Baccarat Rouge 540

The Scoop

In the Fall of 2014, Baccarat, the most prestigious and opulent crystalworks in the world, celebrated the 250th anniversary of their founding by releasing an extraordinary crystal decanter containing a luminous, exclusive fragrance created by Francis Kurkdjian. Only 250 of these bottles were produced, for a price of $4000 apiece. Now, for the first time ever, this spectacular fragrance is available to the world as Baccarat Rouge 540, a gorgeously woody floral-amber equal parts transparent, dense, and intense.

MFK describes Rouge 540 not in terms of top, heart and base notes, but rather as the interplay between three unique accords, each lending a distinct and visceral characteristic. The "breeze" accord, jasmine and saffron, sits sheer and delicately spiced on the skin, leading way for the cedar-driven blend of woods that make up the robust and crackling "heat" accord. Finally, a "mineral" accord of ambergris seems simultaneously warm and cool, delivering deceptively straightforward depth to mimic the sophistication of Baccarat Crystal itself. A fragrance that was only meant to belong to 250 of the world's wealthiest collectors is now available, and we could not be more thrilled to offer it.

I got this perfume for Christmas and it has made the short list for my daily perfume wear. I am not normally a fan of florals (my standby is Tom Ford Azure Lime for context), but this one is in a class of its own. It has all of the beauty of a rose sent without the overwhelming top notes of an Estée Lauder or the excessive accompanying notes of the Van Cleef rose (my second favorite). It is light and airy but has great longevity.

I'm sampling this on snowy winter day and it seems perfect to provide a uplifting hit of sunshine. I feel it is the smell of crystalline lemon peels dancing on a sheer sage and creamy wood platform. It's a clean yet intriguing skin scent on me that is somewhat jewel-like and somewhat edible.

This is not a gourmand and yet it smells like something I want to eat. I smelled it at Bergdorf Goodman and got it sprayed on a card - I could NOT stop smelling it for two weeks. Now I've ordered a sample, let's hope it smells as good on my skin as it does on paper!

Just tried this one today and while it didn't impress me at first whiff, it's been growing on me ever since. Honestly, I don't get wood, or cedar. I get burnt sugar from this, but it's very light and not cloying. It's a lovely daytime scent, and I like it so much it's in the running for my big "birthday" purchase.

Simply breathtaking!!! This is the ultimate sweet woody fragrance for me. The gorgeous cedar and amber take centre stage throughout with a beguiling sweetness cutting through the woody/creaminess at all times. Saffron is a note I adore in fragrances and its medicinal spiciness can be comfortingly felt. A real unisex fragrance that will appeal to both women (the sweetness) and men (the woodiness) or if you are like me....a female who loves woods. 5 star fragrance.....Stunning.
