    Default acqua di Parma assoluta

    I have just tried my new bottle of ADP Assoluta and it is true, you do smell like grandparents. I have tried it a couple of times now and still think I smell my old grandmother. This has now put me off the ADP Colonia (original). Any thoughts and/or suggestions on clean, fresh colognes for men.

    HAHA....Like i said, Assoluta smells like grandparents. But the original AdP Colonia is GREAT! don't be put off, at least try it out at a store first, it is alot more of a lemony fresh scent. the stuff ROCKS!

    I just don't get this assocation at all. I find Colonia Assoluta to be a great scent, complex, a little dark and mysterious, and obviously of very high quality. If it's "fresh" that you're after then you are right; Assoluta does not fit that bill. If you want summery fresh, but classy, try Agua Lavanda from Puig. This is a great and classic scent for summertime.

    I absolutely adore this fragarance! No old people asscociations for me either! Besides, al lot of great classics were released back then, so actually that would be a good thing! [smiley=wink.gif]
