KILIAN Playing with the Devil EDP 50ml
"My newest scent, PLAYING WITH THE DEVIL, was created, as many of my previous scents, with perfumer Calice Becker. This fragrance is part of the "In the Garden of Good and Evil" collection, all composed around the idea of "forbidden fruits."" - Kilian Hennessy
PLAYING WITH THE DEVIL is a fruity animalic fragrance built on a set of contrasts and oppositions to express the wink expressed in the name.
In the opening, an overdose of fruity notes - Blood Orange, Blackcurrant buds, White Peach and Lychee - combined with hot spices - Black Pepper from Madagascar and Pimento Berries – bring the olfactory "forbidden fruit" signature.
The heart is a woodsy accord - Cedar, Sandalwood, Patchouli - dressed by the femininity of the Rose of May and the more sensual femininity of the Jasmine Sambac from India.
In the dry down, Cistus and Ambrarome were overdosed in a classic oriental accord - Tonka Bean, Benzoin, Vanilla - to bring out the animalic sensuality.
Calice Becker describes PLAYING WITH THE DEVIL as "a summer walk in the woods at dusk".
