Maison Francis Kurkdjian will launch Aqua Vitae Forte in August. The new unisex fragrance is a flanker to 2013's Aqua Vitae, and was inspired by the 'meeting of water and sun'.
Notes for the citrus floral woody fragrance include mandarin, bergamot, lemon, cinnamon, cardamom, pink pepper, orange blossom, ylang ylang, sandalwood and vetiver.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Aqua Vitae Forte will be available in 70 ml Eau de Toilette.
Sounds rather nice, assuming the cinnamon and pink pepper behave themselves.
It’s really good. It’s been long enough since I got a chance to smell it that I can’t trust myself to describe it accurately, but I remember liking it quite a bit more than the original. A bit more sandalwood and cardamom I think? But my nose picks up on cardamom more than the average persons’ does, if Fragrantica notes listings are to be believed.
Thanks for the report!
