Maison Francis Kurkdjian

Aqua Vitae

eau de toilette



Sensual, warm freshness.

This is a fragrance for the 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 sparkling 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."
