Just like a beautiful song, the best fragrances create a perfect symphony between notes. Capturing the drama of an Italian aria, Acqua di Parma’s new scent, Note di Colonia V is a sensuous celebration of love.
Inspired by ‘La Donna è Mobile’ from the ‘Rigoletto’ by Giuseppe Verdi, and available exclusively at Harrods, the fragrance is the latest cologne in the Note di Colonia Collection. Each of the five evocative scents has been based on a different operatic composition and is designed to work in harmony.
In true Acqua di Parma style, there’s plenty of Italian savoir-faire. A signature citrus pairing of lemon and bergamot is accented with punchy pink pepper mid-notes, leading into a playful dance of spiced ginger and juniper. The crescendo does not disappoint – bringing forth the glorious woody notes and warmth of sandalwood and cedar.
Like a soaring soprano under the stars in Calabria – this is a slice of la dolce vita in a bottle.
