Colonia EDC 100ml
Colonia was first created in 1916, becoming an iconic Italian fragrance that grew in popularity pre war in the 1930’s and post war in the 1950’s. Since then, the Colonia legend has prevailed and a collection under the Colonia name has developed. All based on the original aromatic and elegant Colonia.
The original Colonia is pure elegance in fragrance form, quite simply a classic. Both the fragrance and the perfume house rose to international success in the 1950s, when Hollywood film stars travelled to Italy and discovered the fragrance range in highly exclusive tailor shops, where it's unmistakable Italian style and elegance was heightened. Stars such as Cary Grant, David Niven, Ava Gardner, Eva Turner and Audrey Hepburn were all fans of the legendary Colonia fragrance.
Colonia embodies the quintessential Italian sense of lightness and sophistication, reflected by a harmonious blend of aromatic, citrus and floral notes. A timeless fragrance that is well loved and enduring. Colonia is the fresh and elegant embodiment of Italy.

HOW IT WEARS
Colonia by Acqua Di Parma is an Eau de Cologne that should give the wearer anywhere from 4 - 6 hours on the skin. It’s aromatic and slightly spicy citrus and floral notes create a delightful balance of uplifting freshness and earthier depth, whilst also giving moderate projection and longevity equally.
We love the way this original creation of Colonia was the first of it’s kind. We also love that having been created in 1916, this original concoction of Colonia captures all the feels of Italy in the beginning of the 20th century. A beautiful and complex citrus scent, worn by pre and post war stars and celebrities of the silver screen, both men and women alike. A charming and classy, old school classic…and a little piece of history.
