Maison Francis Kurkdjian was born in 2009 from the encounter between Francis Kurkdjian, a renowned perfumer with scores of successful creations to his name, and Marc Chaya, Co-founder and President of the fragrance house. Together, they fulfilled their desire for a sensual, generous and multi-facetted landscape of free expression, creating a new emblem of French know-how and lifestyle. Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s unique personality is fostered by the creative power of a man who has a taste for precision. Francis Kurkdjian has been a leading perfumer since he started his career with Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male some 20 years ago. He has since created more than 40 iconic perfumes for world famous fashion houses and designers such as Armani, Burberry, Dior, Elie Saab, Lanvin, Narciso Rodriguez or Yves Saint Laurent. He also opened pathways to a new vision by pioneering in 2001 the segment of bespoke fragrances, lending his talent to major contemporary artists or creating gigantic olfactory installations in emblematic places such as Château de Versailles or Grand Palais in Paris. The Maison Francis Kurkdjian collection is sketched like a fragrance wardrobe, with myriad of facets of emotions. Designed in the tradition of luxury French perfumery, it advocates nevertheless a contemporary vision of the art of creating and wearing perfume. Recognized as one of the world's most celebrated perfumers, Francis Kurkdjian imagined a fragrance territory of a free, sensual and delicate perfectionism. The Maison is guided by enchanting yet precise codes: purity, sophistication, timelessness and the boldness of a classicism reinvented. Exceptional know-how come together and echo off each other. They are continually writing a number of sensory adventures, in which perfume is, naturally, the hero.More from Maison Francis Kurkdjian
