Aqua Universalis Forte Eau de parfum is an intense version of the sunny and luminous freshness of Aqua Universalis. With a reminiscence, a fizz and a tenfold intensity brought by green Calabrian bergamot, Egyptian jasmine absolute, Moroccan rose absolute, and musky light cedarwood.
Initially extracted from Tibetan musk deer, natural musk has been banned in perfumery since 1973. Synthetic molecules designed to replace it appeared in the late 19th century, so today there is a wide selection of musky notes with an olfactory palette ranging from fruity to woody to animalic facets.
Musks are very persistent and relatively low-volatile base notes. They have been used extensively in soaps and fabric softeners, and are commonly referred to as white musks because they evoke the scent of clean, soft, fluffy laundry, and recall a sense of tenderness and comfort suitable for all types of fragrances. With their inimitable softness, much appreciated by the general public, musky notes are present today in the vast majority of women's and men's perfumes.
