Acqua Di Parma Colonia

Item Description

From Acqua Di Parma:

"Perfect blend of Sicilian citrus fruit...flower essences...english lavendar, rosemary, verbena, and Bulgarian rose...precious oriental woods as sandalo mysore, vetiver, cedar and ylang ylang."

I was surprised to see this was not already reviewed here. This is one of those colognes that just make you say "aaah this is what I was looking for" and "damn thats good". It is an Italian scent so you know there will some complexity to it. I'm not a professional reviewer so bare with me.

The opening is clearly a clean and fresh sicilian citrus. The topnotes of this scent are second to none. The middle notes are more citrus with lavendar and some rosemary with other slight woody characteristics. The basenotes here are mainly floral and the citrus and other notes almost disappear.

I'm not a floral cologne person so this is why I prefer Colonia Assoluta versus the original Colonia. The cost is not the best but this is not an everyday wear, maybe once a week and special occasions - you get what you pay for.

The staying power could be a little better but its not too bad considering the basenotes are floral.

It is available at Nordstroms, Nieman Marcus and some Sephora stores. You can always go in and try the testers.

Pros: packaging seems nice ?
Cons: scent lasts maybe 5 minutes ? smells like perfume
I bought this because everyone on here said it was so good. Went on e bay , ordered it, and man was I let down. It smells like old lady perfume, but I figured I'd try it anyway. I gave myself about 4 sprays, and about 15 minutes later the scent was completely gone, no one even knew I was wearing a scent. Don't waste your time and money on this..

This is the best cologne ever conceived.....EVER! I gave it all 10s because it is perfect on all counts. AdP is the crispest, cleanest, & lightest scent you will come across. The best way to peg the scent is "citrusy floral". When first applied the citrus takes center stage. Upon drydown the florals kick in and a warm rosiness develops with the citrus lingering in the background. On my skin it lasts all day. My body chemistry just works with the stuff and I am so glad it does because this unique frag is a one of a kind since 1916. A must try for everyone!
