PARIS — After three years in business, Maison Francis Kurkdjian has come a long way. The brand will be profitable for the first time this year and see revenue growth of 50 percent, chief executive officer and cofounder Marc Chaya revealed.
The growth comes after a period of soul searching in 2011 for the independent brand, set up in 2009 by Chaya and perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, the talented nose behind best-selling scents like Le Mâle by Jean Paul Gaultier and Narciso Rodriguez’s namesake fragrance.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
