Everyone I Know Has a Perfume From This Viral French Brand on Their Wish List

Best Maison Francis Kurkdjian perfumes for women

Even before TikTok discovered it, some of us were longtime fans of chic French perfume house Maison Francis Kurkdjian for its refined and complex scents. They're truly unlike anything I've ever smelled, and slowly, I'm building up a collection of my must-haves. The current TikTok favorite is definitely Baccarat Rouge 540, but I can almost guarantee it won't be the only scent from the brand to go viral. 

Whether you like something musky, woody, or a sweeter floral scent, Maison Francis Kurkdjian has something for you. I don't usually like to attach gender to fragrances, but I think this particular French house is so good at balancing traditionally feminine and masculine elements in each of its fragrances. They really do smell deliciously intoxicating on everyone. If you've been thinking of taking the plunge and investing in one yourself, keep scrolling below. I got a well-rounded list of the best sellers straight from the brand that will help you decide.

1. Baccarat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum

Key notes: jasmine, saffron, cedarwood, ambergris

I'm not usually a fan of vanilla-smelling perfumes, but this sophisticated scent remains a best seller (and TikTok-user obsession) due to its complex nature. There are so many different layers to it, from the lighter notes of jasmine to earthy cedarwood, but it never feels overly heavy.

2. Gentle Fluidity Gold Eau de Parfum

Key notes: juniper berry oil, nutmeg oil, coriander seed oil, musks, ambery woods, vanilla blend

Gentle Fluidity Gold is a sweet, warm, and alluring scent that is the counterpart to the brand's Silver edition. It may be a bit too sweet for some, but if you like an elegantly honey-ed perfume, it's just the pick for you.

Key notes: violet accord, damascena rose essence from Bulgaria, rose absolute from Turkey, natural oud from Laos, benzoin from Siam, amber, vanilla accord

Woody and slightly smoky, Oud Satin Mood is a shaded and complex scent that packs a punch. It's a best seller for the brand due to its intriguing and mysterious nature.

This MFK fragrance is definitely on the stronger side, but when you wear it, you'll exude a level of confidence and charm that is completely unmatched.

Key notes: Grapefruit accord, Damascena rose oil, ambery woody accord, sage oil, Centifolia rose absolute from Grasse, Cistus Labdanum oil

If you don't love traditional rose perfumes, this one has an edge to it. Although it contains Damascena rose oil at its heart, the burst of grapefruit and woodier notes give it a spin that makes it anything but ordinary.

7. Gentle Fluidity Silver Eau de Parfum

Key notes: juniper berries, nutmeg, coriander, musk, ambery woods, vanilla

The silver counterpart to Gentle Fluidity Gold, this fragrance features the same notes but slightly dialed up. It's a rich and inviting scent that smells luxurious and lasts for hours.

Key notes: iris from Florence, violet, rose from Grasse, jasmine from Egypt, lily of the valley, orange blossom, vetiver, patchouli from Indonesia

Féminin Pluriel is a bit on the powdery side, but if those types of fragrances work well for you, it's definitely worth adding to your collection. The floral notes of jasmine and lily of the valley really sing over a base of vetiver and patchouli.
