Eau de Cologne
Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’s Acqua di Colonia Russa fragrance is a bouquet of fresh aromatic citrus notes. Russian cologne was quite a popular fragrance in the early 1800s and each perfumer added a personal touch to his own version. The Santa Maria Novella monks created their own formulation, with citrus top notes and spicy floral middle notes.
Fragrance Notes: Aromatic fresh citrus
Top: citrus, Calabrian bergamot
Middle: petitgrain, green aromatic notes, clove
Base: Sumatra benzoin
Great summer scent with a hint of woods/leather.
Close to perfect.
Russa is an elegant and timeless scent. The fragrance is reminiscent of classic Italian eau de colognes, very clean, citrusy and natural. The scent is perfect for spring and summer and really reminds me of visits to my family in Procida. An absolutely beautiful and sophisticated cologne. Top notch customer service too.
