VIOLETTE & PARMA
The true history of Parma Violets is still a real mystery but today the most fragrant species are known as "Parma Violets" which was likely given thanks to the species introduced into Italy in the seventeenth century from Spain by the Duke of Parma.
From the first fragrance called Violetta di Parma created by Ludovico Borsari, (Parma 1846 -1928) severalvibrant perfume industries developed in the city of Parma. Thanks to the industrial production of the Borsari brand, perfume economically entered within the reach of many women and with the help of the first marketing campaigns, the fragrance of Violetta di Parma became famous all over the world.
The Borsari brand still exists and today is owned by a multinational based in Milan. La Violetta di Parmafragrance wants to keep alive the tradition and the link with our city, free from marketing strategies.
