AGUA DE SURF IN B-GUIDED BARCELONA

AGUA DE SURF. 23NAO, the name of this unisex eau de parfum, the first of the five Agua de Surf scents that will eventually be launched, whose nomenclature refers to the term given by the International Hydrographic Organization in 1953 to map the seas and oceans. 23 then corresponds to the region defined by the waters around the entire north Atlantic area. The result of almost three years research, it contains (in a bottle with a wave-like hand-made stopper) natural ozonic molecules selected by renowned nez Ramon Monegal. Its creators, Idil Bazan and Marc Conca, founders of the Surfcity Festival, describe the fragrance as “currents of plankton clashing violently against majestic statues carved in cedar wood”. An epic encounter, but at the same time balanced, between the sea and land. From the freshness of bergamot to the grandeur of ambergris. Agua de Surf, which set out on its particular romance with the sea in 2010 channels the energy of the great blue turning it into sensory creations, and donates 1% of profits to CRAM, the foundation for the Conservation and Recovery of Marine Animals.
