French niche line By Kilian has launched From Dusk Till Dawn, a new duo of fragrances celebrating the brand's 10th anniversary. Woman in Gold and Gold Knight were inspired by artist Gustav Klimt and fin de siècle Vienna.
Woman in Gold ~ A gourmand oriental developed by perfumer Calice Becker. "A perfume as complex and dazzling as the woman who wears it. A magnificent collector's edition coffret, beautifully embellished in homage to Klimt's unique signature style and masterful use of gold leaf, to house Woman in Gold. [...] The notes conjure, in scent, the delicate gold leafing and play between light and shadow, for which the painting is celebrated. The petal-y rose heart depicts all of the facets of the rose. Finally, vanilla absolute's unctuosity appears generously in the drydown, adorned by an exclusive patchouli molecule, the Akigalawood." Additional notes include bergamot, mandarin, geranium and tonka bean.
Gold Knight ~ A woody oriental developed by perfumer Pascal Gaurin. "Elegant, daring, seductive, bold. A magnificent collector's edition coffret, beautifully embellished in homage to Klimt's unique signature style and masterful use of gold leaf, to house Gold Knight. [...] Inspired by the dashing, golden-armored 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." Additional notes include cinnamon and honey.
By Kilian Woman in Gold and Gold Knight are $295 each for 50 ml Eau de Parfum, or $780 for the 250 ml crystal carafe.
