Acqua Di Parma


Cologne

The aromatherapy line, Blu Mediterraneo, was inspired by the Italian landscape and includes bath oils and perfumes. Like the original perfume, this line is unisex, so the products are suitable gifts for men and women.

In 2001 the company was sold to the extremely large high-end brand company, LMVH, but the perfumes are still hand-distilled in Italy.

Acqua di Parma Iris Nobile Eau de Parfum

A new olfactory interpretation of the iris flower, Acqua Di Parma Iris Nobile strikes the perfect balance between the elegance of a classic floral bouquet and modern, refined notes like mandarin from Sicily, vanilla from Madagascar, cedar flower, and ambrette crystals.

Iris Nobile is now available in an Eau de Parfum spray, an intoxicating concentrated version for a deep, long-lasting scent.




Acqua di Parma Colonia Acqua di Parma for women and men

Acqua Di Parma Colonia was presented as a citrus fragrance. It was composed of lavender, rosemary, Sicilian citrus, Bulgarian rose, jasmine, amber and light musk.

The bottle is simple but elegant, charming in the Italian way. It comes as 180ml bath oil and Eau de Parfum.

There is another version of this fragrance, the limited edition for 2007, named Colonia Edizione Murano. The bottle is made of Murano glass, beautiful and elegant, designed by Giorgio Vigna.

Cologne Oil Soap

Last year Acqua di Parma introduced its first female fragrance, Iris Nobile, which was created by the company's 'nose', Paola Paganini. Inspired by the beautiful iris garden in Florence where growers compete for various prizes, she decided to base the perfume on this expensive and delicate flower which is the emblem of Florence. She used the common variety, the blue pallida, and the oil from the rhizomes or thickened stems. These are gathered, dried and distilled over three years.
