To each his is­land

All About Italy (USA) - - Italian Essences | All About Italy -

The brac­ing odor of the sea sinks its roots into the essence of an is­land in a per­ma­nent bond. Ac­qua dell’elba pro­poses a story that cel­e­brates the is­lands of the Tus­can ar­chi­pel­ago, dif­fer­ent and dis­tinct places but hav­ing in com­mon the same en­vi­ron­men­tal, his­tor­i­cal and cul­tural roots: the is­land of Elba, with its se­crets, its trans­paren­cies and its light­ness; Pianosa, with its aro­mas, its warmth and its col­ors; and Mon­te­cristo, with its fas­ci­na­tion, its mystery and it de­tach­ment. And so is born Essence of an Is­land, a nar­ra­tive in three vol­umes cre­ated to en­ter into the spirit of an authen­ti­cally Tus­can crafts­man­ship: Ac­qua, Smer­aldo, Al­trove. The first, Ac­qua, is a scent for both men and women, with preva­lent notes of cit­rus and sea brine un­der­lined by ma­rine al­gae, myr­tle and jas­mine flow­ers, cedar wood, aquatic moss and myr­tle berries. The sec­ond, Smer­aldo, is a feminine per­fume cre­ated with notes of gar­de­nia, mag­no­lia, rock­rose, cedar, man­darin orange, berg­amot and gera­nium sup­ported by bass notes of mas­tic, box­wood, cy­press and ju­niper woods. The last, Al­trove, is a scent for men fea­tur­ing ju­niper, cy­press, iris and jas­mine fol­lowed by rose, leather, tobacco, char­ac­ter­is­tic woods and resins of the Mediter­ranean un­der­brush, and fin­ish­ing with hints of in­cense and arbutus berries. www.ac­quadel­lelba.it
