Show-stopping masculine scents are highly sought-after, but often they come with a price-tag. Our version of Baccarat Rouge 540 extrait commands attention, and best of all, it captures the rich, decadent scent of the original. If you like your cologne to be reminiscent of James Bond on a luxury yacht, this is a cologne you need to check out.
Here’s a lowdown of our iconic ‘inspired-by’ eau de parfum, and what to expect when you wear it.
Inspired by Baccarat Rouge 540 – the facts
- The original is regarded as one of the world’s most exclusive scents
- Top notes of jasmine and saffron
- Central notes of amber wood and ambergris
- Base notes of fir and cedar wood
We always recommend that people order an ‘inspired-by’ Baccarat Rouge 540 sample (UK-based, so delivery is usually within a few days). This gives you the perfect chance to check that it’s the right fragrance for you, as it’s potent and attention-grabbing!
The characteristics of this eau de parfum are:
- Warm wood. With deep fir and cedar wood complementing the lighter, more fragrant amber wood, this scent conjures up images of wood-panelled casinos and opulent surroundings.
- A hint of salt. Exclusive ambergris adds a hint of the ocean, which lifts this eau de parfum, giving it a touch of rugged masculinity.
- Exoticism. Saffron is a spicy, powerful scent, which brings to mind sultry nights in Morocco.
- Floral freshness. The gentle fragrance of jasmine blossom elevates the perfume further, with its breezy, fresh aroma.
With all these high-end ingredients, it’s little wonder that the original Baccarat Rouge 540 price is relatively high (and deservedly so). However, we’re proud of our alternative, which captures much of the elegance and sensuality of the original. If you’re looking for a classy option for your next special occasion, it’s an excellent choice.
Who would wear a fragrance like Baccarat Rouge 540 extrait?
Make no mistake, this designer eau de parfum is not for shy, retiring types. It’s packed full of potent, dramatic ingredients and is designed to get heads turning.
Our Baccarat Rouge 540 homage is no different. We’ve deliberately pumped up the olfactory volume to deliver a bold, uncompromising fragrance that is ideal as a signature scent. It’s custom-made for those who want to emphasise their authority at work, for example. It’s also fantastic when at a special event, as it’ll guarantee you stand out in the crowd.
That’s not to say it’s not suitable for more low-key occasions too. For example, it’s an alluring, sensual scent, which makes it a good choice for a hot date. It’s also great if you’re out on the town with friends and want to differentiate yourself.
The fragrance shifts subtly too. When you first apply it, you’ll notice that powerful punch of saffron; a heady spice that establishes itself quickly. Jasmine serves to soften this, adding sophistication and refinement.
As the day goes on, the warmer, woody fragrances come into play. They complement one another perfectly; the sharpness of fir is mellowed by the gentler scent of cedar wood. Amber wood is more complex and delivers a note of interest. As for the ambergris? It rounds the whole aroma off, toughening up the elegance and giving the fragrance that desirable touch of machismo.
The Baccarat Rouge 540 basenotes are particularly instrumental in terms of setting this scent apart. Fir is an unusual ingredient to use, and it adds a tangy richness that is instantly recognisable.
We’d recommend keeping this one for special occasions, though. It’s not really a daily-wear eau de parfum and might be overkill if you’re just spending the day in the garden with the family!
