Kilian Love & Tears, Surrender
The final fragrance in perfumer Kilian Hennessy's Love collection is not to be missed. Launched last month, the intoxicating jasmine-based scent is accented by bergamot, orange blossom, and ylang ylang. According to Hennnessy, the concoction is the most complex of the quartet because it represents the complexity of emotions that one experiences in a loving relationship. "It's the idea that there is both laughter and tears," he says.
