TOAST OF THE TOWN: Kilian Hennessy will host an ephemeral bar at Paris’ Hôtel Plaza Athénée during the upcoming fashion week in the French capital.

The pop-up bar, running from Sept. 25 to Oct. 2, is in celebration of Hennessy’s new perfume, called Smoking Hot.

The Kilian Bar will be located in the tony hotel’s central courtyard, which is to feature an XXXXL-size Kilian Paris perfume bottle.

All five of Kilian Paris’ fragrance lines — The Fresh, The Narcotics, The Cellars, The Smokes and The Liquors — will be there.

Signature cocktails nodding to such perfumes can be ordered. And from noon to 10 p.m., people may have bespoke olfactive consultations.

This marks the second time Hennessy has created an ephemeral bar during a Paris Fashion Week. Another at the Hôtel Plaza Athénée popped up last September, and a Kilian Bar made an appearance at the Carlton Beach Club at the Cannes Film Festival this past May.
