For a warmer, spicier fragrance with the same depth and complexity, try Maison Francis Kurkdjian Aqua Vitae.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian

Birchbox Breakdown

As the original scent from Maison Francis Kurkdjian, this fragrance has special significance. A bright floral blend, with the slightest touch of musk, its aroma captures the fresh, splendid feeling of the first few days of spring. The result is a feel-good fragrance that can’t help but inspire optimism: An olfactory ode to sunny mornings and new beginnings.

How it Works

A consummate warm-weather fragrance, this versatile scent can be worn by anyone, anywhere. Calabrian bergamot and Sicilian citron lead to bright floral mid notes, followed by a lightweight base of aromatic wood and musk.

How to Use

Apply sparingly to pulse points, like your wrist and neck. The scent is light but potent, so if you think you’ve applied too much, chances are you have.

Perfection!

Absolute perfection in a bottle. I'm not even certain how to describe it…I've seen many reviews mention summer or spring, but it's become my year round go to scent. Francis Kurkdjian says "A good perfume is one where you can't tell if someone is wearing something or not - when the scent and the person become one." This perfume is the embodiment of that quote - deliciously elegant, yet gracefully light.

My wife really enjoyed this cologne, which is really what matters - but I thought it was just a bit spicy for my taste. It did mellow out a bit into the day and matured well. It just didnt match me perfectly. price would be prohibitive as well.

REALLY nice fragrance
Sampled

I used the sample twice and still have enough for a third time. I received many compliments on the fragrance, and appreciated its "staying power." Will seriously consider purchasing, even though it is rather pricey.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Aqua Universalis Eau de Toilette

Smells great! This is my new favorite scent... for now. I can't think of an occasion where this scent wouldn't be appropriate.

nice cologne

I enjoyed this product; the smell was good but not too overpowering. I am picky about colognes and typically don't wear any. Can't say that I would purchase this one.

Too perfumy

It smelled like a granny cologne, not nearly masculine enough. I'd feel embarrassed wearing this to work.

pretty nice

At first when I received this product in my box I wasn't 100% on it because im not normally a fragrance type of person. After i tried it out for a day or two both my girlfriend and I really ended up loving how it smells. I'm not the type of person that can pick out individual scents that are mixed within a certain smell im kind of an all in one type of person.

I'm usually pretty set on my smell, I haven't changed it in two years because I know what suits me.
