“Drowning in a Red Velvet Armchair”

KURKDIJAN : Baccarat 540

by Kurkdjian (2015)

Named for the Baccarat colour red, which is created by mixing gold flakes in glass heated to 540°C. Launched 2016, created in 2014, oriental floral.


Saffron and bloodorange; ambergis, resin. Could also be a gourmand or woody floral. Starts of sweet woody, saffron; then leads into a nicer woody oriental phase, then enters ambergris and makes it smell all like piss. Then dry-down is woody piss. Odd composition, and medicinal smell. Insane longevity, lasts 40 hours easily.
