With its soft blend of balsamic benzoin, honeyed rose and meditative incense, Cologne pour le Soir was intended for cosy dinners and evenings by the fireplace easing into a quiet, tender night. Absolue pour le Soir is its polar opposite: a fragrance for a night on the town.
While retaining the Cologne’s core accord, Francis Kurkdjian has added a distinctly animalic whiff of cumin and smoky sandalwood; Atlas cedarwood lends its rich, leathery tinge; ylang-ylang fleshes out the floral heart.
Slightly naughty and totally distinctive, Maison Francis Kurkdjian Absolue pour le Soir’s feline sillage, boosted by heated flesh, lasts well past twelve hours. Spritz it on and dance.
