I just discovered MFK and his work is fabulous. If you want to smell fresh, sexy, and clean, this perfume is for you!

My go-to scent for conferences, weddings, the opera and when I need fresh air in otherwise dingy places. Most frags turn a bit vinegary on me, but not this one. It’s not soapy on me, but definitely has a ‘clean’ vibe. I always get compliments when I wear this — even from very young women. Estée Lauder’s Private Collection Jasmine & Gardenia is a close cousin, but this smells classier, fresher & lighter.

Definitely the pinnacle of "clean laundry" scents, it smells like incredibly expensive soap and musk. If I had room in my collection for another skin scent I'd certainly consider it, but it smells like a soapier version of my ride-or-die Clean Skin Reserve which is less than half the price so I'll stick with what I have already. If you love fresh laundry/clean skin type scents though you should try a sample of this, it's one of the ones where I keep sniffing my arm because it's just that nice.

Not being a fan of unisex, I went back and forth on this fragrance several times. First, I would think "No, not feminine enough" then, "What an intriguing fragrance!". After I put on my sample I went to an event where I was seated VERY tightly between a man and a woman. I'm happy to say that I couldn't have imagined a better scent to have been wearing at the time. I smelled clean and fresh, classy, modern and not the least bit overwhelming. Another thing, it works with my chemistry to get more girly over time. Seriously, interesting fragrance. Try a sample.

I put this on at Neiman Marcus last December and fell in love with it. Asked for a big bottle at Christmas and was delighted to receive it. Put it on...and pushed the bottle to the back of my cabinet. It was too acidic, too stringent. The scent I put on at NM was lemony sweet, softened with bergamot and musk--it was also a bottle that was, I realized, older than the new one I received. So, I kept mine at the back of the cabinet, away from the sun, and figured that some scents age better than others. I've sprayed it on about once a month since then and it has softened over time. It is mellowing and smells closer to what I put on last December. I like the summery crispness of it, but it still needs some time to mellow.

I am a big-time Francis Kurkdjian fan. I really enjoy the clean, fresh scent of Aqua Universalis (also bought the laundry detergent and scented leather bracelet - can't get enough!).

I am not normally a fan of unisex scents, but I love this! Clean and fresh, but still delicate and lovely -- no laundry detergent here.

I am sooooooo picky with what fragrance I wear and have fallen hard for this one. I've been wearing my samples every day now for 2 weeks. I wore it to a wedding one night and my husband commented that he liked the way I smelled. It's great for day and for a night time affair because it's just so fresh and elegant. A scent with class. You feel good wearing it.

Too funny! Of course it's gonna be watery....ummmm....aqua? I think it's exactly what it advertises itself to be. Not my thing but I can see how it would make a lot of people happy. It's almost a dead ringer for Korres Iris Lily of the Valley Cotton. Really really close. I'd like to see a scent that's all of the things this line is for the home that doesn't smell like that's what it's made for. Until then~this is light, inoffensive,and smells like walking around in really clean sheets. If that's your dream~look no further!

Watery. Smells like a very weak and inexpensive drug store type fragrance for teens or preteens. Not offensive but really rather underwhelming.

nice, clean, fresh, yet feminine scent.

Amway detergent and fabric softener circa 1975. Alas.

Nice clean scent that is both comforting & uplifting. Not too citrussy & definitely does not smell like laundry detergent.
