This is exclusive to us in the UK and I am thrilled to have found it. Aqua Dos Açores comes from Portugal and is inspired by the Azores, those tiny islands out in the mid Atlantic. I only really know about them because my in-laws cruised there last year and I remember them telling me of a tunnel that links one island with the next which I though most impressive. The owner comes from Florence but fell in love with the islands and bought a property there where she and her husband founded a vineyard, “The Volcano's Cellar', which grows native vines on the unique soil which is covered with the sand and ash expelled by the dos Capelinhos volcano. She and her husband make small productions of exceptional wines with highly defined personalities. If that wasn't enough she has now launched an excellent fragrance brand and I am absolutely smitten by the first two fragrances 'Flores' and 'Azul'.
This couple is also passionate about sustainability and so the fragrances are produced responsibly, protecting the environment and are paraben, silicone, and petroleum free, plus vegan and cruelty-free and the bottle is made from recycled glass and the packaging completely biodegradable and recyclable.
