CREED Acqua Fiorentina: leave a comment to be put in a drawing for a free bottle
Creed’s newest fragrance called Acqua Fiorentina was created by Olivier and Erwin Creed, a father son collaboration. Acqua Fiorentina is meant to portray a fruit orchard at dawn in Tuscany.
“A Spray of Hope” is the informal tagline the company is using for this juice because a portion of it’s proceeds will be donated to National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund.
Acqua Fiorentina is a perfect summer “eau” to me. It’s sheer, refreshing and joyous. I’ll list the notes below but what I smell is a jammy plum, followed by a delicate rose and cocoa powder heart with a cedar/pepper drydown. It’s a fruity floral to be sure, but it’s not too sweet, it’s just right.
Acqua Fiorentina was released to the UK in June and will be available to the US market in October.
Notes are listed as: greengage plum, Renaissance roses, bergamot orange and Calabrian lemon, finishing with base notes of cedarwood and sandalwood – all from the orchards and gardens of Florence.
Leave a comment and we’ll draw one lucky person this Saturday, August 1st. (United States and International, we're equal opportunity at I Smell Therefore I Am :-)
