You may think it is odd that I am essentially saying laundry detergent is my beauty VIP of the week but Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s Washing Liquids is laundry detergent beautified. It is all about the fragrance it leaves behind. You can use it on your delicates as well as linens.
I have been interested in this line since I first spied their Les Bulles d’Agathe, perfume scented bubbles. I got a chance to play with them in New York at Bergdorf’s a few weeks ago and loved them, so much fun. You only smell the notes when the bubble is burst. I didn’t cave on the bubbles at the time but while I was at the counter, I discovered Aqua Universalis. It is a beautiful cologne that is as refreshing and light on women as it is on men. I became immediately obsessed with that scent at that very moment and am handling my sample vial with care.
Aqua Universalis has notes of bergamot, lemon, lily and musk. The scent is great on skin but I’m totally loving it on my sheets and blankets. The scent has lasted longer than I expected it to, I used this detergent 5 days ago and I can still smell the fragrance when I get into bed at night or snuggle with my chenille blanket on the couch. There really is nothing more comforting than a snuggling up with a soft blanket scented with a fragrance like this.
These washing liquids retails for 45 for 35oz bottles, which give you about 20 washes. It is available for dark colors and as a fabric softener as well. It is expensive for detergent but I’ve been using this very sparingly to make it last. It definitely makes a boring chore like doing laundry a little more pleasant. When you use this on your delicates and wear the perfume, it takes layering to the next level!
