To drive good nightlife, music and perfume go hand-in-hand. This relationship between the two worlds has allowed luxury scent-maker KILIAN PARIS to team up with French Montana to reimagine the brand’s staple line, Angels’ Share.
Given his eight-generation lineage to the legendary cognac brand, Angels’ Share is founder Kilian Hennessy’s most intimate fragrance yet. He explains, “It took me 14 years to create a cognac-inspired scent. It is the perfect bridge between my family Hennessy heritage and the KILIAN PARIS heritage I am hoping to build.”
Crafted from a blend based on the essence of the cognac-making process, the scent boasts notes of hazelnut, cinnamon, oak absolute and tonka bean lending the fragrance a unique smell as well as its naturally derived caramel color. The name itself references the cognac’s partial evaporation within the barrels during the aging process, referred to as “la part des anges” or “angles’ share”.
The latest bottle arrives in a transparent bottle, chiseled with intricately sharp edges and sealed with a golden-tone disc that resembles a vinyl record. The engraved chains serve as a nod to French Montana’s personal style as well as KILIAN PARIS’ signature motif seen on many of his products. Speaking on the significance of the latest collaboration French Montana said, “Kilian put his heart in this fragrance; I put my heart in my music. We’re coming to you with something we believe in.”
