Maison Francis Kurkdjian
Maison Francis Kurkdjian was created in 2009 following the meeting of Francis Kurkdjian, a renowned perfumer with scores of successful creations to his name, and Marc Chaya, a former associate of Ernst & Young. The founding duo have applied their complementary talents to conceive a new territory of free expression in contemporary fragrances – sensual, generous and multi-facetted – where the perfume is naturally the hero.
Perfumer Francis Kurkdjian’s remarkable creative talent defines the unique personality of his eponymous house.This personality expresses codes as seductive as they are precise: purity, sophistication, timelessness and the boldness of reinvented classicism. The different facets of exceptional expertise come together and echo one another, providing the fundamentals on which Maison Francis Kurkdjian has been built, shaping its singular quality.
With a focus on deliberate and sound international expansion, Maison Francis Kurkdjian is currently present in some 40 countries.
Internationally-renowned perfumer Francis Kurkdjian has designed visionary fragrances that meld uncompromising quality and contemporary flair. For more than 20 years he has explored new creative territories in fragrances through his own bespoke fragrance atelier, collaborations with artists and pop-up installations.
FENDI and Maison Francis Kurkdjian fused their savoir-faire to create a unique version of the Baguette and Nano Baguette handbags. Francis Kurkdjian created FendiFrenesia, an exclusive eau de parfum that translates the nobility of the Selleria leather, scenting it with a technique patented by Maison Francis Kurkdjian.
This collaboration inspired another with artist Christelle Boulé, who captured the visual imprint of the FendiFrenesia fragrance, which is printed on the iconic Baguette designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi in 1997.
The entire collection was presented at the Design Miami/Basel international contemporary art show in 2019.
In a fast-changing sector, creative freedom and entrepreneurial spirit remain more than ever fundamental values for Maison Francis Kurkdjian. The international appeal and development of the Maison will continue alongside loyal partners who value its distinctive character and authenticity.
