Maison Francis Kurkdjian: Scents of Paris

The scents of Paris are captured with two new fragrances from Maison Francis Kurkdjian.

Forgoing the usual boundaries separating men’s and women’s fragrances, Maison Francis Kurkdjian recently released two new scents that capture the company’s interpretation of night and day. Named the Petit Matin and Grand Soir, the scents are inspired by the city of Paris where dawn is fresh and quiet and evenings host the spotlights that shine from the monuments.

With Petit Matin, the brand interprets the time of day when the air is fresh and inviting. Using the Indonesian plant litsea cubeba and Calabrian lemon for the opening notes, the fragrance gives way to lavandin and hawthorn. Following the heart of the scent are the base notes of amber and musky aromas.

For the Grand Soir, the Maison invites one to revel in the magic, energy and mysteries that Paris has to offer when the sun goes down. Slightly more dramatic and intense than the first fragrance, the Grand Soir is a mix of vanilla, bensoin and tonka beans from Brazil as well as cistus labdanum from Spain.

In the words of Francis Kurkdjian: “The fresh feeling of early morning (Petit Matin). The energy of a big night out (Grand Soir). I live in sync with the rhythms of Paris, this enchanting, luminous city. These special moments have inspired two new fragrances which take us on an olfactory journey in the City of Light”. The two fragrances will be launched exclusively in Paris at both Maison Francis Kurkdjian stores and at La Belle Parfumerie within the Printemps store. Come September, they will be made available at all approved retailers.
