Acqua di Parma Colonia fragrance notes

Reviews of Acqua di Parma Colonia

All citrus from beginning to end. Softens with time, but still very much the same as the opening notes. While I know this is a classic and there are more modern versions of this theme that I think are done better, I'd still give this a thumbs up. Longevity on me was 5hrs, which is amazing considering the composition is traditionally a very short lasting fragrance.

Very Citrusy and fresh. I think its more suitable for summer than winter

Nice powdery, citrus eau de cologne. Very classic.

Is this the greatest traditional eau de cologne available? Maybe, it is certainly one of the best I have tried (along with Villoresi's). It fair springs from the bottle with an invigorating, cheerful burst of zesty freshness. The drydown is a wonderfully balanced integration of lemon, bergamot and lavender. For this genre, the longevity is a marvel. I get about 5 delightful hours from 5 sprays before it becomes a skin scent. This uplifting scent is the epitome of refinement. There are no harsh or chemical notes and everyone in sniffing distance will think a big shot has entered the room. The only fly in the ointment is that the rose note has recently been diluted almost to vanishing point. Still stunning though.

It not for me. That Sicilian citrus fruit note is a big turn-off for my nose. I tried and tried to like this fragrance but its not for my nose.

When I smelled this the first time I thought "this smells like an older scent" but I didn't know it was from 1916! I really got the citrus at first, then it died down to an herbal scent fairly fast. Does not last long though, four hours on me. It is a nice light fragrance, would do well in the warmer months. This is a fragrance that isn't real feminine or very masculine, so if your sexuality kind of goes down the middle of the road, this would be an excellent fragrance for you.
