Acqua di Parma’s sun-soaked Blue Mediterraneo collection adds another incredible scent to its ranks with the limited edition Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura. Created using the handcrafted extraction of bergamot, La Spagnutura captures the very essence of Italy’s sun-drenched ‘golden fruits’ just as they’re picked from leafy green branches.
The Most Important Thing About This Product Is…
La Spugnatura is authentically citrus – as you’d expect to find from an ADP fragrance. The scent can only be likened to the experience of picking fresh citrus fruits in the heart of Italy as it perfectly captures all the subtle nuances that the golden citrus fruits have to offer.
The opening of this Eau de Toilette is where the fragrance gets its sunny disposition and energising feel with zingy sweetened citrus notes of bergamot, mandarin, orange and grapefruit. Borrowed from Calabria, the fresh heart of galbanum and geranium is where the scene starts to pan out from picking golden fruits; it invites you to imagine that you’re surrounded by the beauty of nature as green floral aromas surround you and captivate the senses. At the base, cedarwood and vetiver give the Eau de Toilette its woody sensuality and a dewy green backdrop that make the golden fruits in this composition really sing!
You Will Love This If…
If you’re a fan of the Blu Med collection, you’ll be sure to love this addition as it possesses everything that you love from the line. The exquisite Italian craftsmanship that runs through the entirety of Acqua di Parma’s fragrances – from the handcrafted technique of the La Spugnatura bergamot extraction, down to the fired, hand-decorated porcelain flacon.
Mediterraneo Bergamotto di Calabria Smells Similar To:
Bergamotto di Calabria possesses rich citrus intensity that is the signature of Acqua di Parma fragrances. If I had to liken this scent to real-life experience, it would have to be when you’ve just picked a ripe orange off a leafy green orange tree and you can smell it in the palms of your hands.
Is Acqua Di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Bergamotto di Calabria Unisex?
Yes – the citrus signature can be loved and appreciated by both men and women who adore rich citrus scents.
What’s The Longevity Like?
Calabria lasts for around 4-6 hours, which is typical of a traditional Eau de Toilette.
What’s The Story?
With all Acqua di Parma fragrances from the Blu Mediterraneo line, the story is of Italian origin. The collection highlights the most sought after locations in Italy as it transports you to the idyllic landscape of Calabria, a sun-drenched spot that’s littered with golden fruits, which is celebrated here through a truly exquisite example of craftsmanship!
What’s Special About The Bottle?
