The Icon set Woman in gold
WOMAN IN GOLD is a perfume as complex and dazzling as both the women who wear it and those within Gustave Klimt’s voluptuous paintings. It comes with a travel spray featuring a textured fresco—in a palate of black and gold—inspired by the work of the celebrated Viennese fin-de-siècle artist. The Icon Sets shake it up by coupling the KILIAN perfume bottle, instead, with an equally distinctive—yet smaller in size—refillable travel spray. Like talismans that travel with you throughout your day, each is a highly aesthetic object for getting grounded in the simple, tactile pleasure of something beautiful, weighted and personally meaningful.
The notes conjure, in scent, the delicate gold leafing and play between light and shadow, for which the painting is celebrated. Perfumer Calice Becker was inspired by the fascinating contrast between the painting’s facets, which she describes as “texturized and brilliant, rich and voluptuous. Its zesty luminosity is the fragrant expression of this brightness. The petal-y rose heart depicts all of the facets of the rose. Finally, vanilla absolute’s unctuosity appears generously in the drydown, adorned by an exclusive patchouli molecule, the Akigalawood.
