The name is Latin for Universal Water, and the scent does what it says on the bottle. Francis Kurkdjian calls it the missing link between skin, clothes, bed linen and the air and he’s spot on. This light, sparkling Eau de Toilette could be spritzed by anyone, anywhere, anytime—but you’ll probably want to save it for your skin, since you can scent your house with the Aqua Universalis candle or incense paper, and launder your clothes with the matching detergent.
With its sweet-as-a-kiss orange blossom and lily of the valley bouquet, brightened with citrus notes and a burst of aldehydes on a cottony cloud of white musks, Aqua Universalis is possibly the most refined interpretation ever of the fresh-out-of-the-shower, fresh-out-of-the-dryer smell. In a word, the ultimate stealth scent.
