For Kilian Hennessy, the eighth heir to the famous Cognac house - Hennessy, the best way to escape the shadow of his own family is to rise above what he already has and use his own name - Kilian to build a legendary brand. Kilian studied the semantics of scents searching for a kind of "common language" between humans and gods. In 2007, Kilian Paris was founded, continuing the family's tradition of producing luxury goods and pursuing Kilian’s desire: Bringing perfume back to its inherent values. Most of his childhood memories are associated with the family's famous Cognac cellars, so many of his creations also retain that characteristic. That is also one of the reasons why Kilian Paris is so unique and special.
