Acqua di Parma Note di Colonia IV

Acqua di Parma Note di Colonia IV

Acqua di Parma launches a new perfume for both men and women Note di Colonia IV. After Note di Colonia I, II, and III, the new perfume, Acqua di Parma Note di Colonia IV is described as an oriental/floral fragrance with a sensual, elegant and classic aroma.

Acqua di Parma pays homage to ‘Manon Lescaut’ by Giacomo Puccini with a fragrance that celebrates the strength of love and passion. Like a stolen glance that stirs the emotions, the sparkling and bright notes of green mandarin and bergamot are the spark that ignite this elegant bouquet with energy and enthusiasm.

The harmony continues to intoxicate through the deep and intense heart of the sensual floral notes of orange blossom, pampered by the honeyed notes of the Turkish Rose. Love is firmly sealed in mystery by an enveloping base composed of Opoponax, Patchouli and Cistus Labdanum.

Acqua di Parma Note di Colonia IV Bottle

Note di Colonia goes back to Acqua di Parma’s origins, even in its choice of the original Colonia bottle, offering a lavish and spectacular rendering of it which is rare and precious. The stopper, bottle and presentation box are the flawless result of the most genuine Italian craftsmanship. A Collection which plays with different elements, as in a musical score, to create perfect harmony overall. Velvet, satin, crystal. Noble materials chosen with great care and considerable attention to detail for the packaging as precious as a treasure chest and for the bottle.

Every detail, every element of workmanship, every finishing touch is made by hand through patient and precise actions. The allure of the fragrances and their perfect blending find their natural stage in the refinement of the packaging.

Acqua di Parma Note di Colonia IV is available in 150 ml Eau de Cologne.

Tom Ford crafts eponymous, luxurious and exquisite perfumes with high-end quality ingredients. After Tobacco Oud (2013) Tom Ford Tobacco Oud Intense shows up this autumn, as a new woody/spicy perfume for both men and women.

The new perfume is part of brands luxurious Private Blend perfume Collection and gets a deep and rich composition of perfectly balanced Arabic Doha Tobacco and Oud. As we all know, oud is a rare and expensive ingredient used in perfumes to underline its refinement and its delicate nature. For me, Tom Ford perfumes worth their money as they leave behind truly classic and elegant aromas.

Its for anyone seeking for a very special and beautiful fragrance, but doesn’t want to smell like its neighbour, then Tobacco Oud Intense is the right choice. Dare to always impress and delight with an exquisite smell.

Lui, Guerlain’s new scent feminine and masculine at once

Guerlain-Liu1

Guerlain LUI. A famous fragrance in perfume history. Because of the unique scent, and because of the unique bottle.

Now Maison Guerlain is launching a new perfume version of LUI, which will satisfy both men and women. From French language, LUI means she/his.

Feminine. Masculine. Why choose? LUI is a perfume that loves to stir up trouble. Neither totally feminine nor truly masculine, it is both at once. Guerlain is inspired by a generation that is free from the norms of the genre, and has the idea of a decidedly universal perfume.

Guerlain LUI is announced as a floral, woody and spicy scent. The creation is signed by the perfume duo of Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk. The two of them wanted to surprise with an unexpected scent that mixes genres and creates a new one; LUI strives to be ambivalent and complex, but unique and singular in its “alchemy” that is revealed on the skin.

Top notes: pear, clove
Heart: benzoin, carnation
Base: leather, vanilla, musk, smoke

The composition focuses on an accord of benzoin, in its complexity and its different facets. It opens with pear, cloves along with benzoin and spicy carnation notes. The base calms on a woody layer made of leather, vanilla, musk and smokey leather.

 

LUI - Guerlain's New Scent Feminine And Masculine At Once

 

The beautiful Art Deco bottle is elegant, black and lacquered, reminiscent of a Chinese tea box from the 18th century. It relies on the aesthetics of the Guerlain legacy and lends the style and anagram of the name of the floral-aldehyde fragrance LUI, which was created by Jacques Guerlain in 1929.

Guerlain LUI is available as 50ml Eau de Parfum.
