  5. Re: Maison Francis Kurkdjian - Aqua Celestia FORTE EDP

    The markups over here don't make sense sometimes.
    In Euros ..

    Celestia 130.00 / 225.00 € for 70 / 200ml (SGD208/360)
    C.Forte 175€ for 70ml (SGD280)

    C.Forte has more prominent black currant, citrus and musk notes, fruiter with much better longevity.
    I personally prefer the original, the price point here also makes the decision easier.
