This summer, Acqua di Parma takes us on a sensory journey with their latest creation, a fragrance that embodies joy, luminosity, and the warmth of the sunshine. Crafted through the rare and ancient La Spugnatura extraction method, practiced by only a handful of artisans in Italy, this fragrance offers a delicate collection of essences, brimming with nuances and richness. A limited edition rooted in Italian craftsmanship, it combines the freshness of sparkling citrus notes with soft and rounded undertones, resulting in a vivacious and multi-faceted composition. Encased in a deep blue porcelain bottle, meticulously formed through an intricate manual process, this fragrance is a testament to true artistry.

A technique that extracts precious essences that capture the fruit’s depth and opulence. The uplifting and sun-kissed notes of lemon and mandarin intertwine harmoniously with hints of bitter almond, while crisp injections of black pepper add volume and texture to this olfactory creation. A delicate touch of cedar wood and the sensuality of musk create an enveloping base, completing the fragrance’s captivating symphony. Master perfumer Francois Demachy has crafted a composition that balances the bittersweet essence of Sicilian oranges, offering an unexpectedly delightful olfactive experience.

In true homage to the craftsmanship and heritage of Acqua di Parma, this limited-edition fragrance is presented in a precious porcelain bottle, an exceptional masterpiece born from a traditional artisanal process. Each porcelain piece, including the bottle and cap, undergoes a deliberate and intricate manual transformation that spans hours. The intense blue color, reminiscent of the renowned Blu Mediterraneo collection, is achieved by adding cobalt to the mix. These gleaming porcelain creations are then meticulously adorned by hand with motifs in white, orange, and gold.

The result is an olfactory and visual delight—an extraordinary fragrance housed in a vessel that exemplifies the brand’s dedication to timeless artistry. Acqua di Parma’s Arancia La Spugnatura fragrance captures the essence of citrus in all its glory, inviting us to immerse ourselves in a symphony of scents that evoke joy, radiance, and the beauty of Italian craftsmanship – and that with only one spritz.
