The latest fragrance for the Dapper Chapper team to review is the newest addition to the Acqua di Parma Maison.
Colonia C.L.U.B was released last month, so let us help set the scene.
COLONIA C.L.U.B represents a new inclusive ‘club’ that celebrates unforgettable moments: The desire to be with friends, the happiness of sharing new experiences and new discoveries, an impromptu dinner, the aperitif in one’s favourite spot, or even a weekend trip.
A genderless and welcoming C.L.U.B., with four letters, unique and distinct, each one with a precise meaning:
- C for Community,
- L for Life,
- U for Unique,
- B Bond, the fundamental values of this community.
The bottle, made of clear glass, is an ode to light-heartedness and inclusiveness. Green, which characterises both the label and the top, as well as the cylindrical box, conveys the aromatic notes of the fragrance, while the logo and the emblem in gold enhance their bright tones. If you were hoping for the iconic Acqua di Parma bottle with Art Deco influences then you won’t be disappointed.
The fragrance itself is spicy and woody. Top notes include Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Lemon and Black Pepper. Middle notes are Shiso (which is a Japanese herb in the mint family) and Rosemary; base notes are Cedar and Musk.
COLONIA C.L.U.B. also boasts some environmentally-friendly credentials. With a view to sustainability, the bottle, which is made partly of recycled glass, and with a top made of recycled plastic, is fitted with a dispenser which helps make it easy to separate for recycling. The outer packaging is made of 100% FSC cardboard, a certification that promotes responsible forestry management worldwide. Finally, the labels are made of fully recyclable mono-material.
Personally, I think it’s the strongest addition to the Colonia range to date, which of course includes the iconic original Colonia.
50ml will set you back £86 and it’s £116 for 100ml.
