Capturing the Essence of Paris: Francis Kurkdjian’s Petit Main and Grand Soir Duo

In the heart of Paris, where the Seine whispers secrets and the Eiffel Tower watches over the city, master perfumer Francis Kurkdjian has found his muse. Drawing inspiration from the enchanting rhythms of the French capital, Kurkdjian unveils his latest olfactory duo: Petit Matin and Grand Soir. These two new unisex fragrances each encapsulate a different facet of Parisian life, promising to transport wearers on a sensory journey through the City of Light.

In crafting these fragrances, Maison Francis Kurkdjian provides a deeply personal insight into Paris’s dichotomous essence – its serene mornings and enigmatic evenings. Each scent unfolds as a narrative of time and place, encapsulating the quintessence of Parisian sophistication and the fleeting beauty found in everyday moments.

Petit Matin serves as the initial chapter in this aromatic journey, capturing the essence of Paris at daybreak with a harmonious blend of musky citrus notes. Picture strolling through quiet streets, bathed in the golden glow of dawn, the city poised for adventure. This fragrance artfully combines cubeba, orange blossom, lavender and litsea with a musky base of AmbroxanTM, embodying the exhilarating anticipation of a fresh day.

As twilight descends, Grand Soir takes centre stage as it embodies the allure of Parisian evenings with its captivating amber and woody composition. Evoking the vibrant energy of the city’s nightlife, this fragrance opens with cinnamon leaf, lavender, and cistus labdanum, gradually unfolding into a warm, vanilla-amber base that envelops the wearer in a sensory embrace. It’s more than just a scent; it’s an invitation to immerse oneself in the mysteries of the night, beckoning with endless possibilities.

Both fragrances will initially be exclusively available in Paris at Maison Francis Kurkdjian stores and La Belle Parfumerie within the Printemps store, before launching at approved retailers worldwide later in the year.

As wearers immerse themselves in the exquisite scents of Petit Matin and Grand Soir, they are invited to embark on a sensory journey through the streets of Paris, from the tranquil moments of early morning to the exhilarating nights that define the city’s allure. With Kurkdjian’s unparalleled artistry, the essence of Paris is bottled, ready to transport anyone who dares to indulge in its magic.

With each spray of this impeccable duo, a whisper of the Seine’s breeze, a hint of Parisian cafes, and the echo of footsteps on cobblestone streets linger. Petit Matin and Grand Soir evoke not only the scents of Paris but also the emotions and memories that make it truly unforgettable.
