Kilian Hennessy’s Inspiration:
Sacred Wood by KILIAN PARIS conjures the mythical side of a fragrant wood leading East, honoring both nature’s sensory pleasures through the art of perfumes as well as one of the most coveted—and forbidden—perfume ingredients in the world: sandalwood from Mysore, India.
The fragrance recreates the incredible complexity of this raw material, drawing an olfactive loop around its spicy, woodsy and milky facets making it a cult ingredient in modern perfumery and ancient Eastern ritual. Opening with Ambrette Seed Absolute and Carrot Seed Oil for a touch of earth and spice, the fragrance unfolds into a deep sandalwood accord: Amyris Oil, a powerful woody note blends with Cedarwood. Myrrh and Copahu Balsam Oil add warmth as well as a balmy aspect, a malted milk vapor lifting the senses like incense.
