About Kilian HENNESSY

KIlian Hennessy stepped away from his family’s world-famous cognac business to forge his own path as a creator of alluring scents. A two-year period with Christian Dior in New York gave him a taste for the city, and he now divides his time between there and France, where he founded his own business, Kilian Paris. With the different cultures in each city contributing different facets to his unique outlook, we spoke to Kilian about creative life between Paris and New York, how his identity is shaped in each culture, and the sensory inspiration they possess.
