Ryan Korban Candle (black)
Limited Edition Candle - By Kilian
Share |
Dark. Erotic. Pure Luxury. When Kilian Hennessy, cognac scion and creator of the French luxe perfume brand By Kilian, and Ryan Korban, NYC’s king of ‘downtown cool’ interior design, met through a mutual friend one year ago, no one could have imagined that the pair had so much in common. As it turns out, Kilian’s ambition to place perfumery back on a pedestal by combining a 20th century boudoir feel with a contemporary twist was quickly recognized to be in direct correlation with Ryan’s old world design ideal of reviving lost romance in a modern urban setting. Both men were intrigued and the collaboration ensued.

As their creative visions intertwined, the Ryan Korban by Kilian candle was conceived with sexy yet chic packaging and a dark yet romantic rose scent.

A multi-sensory mix of materials was used to create a richness of product that both creators required. The candle vessel is made of matte glass and is hand painted in either all black or all white. Creating an interesting contrast, the black glass is filled with white scented wax and the white glass is filled with black scented wax. The lid of the candle is made of black shagreen (stingray) and trimmed in silver metal. As both Kilian and Ryan subscribe to the notion of bringing luxury aesthetics from the past into a modern setting, the addition of the stringray was significant due to the belief that in ancient civilizations, stingray was said to bring strength and power to anyone that handled it. As a finishing touch, the candle and accompanying lid are housed in a decadent lambskin drawstring pouch.

Working with perfumer Sidonie Lancesseur (author of Ryan’s favorite scents in the L’Oeuvre Noire collection), who typically likes raw and dark materials, was a natural fit for both Kilian and Ryan. In a seamless process, they quickly united on a leathery rose for a singular floral note, full of character.
