Acqua Di Parma’s original Colonia is one of those scents that we’re pretty sure has universal appeal. Even if you’re not a fragrance fan, it’s near impossible not to fall for the neroli, verbena, lavender, and Bulgarian rose eau, which manages to be simultaneously sweet, fresh, and powdery all at once. While originally created for men, the perfumed splash has a gender-neutral quality that makes it a particularly good holiday gift, especially since the almost 100-year-old citrus blend has been repackaged in a new limited-edition flacon that is itself a work of art. Acqua di Parma has teamed up with renowned Italian architect and artist Luca Scacchetti to create a black, Art Deco-inspired design emblazoned across the brand’s classic, cylindrical glass flacon. As a bonus, the refillable bottle comes with a metal funnel, so you can continue to use it once you run out of its precious contents. And run out you will: Another thing we love about the Colonia is that as an eau de cologne, it boasts a significantly lighter concentration of essential oils than an eau de toilette or an eau de parfum, allowing you to spritz it liberally and often.
