Fresh as a gentle breeze, it warms up, then comes back fresh. Soft and relaxing, with a pungent touch. It's Juniper of Sardinia, the new fragrance by Acqua di Parma - a trademark of the giant LVMH -. I find it highly suitable in these days of late spring, it reminds me of the blue sky of Sardinia, of the gleaming white beaches of this wonderful isle praised by the writer Grazia Deledda.
Anche la piramide olfattiva è particolare. Apre con bergamotto, pepe, pimento, noce moscata, ha un cuore di salvia officinale, ginepro (di Sardegna!) e cipresso. Alla base, il calore del cedro di Virginia. Il lato piccante (ma non troppo, davvero) del profumo è dato proprio dal ginepro, bacca mediterranea che cresce, in diverse varietà, in Sardegna.
Even the olfactory pyramid is special. It opens with bergamot, pepper, nutmeg, has a heart of sage, juniper - of Sardinia! - and cypress. At the base, the heat of Virginia cedar. The spicy side - but not too much, really - is given by the scent of juniper, a Mediterranean berry that grows in several varieties in Sardinia.
Around the fragrance Acqua di Parma has created an entire line. The Energizing Shower Gel cleanses gently and, thanks to Juniper, gives energy. The scent is very light. Together with the Body Milk is enriched with sucrose and vitamin E to moisturize the skin.
The latter has a light texture, absorbs instantly and leaves your skin well hydrated.
I'm glad it was included in the line even the deodorant, without the terrible aluminum salts. This is a great splash of freshness that lasts all day. And with the heat that is coming up in Italy it is a happy news :)
