Intensively Red: Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait de Parfum by Maison Francis Kurkdjian

Joining forces around common values of expertise, creativity and excellence, Maison Francis Kurkdjian and Baccarat are extending the collaboration they initiated in 2014 for the Rouge 540 anniversary fragrance launch. Originally  an  eau de parfum, Baccarat Rouge 540,  Baccarat  Crystal’s  olfactory  signature,  is  now available in a new form: an Extrait de parfum.

In the Fall of 2014, Baccarat, the most prestigious and opulent crystalworks in the world, celebrated the 250th anniversary of their founding by releasing an extraordinary crystal decanter containing a luminous, exclusive fragrance created by Francis Kurkdjian. Released later onto the open market in a slightly more achievable presentation as Baccarat Rouge 540 EDP, the world quickly fell in love with the gorgeously woody floral-amber and its equal parts transparent, dense, and intense character. Now, Baccarat and M. Kurkdjian extend their partnership with a new Extrait concentration that intensifies the power and radiance of all aspects of the scent, all without betraying the original inspiration. 

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.

Deepening the Extrait’s intensity, the bottle also plays with light. For the first time, it dons a dazzling red garment echoing the iconic Baccarat red. To enrich this olfactory experience, Baccarat Rouge 540 also comes in a scented, moisturizing, nourishing  body cream. The fragrance lies on the skin  like a sensual veil with woody amber floral tones.
