Kilian Hennessy's Inspiration: As heir to one of France’s most renowned families of cognac makers, Kilian Hennessy watched his grand-father crafts yearly editions of cultivated elixirs, ‘Special Blends’ inside sugar-soaked wood barrels of cognac. With its incredible complex of woods, the new Special Blend Love, don’t be shy Amber & Oud recalls a profound sense of “home” to Kilian Hennessy today.
Love, don’t be shy Amber & Oud draws out a new dimension of a classic icon through the warmth of woods that recall the finest feelings of home, a reflection of the Power of Scents. It completes the collection of Love, don't be shy Special Blends with the most complex variant yet: the legend of the inspiring Middle East, Oud resonating with a vibrant Amber accord.
The Perfume: The perfume begins with bright Bulgarian Rose oil and glorious Orange Flower absolute from Morocco, blooming with refinement and sensuality into the unforgettably delicious Marshmallowy accord. In this heart begins the opening notes of a rich Ambery accord, boldly with intensified spices and resins. Amber and Oud are the core resonance, with a touch of Akigalawood— known as “transparent Patchouli”—lending a captivating paradox of lightness and force to this Special Blend.
