Inspired by the cities of New York and Paris respectively, the two new fragrances by KILIAN PARIS, Apple Brandy on the Rocks and L’Heure Verte are the olfactive soundtrack to nightlife’s liberation to come.
Apple Brandy on the Rocks
Apple Brandy on the Rocks, with its signature “on the rocks” accord, is inspired by this all-American apple-based liquor in its chicest, coolest incarnation, while L’Heure Verte is a hymn to absinthe, a legendary Parisian-liquor. The duo joins The Liquors olfactive family, a series of fragrances evoking founder Kilian Hennessy’s heritage as heir to France’s storied cognac making family. Instantly recognizable, each perfume flacon feels like a weighted classic tumbler, engraved with an abstract ‘K’ motif to reflect light at all angles.
’Heure Verte mirrors uniquely Parisian inductions and illusions, wild nights and pleasures. Built upon patchouli, its opening notes based on absinthe essence set the tone.
L’Heure Verte is named after the traditional French equivalent of ‘Happy Hour’, that early evening window of time when absinthe was served upon sugar into a glass and swirled with a spoon in a slow-paced ritual. The liquid turns pastel green; this hue reappears in L’Heure Verte’s own perfume elixir, an entirely naturally derived color: tender like a Parisian haze, or a Van Gogh painting come to life.
A first-time collaboration between Founder Kilian Hennessy and French perfumer Mathieu Nardin, L’Heure Verte expresses Paris at its best— indulgent and life-changing in its luxuries and wonderful illusions.
Every city has its highs. New York and Paris, celebrated in Apple Brandy on the Rocks and L’Heure Verte are ever-ready urban icons, and when night falls, sure to have these drinks serving the party.
