    Well, the family patriarch Kilian Hennessey died in October this year at the ripe old age of 103. Could it be this person theyre referring to, or did they specifically state "Head Perfumer of By Kilian" in their piece?

    Oh, and forgive my naivety but which publication does WWD represent?

    I don't think it's the head of by Kilian that died, it's one of his ancestors, a different Kilian, that died in October at the age of 103.

    Also, Bykillian "tweeted" the following message 5 hours ago:

    WWD is Womens Wear Daily aka "The Bible of the Fashion Industry". The line just has his name, so hopefully it is the senior Kilian.

    Man, you guys had me worried. I'm just getting into his frags.

    I guess this is the price one pays for leaving off the obnoxious "Junior".

    At first, I thought "The Kilian I met at Saks South Coast two years ago? WHAT?" Phew.

    Still, living to 103 is nothing to sneeze at. My condolences to the Hennessy family.
    Top 5 for Late Summer:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Aventus - Creed
    3) Flower of Immortality - By Kilian
    4) L'Humaniste - Frapin
    5) Millesime Imperial - Creed

    My mission statement: "I am not afraid to keep on living - I am not afraid to walk this world alone."
