Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris: A Spring Quartet

Give these four distinctive Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris fragrances a whirl this Spring, since there’s something in this dazzling bouquet for every nose.

Silver Gentle fluidity and Gold gentle Fluidity are the dual result of an incredibly fun creative challenge: use the exact same notes, but in different portions, to create bookend fragrances. One fragrance is musky-oriental and the other is woody-aromatic. Same notes, two very unique identities, and crafted in France.

Silver Gentle fluidity has main accords that are aromatic, fresh spicy, woody, musky, powdery, soft and spicy. The dry-down is powdery, lovely and soft. The specific notes are juniper berries, nutmeg, coriander, musks, ambery woods, and vanilla. In the Silver version, nutmeg and ambery woods are dominant and release a vibrant, comfortable scent. Juniper berry builds to an ascending, ultra-fresh, aromatic note, similar to a “gin frappé” effect, balanced by the dry, slightly balmy, spicy notes of nutmeg. The base notes reveal ambery wood facets ranging from sweet and enveloping to powerful and dry.

Gold gentle Fluidity has a flowery-vanilla eau de parfum vibe that’s ideal for celebrating and capturing the essence of Spring. In the heart of the fragrance, the refined floral accord and powerful vanilla facets are magnified by the luminous freshness of a musky, woody note. The main accords in the gold version are vanilla, powdery, amber, woody, musky, fresh spicy, aromatic, sweet, soft, spicy, animalic.

I love wearing both of these together at times too, to meld the crisp fresh with the powdery floral. Find them HERE or at Bergdorf Goodman stores or Bloomingdales stores.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris’s L’eau A la rose offers an intense rose scent with a dash of fruit for rose-lovers. Its main accords are rose, floral, fresh, fruity, powdery, musky, tropical and violet. Top notes are lychee and pear; middle notes are Damask rose, Grasse rose, peony and violet, and the base note is musk. Its delicious and refreshing, youthful and lush. Find it HERE.

The L’Homme A la rose version was released in 2020 and balances French fragrance sophistication with an updated modernity. Light enough to wear anywhere but heady enough to impress, this scent reinvents the masculine rose as durable, uplifting, and alluring. L’Homme A La Rose is crafted around two of the world’s most lauded roses: deep, sweet Damask roses from Bulgaria and smooth, fresh Centifolia rose from Grasse. A fruity, zesty grapefruit accord accentuates the floral roundness, while an earthy ambery wood accord blends with aromatic sage. A rose is a rose, except when it’s rendered extraordinary, as it is in this Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris scent. Find it HERE at Lucky Scent.

All of these fragrances are unisex and all-inclusive — we’ll let you decide!
