Acqua di Biella Janca - the inspiration for your senses



Chiara Cantono is the owner and perfumer at Acqua di Biella. The exquisite Janca perfume, created for the “Acqua di Biella” line of fragrances, was named for the river that flows near Biella. With the Janca perfume, Chiara wanted in particular to inspire the senses. Janca is composed mostly of the fruity and floral notes of the nearby exotic gardens. The fruity top note unfolds with peach, tamarind and mandarine. The fine middle note comprises a delicate bouquet of lime flowers, osmanthus, magnolia, cardamon and the dominating iris. An aromatic and lightly spicy base note awaits, with cedarwood, white musk and a hint of patchouli. The Janca perfume is the magnificent consummation of a wonderful composition of precious ingredients – dominated by the graceful note of Florentine iris.
