“I want to put perfumery back on its pedestal by going back to the truth about perfume; back to the way perfume was made in the late 19th and the early 20th century, but adding a contemporary twist at the same time.” —Kilian Hennessy
What it is: Half flirty, half fiery and a little fierce, Playing with the Devil opens with tart blood orange and rosy lychee set ablaze by pimento berries.
Fragrance story: Created by perfumer Calice Becker, Playing with the Devil teases the animal out of the fruit. It is part of the In the Garden of Good and Evil collection, where the myth of original sin is found at the heart of the narrative. In 2007, Kilian Hennessy launched his own namesake brand with the ambition of reflecting not only his distinct personality, but also to achieve a perfect alliance between elegance and uncompromising luxury.
