Acqua Di Parma Colonia Assoluta Cologne by Acqua Di Parma, First release in 2003, Acqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta is a radiant aromatic citrus fragrance that is at once exuberant and utterly refined, designed to be worn by men or women.
The top notes are a brisk, invigorating blend of cleansing lemon verbena, elegantly bitter and lightly sour bergamot and a deliciously oscillating pairing of sweet and bitter orange, honeyed yet tart. The heart notes are a kaleidoscopic fusion of complementary accords, deliciously balanced between creamy yellow and white florals, spice and wood. Narcotic jasmine, rose-tinged pink pepper and rich banana-toned ylang-ylang mingle with pimento, aromatic cardamom and the bitter chocolate and smoke facets of vetiver. The dry down is a satiating synthesis of earthy patchouli, cedarwood and musk, wreathed in the woody, velvety tones of resin and oakmoss.
Acqua di Parma is an Italian perfume house first established in 1916. House fragrances were made in collaboration with Alberto Morillas, Melanie Carestia, Francoise Caron, Bertrand Duchaufour, Francis Kurkdjian, Antoine Maisondieu, Francois Demachy and Jean-Claude Ellena.
