Apom Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian Cologne. Like its female counterpart Apom Femme, Apom Homme features notes of orange flower and cedar wood.
But this cologne, created in 2009, also includes amber to create a light yet masculine scent.
To become a successful perfumer, Francis Kurkdjian used the determination and discipline he learned as a pianist and ballet dancer. He spent years studying the art of perfuming before creating his first fragrance, Le Mâle, for Jean Paul Gaultier in 1993.
Since then, he has produced perfumes for several major events, specifically the Ministry of Culture's 2007 Christmas party and the 100th anniversary of the Entente Cordiale agreement between France and England. Kurkdjian has even made scents for pastry chef Christophe Michalak and has also worked for Guerlain and Acqua di Parma. In 2009, Kurkdjian teamed up with Marc Chaya to form the Maison Francis Kurkdjian perfume house. Kurkdjian relies on a variety of notes in his fragrances, including the famed oud wood.
