Accessories are breaking new grounds these days. From temporary tattoos to scented jewelry! Fragrance brand Kilian launched a line of scented jewelry. Pieces are available for both men and women.
How does scented jewelry work? It’s all in the material. The silk and leather cords used contain little capsules that gradually release the scent. Hidden porous ceramic plates were added, so the perfume can be reapplied. Scents last up to one year.
The actual scents for the collection are inspired by Kilian’s first perfume collection, L’oeuvre Noire. The Jewels of L’oeuvre Noire for women, and The Leathers of L’oeuvre Noire for men. This brings a nostalgic twist to the new idea. The best part is you pick the piece and the scent. The pieces with a ceramic pendent can be infused with any of Kilian’s 29 signature fragrances. For pre-scented items a men’s leather bracelet comes in five scents and the women’s tassel necklace in 6.
As far as aesthetic of the jewelry goes, the collection was inspired by Homer’s Iliad. With geometric designs, shield pendents, and tassels, the pieces do have a Greek vibe going on. The necklaces are platted in 18-kart gold and the bracelets in 24-kart. If you want a silver-like finish pieces are available in rhodium so they won’t tarnish.
When talking about the inspiration of his line designer Kilian Hennessy said “It shows perfectly how intricate perfume and jewelry can become, I’m hoping to convey what Kilian stands for: perfume as art.” In the same Forbes article he admits “Making perfume into something visible has been my obsession these past few years.”
The prices are of the higher range, with Scented Locket Necklace going for $245 and the Onyx Tassel Necklace for $465. But that is the price you pay for art. Kilian definitely created something worth the splurge. The collection is now available for purchase on Kilian’s website.
