Reviews of Aqua Vitae

What starts with bitter citrus turns rapidly very sweet with vanilla and tonka, still maintaining a bit of the freshness from the opening. There is something dirty and floral, like jasmine, but at the same time the combination starts to feel synthetic. It doesn't do much for me, it's average at best.

Smells like a more modern, less harsh, less animalic take on Lalique pour Homme.

What some describe as metallic is the hedione that's in here in its racemic form. To me it smells like a synthetic citrus with a clean muskiness, florals that don't come from actual flowers, some rubbing alcohol, and a slight metallicness.

Thanks to Aqua Vitae I now recognize that it's also hedione that's in Lalique pour Homme even though that one doesn't explicitly list it but lists jasmine and citrus in stead. Which hedione can all mimic.

The ingredients are all very subtle and smooth as only Kurkdjian does it. Only disappointment once again is that he's so keen on classical perfumery for his own house, disregarding contemporary except to tweak classical into something that's easier to wear. At least for as far as I've sampled his MFK line.

Metallic citrus and woody florals. Has a similar feel to a toned-down Dior Homme Sport. It's nice and bright into the drydown but the soft florals really start to push this past unisex and into fem for me. Has an almost hairspray vibe the deeper into the drydown you go.

Projection is average and longevity is very good, 8-9 hours.

I love the opening of Aqua Vitae. It is a very fresh and clean from lemon and mandarine that wanes quickly to take on the IsoE woodiness with some tonka. I enjoyed this more than I did Aqua Universalis, and would probably consider getting a decant of this one.

I love to wear this perfume ,most at the morning when I need something fresh for the morning. The lasting is very good :)

Starts out with a citrus (lemon) kick with a metallic side kick. Quickly turns into a lightly woody fragrance. A summer gem. I will be getting a bottle of this soon.7.5/10
