Francis Kurkdjian

Francis Kurkdjian was born in Paris in 1969 to an ethnic Armenian family who are all survivors of the Armenian genocide. He is an award winning contemporary parfumer.  Francis has won a Prix Francois Coty in 2001 which is the most honorable price a parfumer can achieve in France. He has also created many scents during the past years becoming one of the most popular parfumers in the world. 

One of the worlds best selling parfumes was created through a collaboration between Francis and the famous French designer Jean Paul Gaultier. The scent was Francis’s first success as the parfume getting the name “Le Male” created in 1995 is still selling in highly records till our days. He later on created roundly fourty parfumes with the biggest names in the parfume and fashion world. Some of the giant companies that Francis Kurkdjian has made scents for are Dior, Escada, Lancome, Giorgio Armani, Guerlain, Davidoff, Elie Saab, Lanvin, Kenzo and so on. 

Being a perfumer is a bit like being a magician, it’s about realising your vision of someone else’s emotions. It took all my energy for six months to come up with the right formula for Rumeur because for me it’s not just about mixing raw materials, it’s about creating a memory that will last. — Francis Kurkdjian

Francis is also known for recreating the Papier d’Armenie which is a deodaryzing product with a pleasant and subtle smell made of so called Armenian paper and is infused with benzoin resin,which is a balsamic resin obtained from the bark of species of trees of Styrax. The Papier d’Armenie is widely sold at any pharmacy in France.

In 2001 Kurkdjian opened his fragrance atelier and in 2009 his own luxury fragrance house called “Maison Francis Kurkdjian”. The year before Francis was honored by the French government the “Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres” / “Knight of order of arts and letters” and continues making magic scents til’ today.
