Time for another confession! During my teenage years, I had a bit of obsession for men’s colognes. Instead of buying myself a perfume, I’d sneak into my dad’s dresser and use up his bottle of Hugo Boss. And when he would wonder where his cologne had disappeared, I’d cheekily answer, “Cologne is made of alcohol – it probably evaporated!”
Thankfully I eventually discovered the lovely range of women’s perfumes as I grew up. However the men in my life will tell you that my favorite gift item is colognes – so that I can be surrounded by the scents I like!
So when the Al Tayer group sent me an invite for the launch of the latest men’s cologne from Salvatorre Ferragamo, Acqua Essenziale, I booked the event in my diary. After all, I’m a fan of their women’s perfume Signorina, which also launched in Dubai last year.
With the fitting location of Meydan Beach as the backdrop, the blue bottle of Acqua Essenziale was launched in Dubai by Luciano Bertinelli, CEO of Ferragamo Parfums. The scent is packaged in an elegant but simple bottle that makes it easy to travel with.
The Acqua Essenziale Eau de Toilette is a light and crispy scent with citrus notes that would work great in Dubai’s heavy summer, without being overpowering.
