Acqua Di Parma Colonia Ambra
Acqua di Parma’s has updated its iconic Colonia line of men’s perfumes with the Colonia Ambra.
The new cologne features a number of various scents, one of which is ambergris. An extremely rare ingredient and an essential component of the most exquisite fragrances, ambergris is characterised by peculiar marine notes, originating from the action of the ocean and of the wind, together lulling it for many years before it is deposited on remote beaches.
Colonia Ambra is a new interpretation of this essence, combined with the typical fresh citrus notes of Colonia. The company describes it as a fragrance that tells a fascinating story with a modern sensory approach, a unique trademark of style for a man who is passionate about travel and the exploration of culture, tied to the past yet projected into modern times.
The top promptly unveils the unique freshness of Colonia deriving from a well-bal- anced combination of orange oil, bergamot, and petit grain. There follows a warm heart of notes that come from remote lands. The woody accents of nagarmotha and cedar wood are blended with the delicate, yet vibrant notes of rosewood.
The heart closes on the earthy and musky notes of patchouli that perfectly announce the main ingredient of the fragrance—ambergris. Here it develops into a surprising base, a true first, with the introduction of ambergris tincture, a rare ingredient with intense sensual notes, enhanced by sandalwood and warmed up by soft vanilla accents.
