Cologne is classic. Kologne, shield of protection by KILIAN PARIS is next generation.
Splash into a Kool summer with an incredible sensory trip across freshness, intensity and time: Kologne, shield of protection takes a classic out to party.
Perfume is like a shield of protection to Founder Kilian Hennessy, emboldening our unconscious fears with a sense of security. Kologne, shield of protection is the ultimate olfactive expression of this belief. He creates a scent for feeling protected anywhere, anytime, as an aura of purity and vitality in an instant spritz.
Cologne is named after the German city, where Italian perfumer Giovanni Maria Farina created the citrus, rosemary and alcohol blend Eau de Cologne in 1709; yet its origins go deeper.
Eau de Cologne was inspired by recipes from the Middle Ages, “versatile remedies” called Aquae Mirabile, or mixtures of antiseptic aromatic herbs used to “cleanse” the air. It also referenced L’Eau de la Reine de Hongrie, an herb blend used in the fairytale ‘Sleeping Beauty’ to awaken the legendary princess.
Founder Kilian Hennessy had been developing his own cologne for years, sparked by a desire to return to the roots and meaning of this unique genre of perfume. Together with perfumer Calice Becker, his own ‘shield of protection’ has been forged.
A playful garden of delight, Kologne, shield of protection debuts with luminous citrus notes of green mandarin, bitter orange leading into a heart of rosemary, mint and neroli. A sophisticated, woodsy dry-down is built upon cedarwood, cashmeran and a distinctive‘sap’ accord composed of green vegetal notes.
Kologne, shield of protection’s perfume bottle is vivid blue, colored like the perfect summer night pool party with gun metal hardware accents. The bottle features KILIAN PARIS’s signature style: angular and elegant with art deco design undertones, as well as its iconic motif along the sides: concentric circles inspired by the divine shield crafted for the ancient Greek warrior, Achilles.
Jump into summer with Kologne, shield of protection. An olfactive armor, a source of personal power, and an immediate uplift for the Kraziest KILIAN PARIS summer.
