If you’re in awe of Italian bergamot fields and their unique fragrance, Acqua di Parma has got you covered with a brand-new edition. A variation on 2010’s Bergamotto di Calabria, the marquee has recently unveiled the Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura.
In representing the true essence of bergamot, the limited-edition perfume features the softness and natural richness of the plant along with tones of mandarin and orange. It also contains hints of grapefruit, Galbanum, and geranium, along with sharp notes of cedar and vetiver to round it off.
To manufacture the perfume, two artisans go through between 75 to 100 kg of fruit in an hour (with at least 200 kg are required to obtain one kilogram of essential oil) that is collected, refined, and converted into the final product.
The unique scent is then stored in an exquisite porcelain bottle complete with white and gold bergamot shapes and a blue porcelain lid, made manually. The beautifully crafted decanters bear the words “Limited Edition – La Spugnatura” and come wrapped in a cylindrical box with PSC-certified paper in a special blue tone.
