Scented Jewelry You’ll Actually Want to Wear
The mere mention of scented jewelry likely conjures up images of solid perfume baubles you either discarded from a gift-with-purchase or bought for your niece’s 10th birthday. It’s safe to say we’ve yet to find a stylish option since entering adulthood—that is, until we discovered By Kilian’s ultra-luxe range of wearable fragrances. If you normally spritz perfume on your neck, By Kilian’s rhodium and 18-karat gold-plated tassel necklaces are your next must-have. Each piece features either a ceramic disc scented with one of By Kilian’s twenty-nine fragrances or a silk cord that has been microencapsulated with one of six scents. They’re so discreet, one would never suspect you’re wearing a high-tech olfactory device; in fact, the necklaces look more like mementos picked up on some far-flung vacation.
Also included in By Kilian’s capsule collection are four leather bracelets, ranging from thick cuffs to wrap-around styles. Though technically for men, we think they would look especially chic on women. The leather is infused with one of five fragrances, inspired by traditional gantiers parfumeurs (French perfume experts from centuries past who infused men’s gloves with fragrances for an extra dose of luxury). Think of it this way: If you frequently gesture with your hands, the scent will waft ever-so-slightly with each flick of the wrist.
By Kilian bracelets, from $195 to $325; necklaces, from $245 to $465. For more information, visit bykilian.com
