1. ACQUA DI PARMA Signatures Of The Sun Yuzu, $330, /100ml
Acqua di Parma’s Signatures Of The Sun collection features three new Asian-inspired scents – Osmanthus, Yuzu, and Vaniglia – along with Ambra, Sandalo, Quercia, OUD, and Leather in a repackaged format. Among them, we like Yuzu the most. Acqua di Parma artistically interprets the bitter-sweet tones of the Yuzu, in an extraordinarily radiant composition created for the Signatures of the Sun collection. The meeting with bergamot, releases all the sun that the Yuzu collects in the earth where it grows. Surprisingly, the spicy touch of the Sichuan pepper lets the fragrance vibrate in a dynamic crescendo, which finds its expression in the flowering heart. A bright explosion that unites the delicate tones of mimosa, leaves of violet and jasmine with the sensuality of the lotus flower. At the base, suddenly the elegant warmth of sandalwood and the transparency of musk strike and merge with the fresh aroma of liquorice.
Available at Takashimaya, Robinsons The Heeren, Robinsons Raffles City, escentials Paragon and escentials Tangs from September 2019.
