Acqua Di Parma Colonia Assoluta opens with the brilliant freshness of Calabria bergamot and verbena. In the heart, jasmine, roses and chilli pepper follow on with radiant elegance. The base is entrusted to the noblest of the blond woods, like American cedar, with amber and patchouli. Made in Italy.
Editor's Notes: A respectful re-orchestration of the original Colonia, the flourish of citrus and aromatics remain with a subtle twist. Bitter orange lends a moreish tartness with a unique counterpoint of chilli pepper. Still completely revitalising, Assoluta is the perfect homage.
