Good Scents

Captivated by the beauty of his surroundings and the blazing sunshine over his city, the Italian baron Carlo Magnani collaborated with a local perfumer to create his own personal scent, a fragrance that exuded the fresh, crisp, and citrusy notes that reminded him of his hometown. That was in Parma, Italy, in 1916. Today the scent, Colonia, hasn’t aged at all; it remains one of the best-selling colognes from Acqua di Parma (acquadiparma.com). To mark its centenary, the brand has commissioned the Italian jeweler Damiani to create 100 glass flacons of Colonia ($1,105), each featuring a silver design that includes the Duke of Parma’s coat of arms and is topped with a black Bakelite cap. The flacons will be packaged by hand, as Colonia always has been, and presented in a bright-yellow box that recalls Parma’s sunbathed majesty. —Jeffrey Podolsky
