Profumo Eau De Parfum, Acqua di Parma
Acqua di Parma Profumo is an exclusive and elegant fragrance launched in the 1930s (their first fragrance, incidentally, formulated for women). A composition of 300+ natural ingredients, Profumo is a veritable symphony of scent, just a few notes of which are three different varieties of jasmine, three varieties of bergamot, exotic ylang ylang, earthy Florentine iris and dewy May rose. The heart of the fragrance is centered around a burst of spice soothed by base notes of precious woods and amber resins.
Profumo is a sophisticated composition for women who embrace timeless elegance. This soft, aromatic scent is comprised of heady, citrus top notes featuring three types of bergamot. The heart of the essence centers around a burst of spice soothed by base notes of precious woods and amber resins---all of which come together in the most marvelous of chypre accords.
The packaging is reminiscent of fine jewelry with a hand-applied natural-silk-covered box and a pillow form made of duchess satin.
The Art Deco flacon and the elegant white silk-lined box are hand-made by skilled artisans - and though a departure from the legendary bright yellow and black, it, too, has eschewed fashion fads through the decades and remains a veritable legend among fragrances. Rarer still, the composition of the fragrance itself has not been tinkered with since its launch.

We see this as what we'd like to slip into after our Colonia or our Assoluta has gasped its last, usually and conveniently right around the cocktail hour. There is simply no more perfect segue from day to night than khakis and Colonia to silks and PROFUMO.
