Chinotto di Liguria BLU MEDITERRANEO is an inspiring collection from Acqua di Parma that celebrates the beauty and soul of the Mediterranean and its vivid and beautiful landscapes.
A refreshing and lively scent inspired by a unique land of contrasts. This fragrance is centred around the extremely rare chinotto fruit. Called Chinotto di Liguria (a coastal region of north-western Italy). it is a small orange-type fruit which had been used by the Italians to make fizzy drinks, but had somewhat disappeared.
The top notes of the fragrance are enhanced by the bittersweet notes of the chinotto fruit and the sparkling crispness of mandarin. At its heart, jasmine and geranium bloom with the dynamic and refreshing notes of cardamom and rosemary. It is rounded off with the peace and tranquility accorded by the base notes of musk and patchouli.
Blu Mediterraneo Chinoto isn’t your standard sparkling citrus fragrance. It’s more interesting than that. It has a warm spiciness – cardamom – which seems to keep the fragrance in the background, but it has a heat and intensity that keeps it resonating. It’s like the heat from coastal rocks after a long day in the sun in Liguria alongside Chinotto and Mandarin trees.
Acqua di Parma Chinotto di Liguria is available now in 75 and 150ml Eau de Toilette.
