Heir to a long line of industrialists who had successfully ventured into the luxury sector with their cognac, Kilian wanted to carry on the family spirit. Designing a new luxury brand was a challenge worthy of the roots that saw him grow up!
In fact, it was the scent of his childhood spent close to the family winery in Cognac that haunted him when he chose to work on his dissertation at Celsa, on the semantics of odors in search of a language common to men and gods.
In his search for the «Angel’s Share», he encountered the world of perfume. La part des Anges» is what Hennessy calls the vapors that evaporate from the cellars, like an offering to the gods. The sugar of the alcohol and the wood of the cellars are the same as those found in KILIAN fragrances.
