Kilian Angels’ Share | Honest Fragrance Review

Sophisticated Deliciousness – Kilian Angels’ Share Fragrance Review

In this article, I’ll be providing a review on Kilian Angels’ Share a fragrance by the house of Kilian as evident by the name.

In my view, Angels Share is one of Kilian’s greatest scents. This is a dish for gourmands, and spicy oriental perfume fans. To my nose, Angels’ Share smells like plain apple pie filling. It’s simultaneously sweet, warm, and seductive. The cinnamon, Cognac, and Tonka show brightly in Angels Share. This is a truly unisex scent, It smells great on all sexes.

Angels’ Share is a superbly mature gourmand that balances sweet notes of cognac, and cinnamon with a subtle woodiness to keep the near-cloying vanilla, and praline from overpowering, and cheapening the scent. It’s delectable, seductive, and young while still being a mature perfume.

The name “Angel’s Share” or “Gulp of Angels” originated from the field of whiskey manufacturing, although it can also refer to wine or cognac. It mystically depicts the process of evaporation that happens when the liquid more or less vanishes from long barrel ageing. A beautiful name for a thoroughly successful Eau de Parfum that puts its accents on the gourmand side of the fragrance world.

Kilian Angles Share starts with a pretty boozy top note, not alcoholic but quite appetising. This note is present throughout the scent. A sweetish praline, and cinnamon accord is added after the foundation, making the aroma more gourmet. You feel like biting yourself because it smells so good. The oak wood is included since the Angels Share process takes place in wooden barrels, making the aroma somewhat more manly, and more suitable to a male.


Kilian Hennessy is a descendent of the family that owns famed Hennessy Cognac brand. Despite being offered internships in the family business when he was younger, he went his own way to create his own high-end perfume line. He pays homage to his families legacy with Angels Share. Angels Share is a perfume to wear from night to dawn at a fashionable party.

By Kilian’s Angels’ Share is an Amber Vanilla scent for ladies and men. In the year 2020, Angels’ Share debuted. Benoist Lapouza is the perfumer behind this scent. Cognac is the top note, followed by Cinnamon, Tonka Bean, and Oak, with Praline, Vanilla, and Sandalwood as the middle and base notes.


Angels’ Share begins with a magnificent, colorful, shimmering cognac note that starts at the top. Kilian isn’t joking when they claim cognac as a “top note.” The photorealistic, French white oak cask-aged alcoholic cognac note, replete with barrel sediment and all – screams at application, but swiftly calms, and gives way to the heart in a matter of minutes, while a cognac harmony persists for the majority of the wear. We’ve got bourbon vanilla, Ceylon cinnamon, a warm rich Amber, and praline at this stage. The caramel/dulce de leche, nutty hazelnut-like creamy filling is more important in the praline than the chocolate. The cinnamon is gradually pushed back by these sweet, gourmet elements, creating a better balance.

As the scent develops, the sweetness remains constant, but the cinnamon fades out, enabling some of the woodier underlying accords to emerge – oak, perhaps, but definitely a slight creamy sandalwood component – that work nicely with the sweetness while also adding some dryness. You receive a cinnamon-dominant, sweet, creamy, festive spicy warm, but clearly NOT dark experience from start to end.

Angels’ Share makes it evident from the first impression that we’re dealing with a full-bodied Kilian that wants to be viewed as noble. I assumed whiskey would play a part in the fragrance, based on the design of the the bottle. However, it appears that cognac was the aim, with a fat lump of cinnamon, and a knife tip of vanilla, aged in oak wood.

Some people may find the sweet/sharp contrast present in Angles Share too much for them. It’s not one of the sweetest boozy scents I’ve ever smelled, nor is it too nutty. Still, it leans heavily toward the sweet cognac, followed by nutty accords, and then some woods, with oak appearing the most to my nose.
