KILIAN Vodka on the Rocks EDP 50ml
VODKA ON THE ROCKS is the first scent of a series of perfumes that will be sold exclusively in our KILIAN retail stores. The second scent: APPLE BRANDY ~ New York will be launched in November for the opening of our store in Manhattan.
VODKA ON THE ROCKS has been created as a limited edition for our very discerning clients from the Crocus Mall. I feel deeply connected to Russia on many levels.
For this scent, I asked Sidonie Lancessseur, the perfumer behind STRAIGHT TO HEAVEN, White Cristal; CRUEL INTENTIONS, Tempt Me; INCENSE OUD and APPLE BRANDY, t
o create – to invent – the smell of vodka cooled by ice. Sidonie has a very unique way of composing fragrances through short formulas with a strong character.
In order to create the sensation of a “vodka on the rocks”, Sidonie combined cold spices –
Coriander, Cardamom – with aldehyde in order to create an “ice effect”. The heart is a bitter
accord of rhubarb mixed with clear floral notes of Rose and Lily of the valley to translate the feeling of white alcohol. In the drydown, Oakmoss, Ambroxan and Sandalwood bring an iodized effect, yet comfortable and lightly leathery.
