One of the delightful joys of a fabulous hotel is discovering the special toiletries that often grace the soap dishes and tub trays in the bath. Acqua di Parma, with its distinctive yellow orange wrappings, is one of those. Sporting a delightfully fresh and light scent, the fragrance – whether in soap, lotion, or cologne – Acqua Di Parma is like a breath of freshly laundered linen dried by the sea.
The company’s original fragrance, Colonia, was created in 1916 in a small perfume factory in the center of Parma’s historic old town. At the time, the majority of commercial perfumes were much stronger and heavier in composition; so the unusually light and refreshing fragrance found wide success in Europe.
After a fresh scrubbing, there is the added joy of wrapping up in one of the brand’s fluffy, statement-making robes and towels. Trimmed in the “oh so elegant” Aqua di Parma yellow orange, even the most jet lagged traveler will have a healthy glow.
