This is a digest of the masculinity seen by Armani and associated with the freshness of the island dear to the heart of its creator.

Giorgio Armani’s source of inspiration

In order to develop his most beautiful pieces, Giorgio Armani needs to recharge his batteries and it is precisely on the island of Pantelleria that he finds his creative inspiration. It is a small piece of Italian land, located in the center of the Sicilian canal and close to Tunisia. Also, Acqua Di Gio pour Homme appears as a juice as revitalizing as this place. It is inspired by a simple and primary image: that of a man facing the mother. It evokes the freshness of water and spray, the mineral aspect of cliffs,… It seems to have taken the best of nature to bring it together in one and the same bottle. Acqua Di Gio pour Homme would be almost enough to make you hear the sound of the waves washing up on the shore of this island. Acqua Di Gio pour Homme is the perfume of an urban and contemporary man needing to return to his primary balance by recharging his batteries in the heart of nature. It is a very harmonious juice, at the same time sensual, powerful, wild and serene. So, with such qualities, it is no wonder that this perfume has seduced men for more than 20 years now!

The marine freshness of Acqua Di Gio for Men

It is the perfumer Alberto Morillas who has been entrusted with the task of transcribing the positive energy of Giorgio Armani when he is on his favorite island. He then chose to deliver us a transparent and sparkling freshness. It begins with an intense liveliness associating hedione with jasmine. What is more, this unique combination is further enhanced by a more unusual note: that of khaki. This little fruit instantly awakens the senses with its half pulpy, half zesty scent. Then, marine notes make their entry thanks to the presence of calone, a molecule with the typical flavor of sea spray. Thus, Acqua Di Gio pour Homme appears as a scent that is both sweet and bitter, very nuanced. Then, little by little, he displays more masculinity. This emanates from woody notes and musky nuances. In addition, Acqua Di Gio pour Homme ends with a blend of patchouli, cedar and cistus. The whole thing remains however always very fresh.

Acqua di Gio is certainly the bestseller of the perfume house of the great couturier Giorgio Armani. Why? Quite simply because Acqua di Gio has known how to please men by offering them for the first time a fresh, iodized but very manly scent. Where classic ferns lack originality, Alberto Morillas’ innovative composition for Acqua di Gio surprises and captivates while speaking so well of the favorite lands of the great Giorgio Armani.

Aqua di Gio or Italy and its natural beauties seen by perfumer Alberto Morillas for Giorgio Armani

Giorgio Armani wanted to offer these gentlemen a masculine scent that was both racy but above all very natural, very raw. By addressing Alberto Morillas, the couturier already knew that the creator and author of the innovative CK One would be the perfect composer of this ode to nature.

For Alberto Morillas, the choices of raw materials and directions for the Acqua di Gio project are very clear: each ingredient, each accord must evoke the pleasure of the seaside and the typical scents of the Mediterranean. It is also the island of Pantelleria, the place of predilection of Giorgio Armani which will inspire this scented work to the Spanish designer.

Anyway, the goal of Acqua di Gio seems to offer a natural and timeless Italy in a bottle. The raw materials were all chosen in this sense:

“ We decided to choose the best bergamot, the most beautiful mandarin. Elements, essences that evoke Italy but an Italy without a precise period, an Italy of Nature. We wanted to mix products that evoke an era while appealing to a freshness, a timeless luminosity. “Alberto Morillas on Acqua di Gio.

An unforgettable smell of transparent and flowery iodine for Acqua di Gio

With Acqua di Gio, Alberto Morillas and Giorgio Armani wanted to transcribe the natural beauties of Italy but also the marine scents of the gentle Mediterranean. However, while other magnificent fragrances have already made this choice when they released it from Acqua di Gio in 1996, none had been able to transcribe the iodine scents by making them flowery and very Italian. This is undoubtedly the point that created the great success of Acqua di Gio.

“What probably revolutionized this new freshness is iodine: a transparent, flowery iodine, with texture and depth. easily that penetrate the memory. Associated with the famous cologne, it recalls this salty water, the entire Mediterranean, the South: that is certainly why people love this fragrance so much “& nbsp; Alberto Morillas for Acqua di Gio.

Thus limes and bergamots from Italy associated with a sweet melon sublimate the heart of hedione and calone from Acqua di Gio. Hedione brings sweet jasmine scents to the marine freshness that will stand out especially for the sensual and spicy woody depths.

Aqua di Gio has broken the codes of traditional male perfumery to bring a touch of flowery elegance and intense maritime freshness. Like a never-ending sea breeze, Acqua di Gio remains a great classic in men’s perfume and always stands out with its beautiful variations.
