You may well suppose Adam Driver is fatigued from functioning by way of your mind all day, but it is actually simply because he is continue to sprinting right after horses—and treading water—in Burberry’s most recent eau d’equestrian fantasy.
Almost particularly a yr considering that Driver starred in an right away viral advertisement campaign for Burberry chief innovative officer Riccardo Tisci’s inaugural fragrance for the model, which provided a commercial in which gentleman and horse pondered their existence amidst land and sea, the actor returns to the shoreline for an additional 30-next location to market the new Burberry Hero Eau de Parfum.
In the advert, a shirtless Driver at the time all over again finds himself, for each a press release, “in the awe-inspiring elegance of the purely natural globe, depicting what masculinity indicates currently by embracing liberty of expression and the natural beauty of contradictions—how energy can be refined, and thoughts can empower.” He swims in blue waters to FKA Twigs singing the line “I quench that thirst.” (That music, “Two Weeks,” also soundtracked final year’s professional Twigs is a fellow ambassador for the British model.) Driver’s voice also delivers some narration: “It normally takes courage to embrace your extraordinary.”
The fragrance, heat and woody, requires inspiration from perfumer Aurélien Guichard’s memory of the Landes forest in southwestern France: “The scent of the pine needles melted with a trail of heat sand and sea-spray was the aroma I preferred to recreate,” Guichard stated in a press release. “For me, the sensual and crystalised resins bundled in the fragrance depict the power of reconnecting with your organic instinct.’” And who has extra pure instinct than Adam Driver, the initial guy?
