Colonial Leather Acqua di Parma


“Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather,” demanded Lou Reed on The Velvet Underground’s 1967 single Venus In Furs. And, while we probably wouldn’t go quite so far as to actually get off with a leather shoe, we can certainly appreciate the gentlemanly aroma of a brand new one.

So, it seems, can the finely fragranced folks at Acqua di Parma. The brand’s excellent new scent Colonial Leather features the rich, textured aroma of new leather at its core, and also contains notes of Agarwood oil, Sicilian lemon, cocoa and Brazilian orange oil to create a distinctly potent and luxurious result. If you want some for yourself, it’s available from a starting price of £140, and comes in either a 100ml or 180ml variety.
