Acqua di Parma
Acqua di Parma Colonia Quercia is a men's amber spicy fragrance that was launched in 2016. Quercia is the scent of a journey to Piedmont. Travelling among the aristocratic families of Piedmont you will come along one of their traditional symbols - the oak tree. Considered a sacred tree since ancient times, it is also a symbol of generosity and courage. The soft moss which grows on its bark is considered one of the most precious and rare ingredients used in perfumery. It anchors two classes of perfume - fougere and chypre although it has been severely restricted in its use in its natural form.
Quercia features top notes of bergamot, lemon, petitgrain and pink pepper; middle notes of geranium, cardamom and cedarwood; and base notes of oakmoss, tonka bean and patchouli. It is a beautiful mixture of the citrus clarity of Colonia and the scent of moss as you take a long walk in the woods. Quercia is an Eau de Cologne Concentrée.
Fragrantica: "This elegant fragrance blends citrus with light florals and traces of wood and spices to elicit a remarkably fresh take on gentlemen’s colognes."
Fragrantica: "An exceptional masterpiece that excudes a presence of sophistication and confidence. The Citrus pairing with the Oakmoss is unique and balanced amazingly with the tonka adding a rounded smoothness to its character."
