I’ve heard of posh laundry liquids before – I’ve used a Tocca one ages and ages ago – but I have to admit to being totally in love with Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s range of Aqua Universalis Washing Liquids. They’re ridiculously priced at £29 each so it’s an addiction I’ll just have to get over, but if I had all the money in the world, there’s no doubt that I’d choose it over and over (that being the financial case, I’d be handing it to someone else to take care of my washing, of course!). So, what’s so good that one bottle is the best part of £30? For one, the liquids are actually very good at cleaning (but then, so is Persil), but it’s reason two that got me hooked. The fragrance. There is nothing nicer than hanging laundry that scents the whole house with a fresh, clean smell (even more intense when it’s still wet) of bergamot, lemon and hints of lily of the valley. It is a unisex scent that doesn’t overpower your clothes but just lingers in a subtle, delicate way.
I’m not even going to attempt to justify the price – I can’t. But it will stay firmly on my wishlist and next time I use it I’ll keep it for linens and towels because there is truly nothing as indulgent as climbing into a clean-sheet bed that emits a smell that just makes you sigh with delight.
