By Kilian will launch Love and Tears (Surrender), the 9th fragrance in the Black Masterpiece / L’Oeuvre Noire series, in September.
Love and Tears, surrender is the last chapter of my « Love » theme and my most personal scent.
4 chapters, 4 olfactive declarations:
Prelude to love, invitation - the innocent invitation of an Iris freshened by citruses
Love, don’t be shy - the devouring passion of an Orange blossom powdered with glazed sugar
Beyond love, prohibited - the forbidden pleasure of a narcotic Tuberose
And now Love and Tears, surrender - the unconditional surrender to love of a Mediterranean Jasmine.
Only the Jasmine flower, with its endless spectrum of facets – citrus, green, floral and animalistic – was able to express the profusion of emotions that I wanted to communicate with this scent: the beginning of love marked with excitement, the fear of the unknown and, ultimately, the surrender to love!
To express this complexity of emotions, I did not want a Jasmine that would smell too composed or too adorned, but rather exaggerated within its two most dramatic facets: erotic and sacred.
Love and Tears is a unisex jasmine soliflore; the notes include bergamot, petit grain, cypress, jasmine, orange blossom, ylang ylang and ciste.
