Far from my second country, Italy, my thoughts are flying to one of my favorite places in the world I had the opportunity to visit early in my life…
More than 5 years ago I had the opportunity to spend my vacation on one of my favorite places in this world: Elba Island in Italy.
Almost 3,000 miles away at east from here, aside the Tuscan archipelago, you can find this amazing Island. Most of the Tuscans call it “the Italian Hawaii”.
Cheaper than Hawaii, you can step on one of the most magical places on Earth. This island is that place where after 1 minute you fall in love (like I did) with it. A place you might keep in the surface of your beautiful memories. That place where you truly forget about your daily issues. An angle of paradise that even your worst day cannot delete from your brain.
When I was a young man, I used to daydream of the moment when I will step on a paradisiac soil. I was the prey of many magazines and TV commercials that build your head with all these unattainable goals.
Isola d’Elba changed completely my way to see the world.
How? I am not trying to sell you something and I might sound like a simple Simon guy. That’s what I was thinking as well. After I left the ferryboat, I finally realized what the brochures were talking about, regard to Elba Island.
Isola d’Elba is that piece of paradise that doesn’t need a promo to become well-known in the whole world. Isola d’Elba wins your heart and takes a deep spot in it. You cannot stop thinking of it.
After visiting many well-published places on the earth, it is hard for me to express all of them as places where a piece of my heart is left. Elba Island’s smell wins your olfaction memories. Elban people win your Friendship. Elba’s kitchen miracle’s makes you become a culinary expert for your whole life.
I will always keep this special place in my heart. It reminds me of what it means to be carefree. Every time I want to touch the Island again, I go to my secret bottle of Acqua dell’Elba Eau de Parfum . As the Island keeps me far from sad thoughts, it’s special cologne reminds me of the happiness; reminds me of the woman I love and how I met her. I indirectly associate the cologne’s fragrance to her personality.
Indirectly in the late 90’s, Fabio, Chiara and Marco, made their dream come true:
Give the island a smell and an identity within the world by creating the Acqua Dell’Elba perfume. They probably will never know about something important: Their perfume is reflecting the personality of somebody’s lover.
As I respect and appreciate the people of Elba, I have a huge estimation of what a familiar small company was able to create among huge multi-national corporation competitors. I estimate how they mixed the passion and wisdom to Island high quality materials, transforming a small artisan workshop in a unique product: Acqua Dell’Elba.
Indirectly I’m connected with this entity and I would like to thank them for impacting my life!
