Laboratorio Olfattivo Arancia Rossa Eau de Cologne is a unisex citrus eau de cologne. Master perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena, inspired by his love for Italy, has signed a collection for Laboratorio Olfattivo called "Viaggio in Italia by Jean-Claude Ellena", whose stages are: Mandarin, Lemon, Bergamot and the new Arancia Rossa Eau de Cologne the representations of the typically Italian joie de vivre and good humour. Fragrances that are like "a ray of sunshine on a typically winter day". A fruit so juicy and carnal that it is linked, in the collective imagination, to battles and celebrations. So popular and earthy in our memories, as elegant and sophisticated in its olfactory compositions.
"If bergamot is elegant, lemon energetic, mandarin joyful, orange is sunny and tragic in its destiny. or is elegant, lemon energetic, mandarin joyful, orange is sunny and tragic in its destiny. In the city of Ivrea, not far from Turin, every year in February, a battle of oranges is the most awaited moment of the historic Carnival. In 1801, The War of the Oranges was the one that saw the defeat of Portugal by Spain, and it took this name because Prince Manuel Godoy y Álvarez de Faria sent baskets of fruit to his mistress, the Queen, to celebrate the victory. The revenge of the oranges was to be called Portugual in the perfume industry for a long time. The oranges praised and sold by the merchants accompany the tragic end of Carmen in Bizet's opera of the same name. Of all the stories, my favourite is the offering of oranges at Christmas, a gift of light, a message to herald the end of winter, rebellious fruits that dress the colour of summer".
