Have you ever judged a beauty product entirely on the packaging? That's what happened when I bought the Forte_Forte Loves Acqua Di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Eau De Toilette. I fell head over heels in love with the packaging - from the mint green and purple case to the matching glass bottle and even the bracelet that's included with it. I have never really bought a luxury perfume of this level, and yet I was just drawn to it!
This fragrance is inspired by Panarea, an island suspended in time, and is an ode to the wild spirit of the Mediterranean shrub. This Limited Edition bottle features a wonderful sensory celebration of prints, colours, textures and of course the scent itself. Adorned with flutters of butterflies and flowers, a crochet emblem and the playful bracelet, this all-Italian collaborative edition is a joyous experience of rebirth and freedom.
At the heart of this 100ml Mirto di Panarea Eau de Toilette, it expresses a fragrance where the aromatic warmth of Myrtle is combined with Basil and sparkling Citrus accents of Lemon and Calabrian Bergamot. Sea Breeze accents and fresh Juniper notes meet Jasmine and Rose, bringing a feeling of calm and harmony. Notes of Mastic and Juniper along with Cedarwood and Amber complete the fragrance and give it an intense close.
Surrounded by an infinity of butterflies and dragonflies brilliantly captured in a kaleidoscopic print of emotions that adorn Acqua di Parma's signature cylinder box and the fragrance bottle, the Italian sun shines as a Sole crochet centrepiece radiating warmth and light to the vivid and luminous atmosphere of Panarea. The fragrance itself is an aromatic citrus that is perfect for Summer or all year round to remind you of those warm Summer evenings and certainly like nothing else I have in my collection. A little goes a long way, even though this is an Eau de Toilette rather than a stronger Eau de Parfum, and I personally find the fragrance to last throughout the day without having to respray.
