An Olfactory Travel Diary
That of Aqua dos Açores is the story of a bond between a Florentine couple and the Azores, born by chance in 2008 when this unique place captured Cinzia Caiazzo’s attention and that of her husband, who established here their volcano’s cellar.
The couple live on the Island of Faial, near the dos Capelinhos volcano formed in 1957 following an eruption started in the sea a mile from the coast. The sand and ashes expelled from the volcano for over a year submerged the surrounding land, creating an unparalleled terroir in the following decades. Aqua dos Açores expresses love for extreme nature and its own relationship with man.
The collection was born as an olfactory travel diary. A sensorial tale of one of the most beautiful places in the world, where history, nature, colours and scents merge into an indissoluble whole.
Nature. Ocean. Sustainability.
Its fragrances are characterized by the high concentration of natural raw materials and essential oils sourced from plants growing in the archipelago combining the ancient tradition of Italian artisan perfumery with the technical innovations in both research and development of perfumes with these pure ingredients. Furthermore, a cross-reference sees the formulas born in Florence, exclusively developed for the brand.
The fragrances are produced responsibly protecting the environment and are paraben, silicone, and petroleum free, plus vegan and cruelty-free.
The concept of use and reuse is a priority for the brand and it includes recyclable glass and completely biodegradable and recyclable packaging, FSC certified from sustainable sources.
