    Default ADP Colonia. Original vs Assoluta

    What do you tink are the main differences between these two? I think Assoluta is a bit more on the feminine side of the scale.I just received my bottle of Colonia (original), and I prefer that one. It must be perfect for hot summer weather. Sillge and stayingpower could be better though.. Has someone tried the Colonia showergel?

    The main difference, IMO, is the white musk in Assoluta. I don't consider Assoluta feminine in the least. Name and Associations aside, i think Colonia and the Assoluta are two different kinds of scent, Colonia being the truer eau de cologne, with its expected short(er) longevity.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    I basically agree with Perfaddict. However, Assoluta's heart develops into overly floral notes which I do not personally care for.

    I too will not resort to characterizing fragrances as "masculine" or "feminine". People should wear what they enjoy, not what others want them to enjoy.

    It is a very different AdP, but I am waiting to sample the often referred to spicier Essenza. Desirable in the Houston Heat? We shall see.

    I think both are great and both are very suitable summer wear

    Don't really care for either but would go with the former.

    I think both are great. I would say that Assoluta is more floral and more feminine, particularly in the drydown.

    I think Assoluta smells better, and it definitely lasts longer.

    I prefer Intensa to either of these. Intensa > Assoluta > Original > Essenza.
