My favourite gift for Christmas: Baccarat Rouge 540 of Maison Francis Kurkdijan Paris
As Christmas is coming in a few days, I love to go shopping to buy some great Christmas gifts for my family. It’s quite easy to get some lovely presents for my children and husband. For me, it’s more difficult to choose from all those fancy stuff. I always give some hints to my family 🙂
Maison Francis Kurkdijan Paris
Recently, I discovered a fantastic fragrance brand, called Maison Francis Kurkdijan Paris.
Francis Kurkdijan is a French contemporary perfumer and businessman. He was made famous at age 26 for designing of the fabulous scent of Le Male for Jean Paul Gaultier. In 2009, he co-founded luxury fragrance house Maison Francis Kurkdijan with the Lebanese-French businessman Marc Chaya, and is now a major player in the luxury niche fragrance segment.
Baccarat Rouge 540
When I got a sample of one of his amazing fragrances, called Baccarat Rouge 540 eau de parfum, it was love at first smell. Top notes are bitter almond and saffron. middle notes are egyptian jasmine and cedar; base notes are musk, woody notes and ambergris.
Wearing it, everyone was asking me what fragrance I had put on, because of its great smell which stays behind without being too present.
As it is a niche luxury perfume, its quite pricely, especially the ‘extrait de parfum’. The extrait de parfum is very concentrated so one drop is enough to smell it the whole day. It’s nice to get is as a present under the Christmas tree :-))
