What is Baccarat Rouge 540 and why is there such a social media obsession with this fragrance?

This unisex perfume was created by famed perfume house Maison Francis Kurkdjian. It has a sweet and juicy blood-orange scent with notes of lavender, sage, and leathery saffron. 

And because it has been pegged as one of the best fragrances in the world in recent years according to its many internet fans, other brands have tried to replicate its scent for a more affordable price (an original bottle of Baccarat Rouge 540 will run you upwards of $280 online).

These Baccarat Rouge 540 dupes are not perfect replicas, but they're close enough to make you feel as if you're wearing Baccarat Rouge 540.
