Aqua Vitae

eau de toilette

Add to Wishlist


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 heeft nauwelijks verdere introductie nodig: een sterparfumeur die al jaren geuren creëert voor grote mode merken (waaronder Le Mâle, Narcissco Rodriguez for Her, Burberry en Lady Vengeance), alsmede bespoke (op maat) creaties voor privé clientèle. Met een grote elegantie weet Kurkdjian de twee culturen van zijn Frans-Armeense afkomst te combineren in geuren met een natuurlijke rijkdom.
Kurkdjian is veelzijdig, creatief en een visionair. Zijn collectie is opgebouwd als een parfum-garderobe voor verschillende momenten, emoties en stemmingen.
