Together they give a glorious lift to the composition which instantly creates a feeling of elation and optimism. If you have smelled Colonia Assoluta by Acqua di Parma you know what we’re talking about. From our catalogue Five (Bruno Fazzolari) is a great example with delicate wisps of herbal touches to enliven further the sunny and and woody heart of the composition.
