Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait de Parfum intensifies the power and radiance of the three breaths that compose the Eau de Parfum without betraying its original inspiration. Born of the perfumer’s mastery and time-tested wisdom, this Extrait de parfum is, for Francis Kurkdjian, a culmination.
Top notes of jasmine Grandiflorum from Egypt delicately accentuate the breath of expertise evoking both the skilful hand that picked the flower and the one that transformed it into an absolute. The breath of fire is enhanced by the powdery, gourmand facets of bitter almond from Morocco, extracted as an essential oil using an ancestral process. Lastly, the breath of minerals built around ambergris softens on contact with a woody musk accord.

At the age of 15, when he decided to become a perfumer despite his complete lack of knowledge about the profession, Francis Kurkdjian couldn’t possibly have imagined where this path would lead him. However, he quickly understood that it would be replete with discipline and perseverance—values he learned during years of piano and ballet lessons.
For the past twenty years he has channelled his passion, determination and devotion into perfume, which fills his days, and sometimes his nights. His relationship with perfume has deepened over the years while remaining true to the values and tradition of fine perfumery. Yet he consistently seeks to break the moulds, free perfume from its bottle and open up doors leading to new lands.
