Kilian Hennessy's Inspiration: Single Malt is an homage to whisky and the London dwellers who’ve imbibed the prized brown alcohol for hundreds of years.
The Perfume: The unique smell of a 20-year aged Single Malt at the opening is driven by a single perfect whiskey accord. The golden reflection of wheat absolut flirts with sweet yet sophisticated drunken plum at the heart. Wood-forward, the drydown wafts with a lingering from oak barrels, softened by vanilla and tolu balm. Intoxicatingly neat.
Perfume notes: Whiskey, Plum, Vanilla
Olfactive Family: Cellars - Woods in all their forms - from sandalwood to cedarwood, from patchouli to Vetyver - but always with a Kilian twist: rum, coffee, cacao, cognac, whisky, as a reminder of Kilian Hennessy's heritage.
Perfumer: Sidonie Lancesseur.
