Perfumer Kilian Hennessy Tells Us How to Use Fragrance to Seduce Anyone

We are all about that hair — and makeup too! Here at Stylish, we’ve never seen a hairstyle or makeup trend we couldn’t talk about for days on end, so we started a podcast to dish on all the latest beauty news — from hits and misses on the red carpet to celebrity hair and makeup gurus’ dos and don’ts. Each week, Us Weekly executive editor of beauty and style Gwen Flamberg talks with some of the best in the biz about what’s new in hair, makeup and style in our Get Tressed With Us podcast. Listen above!

 

This week, Gwen and senior reporter Travis Cronin welcome perfume creator and head of the Kilian Paris brand Kilian Hennessy. Known to make the sexiest scents on the planet beloved by celebs including Rihanna (who reportedly wears his fragrance Love, Don’t Be Shy), Hennessy gives Us the lowdown on his unique take on the power of fragrance, believing it to be one’s armor and meant to set a vibe rather than invoke a particular aroma.

Of the two scents in the just-launched line, one, Angels’ Share, is inspired by a cognac blend, and even naturally looks like the potion itself. Listen to the episode to hear how this happy accident came about!
