«You never fall in love with perfection. You can be attracted to someone gorgeous but that’s not what will make you ultimately fall in love with this person. You fall in love with his/her imperfections and what makes them unique to you.» Kilian Hennessy.

KILIAN PARIS crafts in Can’t stop loving You a true love declaration: a perfume celebrating love, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Created by founder Kilian Hennessy in collaboration with perfumer Alberto Morillas, Can’t stop loving You enters the Narcotics olfactive family with, at the centerpiece, North African Orange Blossom. A flower to express the emotion carried by the name of the fragrance, as it is the symbol of eternal love. Alongside with Paradisone, an ethereal jasmine compound suggests pure paradise.

Its heart is incredibly suave, featuring Honey absolute from Provence, a new ingredient in the KILIAN PARIS repertoire, for a delicious French touch. Vanilla absolute from Madagascar adds a doubly gourmand incitement to pleasure, while notes of Oak Moss bring an earthy intensity. Incense extract from Somalia lends sensuality, volume and endless mystery.

To increase the intensity of the desire, Can’t stop loving You is surrounded by one of Kilian Hennessy’s favorite ingredients, Labdanum cistus absolute. A strongly ambery, balsamic-like gum, hand harvested for more than 100 years in Andalusia, Southwest of Spain – a place dear to the founder, where he decided to settle down. Labdanum cistus protects itself from the sun and heat by producing a gum that envelops twings and leaves, a symbol of natural truth. Being also one of the most sensual raw material in perfumery, it brings warmth and an animalic dimension to the fragrance: «It is an ingredient that, worn on skin, has nothing comparable, it is sensuality in its purest state,» explains Kilian Hennessy.

This feature echo founder’s belief inspired by the divine Achilles’ shield, also engraved on the endlessly refillable perfume bottle, that a fragrance can be as much a weapon of seduction as a protective armor. Both luminous and somber, Can’t stop loving You is a narcotic floral fragrance that puts peace in danger.

LoL, Sandra
