    Did Voldemort have a hand in this formulation?

    Another one where I believe the name and packaging will far exceed the quality of the composition.

    Looking forward to trying this one.

    I don't know as I haven't smelled it yet. I won't judge it until I get my nose on it. I wonder if the inspiration was supposed to be Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters. Wonder how that imagery would transfer to a fragrance.

    Dark Lord "Ex Tenebris Lux' is a gentleman of the night. Meet him in the most surprising of circumstances and his mystery slowly unfolds: A head-twisting mix of shadows and light, it seduces in seconds with its elegant, long-lasting accords of leather and strong vetiver, its jasmine drenched in rum, and a dandyish entrance of bergamot and pepper. Under lock and tasseled key, a 1.7 oz. flacon is carved with the Achilles’ Shield as a symbol of protection and finished with monogram-engraved gunmetal details. A smiling skull rises like a monument atop a black lacquered wooden coffret, illuminating a display of grim magnificence.

    By Kilian Dark Lord is available at Saks Fifth Avenue, $295 for 50 ml Eau de Parfum.

    The Description sounds promising.

    Wish we had the option to buy the bottles a bit cheaper without those bulky boxes. I have 6 Kilians and I’m a bit over the boxes and the keys. The manufacturing and transportation of these boxes is also really bad for the environment, wasted resources.

    I will be trying that one!

    Also, that box in the photo is the same one that comes with Black Phantom. I hope they come up with a new design.

    For those that do not know, the initial cost is for the fancy box and a refillable bottle. The refills are generally over $100 cheaper at By Kilian's website.

    Sounds like interesting juice. I'm a by Killian fan, have two that I like. Surprisingly, Luca Turin was pretty kind to them in the Perfumes Guide. He liked several tolerably well and boy, he's a tough critic!

    Vmaster, does the refill come in a spritz bottle too, or do you have to actually transfer the liquid to the original bottle?

    The refills come with a 10ml bottle. It has been a while since I purchased a refill, but they used to come with a gold colored metal funnel, and new atomizer for your original bottle to replace the old one.

    In my humble opinion, Moonlight in Heaven deserved the four stars. I own it and think it is great stuff!

    Regarding the refill, a photo is worth a thousand words:

    And the little atomizer spray bottle there should fit right into those heavy magnetic-top pocket atomizers, right?

    Ah, interesting. Thanks! It's a nice idea in theory. I wonder if it makes it easier for the second hand bottles on ebay or elsewhere to be watered down since the spray lid must be easily removable in order to replace it.

    we have the option - travel kit (atomiser + 4 7.5 mls refills). Black Phantom already being sold like that.
