Reviews of Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza

A solid cologne that’s ideal for office and formal scenarios, and also works well in summer casual setting (it lacks the flair of Neroli Portofino Forte, but it’s perhaps more versatile and it is considerably less expensive). It’s not a young person’s scent but not old-fashioned or out-dated either. It’s probably not a top 10 for me but it is a clean reliable ‘daily driver’ for more formal occasions

Love it all the way, only problem is longevity, however, I always over spray to overcome this problem. I believe its better than original colonia,assaluta,intensa & pura.

I was really excited to try this one since I love Mugler Cologne and Creed Original Vetiver and this is touted by some as being in the same genre. The scent, though pleasant enough, was actually worse than Salvatore Farragamo's Acqua Essenziale Colonia as far as barbershop scents go, and worse than Mugler Cologne as far as green neroli fragrances go. And longevity and sillage were not good at all on my skin. So this gets a pass unfortunately. Acqua di Parma's Colonia Oud remains the best fragrance in their collection in my opinion.

By far my favourite fragrance.

The opening is similar to the original Acqua di Parma Colonia but it seems to me that they exchanged the lavender in the original to neroli.

In my imagination this fragrance is the equivalent to walking through an orange blossom orchard in Italy.

Elegance in a bottle.

(Please never change this fragrance!)

Amazing neroli/citrus start then drying down to a soapy/green scent. A gentleman's fragrances that radiates sophistication and cleanliness. Great longevity for a cologne. Maybe just a bit too soapy for me but still a great addition to the Colonia line up.

8/10

I find AdP Essenza to be a neroli prominent concentrated eau de cologne, with other citrus notes blended in, including lemon and orange. Unlike neroli dominant concentrated eau de colognes like Neroli Portofino or Cologne Indelelbile, it is not simplistic and is more interesting, as it borrows the refined and nuanced compositional skeleton from the classic Acqua di Parma Colonia. I find the floral elements to be almost indiscernible, as they come together to provide a supporting cast to the neroli-lemon-citrus composition. It is soapy, and at times bears a clean-fresh barbershop aspect (depending on one's reference for a barbershop). The dry down has noticeable woods, and is woodier compared to the original. I find it to have low key but consistent projection, and good duration on skin at over six hours.

Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza is nice in summers, but perhaps even better in spring and early fall, or on slightly cooler days. My only issue with this scent is that on the odd days I find it to be either boring, or it outstays its welcome. This is very much a matter of personal taste, as otherwise Essenza is definitely worthy of consideration for anyone looking for a concentrated eau de cologne - a category that I don't particularly care for in the first place.
