APOM is short for “A Piece of Me” – “a piece of oneself that one leaves on others”, says Francis Kurkdjian. In other words: APOM might well be a kiss-and-tell, which doesn’t matter since the fragrance comes in a feminine and masculine version, both drenched in orange blossom as lusciously honeyed as a bite-sized oriental pastry.
The headiness of the orange blossom – one of Francis Kurkdjian’s favorite notes, featured in Narciso Rodriguez for Her, Acqua di Parma Iris Nobile and Jean-Paul Gaultier Fleur du Mâle – is underlined by the suave spiciness of ylang-ylang, with just a hint of green to freshen it up and a cloud of powder to smooth it down. This sultry white floral bouquet reclines like an odalisque on a dry cedar bed, ready to rub off on her male counterpart, APOM Pour Homme. Wear A Piece of Me. Get nibbled by Him.
