Immediately, Camelia smells extremely oriental. Citrus notes are prominent at the top but then there is a cool spice (from the cardamom) that comes through. I really like this and find it to be one of the most interesting and unusual fragrances in the Signature of the Sun collection.

What They Say
The large cup-shaped corolla comes in all shades, from white to yellow to red. Acqua Di Parma chooses its yellow variety.
From the magnificent camellia flower, also known as oriental rose, a very fine powder is obtained, which is used to flavour tea. The image of the flower also adorns ancient Chinese porcelain and is loved all over the Far East as a symbol of purity and eternal love.
