"Two worlds that converge with the salty aromas trapped by the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the terrestrial breeze that caresses its vegetation!"
There are many things made for surfers. Surfboards, wetsuits, wax, traction pads, surfboard travel bags, etc. There are many more things not made for surfers, though, or at least not explicitly. Paper towels, frying pans, Persian rugs, wooden fruit bowls, etc. Well, today is a fine day because perfume can be crossed off the second list and added to the first.
That’s right, your Christmas shopping just got a whole lot easier because two enterprising Spanish gentleman have just created the world’s first unisex perfume specifically inspired by surfing/surfers and let’s learn about it.
Idil Bazán and Marc Conca, founders of Barcelona’s Surfcity Festival, decided to materialize their passion for the sea in a new fragrance aimed at conveying the sensations experienced when riding the waves.
23NAO (North Atlantic Ocean) is the first product released under the Agua de Surf umbrella. The duo spent three years developing the brand and the debut fragrance.
23NAO is the first of a unique collection inspired by the most representative oceanic regions of the surfing world.
“It is a unisex perfume that evokes the irrational immensity of the seas reaching out to the coasts incessantly. Two worlds that converge with the salty aromas trapped by the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the terrestrial breeze that caresses its vegetation,” underline Bazán and Conca.
“23NAO is an ode to the sea, a perfume born out of experiences lived around the world in search of waves.”
Boom. Stocking Stuffer City but how does it smell?
The new surf-inspired perfume was created using natural molecular ingredients from the North Atlantic Ocean, and curated by the prestigious perfumer Ramón Monegal including the olfactory notes of:
Oceanic gray amber
Cypriol with salvia sclarea
Oh. I like but I was thinking it should have olfactory notes of:
Rusty fin keys
Now that we’re here, Josh Kerr, Bede, Parko and Mick Fanning really should have launched a perfume instead of a beer. Don’t you agree?
