The world of fragrances shifted in 1916, with the development of Italy’s first eau de cologne, in Parma, Italy. Acqua di Parma’s Colonia offered men of the time a new smell that was quieter than popular German perfumes, while capturing a quality of fresh strength and elegance. To this day Colonia remains unchanged and continues to represent the best of Italian style. The Acqua di Parma brand provides complex fragrances for men and women, lotions, shave products and candles, all of which are held to the original high standard of Colonia. All Acqua di Parma glass bottles and toppers are hand crafted by Italian artisans. Aqua di Parma is a brand committed to tradition and infusing a bit of Italian luxury into the lives of those who dare.
