Fragrance notes -
Egyptian jasmine grandiflorum, saffron, Moroccan bitter almond, cedar, musky wood, ambergris
MFK describes Rouge 540 not in terms of top, heart and base notes, but rather as the interplay between three unique accords, each lending a distinct and visceral characteristic. The "breeze" accord, jasmine and saffron, sits sheer and delicately spiced on the skin, leading way for the cedar-driven blend of woods that make up the robust and crackling "heat" accord. Finally, a "mineral" accord of ambergris seems simultaneously warm and cool, delivering deceptively straightforward depth to mimic the sophistication of Baccarat Crystal itself. Each accord is given new strength in Extrait form, harmonizing above the skin with a stunning new power and intensity. Like a crystalline kaleidoscope, the Extrait opens brighter, fruitier, and shinier, and, we've found, lasts long into the wild night. Furthermore, for the first time, the scent dons a dazzling red bottle that echoes the iconic Baccarat red, giving a bold yet classic new look to Francis Kurkdjian's greatest achievement yet.
