Kilian Hennessy, heir to the Hennessy cognac family, is a perfumer whose fragrances come in swanky black packaging. He looks kind of faux-decadent, in a good way. I would totally go shopping with him, at the very least. Here is Hint Magazine‘s description of his newest perfume, called “Prelude to Love: Invitation.”
Prelude to Love: Invitation ($225 for 50 ml, $2,500 for a liter barrel) keeps lockstep with its brethren in its ridiculous name and orgiastic theme, but it’s instantly forgivable once we smell the contents. Inspired by a Rimbaud poem, it’s flavored like a leaf-flavored pastille pierced with lemon pepper, an off-limits candy greenness reminiscent of when you start to feel naughty down there. At Bergdorf Goodman.
Hahahaha! Check out his other “quietly lewd” fragrances here.
