Actually, someone gifted me a small vial of Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait and I fell in love. Like, hardcore.
I randomly decided to take a break from my go-to scent recently and just by luck picked up the bottle of Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait that I’d been gifted. I sprayed a bit on my wrists and neck and it smelled nice at first, but I didn’t really think twice about it. As the day went on, however, I fell more and more in love. This is definitely a scent that builds over time and stays with you throughout the day. There’s jasmine from Egypt, saffron, bitter almond from Morocco and cedar wood. It’s actually quite hard to describe how captivating the scent is. It’s not strong or overpowering, but I always knew it was there and it smelled so incredible all day long. I’m completely hooked.
Of course, when I first sprayed the Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. Truth be told, I didn’t even look at the label when I first sprayed it. But as I became more and more obsessed with how I smelled during the day, I made a mental note to get the deets on the perfume the moment I got home. Upon Googling Maison Francis Kurkdjian, I discovered this perfume I’d come to love so very much was easily the fanciest fragrance I’d ever used. $425 fancy, to be exact. And that’s only for 2.4 oz!
Initially, I banished from my mind the thought of ever being able to use this scent again. I didn’t want to fall more in love with something I could never afford to buy myself. But 24 hours later, I’ve decided that I’m saving up for the 2.4 oz. It’s just too good and I need it in my life. The Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait obviously won’t be my everyday scent; I’m not balling like that. But for special occasions, this will be the good stuff I use.
If you are fragrance-lover, all I can tell you is that you need to find a store that carries Maison Francis Kurkdjian so you can experience it for yourself. I’ll let you decide for yourself if it’s worth the splurge, but I can tell you it was transformative for me. After just one use, I couldn’t stop thinking about this scent. That’s how amazing it is. The End.
