Maison Francis Kurkdjian joins the LVMH group

Driven by a shared vision of French perfumery and its creativity, the LVMH group and Maison Francis Kurkdjian have decided to join forces to pursue the long-term development of the House. This enthusiastic agreement includes the transfer of a majority stake to LVMH. Marc Chaya and Francis Kurkdjian, respectively President and Creative Director, will retain their positions and remain shareholders in the company.

mfk-francis-kurkdjiannathalie-baetens-2As a perfume composer, Francis Kurkdjian designs, with and for the greatest names in beauty and fashion, a visionary perfume that combines high standards and modernity. He has notably collaborated with some of the LVMH group's Houses (Acqua di Parma, Christian Dior, Guerlain and recently Kenzo). For more than twenty years, he has been offering new territories of expression to perfume through the creation of his custom-made perfume workshop, his artistic collaborations and his ephemeral installations. He was made a Chevalier des Arts et Lettres in 2008. A former partner at Ernst & Young in Paris, Marc Chaya and the perfumer have formed a designer-manager duo since they co-founded Maison Francis Kurkdjian in 2009.

LVMH's acquisition of a majority stake in Maison Francis Kurkdjian will enable the company to continue its development, particularly internationally, while respecting its uniqueness, its quality requirements and its creative freedom.

" We share with the LVMH group the same spirit of creation, excellence and entrepreneurship. This merger was built around a common vision and we will continue to oversee the destiny of the House within an exceptional group. "says Marc Chaya.
