Francis Kurkdjian in London's Liberty next Monday to launch Les Elixirs

30th August, 2011

Perfumer, Francis Kurkdjian will be in Liberty on Monday 5th September between 4-7pm. If you would be interested in meeting Kurkdjian, you may book an appointment with Emma at United Perfumes on 020 7625 7771.

His new range, Les Elixirs, will be available from October 2011. Kurkdjian said on Liberty's blog that "I decided to revive the beauty of perfume extract, this prince of perfumery. However I wanted to add a contemporary gesture and packaging, creating a new texture that likes the direct contact with skin. The perfume extracts of Maison Francis Kurkdjian fit in the palm of the hand and apply with a tiny roll-on perfume for anytime, anywhere, with discreet elegance. Three of my fragrances now have their Elixir version: APOM pour femme, Aqua Universalis and Lumière Noire pour femme."

Basenotes will be featuring an interview with Francis Kurkdjian shortly.

      Very interesting stuff!!!

      I wish I lived closer and I would totally want to meet him. Too bad I'm stuck here in Vancouver, Canada! :(

      If anyone gets to meet him, let us know what he is like.

      Thanks for that, Grant, Jason.

      I'm a fan of Liberty anyway, it's my favourite perfume department. I'll have to think about whether I can go.
