Eau so bracing: a new Acqua di Parma thoroughbred joins the men’s line-up

One for lazybones: a single ‘whoosh’ of this will awaken you faster than a double espresso.

With its cool, crisp green breeziness – including lots of galbanum and touches of mint – it’s a fabulous jolt to the senses. As you might expect from Acqua di ParmaColonia Club opens with their signature citrus notes of bergamot, lemon, mandarin and petitgrain. It’s that mint which adds zing, though, paired perfectly with neroli and galbanum (quite the greenest note at a perfumer’s fingertips).

Dry, woodsy Haitian vetiver, smouldering musk and a rich ambergris accord make for a very sophisticated finale with plenty of intrigue. We’d definitely wear it ourselves – it’s highly ‘shareable’. But something we’d also be happy to smell on any male who cantered into sight, actually.

Meanwhile, do enjoy a couple of our Instagram photos from yesterday’s launch event at The Beaumont Hotel, below.
