Acqua Di Gio Absolu by Giorgio Armani, a subtle blend of wood and water
Travel is often an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Moreover, many perfumers claim to go to the four corners of the globe to find rare and intoxicating scents serving as the basis for their future perfumes. However, it is in the heart of a place he knows well that Giorgio Armani imagined Acqua Di Gio . Since 1996, this fragrance has delighted men and its freshness invades their daily lives again and again. Today, Giorgio Armani has decided to offer us a new vision of his paradise island. This is how Acqua Di Gio Absolu was born, a more woody but still aquatic essence.
Acqua Di Gio Absolu, a fragrance between land and sea
Acqua Di Gio Absolu is a juice that has preserved the soul of its predecessors. In other words, it is always a fragrance that is at the same time fresh, transparent and sparkling. It displays exceptional purity and takes off on a partition of citrus fruits and marine notes. The freshness culminates in its top notes and it feels almost rocked by the sea spray. Fruits also tickle its composition, as if to accentuate the liveliness of the man Giorgio Armani and to deposit a light touch of sweetness. However, the real novelty of Acqua Di Gio Absolu is its explosion of woody flavors. This fragrance displays a hitherto unexplored virility. Very concentrated in wood, its wake is dominated by the structured and deep presence of patchouli. Since then,Acqua Di Gio Absolu gives us the image of a Mediterranean landscape , both rocked by the waves, but whose atmosphere remains charged with a pine flavor.
Giorgio Armani’s Mediterranean inspiration
As you will have understood, it is at the heart of his origins that Giorgio Armani sought inspiration to make this essence symbolizing “the union of water and wood”. For a long time now, Giorgio Armani has enjoyed going to the island of Pantelleria to recharge his batteries between two creations. This 83 km² piece of land is located in a large arm of the sea that separates Sicily from Tunisia. A popular tourist spot, the island of Pantelleria is renowned for its geysers, thermal waters, its limestone landscape and the beauty of its seabed. Thus, it makes the happiness of men both on land and in water. However, this is precisely what is found in the Acqua Di Gio Absolu perfume.
When wood is invited on the bottle of Acqua Di Gio Absolu
On the bottle side, Acqua Di Gio Absolu does not shy away from its belonging to this great collection by Giorgio Armani. It takes the look of its predecessors and adopts the same sober, slender silhouette with slightly rounded angles. With him, everything is a question of sobriety and refinement. However, Acqua Di Gio Absolu offers itself a little eccentricity. He traded his transparency of yesteryear for the color of a warmer juice. Its amber hue warms the whole of this container. Finally, its metal cabochon is now covered with a wooden texture that perfectly echoes the fragrance it contains.
