Acqua di Parma Colonia Leather pays homage to the archetypal Italian craftsmanship of the tanneries of Tuscany. It is here that it begins its olfactory journey – laid back but fresh and bouncing with life – and like the beautiful accessories fashioned – it continues to trot across the globe, where is settles into a sophisticated, aromatic blend, reminiscent of comforting leather furniture in a traditional setting.
Colonia Leather is rich and it’s cultured; opening with vibrant top notes of Sicilian Lemon, raspberry and Brazilian orange, travelling into a heart of red thyme oil, rose, Paraguayan petit grain oil and honeysuckle and resting into a pungent base of birch oil (often used as a tanning agent), cedar, Paraguayan guaiac oil, precious resins and that all important leather.
