy. Sweet, indeed, but the head starts spinning with Lily of the Valley. Happiness rushes in, sparks fly with the sounds of lips against silence, and the kissing just got addictive.
“KISSING is a true unisex fragrance,” Kilian Hennessy describes. “It’s a very unusual contrast of hotmilk and sugar candy with a breeze of fresh air running through it: Lily of the Valley. Just like a great kiss, as the perfume evolves the emotions get more intense.”
Don’t be lazy. Pout the lips and pose the question. When else can you experience something sosweet and burn calories all at the same time?
LET’S SETTLE THIS ARGUMENT LIKE ADULTS, IN THE BEDROOM, NAKED
A scent made for make-up sex, ADULTS gets down to business. Forget relationship therapists and a bookshelf of self-help books, this woodsy and oriental fragrance lets the body do the talking.
“Very sensual and complex, ADULTS is a highly original scent,” explains Kilian Hennessy of his workwith perfumer Pascal Gaurin. “We broke away from the classic, ‘blockbuster’ accords conventionally used in perfumery here.” The result? Hot-sex in a bottle, at the height of earthy and exotic.
A top note of fig milk hits soft like naked skin, then cedar wood and vanilla prolong the experience into much more than six minutes of pleasure.
The solution to all of lovers’ quarrels, a fragrance to end all fighting—it’s time to get reasonableand act like adults.
Seriously, when are you going to grow up and get horizontal?
My Kind Of Love will be available from October 2018 exclusively at Douglas.
