Perfumes aren’t just a reflection of who you are, they also tell a story and evoke memories and emotions. Your perfect perfume match can lift your mood and instantly make you feel like the very best version of you – bringing out your confident, sensual or playful side with each spritz.

Step into the world of prestige perfumes and find out what makes them different from other perfume types. We’ll also take a closer look at the prestige perfume brand Acqua di Parma, and explore its range of premium scents.

What Are Prestige Perfumes?

Prestige perfumes focus more on fragrance, offering opulent scents that not only stimulate your senses but also take your olfactory experiences to the next level. Unlike their more basic counterparts, which often lean towards sweeter scents and may incorporate synthetic materials, prestige perfumes tend to come with a higher concentration of fragrance oils, which gives them a better scent trail and makes the fragrance last longer.

Depending on the type of perfume you’re using, it can have as much as 15-30% concentration (pure perfumes), 15-20% (eau de parfum), 5-15% (eau de toilette) or 2-4% (eau de cologne).

Prestige perfumes are also made with premium ingredients for their raw materials, which may entail painstaking procurement and processing to create a high-quality fragrance. These perfumes may use the finest fragrance or essential oils, whose properties are expertly harnessed to create superior scents that leave a lasting impression.

Prestige perfumes are so popular because they’re able to encapsulate the essence of their wearer’s personality while letting them dip their toes into the world of luxury. Premium luxury perfume brands like Acqua di Parma offer a selection of iconic fragrances that will give you a unique sensory experience every time.

Want to bring home a slice of the Mediterranean with you? Take home a bottle or two from the Blu Mediterraneo collection. Acqua Di Parma Blu Mediterraneo - Fico Di Amalfi is a fragrant distillation of the Amalfi Coast that has a fruity, floral profile.
