Acqua di Parma

 

For Christmas 2018 the brand has introduced their exclusive Home and Travel Collection in collaboration with the acclaimed British Artist Clym Evernden who worked with Fenwicks on their window displays and Stylist magazine.


British Artist Clym collaborates with Acqua di parma for their limited Edition Colonia Collection this Holiday Season.

Clym was commissioned to create Acqua di Parma’s new campaign for the Limited Edition Colonia Artist Collection to capture the essence of the sunny sophistication of Italy and liberated feeling that inspired his little yellow bird illustration. Acqua’s products are mostly unisex so the packaging reflects that and was created in mind to be neutral so the products are accessible for everyone.

New arrivals this season include a deodorant just recently added to the range which includes 32 fragrances in the whole collection so there’s allot of choice to impress even the most discerning gentlemen in your life.

As gift set’s seem to be the most popular choice this festive season I wanted to mention the ones which stood out for me which were the smart gifts as Clym limited edition hand wash and hand lotion, scented candles colonia x Clym and Essenza Intensa Pura x Clym gift sets come with 100 ml fragrance, gel deodorant and shower gel.

Gift packaging Seasons Greeting’s in four different languages Russian, Arabic, and Mandarin Chinese for a personal touch.

 

The Bespoke option gift box is available too where you can choose 3 or 4 products encased with a ribbon without tissue which in my opinion seems smarter in terms of presentation. It does not stop there so in fact it just gets even better where the personalisation of gifts this Christmas is pre-monogrammed on Hat boxes. By observing the packaging it has seasons greeting’s in four different languages Russian, Arabic, and Mandarin Chinese includes limited Edition products and colonia handwash.

So just to recap what’s on offer this Christmas it’s the Christmas gift sets x 4 Colonia, Intensa, Essena and Pura, to smart gift sets / home, Colonia Sandelo and bespoke gifting.

 

 

Acqua di Parma Colonia Classic is the Award Winning Classic Fragrance at the GQ Grooming Awards 2017

During my window shopping trip over the weekend I realised that the Blue Mediternia Collection is only exclusive to House of Fraiser which are citrus, aromatic, sweet scented and fruity distinguished by the names Mirto di Panrea, Aranci Di Capri, and Fico di Amalfi to recreate that feeling of being holiday once you get there.

Citrus aromatic scent is fresh and full of life with bergamot where the woody smells of vetiver, lavender and lemon leave that long lasting impression of sophistication.

Trust me on this one, as you’ll want to try all 6 in the range too from Colonia Assoluta, Colonia Intensa, Colonia Essensa, Colonia Club and Colonia Pura. For those of you interested in the history of the brand Acqua di Parma’s Colonia Classic fragrance is 102 years old which makes it a classic heritage brand to rival other designer fragrances on the market as the Award Winning Classic Fragrance at the GQ Grooming Awards 2017.

Interesting fact – Colonia represents the 1st 100 years of the past and Colonia Pura the 2nd 100 years in the present future. I could go on and on but as the main focus of this review is to tell you all about the Limited Edition Christmas Collection you’ll want to take home and own which you and your loved ones can share together. These days the popularity of catering to meet the demand for gender neutral products is especially common in both men and women’s fragrances which can also be considered unisex which is something you’ll both want to own together because it’s very special. So, I think that’s pretty much Christmas shopping sorted and various item’s I’ll add to my wish list then!

THE ALLURING SCENT OF JO MALONE COLOGNE | HIS & HERS UNISEX FRAGRANCES

A GENDER NEUTRAL FRAGRANCE THAT YOU'LL BOTH ADORE TOGETHER

 

The other day I took my first visit to my local Jo Malone store during a casual stroll in town as you do to seek the perfect gift for some inspiration.  I was astonished to find here a selection for Men’s Grooming, Women’s Beauty to Gender Neutral Products namely fragrances which I was very tempted to try out while inside the store.

Jo Malone London

 

I’ve always heard great things about The Jo Malone Brand as it’s very quintessentially British and one of my favourite luxury products as an alternative to designer fragrances.  We all have our favourite signature fragrances when it comes to scents that feel almost personal to us when we wear them on our skin.

I could spend all afternoon here trying on every invigorating scent that captivates my interest till I find the one for me or someone else as a gift, because we all like to indulge and be spoiled from time to time.

So, if you’re not all familiar with Jo Malone London let me give you a little bit of background into this iconic British Brand and what makes it so unique.

Jo Malone London

 

Jo Malone is a British perfume and scented candle brand founded in 1983. Since 1999 it has been owned by Cosmetics giant Estee Lauder. This luxury brand is synonymous for its high end perfumes. Luxury candles, bath products and room scents.

An interesting fact about the brand is that they appointed English Model and Musician Karen Elson and Model and Actress Poppy Delevingne who have served as spokesperson for the brand.

The fragrance I decided to choose this time round had to be the Honeysuckle & Davana Cologne from the Jo Malone Fragrances which is sweet , not too overpowering and just right with its fresh scented aroma’s can also be Unisex. It’s very versatile and feel I can wear this cologne day in, day out as it’s very alluring when people have commented on the scent’s smell  the first time I wore it.

Incase, you’re wondering to know what’s the main ingredients’ of the fragrance are; it evokes the wildness of honeysuckle, fresh tone of rose together with the aromatic fruity twist of davana and woody with Moss warmed by sunshine which I was instantly obsessed with.

For me, it had to be the hints of liquorice that’s very suttle in sweetness brings to life a fragrance that’s light and ideal for daytime or evening.

Which reminds me that I need to try next the Huntsman  x Jo Malone range which is on my wish list just in time for Christmas.

 

This product retails at £ 47.00 30 ml and £ 94.00 100 ml. To find out more about Jo Malone London visit them online or at their Stores in the UK.
