With the charisma of a true temptress, Good girl gone Bad has been turning heads and hearts for years as a dangerously addictive floral blendFor the warmer season, KILIAN PARIS crafts its newest variation, Good girl gone Bad Eau Fraîche, adding a cool and aquatic olfactive touch to the original. This temptress is in her element, as summertime sensuality reigns supreme.

Imagine a Grecian villa, in the midst of the summer, surrounded by the endless blue of the Aegean Sea. Open windows allow a constant flow of fresh air, as the white linen curtains dance to the rhythm of the wind. The fresh air carries with it the scent of the Mediterranean flowers and in the background the aquatic smell of the sea. This is the scenery of Kilian Hennessy’s inspiration for his new creation.

Like a white day dress worn in the strong sun, that draws the eyes to all the right places, Good girl gone Bad  Eau Fraîche is a fragrance for this sort of half-innocent, half not-so-innocent head spin. Somewhere between narcotic and airy, it is the season’s nectar keeping summer bees busy.

THE INSPIRATION

Inspired by the biblical figure Eve, as well as the Hollywood icon Mae West who quipped: “When I’m good, I’m very good, but when I’m bad, I’m better”—Good girl gone Bad embodies the conflicts between sweetness and sin in a whirlwind of a thousand petals.

THE PERFUMER

Revisited by perfumer Alberto Morillas, who crafted the original blend in collaboration with founder Kilian Hennessy, Good girl gone Bad Eau Fraîche highlights its fleurs blanches, by adding a refreshing summery twist.

THE NOTES

The perfume opens with notes of luminous Orange Blossom from North Africa, alongside Roses from Turkey and Morocco but it is at its heart where this new blend comes true: Egyptian Jasmine Sambac is splashed with a watery uplift and the ever-voluptuous Tuberose is gentler and more carefree by a textured sensation of freshness. A modern and velvety dry down, with a distinctive floral Musk, reminds us that this temptress is experienced—she knows better than anyone that nothing is more seductive than innocence.

THE BOTTLE

The perfume flacon features gold-tone hardware against the frosted white glass. Upon its sides are a textured fresco, a KILIAN PARIS signature motif inspired by Achilles’s shield from Ancient Greek mythology. It represents Kilian Hennessy’s belief in the protective power of perfume.
