Pick of the Week: Acqua di Parma Colonia Bath Gel

January 11, 2013

Since Diego della Valle purchased Acqua di Parma (and Schiaparelli!) for his luxury brand Tod’s Group, the line has expanded. The world-famous Acqua di Parma Nobile scent, first created by master Italian perfumers in 1916, is now available in a creamy, vitamin-enriched bath gel. As much as I love this timeless, sophisticated jasmine scent with mandarin orange and woodsy notes, as much as I am veramente pazzo about Nobile’s sunny Italian garden sensuality, it’s the iconic bottle that seals the deal. Elegant and streamlined (it was designed in 1930) the Acqua di Parma tapered cylinder, immediately recognizable, is the quickest way to upgrade your bathroom. It’s about as simply beautiful as packaging gets. –Patricia Volk
