In 2014 Baccarat – cult crystal maker unveiled its special, 250th anniversary edition Eau de Parfum: Rouge 540 taking its name from the temperature (C) needed to achieve the red colour of Baccarat crystal.


The 250 pieces, collector edition housed in the heavy crystal bottle with the stopper was the exceptional piece of art with the equally exclusive price (3000 EUR/ 4000 USD per 100ml of Eau de Parfum). The composition has been signed by Master Perfumer Francis Kurkdjian.

Now, in January 2016 Maison Francis Kurkdjian will bring back the Baccarat Rouge 540 as part of the MFK’s portfolio, yet with (more) accessible price (195 EUR for 70ml EdP) housed in the classic Maison’s bottle with red label and crystal chandalier motif, both on the backside and outer packaging.


The composition will remains exactly the same, with luminous, transparent, yet intense woody, floral and amber accords and notes of blood orange, citrus peel, lavender, sage, ambergris, saffron, moss, ancient woods and oak moss.

Look for Baccarat Rouge 540 in January, available online and in Maison Francis Kurkdjian boutiques.
