Acqua di Parma reinterprets the bottle of its iconic fragrance, to celebrate the new boutique in Piazza di Spagna.
Acqua di Parma celebrates the new Boutique in Piazza di Spagna in Rome with a highly prized special edition of Colonia. The unmistakeable Art Deco bottle of the iconic fragrance is adorned with unique decorations, based on the Boutique concept. Bright elegant spaces designed in the manner of an authentic Italian house of contemporary design.
In a limited edition of only 300 numbered bottles, Colonia Edizione Speciale Roma (Colonia Special Edition Rome) is a small masterpiece of Italian craftsmanship. Every detail echoes the interior design of the Boutique, where furniture, objects and coverings are distinguished by the combinations between materials, the basic shapes and the attractive play of light and shade. The glass bottle has irregular geometric shapes running through it, in Parma yellow and black tones, colours which are the symbol of the Maison. The overall effect, essential and uid, is conjured up in particular by the Boutique’s chandelier setting, comprising numerous handmade glass items.
Acqua di Parma entrusted the production of Colonia Edizione Speciale Roma to the most highly skilled Tuscan craft makers. Every individual model, painted entirely by hand, shows slight differences making them unique. A matchless expression of that imperfect perfection which is at the heart of all genuine craft work. A vital tradition which characterises all the Maison’s creations. Attention to the smallest details is also found in the bottle top, on which the model number and the city to which this limited edition is dedicated are engraved by hand. The label, attached by hand on the bottle and on the cylindrical box in bright Parma yellow, bears the mark of the emblem and the wording “Colonia Edizione Speciale Roma” (Colonia Special Edition Rome). In the 100ml version, Colonia Edizione Speciale Roma is available exclusively at the Boutique in Piazza di Spagna. An edition combining art, design and craftsmanship, in line with the values of the Maison. An original creation, giving the pleasure of discovering the light radiant aromas of Colonia. The natural perfume of the Italian spirit with the sparkling opening scents of the bright Frutti d’Oro lemon, orange and bergamot of Calabria. At the heart of the fragrance, the subtle freshness of the aromatic essences of lavender, verbena, rosa bulgara and rosemary.
The background closure is perfect, with the warm tones of rich wood, such as vetiver, sandalwood and patchouli. The delicate nature of the hand-decorated surface requires special care. To preserve the beauty of the craft work and keep its appeal, we recommend cleaning the glass using just a damp cloth. Do not wash it in hot water or use solvents and detergents in general.
