Acqua Di Gio Special Bend by Armani, a fragrance made of shadow and light
Acqua Di Gio is a great classic of men’s perfumery which was made by the Armani house in 1996. Many say that he is a “seducer with oceanic accents”. These sunny citrus fruits associated with saltier marine notes have been the hallmark of its charm for more than 10 years now. As if to celebrate this anniversary, Armani has therefore decided to develop a brand new version. Focus on the new Acqua Di Gio Special Bend, a marine fragrance with the most aromatic facet ever.
The marine and aromatic breath of Acqua Di Gio Special Bend
The Acqua Di Gio d’Armani scented saga is inspired by a place where designer Giorgio Armani likes to spend his holidays: the island of Pantelleria. Lost in the Mediterranean, this island is his source of inspiration. It is the creative source of a fragrance that is at once fresh, sunny and wildly maritime. Since its launch in 1996, Acqua Di Gio has made us dream of escape, water and freedom. Its smell combines sweet and salty, sweetness and bitterness. The result is a scent similar to the sweetness of the sun on male skin.
This time, however, Acqua Di Gio Special Bend takes on a more aromatic part than ever. Its breath takes on a particularly fresh and typically Italian citrus fruit: bergamot. This fruit is associated with a marine accord before being relayed by the peppery elegance of geranium. Sage and rosemary reinforce the aromatic part of this fragrance while plunging us into the heart of the Mediterranean universe. Finally, Acqua Di Gio Special Bend ends with more depth. The patchouli comes to structure the whole of this juice while the incense adds a part of mystery to it.
The return of the iconic Acqua Di Gio d’Armani bottle
On the bottle side, Acqua Di Gio Special Bend remains faithful to the universe of the Armani house . Its container perfectly respects the aesthetic and chromatic codes of the brand. Thus, its matte black and opaque color is similar to a perfectly cut suit jacket. Acqua Di Gio Special Bend is a sober fragrance with rounded angles that make it easier to grip. It is a blend of elegance and power. Its refinement is underlined by the presence of numerous golden details. This metallic touch reinforces the flashy side of this perfume, without ever going overboard, and brilliantly underlines its solar side.
Jason Morgan, already cult muse of Acqua Di Gio
Finally, in terms of muse, the Armani brand seems to swear by Jason Morgan. This handsome American model of 1m83 has been the ambassador of this cool summer water since 2012. He succeeded Simon Nessman and never ceases to bewitch us with his bluish gaze as magnetic as the sea horizon that Armani tells us about.
