A herbal-citrus blast greets me: lemon, petitgrain and grapefruit - more ripe pink grapefruit- mines with a lot of basil, clary sage and a large dose of rosemary. Most importantly, I get the cypress from the start, and it is a well-made lovely cypress impression indeed.

In the drydown Inget a touch of spiciness - think cardamom with coriander, but the gist is a floral basket that is dominated by a dark green jasmine impression. A good lashing of muguet and a traditional lavender are also present, arms are the occasional whiff of oleander. A pine note also arises, which blends with the cypress that is lingering on until the end anyway.

The base, continuing the pine and as cypress, adds a modicum of cedarwood, but it also develops a soft patchouli that blends in nicely with a rather smooth oakmoss that lacks as any sharpness on me. The base is darker in character, with only a glowing vetiver adding a brighter glimpse but without any earthy component.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

This scent for warm autumn days is a complex composition that is far from the original Colonia concept of this House, but after the very first Colonia they launched more than a hundred years ago it is one of the most convincing products of Acqua di Parma. Not only is the cypress quite beautiful, the pine is not to much of a Pine-o-clean on me, and most of the other ingredients are of a high quality and they are blended beautifully without losing structure. A few generic moments cannot distract from the overall positive impression. 3.75/5.

I get strong rosemary I notice in Cool Water and basil which dominate the citrus. After awhile the floral and lavender kick in. The pine is ever present and eventually the other woods show up. It's a pass for me. The people who would like this the most would be into sport scents. This is the kind of thing I would smell in the locker-room.

Clean and gentle fresh cologne. A bit anonymous - and frankly also a bit "toilet freshener" - but you may take it as "understated". Totally un-worthy the price tag.

5/10

I can fully understand why some people would hate this - the opening of this now discontinued fragrance is pure pine fresh toilet cleaner. If you can hang on for 5 minutes until the loud initial blast of pine wears off you are left with a wonderful citrus, basil and salty Mediterranean cypress smell that is very light and summery as well as smoky, with medium longevity of a few hours (which is much longer than the rest of this range!!) Shame it was discontinued as lovers of pine scents (like me) will really dig this stuff, it smells like walking through scorching hot pine trees on a sun baked mediterranean island..

If you can find it the also discontinued body wash of Cipresso di Toscana is wonderful too

Pros: one of the purest pine scents around
Cons: can smell like toilet cleaner"</p>

A woody lavender very reminiscent of 80s scents like Drakkar Noir. Nicely made and deserves its fan base, but the opposite of unique.

Gorgeous cypress and vetiver mainly. Smells really natural, with average lasting power. Very pleasant and unique. It has indeed a barber shop vibe, which in my opinion makes it refined and classic.
