Maison Francis Kurkdjian has launched the Collection Cologne Forte, with three fragrances: Aqua Universalis Cologne Forte, Aqua Vitae Cologne Forte and Aqua Celestia Cologne Forte.
Collection Cologne forte is an invitation to travel towards a destination steeped in light, colors and freshness. Mostly provided by the bergamot -the fundamental ingredient of the traditional eau de Cologne-, freshness plays the leading role in these new creations of the Maison’s olfactory wardrobe.
Aqua Universalis Cologne Forte ~ a flanker to 2009’s Aqua Universalis; follows 2011’s Aqua Universalis Forte. “Bergamot from Calabria and the sweetness of a white musk accord are intertwined with an effervescent surge of diaphanous white flowers, such as mock orange and sweet pea. Aqua Universalis Cologne forte embodies the joy of whiteness, radiance, the purity of a breath of fresh, enveloping air.” Additional notes include rose.
Aqua Vitae Cologne Forte ~ a flanker to 2013’s Aqua Vitae; follows 2015’s Aqua Vitae Forte. “Mandarin from Italy gives bright freshness to the bergamot, leading to a luminous citrusy and sunny floral scent. Vibrating in unison in a halo of warm light, Aqua Vitae Cologne forte is a pampering eau de parfum whose trail is saturated with sun and sensual musks boosted by sandalwood from India.”
Aqua Celestia Cologne Forte ~ a flanker to 2017’s Aqua Celestia; follows 2018’s Aqua Celestia Forte. “The bergamot becomes tinged with the fruity notes of blackcurrant, mimosa (with its raspberry and blackberry facets), and jasmine (strawberry, apricot and peach accents), before gradually melting into the mellowness of a fruity musky accord. Aqua Celestia Cologne forte releases a bright, crystal-clear aura and offers a flight towards the horizon.”
Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s Collection Cologne Forte fragrances are available now at Arielle Shoshana, $225 each for 70 ml Eau de Parfum.
