Maison Francis Kurkdjian's new scents celebrate two of our favourite parts of the day
Dawn and dusk
There are many times of the day to enjoy. From a stolen afternoon — preferably spent napping in bed — to a post-sunset stroll, to the peace of an early morning. Understanding these magic moments in time, French cult perfumery Maison Francis Kurkdjian's newest scents capture the feeling of a Petit Matin (roughly translating to a quiet morning) and Grand Soir (a grand evening). The best part? You wear these scents at any time of the day or night, and they are not earmarked for any one gender. Says the brand's perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, "The freshness of an early morning. The radiance of a grand evening. I live to the rhythms of this enchanting and luminous Paris. I love these unique moments. They have inspired me the creation of this duo of fragrances, to be worn and experienced like an olfactory escapade in the heart of the City of Light."
That said, many women and lovers of delicate scents, will gravitate towards the clean, fresh and comforting Petit Matin. It smells like a warmer version of the brand's signature Aqua Universalis and in the juice are notes of lemon, hawthorne and lavandin from Provence, resulting in a soft, luminous woody floral citrus scent. Those who are more about making a daring statement will adore Grand Soir. With soft touches of vanilla, intoxicating benzoin and tonka bean, this blend of amber, wood and Oriental notes, will enchant at first whiff. Once anyone is close enough to sniff, they'll notice the elegance and sophistication of this eau de parfum. We would buy both: to share and spray generously as our moods dictate.
$237 each. At Escentials from September
