The essence of femininity and masculinity, by Francis Kurkdjian

Designed to have a ‘mirror effect’ on one another, perfumer Francis Kurkdjian introduces two new fragrances to his ever-growing collection: Féminin Pluriel and Masculin Pluriel.

They delightfully capture the essence of femininity and masculinity, while being utterly timeless –  to do this he added a contemporary twist to each.

For Féminin Pluriel, the idea was to create something abstract around a bouquet of flowers. The entrancing combination of iris, violet, Grasse rose, Egyptian jasmine, lily of the valley and orange blossom is perfectly balanced alongside chypre accords of vetiver and Indonesian patchouli.

Masculine Pluriel offers a twist on a fougère accord – which is by all means the trademark of classic men’s fragrances. Alongside a glorious bouquet of heady lavender absolute from Provence, you’ll discover the woody addition of Indonesian patchouli, cedar and vetiver from Haiti.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Masculin Pluriel and Féminin Pluriel, from £110 for 70ml
