After two years of absence and intense efforts, five of the nine fragrances of Kilian's L'Oeuvre Noire collection are back exclusively at Nose, in their 50ml refill size.
This collection signed by the French perfumery house results from an alchemical work around love, in all its forms and in all its stages.
With its breath of fresh air brought by the essential oils of lemon and mandarin, Prelude to Love is the olfactory memory of the first encounter. Unlike love at first sight, the scent is delicate, beckoning for a long, courting romance. From across the room, a stare lingers long and languid like iris butter.
As the "femme fatale" of flowers, the tuberose plays the star role in the perfume Beyond Love. This flower with narcotic powers obsesses her admirers to the point of entrancement with tuberose concrete and absolute captivating at the heart. Creamy jasmine and coconut facets float on the artifice.
Sweet Redemption is the ultimate balance of the spirit and the senses, fleshed out of a musical floral vanilla harmony and composed of bitter orange leaf essence and orange blossom absolute, comforting vanilla-tinged balsams, benzoin from Laos and bitter myrrh. This oriental love philter announces a new beginning.
Passion that veers dangerously, Cruel Intentions is an animal fragrance concealing unspoken desire. This fragrance exposes floral rose absolute to a primal pitch, its thorns padded with powdery violet. Papyrus, gaiac, vetiver and bergamot essences lend a sexy quality–the sound of leather lashing on wood.
Touch the sky with A Taste of Heaven, an explosion of lavender and absinthe enriched by amber notes. Aromatic, warm vanilla strikes an unexpected contrast with a fresh floral burst of geranium and rose. Bergamot essence drives the opening, while tawny amber and sensuous wood leave an unmistakable aftertaste.
