Ladies and gents, please meet Aqua di Tao: aromatherapy-rooted, finely crafted, most exciting, vegan, and organic unisex flagrances.
I have never heard of this brand before.
But browsing natural perfumes in one of my fave natural online boutiques, I stumbled upon three small (10ml) spray bottles with huge ökotest “grade A” stickers on their white caps 😉 – Aqua di Tao, nature code n°1, n°2 and unsurprisingly n°3; three unisex fragrances, vegan, sustainable, and certified organic with both NaTrue and BDIH. Upon reading the scent descriptions, I decided to try n°3, but it was sold out at that moment, and so I settled for n°2.Aqua di Tao is a brand by Taoasis, a German company specialising in aromatherapy. Aqua di Tao’s website is minimalistic and German-only, but if you want to visit, this way please 😉
Meet Number Two
A closer look at the label: Alcohol BIO denat., Citrus aurantium dulcis flower distillate BIO, Fragrance (100% pure essential oils), Limonene*, Benzylsalicylate*, Benzylalkohol*, Benzylbenzoate*, Citral*, Citronellol*, Eugenol*, Farnesol*, Geraniol*, Linalool* (*parts of essential oils) 10ml – approx. €7.50, 50ml approx. €27.
The fragrance is powdery and fresh, soothing and lush, and has a good wear. Sandal wood and rose provide warmth, jasmine caters for carnal, adult notes, green mandarine and clementine peel infuse a vivid, sparkling zest.
As it is usual with fragrance, opinions differ strongly here. I think that this sweet, seductive fragrance is a keeper; Mr S.O. thinks it’s a fragrance for “the aunt on the shelf”. Go figure!
