Baccarat Rouge 540 by Maison Francis Kurkdjian for Unisex - 2.4 oz Extrait De Parfum Spray
About this deal
I will say though, I didn’t find this to be anything that’s hard to describe or even transformative as many people have described it. So, I’ve smelled a million and one dupes for this, many fragrances “inspired by” it, and I’ve smelled BR540 extrait… however, today is my first time smelling the OG BR540. It is exactly the same aroma with a lip balm I used to wear when I was a teenager, a generic lip balm. It was such a strong and distinctive smell that all their family carried around on their clothes and bodies - I have often tried to find a scent that carries that smell. 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.
It is very well-blended throughout, warm and enveloping, sweet and musky, synthetic but creamy and cosy.I always loved the scent of their house - like sweet berries mixed with chamomile, soft leather jackets and something antiseptic coming from the beautician's annex. Hi it's my 3rd review on my newest bottle (formulation definitely changed or they've watered this down tremendously) and I have to put this out as a P. This start in the pre-Covid 19 era, while I was working as a junior graphic designer for a startup company. Launched with immediate acclaim in 2010 to celebrate Creed’s 250th anniversary, Aventus celebrates strength, power, vision and success - the ideal scent for individuals who saviour a life well-lived. I guess there is unlisted ambroxen with the ambergris or is the listed ambergris note really ambroxen?
Nose blindness or anosmia happens quite rapidly and only upon stepping outside or into a new environment, do I catch strong whiffs of it emanating from me - so the perfume is quite potent even if the wearer can't smell it after a while. In essence, there's a prominent metallic something to my nose so I totally get the dental/medical/latex gloves reviews. I kept getting wafts of it throughout the day and I kept smelling different aspects of the perfume and I LOVE IT! I have not worn it in public yet, because it is quite a daring fragrance and a bit on the feminine side if you ask me.
The tube coming out of the bottle is not really suited to extract the juice with a syringe, so I taped-off a beaker and sprayed the juice until I got the required amount of juice needed for my decants (yes, my finger hurt afterwards). Perfect for the bold, spirited and confident, Aventus opens with tantalising top notes of blackcurrant and Italian bergamot, blended with Calville Blanc apples and sparkling pineapple. Now I know what I smelled on every corner of the streets, when I thought people were wearing horribly smelling cheap deodorant. ALCOHOL; PARFUM (FRAGRANCE); AQUA (WATER); DIPROPYLENE GLYCOL; ETHYLHEXYL METHOXYCINNAMATE; ETHYLHEXYL SALICYLATE; BUTYL METHOXYDIBENZOYLMETHANE; BHT; LIMONENE; BENZYL BENZOATE; LINALOOL; CI 19140 (YELLOW 5); CI 14700 (RED 4). I will only say that, to me, this is a very beautiful, unique (to my collection), full “flavored”, expensive and classy smelling fragrance.
It sadly has lost some of its appeal due to it being replicated/duped over and over, but nothing comes close to the original.The dry down is very nice though- particularly after 8 hours that sweetness goes away and you have this unique lived in ozonic quality to it. It's not that it isn't a good scent because of the synthetic nature - I love blatantly synthetic compositions. And thirdly, I don't find Baccarat Rouge as sweet as adverstised, and certainly not cloyingly sweet (although I can understand some people thinking the loud, synthetic, and somewhat sweet profile is cloying. com fixes the glitch when showing this fragrance under " people that like this also like this" no I don't lol.
