Kilian Hennessy's Inspiration:
Inspired by the citiy of Paris, KILIAN PARIS introduces its new addition to the Liquors olfactive family: L’Heure Verte, an olfactive soundtrack to nightlife’s liberation to come. 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.
Absinthe essence opens L’Heure Verte with an instant head twist into a nostalgic heart of violet leaf and licorice root absolute. Its dry-down articulates a unique and precisely chosen facet of patchouli that resonates throughout, and blends into a trio of earthy woods along with vetiver and sandalwood. 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.
