Maison Francis Kurkdjian was born in 2009 from the meeting of Francis Kurkdjian, creator of renowned perfumes behind many successes, and Marc Chaya, former partner of Ernst & Young. This founding duo, with complementary talents, imagined a territory of sensual, generous and multi-faceted free expression in which perfume is naturally the hero.

In the world of perfume, Francis Kurkdjian holds a prominent place. Nothing predestined him to be a perfumer, but at the age of 13, he discovered this profession when his dreams of a star dancer at the Paris Opera and of a designer collapsed. In the shadows, he signed mythical perfumes such as Le Male, Fleurs du Male and the iconic Madame by Jean Paul Gaultier… Rose Barbare by Guerlain, My Burberry, Kenzo World or Eau Noire by Dior, it's him too.

It was not until September 2009, while still working for the biggest brands, that Francis Kurkdjian co-founded his eponymous house with Marc Chaya, who is its President. Success is there, the creations follow one another and the House develops at high speed.

With around ten boutiques and points of sale on almost all continents (Europe, Middle East, America, Asia, Oceania) as well as around thirty perfumes in its olfactory wardrobe, the reputation of the house is well established. But suddenly, if you are not yet very familiar with this brand but you want to be initiated, we guide you!

If you like them fresh scents, opt for Early morning. With its notes of Lemon from Calabria and Lavandin from Provence subtly blended with Orange Blossom and Musk, this superb trail recalls the freshness of the morning. Gentle Fluidity (Silver) may also appeal to you.

If you swear by floral juices, we recommend the eau de toilette'rose water' which offers a contemporary vision and brings a modern twist to the iconic rose. This feminine fragrance turns out to be a fruity floral fragrance with gourmet top notes, with the alliance of lychee and pear. Eau à la rose deploys on the skin a delicate floral freshness, very aerial that lasts.

Are you a fan of characterful perfumes, highlighting oud wood? OUD, Satin Mood is made for you.

Finally, if you are aficionado of amber fragrances, we can only recommend the cult perfume of the house: Baccarat Red 540. A worldwide bestseller!

It has to be said, Parisians are true fans of this confidential, chic brand...
