Lumiere Noire Pour Femme
Brand Maison Francis Kurkdjian
The name means “Black Light”, and black indeed is the light cast by Francis Kurkdjian on this thorny, Gothic rose chypre rooted in earthy patchouli…
This isn't the first time that Mr. K has worked the rose-patchouli duet – Guerlain Rose Barbare and Juliette Has a Gun Lady Vengeance both feature what he calls “the attraction of opposites”. In Lumière Noire Pour Femme, he intensifies the animal lurking between the deep red petals with the hay-tobacco facets of narcissus, a lash of indolic jasmine and a sprinkle of cumin. Pimiento heats up the stormy blend. This is perfume in the grand manner: unapologetically intense, romantic with abandon, and a perfect match for its virile soul mate, Lumière Noire Pour Homme.
