Maison Francis Kurkdjian Gentle Fluidity
Buying art is a journey and the same can be said with fragrances because after all it is an exquisite form of art in itself. To understand the creation process, one should also get to know the master perfumer as we did with the legendary Francis Kurkdjian, the man behind the perfume house of his namesake, Maison Francis Kurkdjian.
Beyond the luxurious bottle that captures the new fragrance named Gentle Fluidity by Maison Francis Kurkdjian lies authentic craftsmanship and creative wonder. His two Eaux de parfum are a journey beyond the concept of perfumery for women, men or mixed. It encompasses all gender identities, derived from two utterly different olfactory worlds. One features a woody, aromatic scent while the other musky, oriental notes. The mystery of creation behind similar ingredients yet different balances. This scent is perfect for any occasion no matter the time of day. Gentle Fluidity is available at Joyce Beauty Stores in Hong Kong
