Acqua di Parma‘s Blu Mediterraneo collection is nothing if not transportive. The fragrances take you to smell the cedrat in Taomino, the bergamot of Calabria, the figs of the Amalfi coast and this time they whisk you away to Tuscany to mingle amongst the cypress trees.
The latest to the collection – Cipresso di Toscana – is a green fougère scent, and an ode to those tall iconic trees that line the Italian landscapes – and you can enjoy the worldwide exclusive at Selfridges this weekend and you’ll get the chance to have your cap hand-decorated by an artist in store, pick up a colourful sleeve for your bottle – and there are even delightful minis on offer as a gift-with-purchase.
It blends sweet oranges, with a spicy star anise accord and elemi – a resin with lemony, peppery facets. The heart of uplifting lavender and clary sage echoes the fresh breeze of the Tuscan coast, whilst petitgrain adds a bitter greenness. Cypress is fused with pine needles, in the base, for a scent that is perfect for the summer; fresh, green and invigorating.
So if you fancy being whisked away to Tuscany this weekend, we suggest you pop in store for the full Cipresso di Toscana experience – and pick up some Acqua di Parma free postcards while you’re there. (We’d love you to send one to us, from your travels!)
Personalisation services are available Friday 15th June from 3pm – 8pm and Saturday 16th June from 1pm – 6pm.
