A recent visit to the Principe hotel in Milan had us in a lather about the products in the bathroom. Acqua Di Parma's zingy yellow treats helped us rediscover the classic Colonia fragrance. First produced in 1916, Colonia's main ingredients, citrus fruit from Sicily, lavender, bergamot, verbena, and Bulgarian rose encapsulate everything you think about Italy and the Mediterranean sunshine.
Fragrance isn't just about perfume or eau de toilette, a shower gel allows you to combine the scent with the refreshing sensation of the shower; a double burst of memory and escapism leaving you feeling like you've just opened the window onto the Italian Riviera rather than damp, drizzly Britain.
