A beam of light bursting through darkness, Aqua Vitae forte is pure yet solid, a citric scent that withstands the test of time. Sicilian mandarin, Calabrian bergamot and lemon are paired with Ceylon cinnamon, Guatemalan cardamom and Sichuan pink pepper to great effect; spice highlights fruit, and stabilizes the refreshing sharp sweetness of the citrus, lending the top notes a caramelized, marmalade consistency. This concentrated opening puts Aqua Vitae forte on the road towards its eventual amber-thick intensity and golden resonance. Like light refracted through a sienna resin, or sparkling over aged marble, this scent evokes a sense of ancient glamor. This motif is reinforced in the heart of this fragrance by the divine, eternally beautiful union of Madagascan ylang-ylang and Tunisian orange blossom. Inarguably sweet, these florals are happily feather-light, yet they inhabit this important middle ground with verve, evoking an intelligent sensuality–a Zeus and Hera without any of the drama. Finally, sandalwood, vetiver and benzoin compose a base of rich earthiness. An alternately dry and sodden dirt supporting this parthenon of a fragrance, these elements crumble softly on skin. Aqua Vitae forte is like a backward glance at a vanishing paradise, hard to believe, yet impossible to forget. A predestined classic.
