PARIS — Perfumer Francis Kurkdjian is adding a new duo to his fragrance wardrobe starting next month. Called Pluriel, there’s an iteration for women and one for men, meant to capture the multiplicity of life today and become modern classics.
He views the scents as part of his ready-to-wear line — versus the couture perfumes, with which he began his Maison Francis Kurkdjian business in 2009.
