The Maison Francis Kurkdjian Aqua Vitae scent is carnal by nature and delicate in essence. It is fresh on the skin but sets the senses reeling. Kurkdjian imagined an eau de toilette with spicy notes, followed by waves of tonka bean and vanilla caresses, in which the Calabrese lemon dances and the Sicilian mandarin plays. Hedione shines through it like a dazzling sun, carried on high guaiac wood.
Olfactory family: Musky, woody, and citrusy.
Composition: Lemon from Calabria, mandarin from Sicily, tonka bean from Brazil, vanilla infusion, hedione and guaiac wood.
