Acqua di Parma Colonia Leather ~ new fragrance

Acqua di Parma Colonia Leather

Italian niche line Acqua di Parma has launched Colonia Leather, a new flanker to 1916's Acqua di Parma Colonia.

An original creation born from the unconventional pairing of the freshness of citrus notes found in the iconic Colonia fragrance with the rich and sensual caress of aromatic leather. Colonia Leather Eau de Cologne Concentrée recalls the artistic luxury and traditions of handcrafted leather and accessories.

Sparkling citrus top notes of Brazilian Orange and Sicilian Lime open to reveal a warm heart of Rose and Paraguayan Petit grain. The fragrance concludes with the richness of leather, Cedar Atlas and Paraguayan Guaic woods.

Colonia Leather Eau de Cologne Concentrée marks the birth of an exquisite new fragrance creation that stands out for its rare elegance and precious nature.

Acqua di Parma Colonia Leather is $210 for 100 ml Eau de Cologne Concentrée, and can be found now at Barneys or Neiman Marcus.

    Sounds lovely!

      Good! I admit I’m not a fan of Colonia so not likely I’m going to love it, but hope you do.

  2. Markus says:

    Cheesiest backing music in an advert I’ve heard for ages (and that’s saying something!) – really cheapens the brand in my opinion. That said, I do enjoy the Colonia Essenza so I will be looking out for this.

    • Robin says:

      It sounded like game music to me, but my son actually came in the room because he thought it was the theme music to Sherlock.

  3. Petitgrain says:

    Ah! I was so looking forward to try this. It is very nice, however there is no reason for this to exist when we have Tom Ford Tuscan Leather.
    I have to say that Acqua Di Parma has not shown any originality with this and their oud fragrance. Oud is very ordinary and this one, though fabulous is very similar to Tom Ford. The notes written on the bottle even confirm that, e.g. this has raspberry too.
    Some people say that this is easier to wear than Tom Ford, true to an extent. It also does not last as long as TF. However if you want a great leather experience why compromise? Just go ahead and get the TF.
