Kurkdjian creates latest Carven – L'Eau de Toilette

22nd April, 2014

Francis Kurkdjian has created the latest fragrance for Carven: Carven L'Eau de Toilette. The fragrance is a flanker to Carven Le Parfum, launched last year, which was also created by Kurkdjian.

Carven L'Eau de Toilette contains top notes of lemon, sweet pea and peony; freesia, hyacinth and wisteria make up the heart of the fragrance; and sandalwood, blonde wood and musk feature in the base notes.

Kurkdjian says “I imagined Carven L’Eau de Toilette like a lightweight piece of clothing, with an elegant cut and a decidedly “city” look. As easy to wear as Le Parfum but made of a different fabric, probably more airy. Quite naturally, the original Jasmine became Freesia, illustrating its totally floral lightness. I also reworked the woody harmony in my composition, so it would blend delicately with the Musks.”

Carven L'Eau de Toilette is available in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml Eau de Toilette, and also features a range of 'Light' Body Products (Body Cream, Bath & Shower Gel, Deodorant Spray) to suit the lighter fragrances.

In the UK the fragrance is available now exclusively at Selfridges with a Nationwide roll-out on 10th May 2014.

In the US the fragrance is available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue.

      Le Parfum is one of the first full 100 mls bottles I've bought I ages. It's been a long time since I've come across something that isn't like what I already have, that is elegant and beautiful and mature without the standard cheap chemical "ping" that so many fragrances have now, especially since the IFRA regs came into force. I do not find Le Parfum innocent and young and it is really lovely sprayed on the skin where it unfolds with force and beauty. If L'Eau de Toilette has as much promise, this spring may be quite hard on my budget.

      My wife and I like both of these. The EDT is very "spring-like" - perfect right now.
