Fragrance is an accessory that goes with anything. No matter what kind of mood I’m in, I always wear an uplifting scent. I first was introduced to Baccarat Rouge 540 (by Maison Francis Kurkdijan) in 2019. My friends referred to it as “highly addictive” and I have to agree- I”M ADDICTED!
I bit the bullet and purchased several pieces from the Baccarat Rouge 540 collection including the candle and hair mist. How can something like this intoxicating fragrance be so popular? Maison Francis Kurkdjian is not new to fragrance world. He has created many iconic scents including his first in 1995 which was Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male (the bottle shaped of a male torso).
Other notable fragrances he created were
Yves Saint Laurent Kouros eau d’été
Giorgio Armani Armani Mania
Narciso Rodriguez For Her
Juilette Has a Gun Eau d’Amour
Burberry My Burberry
All these fragrances Francis Kurkdjian evoke great memories and still to this day are popular in demand. 51 year old Kurkdjian was born in Paris to Armenian parents. He showed an interest to perfume making at the age of thirteen. Pursing his passion, he graduated from International du Parfum, de la Cosmetique et de l”Aromatique Alimentaire (ISIPCA)) located in Versailes, France.
Whats in the scent Baccarat Rouge 540
Created by Maison Francis Kurkdjian, this unisex fragrance that was launched 2015 has become the must-have scent for 2021. Contains Saffron, Jasmine, Amberwood, Ambergris, Fir resin and Cedar.This fragrance is intense as it lingers and remains on the skin all day. I was introduced to this fragrance in 2019 when I experienced it on a friend. The scent was so unique I needed it for my personal collection. I purchased several pieces including the travel EDP sprays, EDP for home, hair mist, body oil and of course, the luxury candle. Addicted in an understatement and that is why I needed this as my signature scent.

Its name pays an homage to (Baccarat crystal) the unique method of creating crystal – sealer scarlet cut glass, invented in 1847. The key to the red shade is 24k gold added to the crystal which is then heated up to 540 degree Fahrenheit . THE MORE YOU KNOW,RIGHT?
