Product Description:

Light streams through darkness; Aqua Vitae Forte, dense yet translucent, a floral citric classic. Sicilian mandarin, Calabrian bergamot and lemon are paired with Ceylon cinnamon, Guatemalan cardamom and Sichuan pink pepper. Spice scintillates fruit, preserving the awakening sweet-tart effect of fruit, and simultaneously singing these sour notes into softer, caramel tones. These jammy (or marmalade-like) top notes sets Aqua Vitae Forte on its course, toward an eventual orange opaqueness, that absorbs and reflects light like a polished nugget of gold.

Like light refracted through amber, or shimmering over white grey, mineral striped surface of an ancient Grecian temple, Aqua Vitae Forte conjures a regal, deific glamor. This multidimensional scent pops like a masterfully carved frieze, images of mortals, animals and flora seemingly in motion, despite the marble from which they’re carved.

The heart of this fragrance is a divine combining of Madagascan ylang-ylang and Tunisian orange blossom. Definitively sweet, these florals are also lightweight, yet they hold the heart of this fragrance steady, even as they smolder with unabashed, hungry sensuality. Sandalwood, vetiver and benzoin compile a soil-rich darkness that offsets all the luminous, sunny tones that precede the base. Terse yet pliant, these supporting notes dissolve quietly into skin, allowing the brilliant tones of this scent to sparkle, unremittingly, in the wear.

Aqua Vitae Forte shines like Sophia Loren in a Madame Gris inspired gown; a column of unbelievable beauty that is surprisingly approachable. An ideal effigy.

(bergamot, lemon, cardamom, cinnamon, sandalwood, mandarin, orange blossom, pink pepper, vetiver, ylang ylang)
