christmas-golden-ball-gifts


Let’s continue with the holiday season and gifts theme! This round, I am sharing about a very elegant, exclusive brand that has captured the hearts of men and women who truly appreciate classic culture and style.

Acqua di Parma arrived in Malaysian shores through its flagship store in Parkson Pavilion in 2011. If you’re a fan of unique and sophisticated brands, you will definitely love the collections from this brand. Classical-themed but modern products characterize this historic Italian brand.

Acqua di Parma has a wide range of products including extended line of handcrafted leather goods, aromatherapy products, candles, linens and terrycloth bathrobes, and new perfumes. The brand also offers candles that perfume and decorate the home, and room sprays to give a special touch even to drawers and cupboards.

Since 1916, Acqua di Parma has embodied the essence of Italian elegance and savoir vivre, delivering a universe of taste and quality, whilst being an expression of subtle and timeless sophistication. Acqua di Parma offers an unparalleled selection of prestigious products for the personal toilette, for moments of relaxation, for a place where style is an essential part of living.

To complement the existing classic collections, Acqua di Parma is offering a unique selection of limited edition gift sets, exclusively for the holiday season 2013. 

Here are some great gifts for loved ones and perfect gifts for yourself! My recent visit to Pavilion has awaken some gift ideas with fragrances and body care sets. And for those who are looking for classy gifts for the husband, boyfriend or simply for the important man of your life, Acqua di Parma also has gift sets for men.
