Under The Pole?
A series of exploratory expeditions dedicated to underwater environments, particularly at the poles: innovative and daring, scientific and educational, they are inspired by the great pioneers of the last century. Discovering more and learning how to preserve the oceans is one of the great challenges of this century.
Under The Pole conducts scientific and experimental programs in extreme environments, and invents the future of diving. By creating unique images, the team allows the general public to discover the breathtaking beauty and fascinating richness of the underwater world.
Under The Pole is a crazy challenge and an extraordinary quest for sensations. It is a fascinating human adventure undertaken by the family that founded Under The Pole: Ghislain Bardout (energy engineer, entrepreneur and polar diving specialist) and Emmanuelle Périé-Bardout (skipper and diver).
Driven by the same passion, they already have two major polar expeditions behind them and are getting ready – with their two sons: Robin (aged 4), Tom (the baby) and their dog Kayak – for their third expedition.
They will set off in May 2017.
Under The Pole Expedition III
Under The Pole
From May 2017 to the summer of 2021, Under The Pole will set off on a third unique adventure, dedicated to exploring the world’s oceans. For three years, the team of divers, sailors and scientists will travel the world on the “WHY”, a polar schooner, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, via the Pacific and the Atlantic. What is the objective of the Under The Pole III expedition? To explore the seabed in a pioneering spirit, combining documentary work and scientific study, conducting ultra-long and deep dives, in keeping with its new mission to allow humans to stay underwater for prolonged periods of time. Discovering the hidden life of the oceans and observing rare scenes of animal life are a bonus! Spectacular images are guaranteed.

12 UTP & Azzaro
Under The Pole
With the flamboyance of its founding values, Azzaro is now more than ever “the brand that celebrates life”, allowing both men and women to play with their destiny, to take a chance on their luck and go after their dreams. With this new energy, initiatives and launches from the brand issue an invitation to everyone to live their life more intensely... #TimeToShine!
This philosophy is illustrated perfectly by the four-year partnership linking Azzaro fragrances and Under The Pole, who are about to undertake their third expedition around the world: a fascinating journey that will take the crew from the icy Arctic ocean to the Antarctic, via the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Sea preparations begin in July 2016, departure is scheduled for May 2017 and return during summer 2021.
The sea is the vital, euphoric and exhilarating element that bears witness to this wonderful partnership, synonymous with freedom and escape for both Under The Pole and Azzaro. This fusion with the sea – the Mediterranean in particular – is profoundly anchored in Azzaro's heritage: its light, intense colours, scents and the feeling of well-being when you come into contact with it.
Under The Pole is also an extraordinary human adventure that shares values important to Azzaro: freedom, self-improvement, courage, passion and respect for nature. Because “exploring the submarine world and its diversity in order to better preserve it” is also one of the priorities of Under The Pole: beyond its research and development missions, the team aims to provide evidence of climate change and its challenges, to raise awareness, particularly among younger generations, of ways to stop it.
