    Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa by Acqua di Parma

    woody aromatic fresh edt.
    the opening is at first sniff a bit medical harsh but quickly turns into a light version of encre noir with a bit of la nuit by YSL and terre dīhermes wishing it would become the brilliant and ingenious further development of eau sauvage (diorella) but far from it - it remains a cheap effort....eau sauvage, dirella,cristalle, Y, etc. will always remain unique and unreachable icons.
    Colonia intensa makes such an effort to be good but at the end itīs a huge disappointing scent, not bad but not what it intendend to be.Itīs an intense somehow fresh scent with a harsh spicy note- in the beginning you like it but you wait for more and expect - and in the end itīs thicky, nerving and exhausting.
    The whole trick of an inmortal perfume is a spectacular opening and a dry down that keeps the promises of the great opening and colonia ssoluta fails.It lacks of personality and singularity- it stands in the line of allure by chanel, terre dīhermes,tom ford for men etc.- all scents that arenīt bad but replaceable and exchangeable!alfarom has given a perfect description.And colonia assoluta remains despite such an effort uncharismatic and dull
