Woody Notes, Amber
Maison Francis Kurkdjian - Baccarat Rouge 540 - Extrait de Parfum
To celebrate the 250th anniversary of the founding of Baccarat, the traditional glass manufactory in northern France, Francis Kurkdjian created a very special perfume in 2016: Baccarat Rouge 540, a noble blend of jasmine, saffron, amber and cedarwood.
Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait is the highly concentrated sister of the red-clad anniversary fragrance. Also wrapped in a red gown reminiscent of the iconic Baccarat red, this noble Extrait de Parfum enhances the expression and radiance of notes from the original eau de parfum - and superbly complements them with a hint of bitter almond and a musky wood accord.
This Extrait de Parfum is no less than the crowning glory of the previous fragrance creations of perfumer Francis Kurkdjian!
About Baccarat Rouge 540
Baccarat is a small, tranquil town in the northeast of France. But for lovers of fine crystal art, Baccarat is of course one thing above all: the traditional French glass manufacturer.
The legendary French glass manufacturer Baccarat has been around for 250 years. 250 years - that's a quarter of a millennium! To mark this respectable anniversary, perfumer Francis Kurkdjian created a very special perfume in honor of the house of Baccarat: Baccarat Rouge 540. The number "540" refers to the temperature in degrees Celsius that must be reached during the melting process in order for the crystal mixed with 24-karat gold dust to acquire its legendary red color: the "Baccarat red" - an exclusive shade of red that is also reflected in the color design of the Baccarat Rouge 540 bottle.
"I wanted to capture the contrast between the transparency of the crystal and the density of this unique and exclusive shade of red," says Francis Kurkdjian, "in a fragrance that is both radiant and intense.
This is Baccarat Rouge 540." "Baccarat Rouge 540 was born from the encounter between Maison Francis Kurkdjian and the House of Baccarat," Francis Kurkdjian continues. "I am fascinated by the magical interplay between nature and man. Both Baccarat and Maison Francis Kurkdjian transform raw materials to create something new and sensual."
The result of this unique cooperation of the world of noble glass and noble fragrance is a wonderful woody-floral intoxication of the senses, surrounded by amber accents.
Baccarat Rouge 540 is also available as Extrait de Parfum, as Travel Set, Scented Hair Mist and as Body Oil.
