Kurkdjian creates bubble installation sans fizzy lifting drinks

Or something like that. The haute perfumer Maison Francis Kurkdjian is going to set Great Marlborough Street afloat tomorrow in partnership with Liberty of London with a bubble fest not seen since the likes of Wonka. However, Kurkdjian's bubbles smells of lovely fragrance as the man was once perfumer to labels like Aqua di Parma, Gaultier and Armani.

The scent of choice for said bubbles? Aqua Universalis, a clean scent with notes of bergamot, lemon, lily of the valley and musky wood. Let's hope it can compete with the puffs of food-scented smog that funnel out of surrounding restos. From 1pm to 8pm, Saturday, December 5th, the bubble installation will happen every hour. Kurkdjian is known in France for his bubble installation and last staged one at Versailles (how Marie Antoinette must be turning in her grave to miss such a spectacle).
