Clone Formula: Baccarat Rouge 540 by Maison Francis Kurkdjian

In the creation of Baccarat Rouge 540 to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the famed French crystal house of the same name, Francis Kurkdjian was inspired by the red crystal that adorns each chandelier they make:

“A Baccarat Chandelier is known for its signature scarlet red crystal, which must be heated at 540 degrees Celsius to achieve its vibrant colour. To celebrate this transformative process, Kurkdijan has named and packaged this fragrance to match.”

Kurkdjian sought to create a fragrance of almost entirely synthetic materials, graced by the merest touches of natural floral and citrus oils. The result is Baccarat Rouge 540, one of the most popular and iconic of the perfumes from this luxury fragrance brand.

OMG….this is will be on my wishlist this month too, I thought that Christmas has past… have read a lot of stories and reviews of this one. Is it something non IFRA compliant? Because I don’t like IFRA compliant fragrances haha… 😉

Definitely interested in this as I love this scent! Is this based on the EDP or Extrait? Were there any captives used in the original?

Hi,
Octinoxate, Octyl salicylate and Avo benzone are UV absorbers. Why are these used and are there any substitues and can these be omitted ?

Interesting – Not as much what I expected – probably if I had created this myself by accident, I would have decided that it isn’t worth it. Interesting study though. I could imagine some more woody notes might help this so I got to experiment further. Maybe oak wood?

(I haven’t been able to compare this to the original)

Small update – I added 1% oakwood to the formula. And I have to admit it made a big difference. Will need to let it settle for some time but I am *almost* ready to say that I like it and we have improved upon it this way.

Surprised by the simplicity of the formula and how little there is of everything besides couple molecules which dont smell much themselves. Quite confused by this one. Even at 40% concentration, it is quite light. I wonder if those traces of naturals even make any difference. The smell is nice, but was expecting more depth and presence. To me , this is exactly like contemporary art where you have couple stokes of paint on a white background. It may be art, but I prefer masterpieces that never get old.
