Scent Type: Warm & Sweet Gourmands
Key Notes: Rum, Coffee, Vetiver
Fragrance Description: This scent contains notes of rum accord from Martinique, akin to “pirates water,” which spikes the scent of strong coffee at its heart, balanced by vetiver essence. A deadly bite of cyanide accord hides menacingly, like the smile from death itself. Sugar cane and dark creamy sandalwood notes also assure a trying journey holds a sweet reward.
About the Bottle: The bottles of Kilian’s Cellars family are adorned with a distinctive black lacquer and meticulously engraved on each side with the representation of the Achilles shield. Like Kilian Hennessy says, “In perfumery, it is as much about seduction as it is about protection.”
About the Fragrance: Black Phantom “MEMENTO MORI” is part of the Kilian Cellars family.
