Baccarat Rouge 540 by Maison Francis Kurkdjian Review
We feel that the Baccarat Rouge 540 is not for everyone—besides the price that would make almost anyone think twice before purchasing a bottle, the scent is loud and sweet, and not the kind that people would find endearing. This is maintained from the first spritz and pat, all the way until drydown, although there are other elements introduced. There is a woodsy feel to it, as well as salt that does little to subside the sugar but complements it instead. Performance is excellent which means you’ll have to stick with it a long while whether you love or hate it.
There is a salty hint that complements the sugary scent
Evolves into something fresher and cleaner by the middle
Has excellent wear time
We feel that the rush of sweetness can be too much for some people
Is synthetic from beginning to end
Could be categorized as an acquired scent
Save Big At:
Baccarat Rouge 540 was originally released in 2014 as a Baccarat exclusive. In 2016, it was relaunched under Maison Francis Kurkdjian and sold at thousands of dollars less than the original, while essentially being the same hyped up fragrance that it was two years earlier. It was a concoction made by the very same man who carries the house—Francis Kurkdjian—and made with accords of cedar, jasmine, ambergris and saffron. The maison categorizes it as a woody floral scent.
