Ferre Acqua Azzurra Cologne by Gianfranco Ferre, Released in April 2008, Ferre Acqua Azzurra was influenced by the mystery and natural beauty of the Capri, an island off of Naples in the Mediterranean Sea.
This cologne captures the island magic with top notes of lavender, bergamot, and orange blossom. Orange blossom is known for being a powerful, natural air freshener, covering other odors with its sweet, subtle citrus aroma. In the heart of this Gianfranco Ferre fragrance is violet leaf, white rose, and ginger. Ginger is a natural aphrodisiac, which spices up the power of this cologne. Finally, the base of Ferre Acqua Azzurra holds sea notes, patchouli, and guaiac wood. Guaiac wood has a slightly smoky and honey-sweet scent, giving a coastal feel to the cologne and is known to reduce stress.
Gianfranco Ferre, the man the company is named after, started as an architect before getting into fashion and fragrances. He designed an awarding-winning clothing collection for Dior. The company released its first fragrance in 1984.
