Dark Lord by Kilian Cologne. Dark Lord is a 2018 men’s spicy leather fragrance by Kilian, with a distinctive composition that both enchants and
intrigues. Its spicy top notes include Sichuan pepper, a Chinese native with fragrant lemony undertones. Bourbon pepper from Madagascar lends its terpene and spicy facets. Bergamot’s bitter orange note livens the opening before the fragrance reveals a heart of Indian jasmine sambac absolute and davana, a chamomile-like herb with tea leaf and fruity
undertones. Rum adds its familiar fruity, green and balsamic note before this scent closes with Atlas cedar, Indonesian patchouli and nagarmotha, a wild Indian grass with earthy, cedar and cinnamon-like tones.
