With this latest opus, Maison Francis Kurkdjian celebrates the gentle feel of summer, bathed in light and warmth, with an array of floral and sunny notes.

Aqua Vitae Forte eau de parfum, a floral-citrusy-woody scent, opens on notes of mandarin from Sicily and bergamot and lemon from Calabria, to which are added a trio of spices composed of Ceylon cinnamon, Guatemalan cardamom and pink Szechuan pepper.

The heart of the fragrance blends orange blossom from Tunisia with hints of ylang-ylang from Madagascar, a combination that is elevated by bouquets of sandalwood from Mysore and vetiver from Haiti.

This new unisex fragrance will be available for purchase as of August 15 in Maison Francis Kurkdjian stores and from authorized resellers.
