Acqua di Parma has launched a new Limited Edition fragrance for the Summer, Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura. As with all the fragrances in the Blu Mediterraneo Collection, they each take inspiration from a specific part of the Italian Mediterranean, the origin for this fragrance being the beautiful bergamot fields of Calabria. It is here where a special and rare process of juice extraction by hand is used; “La Spugnatura”.
Practiced by only a few artisans in the world, the bergamot essence is manually extracted in this fascinating traditional process, a true art which requires time and skilful, precise gestures. It is then housed in a beautifully hand finished porcelain bottle in the deep blue colour, embellished with beautiful golden bergamot fruits.
Head Notes: Bergamot, Bitter Orange, Mandarin, Grapefruit
Heart Notes: Galbanum, Geranium
Base Notes: Cedarwood, Vetiver
The fragrance is available exclusively at John Lewis and on johnlewis.com now priced at £124 for 100ml and will be available nationwide from 1st May.
