It is incredibly, opressively hot here right now and so Acqua di Parma's limited edition for this summer, called Colonia Assoluta Edizione Riviera, meant to "capture the joie de vivre" of the Riviera coastline sounds incredibly appealing.
Opening with a splash of citrus, this effervescent mix gives way to rose, jasmine and ylang-ylang. Warm, vibrant cardmom and red pepper add a sense of sophistication and give the scent its underlying intensity. At its heart are refined blonde woods that echo the enduring elegance of Colonia Assoluta. White musk and amber help to create a chic and lasting impression.Colonia Assoluta Edizione Riviera is available now for the summer months at Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, CO Bigelow and Neiman Marcus for $143.
