Baccarat is one of those rare table games that can be enjoyed by anyone with a basic understanding of the rules. That’s perhaps why it’s so popular in casinos, and also featured prominently in the James Bond film Casino Royale – proof that this is a game that has universal appeal.
In baccarat, you bet on either the Banker, the Player, or a tie. The dealer then deals two cards to each hand, and the winning hand is the one that comes closest to nine points.

The Baccarat Rouge 540 fragrance was released in 2015. It features top notes of Saffron and Jasmine, while the middle is a combination of Amberwood and Ambergris. The base is made of fir resin and cedar, with a touch of vanilla orchid for a subtle warmth that adds depth to this luxurious scent. As the name suggests, the scent was created by Maison Francis Kurkdjian to evoke the alchemy of crystal making – it is woody, floral and resinous all at once, without any one note overpowering another.
