    This is a lovely little citrus/floral that consits of rosemary, orange blossom, lemon and bergamot. The lemon and bergamot appear sharp and crisp initally with the orange blossom and rosemary being the more dominant notes throughout its wearing.

    Feel free to pour it on, as it's not overpowering at all and it's likely to be gone after a couple of hours, but it's what is expected. I say it's a worthwhile citrus to have on your shelf.

    Also - I am not sure the relationship to other bottles of 1916. Mine is "Agua de Colonia: 1916" - and I see some other bottles for sale that just say 1916 that have different labels and boxes and whatnot.

    This is a superb "Aqua de Colonia", it puts 4711 to shame, better than either Extra Vieille or Acqua di Parma, it even replaced Borsari Acqua Classica as my favorite Eau de Cologne.
    A clearly unisex fragrance, even more masculine than any of the Eau de Cologne I just mentioned.
    Sillage and logevity are better than any Eau de Cologne I know, but do not expect much, it is just an Eau de Cologne after all.
    My most enthusiastic thumbd up.

    '1916' evokes very dear childhood memories to me, since it was the 'eau de cologne' of choice for my beloved grandmother. It is most definitely a unisex fragrance, and several (young) friends of mine use it in Madrid. It is fresh, citric and not cloying. Most definitely thumbs up from Oscar.

    Agua di Colonia is the full name of this wonderful classical citrus. It has more longevity than is usual in this family which isn't primarily meant to perfume. I am partly reminded of Roger & Gallet's Extra Vielle, an Acqua di Parma without the rose! It would be an ideal travel companion in warmer climates.
