    It’s one of my favorite lines at the moment. So far, I’ve bought 5 of them: Absolue pour le Soir, Lumière Noire pour Homme, APOM pour Homme, Aqua Universalis Forte, which are terrific, and Absolue pour le Matin, which is pretty useful. If I have to choose only one as my favorite, it would be APOM.

    I think that Aqua Universalis Forte is woodier, deeper and much more prettier (or should I just say – more satisfying) than Aqua Universalis. It has terrific longevity and projection. It certainly won’t get award for the masculinity, but, when I tried it for the first time, I felt the same thing I felt with Lyric Man – Feminine or not, it’s just too beautiful and I have to have it. So, if a conservative 39 years old guy with a patriarchal education and very (and I mean VERY) traditional environment and pretty serious job can wear it…

    Couldn't agree more. Absolue Pour Le Soir is the gem in the collection.

    He's a great perfumer.

    The line is better than most, but if any of them sing it isn't long before they start mumbling.

    His Enlévement au Sérail for MDCI is one of the best fragrances of the last twenty years, and Promesse de l'Aube is right there with it.

    I'm still working on loving Lumiere Noir - unfortunately I'm having trouble smelling the rose or patchouli - so I know it's my problem...what I get is a pleasant green scent, very well blended that kind of bubbles along the way with a slightly different emphasis over time. Sigh. Right now I'm thinking I need my nose examined.

    I clicked immediately with Cologne pour Le Soir - got the honey and rose right away, and that will lead to wanting to try the rest of the house scents. Not liking the idea of a 200 ml bottle, however.

    I also enjoy MFK AU Fort'e especially for the spring/summer, it is very concentrated so I love how long it lingers on my skin.

    Unless I missed it, it looks like I'm the first one to say that Aqua Universalis is my favorite from the line. It's so delicate and transparent, but it still has impressive longevity. I especially love the floral heart.
    Current Top Five:
    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
    3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
    4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
    5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford

    I love how fresh and clean it is like being outside, I have used the Aqua Wash to make my clothes feel great.
    I know that might sound funny but its so unique and a little extra luxury.

    I have tried his new OUD and I think you would love it based on what you say about LN Homme.

    Oh my favorites for superstar perfumer francis kurkdjian

    are



    Lumiere noire pour homme - such old rose, understated decaying rose on my skin - it may sound negative but I also like this interpreation, unique and perfectly wearable



    Absolue pour le matin - light and fresh smelling

    Aqua Universalis is too clean and laundry scent for me; APOM though nice is too much for its asking retail price. The new offerings like oud series and amyris are just meh on me.

    Amyris smells like john varvatos platinum
