Acqua Di Gio Profondo, a very acquatic novelty at Giorgio Armani
Since the very first version of Acqua Di Gio, the brand has come a long way. This time, for his new fragrance for 2020, Acqua Di Gio Profondo, the scene takes place across the Atlantic, between the Chilean and Mexican coasts. So, how about taking a plunge, in the company of Jason Morgan, muse of Giorgio Armani?
Acqua Di Gio Profondo, the call of the open sea
Acqua Di Gio Profondo is a fragrance that evokes the grandeur of the seabed, the fresh and captivating air of the sea. It invites you to “dive deep into this intense blue and feel this invigorating freshness as you reconnect with your nature. Interior”. Acqua Di Gio Profondo is a fragrance inspired by an exhilarating universe. With him, nothing is more inspiring than the beauty of nature, which appears here as an inexhaustible source of appeasement. On screen, Acqua Di Gio Profondo is played by Jason Morgan, model muse of Giorgio Armani since 2015. The commercial for Acqua Di Gio Profondo, filmed in black and white, first takes place on the salt lagoons of Atacama in Chile. Then, Jason Morgan dives into the deep water, only to finally emerge on the one of the beaches of the Marieta Islands in Mexico. For a perfect immersion, the advertisement was also filmed at 360 °. Thus, the viewer is free to navigate the screen as he sees fit, to discover the entire immensity of the landscape, as if he were immersed in the gaze of Jason Morgan.
The aquatic intensity of Acqua Di Gio Profondo
Acqua Di Gio Profondo comes in a bottle with a visual very similar to that of its predecessors. Very sober and refined, its bottle comes in a thick glass, which affirms its masculinity with sobriety. Rounded curves testify to a generous and tender man. If the name of this perfume appears in gray writing, the rest is entirely tinged with a deep blue. Giorgio Armani explains the choice of this color in these terms: “Blue is like a dense shadow which expresses sensuality. In its various shades, this liquid color gives an impression of fluidity and refined elegance ”.
To make this perfume, Giorgio Armani called on the perfumer Alberto Morillas. Here, he chose to give us a very fresh first breath of bergamot and green mandarin. Then, these citrus fruits are associated with notes of cascalone and aquazone, two synthetic accords that evoke the open sea through an aquatic and salty association. The heart of Acqua Di Gio Profondo gradually becomes more aromatic, combining rosemary, lavender, cypress and mastic. Little by little, the virility of this perfume explodes, until it gains an amber, woody and mineral base of musk and patchouli.
Acqua Di Gio Profondo made its appearance at the beginning of 2020 and completes the large Acqua Di Gio family of the Armani brand. This time, the man who wears this perfume feels more than ever “attracted by the mysteries of the open sea”. With this fragrance, the Italian brand invites us to “dive deep into this intense blue and feel this invigorating freshness” of the water gliding over the skin. Presented in a new bluish bottle, Acqua Di Gio Profondo is inspired by the immensity of the ocean. So how is the Armani brand taken to give us such a feeling of freshness? Here are all the details of its composition.
Acqua Di Gio Profondo, mixed marine notes citrus fruit
Since the launch of the very first Acqua Di Gio, Armani has taken us along the seas and oceans. However, the first version of this essence took us rather to the side of the Mediterranean. This time, the atmosphere is quite different. It is rather the ocean depths. To give us such a sensation from the first breath of its recipe, Acqua Di Gio Profondo contains a marine accord, very refreshing, slightly salty and infinitely lively. In addition, there are also several citrus fruits. Bergamot invites itself into its top notes. This fruit from the cross between sour orange and lemon blends with the more sparkling and tangy facet of mandarin. The result is an indomitable fragrance, endowed with an exceptional ardor.
The aromatic heart of Acqua Di Gio Profondo
Then, Acqua Di Gio Profondo is enriched with a heart more aromatic and very Mediterranean. As proof, it contains lavender, an ingredient widely used and appreciated by perfumers for their masculine compositions. Indeed, lavender has a little retro and timeless side that unconsciously reminds us of the scent present in barber shops of yesteryear. Cypress, meanwhile, gives this fragrance a slight smell of undergrowth, with a freshness close to that of pine. The lentiscus further reinforces the Mediterranean aspect of this juice. This green and fresh resin is further completed by the addition of rosemary, an ingredient with an equally Provençal connotation.
The mineral and woody base of Acqua Di Gio Profondo d’Armani
Finally, the composition of Acqua Di Gio Profondo ends with an equally elaborate base. In this perfume, the Italian brand Armani has left nothing to chance and many elements intermingle to give birth to a fragrance rich in many flavors. Musk gives off an animal breath and increases the sensuality of the man who carries this essence. It is softened by a resinous and warm touch of amber. To deliver us the vision of raw masculinity, mineral notes are also present. Finally, the virility of this fragrance explodes in a final breath of patchouli, a woody note widely used by perfumers, known to give more persistence to perfumes that contain it.
