Maison Francis Kurkdjian, Paris: Fantastic Fragrances

Some places thrill, some scents enchant.

In spring 2010, while I was going to Véronique Leroy‘s shop, I found the charming boutique of Francis Kurkdjian, a French famous nose. It was 5 rue d’Alger in Paris. 

I started dicovering the fragrances smelling peer scent’s bubbles. Fun, breaking through the bubbles with the end’s nose for smelling all the scent’s nuances. I really enjoyed and did it again with a kid’s excitement.

The perfumes I prefer : Aqua Universalis, Apom and  Lumière Noire. Capsizing, thrilling… Subtle perfumes print frames in mind. A journey in beauty. Chic detail: fabric conditioner and washing liquid declined in one of the four perfumes references.

To all the lovers of scents: three irresistible Fragrances for the Valentine’s Day and spring. Gentlemen, think to add with this nice attention: an exuberant bouquet of red-fuchsia peonies for a change, a fine jewels (diamonds are best friends of your girlfriends) or a pair of Louboutin!

Evening Rose of Aerin   

Singular, explosive and refined for a glamorous sensual woman. An unexpected cocktail of rose and cognac, yes! I love the rose-based scents: here, with Rosa Centifolia and Rosa Bulgarian Absolute. Beautiful packaging and the bottle cap adds an extra sensuality to this strong fragrance.

Jimmy Choo

Sexy, spicy and provocative for an explosive woman, inevitably a bit fatal. Sparkling hot rich fragrance with fruity and woody nuances. The packaging is a bit “too much” but that still stays chic and the bottle is super explicite. Yes, you are a sex bomb in Jimmy Choo!

Take your Jimmy Choo (fragrance & shoes) to a city trip in Paris, London and New York baby!

Cherry Blossom L’Eau of L’Occitane

Happy, subtle and airy for a mysterious graceful mischievous woman. This Eau de parfum (“eau” means water) is light and fresh, like a smile. The flowers of cherry trees of Luberon (in the South of France) symbolize the renewal, spring and contagious sense of happiness. Spray it from head to toes to feel flying!

Bulgari: Mon Jasmin Noir L’Eau Exquise, Fragrance For Women

MlleLe K Mon Jasmin Noir L'Eau Exquise 2A

A bit heady without being voluble

Right now I have cravings for fresh, green gardens, light air smells of citrus (referring to my very recent yuzu period, grapefruit from Japan) and white flowers. Light, sunlight filtered through canisses. A happy wake a bit heady without being voluble. Elegant as the eau de parfum Mon Jasmin Noir L’Eau Exquise : a discovery, my first Bulgari perfume.

I really like the curves of bottle, pleasant to touch and look at. The lightly green color of L’Eau Exquise reminds me freshly cut grass. From the first pschit, I had a crush on with acid accents (pink grapefruit) and its top notes of jasmine and white tea, enhanced with the white musk. Instantly I was sent in the imaginary garden I described above. Addictive water, extremely refined and sensual that makes me a good mood. Carefree, charming and exquisite.
