In Missoni’s new commercial for Wave, a new eau de toilette for men, Mickael celebrates the seductive and unconventional elegance of the Missoni man. The famous Italian fashion and design company, which is still owned by the Missoni family, was founded in 1953. It is best known for its colourful zigzag knitwear.

Wave is a citrus, aquatic, aromatic and woody fragrance. Its freshness is inspired by the waters of the Mediterranean. Missoni describes it as “a masculine concept that is reminiscent of a sea breeze, comprised of crystalline colours, delicate scents and a magical atmosphere. A sparkling fragrance, created for the young man with solid roots, who is adventurous, virile, highly principled and charismatic”.
