Aqua Universalis Cologne Forte

Unique in its style, this perfume celebrates the joy of whiteness. When we think of the colour white it sparks a feeling/ vision of radiant notes, a breath of fresh air. Composed of fresh citrus notes underlined by woody & musky hints. The fragrance is available in 3 sizes: 35ml, 70ml and 200ml. Dressed in a clear, modern glass bottle, light beams through it. Revealing just as much light as its fragrance.

The Notes

The essence of Bergamot from Italy, Essence of Rose from Bulgaria, White Floral accord(Mock Orange, Sweet Peas), White Musk Accord

Musks

Natural musk has been forbidden in perfumery since 1973. This is as it originally comes from animals. Modern parfumerie replaced it with synthetic molecules. Musks are very persistent and relatively non-volatile base notes. This means they add longevity to your perfume. They usually remind us of the scent of soft, fluffy clean linen and deeply comfort us.

Damascena Rose

This fragrance contains Rosa Damascena and is used for its honeyed accents and a slightly spicy scent. They use a rose absolute which has generous rosy floral notes and is used mainly in the heart and base of a fragrance.

Bergamot from Calabria

The fresh, sparkling fragrance is most often used in the top notes, meaning it is the first thing you smell. It brings a kind of “smile” to the perfume. Overall, keeping it fresh, floral and aromatic.

My Review

This brand has a special place in my heart. I have been using the Aqua universally cologne forte for a couple of days now.

First, let's talk about the fragrance. This is a perfume for floral lovers. From the first spray, I could smell white flowers' smooth, fresh scent. Indeed inside are multiple flowers: musk, mock orange and sweet pea. I was happy that the brand didn't create the usual over-powdered effect in this type of fragrance. Also, it is important to understand that although it is named “forte” it is not stronger than the original Aqua Universalis. Not only does it smell like clean, comfortable bed sheets. It also lasts a long time. Meaning I sprayed it on in the morning and in the evening I could still smell it. The only note that disappeared is the citrus note. But I was expecting that. It has a light wake, meaning it won't disturb your work partners. With this type of fragrance, I would advise applying a neutral body lotion or adding a couple of sprays to your hairbrush for a more impacting scent.
