At its heart, the Mediterranean spirit of the brand Giorgio Armani emerges with a vengeance. The emblematic ingredients of this region of the globe are multiplying, giving this fragrance a solar connotation and a very aromatic breath. Lavandin powerfully evokes the gardens of the south of France. Slightly floral, it pairs with fresher, herbaceous rosemary.
