Kurkdjian’s gorgeous ode to a summer afternoon opens with a sparkling combination of Calabrian lemon and Sicilian mandarin, evoking the sensual fullness of “uncontained freshness.” Dazzling Hedione adds with the warmth of the sun while waves of tonka bean and vanilla counter with a cooling breeze. In its final phase, Aqua Vitae softens to a sunkissed, sandy drydown. By no means is it a fresh dab of coppertone – no beachy coconut here, but rather a whisper of vanilla-sweetened guaiac lingering close to the skin. It’s a gentle reminder of summer afternoon caught on the skin, still warm from the sun.
