Maison Francis Kurkdjian

Aqua Vitae

eau de toilette



This is a fragrance for skin, the delicious whisper of Aqua Vitae triggers an irresistible craving for tender kisses on the neck.
This eau de toilette awakens the senses, tickled by lemon from Calabria, mandarin from Sicily, hedione, vanilla absolute, tonka bean and guaiac wood.

A quote from a review by Persolaise: "Kurkdjian says he was inspired to create it by a single phrase - "the space between us" - which struck him as poetic and evocative on a very personal level. I'd assert that he's created an olfactory representation of those words with commendable accuracy.
Aqua Vitae is bright and life-affirming, but it's also haunting and soulfully retrospective. I still maintain that Get Lippie said it best - this really does feel like a hug in the past - but if I were pushed to come up with my own pithy one-liner, I think it would go something like this. Aqua Vitae is Kurkdjian's deceptively simple story about that most powerful of subjects: the memory of perfume."

Maison Francis Kurkdjian

“The beauty of perfume speaks at once of the intimate and the universal. No dictum can be imposed on perfume. Its magic escapes all control and we are obliged to let it speak of our emotions however free and primitive..." - Francis Kurkdjian

Francis Kurkdjian hardly needs any further introduction: a star perfumer who has been creating scents for impressive fashion brands including Le Mâle, Narcissco Rodriguez for Her, Burberry and Lady Vengeance for years now. On top of that, he is praised for his bespoke creations for private customers. With great elegance, Kurkdjian knows how to combine the two cultures from his French-Armenian background into scents with a natural wealth.
Kurkdjian is versatile, creative and a visionary. His collection is built-up like a perfume-wardrobe for different moments, emotions and moods.
