Give Your Fragrance Wardrobe a Fresh Start

21 Sep 2018

France’s acclaimed architect of fragrance, Francis Kurkdjian, launched his stellar career more than 20 years ago with an ambitious recreation of Marie Antoinette’s perfume. Taking an olfactory tour to the 17th century and back again, he began composing ethereal and spectacular scents for world-famous fashion houses, before opening his own Maison in 2009. Guided by Kurkdjian’s hallmarks of sophistication, purity, timelessness, and reinvented classicism, Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s wardrobe of fragrances is a celebration of life in all its glory. Contemporary and imaginative, but within the traditions of the finest French perfumery, every Francis Kurkdjian creation is an irresistible daily ritual and sonnet of the senses.

THE AQUA FRAGRANCE WARDROBE

In his trio of Aqua fragrances, Francis Kurkdjian has captured the beauty of life and its most vital element – water. Like an aquatic kiss on summer skin, each perfume recharges and refreshes with the brightness of breaking waves, but then separates with a distinct personality.
