Gold Knight Refill by Kilian Paris
The Cellars Collection
50ml Eau de Parfum
The Gold Knight refill is an innovative new refill bottle allows for an easy spill-proof process, with packaging slimmed down for minimal environmental waste. The cutting-edge dispenser stops transferring the perfume automatically, once the container is full to refill easily at home. True luxury should last a lifetime, and as such, all Kilian fragrance bottles are designed to be refilled.
Inspired by the dashing, golden-armoured chevalier in Klimt’s 1902 Beethoven Frieze, Gold Knight contrasts the addictive dark sensuousness of patchouli with the effervescent brightness of bergamot, and warm golden shimmer of vanilla and anise
Head Notes – Star anise, Bergamot
Heart Notes – Honey accord, Cinnamon
Base Notes – Vanilla, Patchouli
Heir to a long line of cognac makers who were pioneers in luxury, Kilian decided to take up the torch of family tradition. Creating a new luxury brand was definitely a challenge worthy of his predecessors.
His childhood haunts included the family cellars in Cognac. Before graduating from CELSA, he wrote a thesis on the semantics of scent, in search of a ‘language’ common to gods and mortals. Remembering the “angels’ share” as part of his heritage, he was led into the world of perfumery. The “angels’ share” is what the House of Hennessy calls the percentage that – inexplicably – evaporates from cognac cellars, like an offering to the gods.
Many of Kilian’s fragrances today carry this childhood memory as they are reminiscent of the sugar in the alcohol and the wood of the cognac barrels
