Our Editor has been sampling the lip balm, hand cream and the Chinotto di Liguria fragrance and she is a fan! It’s staying put on the top shelf of her beauty cabinet…
‘I think it is the perfect fragrance for a honeymoon or holiday, and not just because of the fragrance which instantly transports you to fairer weather and a feeling of holiday nostalgia, but also because it’s a unisex fragrance meaning its the perfect scent for any kind of couple to take away. Just one fragrance bottle to pack for both, and one which will help with the transition of the working mindset to one of holiday fun and relaxation. Even the packaging has a nautical summertime look and feel. I’m also a believer in using different scents for different occasions and experiences, so this one will be used for weekends away or longer adventures and when I’m back at work and feeling the holiday blues I will no doubt indulge in the odd spray to transport myself back to the memories’
Beautiful words and imagery from Acqua Di Parma below…
The new Chinotto di Liguria fragrance is the breath of Ligurian nature, which grows luxuriantly on rocks that tumble steeply down into the sea. The top notes of the fragrance are like a breeze: a charge of pure energy enhanced by the bittersweet notes of the chinotto fruit and the sparkling crispness of mandarin. At its heart, jasmine and geranium bloom with the dynamic and refreshing notes of cardamom and rosemary. It is rounded off with the peace and tranquillity afforded by the base notes of musk and patchouli. A fragrance reminiscent of an early morning stroll along the rocky coastlines of western Liguria.
The fragrances of Blu Mediterraneo each share the unmistakable spirit of the Mediterranean. Igniting your senses to share in nature and with the people who bring colour to your life – which create the special allure of this magical Italian region. Quite simply: fragrances that lighten your life as they fill the air with wonder.
It’s the extremely rare chinotto fruit that makes the new Blu Mediterraneo fragrance: Chinotto di Liguria weaves its own magic. Even the briefest encounter with its enticing bittersweet notes whisks you lightly away to sunlight trickling of waves and a breeze suggestive of wonder and nature. As rare as breathing in Eden, the chinotto is both a symbol of Liguria’s crafting traditions.
The shiny blue glass bottle containing Chinotto di Liguria mirrors the iconic Art Deco lines of the Acqua di Parma Colonia bottles, and calls to mind the shimmering glints of the sea. Chinotto di Liguria is written on the label with a terracotta tone, the colour of the chinotto fruit after it has been candied, while the signature, handmade hatbox in blue embossed paper is the perfect packaging for this delightful essence of Liguria. This Eau de Toilette is available in three di erent sizes: 150ml, 75ml and the handy 30ml, perfect for travelling.
Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Hand Cream and Lip Balm are new formulas and innovative textures caress the mind and body with the refreshing aroma of Chinotto di Liguria. These essential accoutrements, part of a Mediterranean beauty ritual, will envelop your senses while letting you live the resplendent freshness of Liguria all day long.
