Black Phantom EDP 50ml
BLACK PHANTOM – “MEMENTO MORI” is a blend of coffee notes, the dusky shade of a pirate galleon and the new magnificent KILIAN fragrance.
Traditionally, coffee is drunk: as black as night, as hot as Hell, as sweet as love.
Some say the word "coffee" derives from an Arabic meaning "the dark one".
BLACK PHANTOM – “MEMENTO MORI” opens with an accord of 'Shin Shin',that fiery drink of strong coffee laced with Caribbean rum that was quaffed at the feasts of the old pirate kings. But the coffee hides a deadly secret: what appears to be the fragrance of almonds is actually the scent of the bite of deadly sparkling cyanide. A Memento Mori indeed!
The aromatic bitterness of the coffee is enhanced by the earthy warmth of vetiver from Java. The intoxicating sweetness of the rum is reflected in the luscious scent of sugar cane at the base of the fragrance, blended with darkly fragrant creamy sandalwood. The result is sheer voluptuous sensuality created for those who live for pleasure.
The jet black flacon reposes in a black lacquered coffret from which a smiling skull rises like a monument on a grimly magnificent Jacobean tomb.
