I first fell in love with the original Acqua di Parma years ago at Bigelow's in NYC. I loved the crisp, brisk, Unisex citrus/woody scent and the strong, commanding bottle.
Now, for the first time in 5 years, they have launched a new Eau de Toilette, part of their Acqua Di Parma line, called Magnolia Nobile, a sophisticated floral woody scent. This time the scent is an ode to the Magnolia flower.
The scent opened on me with very bold citrus, falling easily into a beautiful floral bouquet that lingered harmoniously and luxuriously together during the day.
The dry down was woody, slightly spicy, and yet still soft - really lovely. It also has very impressive staying power. In the evenings I would often spritz some on before bed and wake up smiling at the lingering soft scent left on my skin.
This is perfect for the woman who likes rich, sophisticated European scents. - RLB
