In 2009, we were invited by Francis Kurkdjian to his launch party in Paris, where he proudly introduced his own maison.

Whether you're strolling through the streets or heading into the evening, the sillage of this perfume is so captivating and convincing that you have probably caught a whiff of this divine scent (and maybe even asked who is wearing this heavenly fragrance).
But what is the secret to its success? Let's delve deeper into the enchanting world of Baccarat Rouge 540 and discover what makes this perfume so special.
Baccarat Rouge 540
The beautiful Baccarat crystal
The name Baccarat belongs to a leading and high-quality crystal brand that celebrated its 250th anniversary in 2014. As a tribute, perfumer Francis Kurkdjian created a perfume. You guessed it: that was Baccarat Rouge 540, an extraordinarily sparkling and exquisite fragrance.
The color red
The bottle is deep red, a symbol of pure French luxury and a nod to chemistry. 24-carat gold powder is added to the molten glass; at precisely 540°C, the color of the glass changes to this beautiful red glow. The name itself refers to this high temperature: 540.
The seductive scent
The magic continues in the scented liquid. A key ingredient contributing to the distinctive allure of Baccarat Rouge 540 is hedione. This aromatic compound, known for its elegant subtle floral scent, adds vibrant freshness. The perfume becomes radiant without losing its enveloping character, precisely what Kurkdjian wanted to achieve in his composition. The sweet heart of Baccarat Rouge 540 continues in sensual jasmine, while warm amber accords of seductive ambroxan add depth. Cedarwood and iso e super, a velvety wood-scented perfume ingredient, add mysterious layers.
And for those who detect a hint of leather… That's the saffron, also known as red gold. This ancient spice enhances the complexity of the perfume and elevates overall sensuality to new heights. In short, Baccarat Rouge 540: a symphony of seduction and mystery. We get the success!
