SANTA MARIA NOVELLA Acqua Di Colonia Cologne
One of the world's great fragrances, this classic cologne with a citrus base, was created for Catherine de Medici, who, when she went to France to marry Henry II, brought her personal perfume-maker with her. There are various versions of the legend which explain how the "Acqua della Regina" (Water of the Queen) came to be commercialized as a cologne. Still hand-formulated in Florence, this remarkably light and fresh scent combines the provocative citrus and bergamot with subtle white flowers and deeply exotic spices. Coveted by men and women alike, a unique aroma that's timeless and perfectly modern.
