The Rosa Nobile fragrance has recently been released by the Italian house Acqua di Parma. Acqua di Parma’s Rosa Nobile is a tribute to the ”Queen of Flowers”. It includes Sicilian mandarin, Calabrian Bergamot, Pepper, Musk, Peony and Italian Rosa Centifolia, just to name a few ingredients. The perfume complements the luxurious, sophisticated and very elegant collection of fragrances
I’m a HUGE fan of Acqua di Parma products. I’ve been using the Iris Nobile perfume ever since it came out and I always receive compliments whenever I wear it so I was really excited when this new perfume came out. The men’s perfumes and colognes are also to-die-for!! I believe that every single man and woman should at least own one Acqua di Parma fragrance. The entire brand and range of products are timeless, classic, luxurious and very Italian! All of their products are heavenly and perfect for gifting! After trying out their products you can tell that the brand only uses the best ingredients. They’re a bit pricey but worth every penny if you ask me.
Acqua di Parma was founded in 1916 in Italy in a small city called; Parma. The brand has kept the essence of the classic Italian style and until now, the brand has remained successful and their products are popular amongst many celebrities. Acqua di Parma features mainly fresh perfumes, colognes and aromatherapy products.
I can talk for hours about the brand and their products but let’s get back to the Rosa Nobile…. The heart of the fragrance is a Rose Absolute which is a particular rose that only grows in Italy. The rose has been chosen for it’s precious wood and honey accents from a rose garden near the city of Alba. The picking lasts 40 days long in May and June when the scent reaches its peak and is the most intense.
Top Notes | Sicilian mandarin, Calabrian bergamot, Pepper
Heart Notes | Peony, Violet, Lily-of-the-valley, Italian Rosa Centifolia
Base Notes | Cedar wood, Ambergris, Musk
Rosa Nobile opens with Citrus notes of Bergamot and Mandarin, enhanced by Pepper notes. The Italian rose is at the heart of the fragrance, supported by a pretty floral accord of Violet, Peony and Lily-of-the-Valley. The base features Cedar wood, Ambergris and Musk accord.
My thoughts on the fragrance
I love the citrusy freshness of the top note. I’m not a big fan of the heart notes, I think it’s the Violet that creates that ”cheap” scent. But luckily the base note makes up for it, once its settled into the skin it becomes such a beautiful feminine and elegant fragrance! I guess that’s the art of having top, heart and base notes.
What I’ve experienced with this perfume may vary on each skin type. Some skin types may not adapt a few notes like it did on mine. Also, the fragrance lasted very long on my skin for about 6 hours. Another timeless and elegant perfume created by Acqua di Parma…
The fragrance is available in the sizes 50 ml & 100 ml along with body care products.
Price: 680 AED (100 ml)
