Fragrance brand Kilian will open their first New York store late November at 804 Washington Street in the Meatpacking District. Helmed by Kilian Hennessy—yep, that Hennessy—the brand will launch a series of scents inspired by the city. The first is called Apple Brandy: one part Big Apple-inspired, one part familial cognac-reference.
The 450-square-foot store will have a "living room feel" similar to the company's debut unit in Moscow. However, Kilian wanted to make sure that the store reflected its neighborhood, so they are leaving some brick exposed, as is the Meatpacking way.
