Kilian Hennessy pays tribute to his heritage, as heir to the renowned French cognac-making family and to his predilection for the aromatic intoxicants that keep our glasses chinking all night long. A first-time collaboration with French perfumer Benoit Lapouza, Angel’s Share is Kilian Hennessy’s most personal fragrance creation yet. Inspired by Hennessy’s eighth-generation legacy of cognac making, the perfume goes deep into the cellars of the founder’s mind and memory, and into its most mysterious dimension: “la part des anges” or “angels’ share”— a vaporescence of spirits in oak barrels that rises, with time, like a silent offering to the gods.
Angels’ Share contains the essence of Cognac derived from the liquor to lend it a natural caramel color. Opening with cognac oil, upon a blend of oak absolute, cinnamon essence and Tonka bean absolute, the scent’s long-lasting notes of sandalwood, praline and vanilla make for a delicious finish, a rare concoction only angels should experience.
