The nose behind Acqua di Parma's Iris Nobile, Giorgio Armani's Mania, Narciso for Her, Rose Barbare for Guerlain, Jean Paul Gaultier's MaDame, Kenzo's L'eau de Fleur Magnolia and too many more to list has opened his own Maison in Paris, and now debuts at Bergdorf Goodman, NY. Maison Francis Kurkdjian offers a new take on perfumery a 24-7 scented life that includes everything from traditional eau de parfum to laundry detergent. Explains Kurkdjian: "Day after day, perfume exists as a part of living."What we covet most?
Without question, the perfumed wrist bracelet... a wink to the origins of the craft of perfumery, when the perfumer was also a glove maker. Today, the glove is now a leather bracelet and monogrammed with a magnetized clasp infused with one of his three new fragrances:
- Aqua Universalis a clean fresh scent with citrus, white florals & musky woo
- APOM ( acronym for a piece of me) redolent of orange blossom & cedar wood
- lumiere noire a heart-stopping blend of spiced rose & patchouli
BONUS: it's perfect to sniff in crowded elevators, subways and foul-smelling cabs.
