Colonia

Colonia

Eau de Cologne
It all started with this fragrance, created in 1916 in a small perfumer’s laboratory in the heart of Parma. Master perfumers devised an unusually fresh and light composition compared to the perfumes of the day: Acqua di Parma Colonia, the first true Italian eau de cologne.
Its refined alchemy, which was immediately successful and became an evergreen classic, still offers sensations of incomparable freshness and radiance. Pure joie de vivre released by the sunny essences of the finest Sicilian citrus fruits and a harmonious blend of lavender, rosemary, verbena and damask rose. This is followed by warm woody notes like vetiver, sandal and patchouli. Inimitable accords capable of seduction, oblivious to time and fashion. The Colonia formula has remained unchanged for nearly a hundred years. The elegant Art Deco bottle, with its distinct bakelite stopper has been an undisputed style icon since 1930. The exquisite craftsmanship is reflected in every detail of the packaging, made entirely by hand and characterised by the arms of the duchy of Parma and the yellow that has graced the city’s elegant buildings for decades. A timeless classic.

The Line

INSPIRATION – TIMELESS ELEGANCE

The Colonia legend is closely tied to the world of Italian tailors, the home of impeccable elegance, where class is expressed in prestige fabrics, perfect cuts, the sophisticated balance of muted colours and attention to detail. Down to the final and indispensable touch of class: a spray of Colonia before handing over the made to measure suit. A sensory hallmark of a style of dressing that is also a lifestyle.
Colonia is the original fragrance that embodies classic elegance and long tradition. This was followed by Colonia Assoluta, a sensory portrait of an eclectic man (creative and curious, innately elegant), an original expression of modernity; Colonia Intensa, for intense, multi-faceted personalities, resolute and brilliant, of undisputed charisma; Colonia Essenza, the purest expression of Colonia for a contemporary gentleman; and Colonia Intensa Oud, the latest sophisticated interpretation combining the freshness of Colonia with the Middle Eastern tradition.
