The product of a collaboration between two world renowned French Maisons, Francis Kurkdjian and Baccarat, this perfect partnership produced one of my most treasured fragrances of all time. Baccarat Rouge 540 is pure stimulation for the sensualist in me.
For me, fragrance represents an intimate relationship. It acts as an extension, a cocooning second skin of scented armour. It allows you to wear your personality, an expression of who you are.
I remember first smelling this fragrance a few years ago. My instant reaction was that it was almost too sweet but, after allowing it to dry on my skin, the aroma mellowed and I straight-away fell in love. A harmonious marriage of Jasmin Grandiflorum, Moroccan bitter almond, ambergris and wood musk accord.
I pair Baccarat Rouge 540 with its complimentary hair scent, itself comprised of the most perfect poetic alchemy of jasmine, saffron, ambergris and cedar wood.
