Acqua di Sardegna is an intensely fresh line, full of youthful exuberance and energy. Three unique Eau de Parfum fragrances: for men, women and unisex.
Acqua di Sardegna’s story begins with a seafaring man, Mauro Aprea. Mauro discovered Sardinia little by little, a precious pearl in the heart of the Mediterranean.
One day Mauro realized he had fallen in love with this land. The traditions, the vivid colors, the fairy tales, the mesmerizing music, and the ancient stone towers and small bronze statues that defined Sardinia’s history… they all called out to him and drew him closer. Mauro decided to change his life and come to live here, in Alghero, a small seafront town made of limestone and coral.
People in love often have an intense need to express what they are feeling. Some use words, others communicate through music or pictures. Mauro chose to portray his joy with perfume.
Sardinia’s voice carries by way of her perfumes; she beckons to us with a fragrance of crashing waves, sun-drenched rock, aromatic herbs, and small, pungent wildflowers.
She offers her tales through the aromas of fertile leaves on the paths, the narrow stone streets, the dry yellow fields that quiver in the sultry heat, and the fresh, moist air that arises after the first September rain.
To describe all this, Mauro began with one perfume: Acqua di Sardegna. He wanted it to be a gift, a memory to be preserved. With the creation of each new fragrance destined to embody one of the island’s secrets, there is always another fascinating story waiting to be told.
These magnificent essences are all different, but joined together by an imperceptible thread. The island will become one with the wearer, instantly conjuring up a pastel beach, a shimmer on turquoise water, or a breezy, sun-kissed jetty.
Fragrances born out of a love for Sardinia and its graceful, flowing sea. They call to mind the distinctive aromas and enveloping charms of this island, evoking sweet Summers, delicate hints of countryside flowers and sparkling citrus fruits, and the aromatic wood and smoky leather of traditional settings and treasured objects. This collection of aquatic, fruity and floral fragrances are infused with a vibrant, Mediterranean personality… encompassing at once the golden warmth of the sun and the exhilarating freshness of the waves.
The bottles of Acqua di Sardegna are inspired by marine forms: the waves, the rocky etched cliffs, and the wind. The egg-shaped asymmetric cap is like a small pebble rounded by the undertow, one of the sea’s perfect little sculptures, rolling languidly and adding their sound to that of the breakers.
Each element of these perfume creations, from the packaging design to the most persistent fragrance notes, exudes the feel and emotion of Sardinia… its compelling character, and the thousand and one details that make the island unique.
