Lightly smoked fresh package
Today I would like to deal with my Christmas present from my favourite perfumery. First of all: I don't understand how the ladies and gentlemen of the perfumery could have come up with the idea that this fragrance is appropriate for the Christmas season. The truth is: it could hardly be any more summery. But somehow it has its good sides: I would never have tried this fragrance by myself.

The scent is relatively linear for my perception, I perceive the lime most strongly. One of my favourite citrus fruits, with the vodka soda being an elementary component of my signature drink. So you're enjoying this already. Petitgrain gives the whole thing a certain complexity, I perceive it as a bit smoky. This sets him apart from the blue-green Tom Fords, where the Mandarino di Amalfi has been my favourite so far. Shelf life is more than good for a fresh citrus scent, but that's why you buy the Forte.

I am actually a lover of heavy fragrances. Oud, frankincense and amber are my favourite ingredients. But I still like the Aqua Celestia Forte very much. Good thing I got it as a present. Because otherwise I would never get such a fresh smell. Now I finally have a fragrance that is really good to wear on the beach. Or even a fragrance that gives you a feeling of freshness without a shower. And this without being a typical washing gel scent. All thanks to the additional petitgrain!

Conclusion: A very fresh scent that is not even that fresh and should be worn on the beach or on really hot days in order to be really effective. Could also well imagine to layern him with one of my heavier scents.

Cheers!

More of a lady's favorite ylang ylang lotion.
Disappointed, it's more feminine, and smells, oddly, a lot more floral than the note list leads you to believe.

Notes like lime and mint had me hoping for something "brighter" but it actually ends up smelling muted like lotion with ylang ylang as the centrepiece.

It's been a long time since I have written a comment... I would like to share my impressions only briefly.
Although this perfume doesn't completely turn my head, I still stick to it..it doesn't let me go..
The title Forte, like Kurkdjian's other creations, is fully appropriate in comparison.
The fragrance is more intense, has more profile, more body and the shelf life is significantly longer. As with other Fortes, the shelf life is a good 12 hours. DaveGahan's description with the word "richer" fits it well.
Aqua Celestia Forte (as with Francis' other waters) definitely has the DNA of its lighter predecessor Aqua Celestia.
This fragrance combines an intense freshness with a heaviness that still makes me want to fall in love completely.
In my perception the scent is rather two-dimensional, but by no means boring. With this perfume I don't experience any surprising changes in the scent line, as a Roja can. But that doesn't stop him The beginning is fresh and lively and becomes sweet and full in the course of time. Here the jasmine makes its place and pushes aside the effervescence of the petitgrain. However, the freshness is retained. Throughout. I can't tell if it's just the mix of the fragrances mentioned or if Kurkdjian has added more magic notes; I only perceive very delicate rosy notes... ; but the fragrance cloud is wonderful to heavenly.
This fragrance mix remains like this until the end.
It would be too banal to label it a clean scent. But he has a clean and creamy aura. With depth and contours.
In the first moments I had the association of a fairy scent, but the more often I wear the scent, the more images of dance and thunderous waves on the Atlantic coast appear in my head.
I find the fragrance rather feminine, but I could imagine it being exciting on a man.

After the many years in the world of fragrances MFK crystallizes to my favorite ...
