Perfume as an art: inside Kilian’s celebration at Melbourne’s Baroq House

Perfume is an art, and if anyone knows this to be true it’s Kilian Henessey. The fragrance house, best known for evocative scents such as Good Girl Gone Bad and Straight to Heaven, celebrated the art of perfumery with custom cocktails and canapés under dim lights in Melbourne’s back alley bar, Baroq House. Cocktails were paired to fragrances, bringing to life the essence of the scent.

With artist Zoe Croggon, musicians Didirri and Ro, along with Mossy and photographer Amelia Dowd, amongst our nearest and dearest we partied into the night.

Hosted by our own Kitty Callaghan, the event spoke to the link between perfume as an art, photography and collage, and the seduction of scent.
