    Default New Fragrance: Acqua di Parma - Colonia Intensa Oud Eau de Cologne Concentrée

    The Oud quest continues and I've got to be honest I didn't see this one coming! (or the longest name for a fragrance ever conceived)

    An exclusive and elegant fragrance born from the authentic union of the vibrant and enveloping notes of Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa with Oud oil, an extremely rare oil extracted from agarwood, a precious resin of the aquilaria tree.

    Colonia Intensa Oud Concentrée opens with a citrus aroma before revealing its extraordinary personality of a heart full of precious ingredients such as agarwood, Russian coriander and Haitian amyris wood. This structured blend evolves into musk and leather. A new interpretation is born - Eau de Cologne Concentrée.

    Its now available from Harrods in a 100ml bottle and currently retails for twice the price of the usual Intensa.

    •Top notes: citrus
    •Middle notes: agarwood, Russian coriander and Haitian amyris wood
    •Base notes: musk and leather

    Hahaha, sounds like the people at AdP read some basenotes threads about fictional and hilarious fragrance names. Really, this oud-brought-into-line is so ridiculous.

    Interesting that Acqua Di Parma have jumped on the Oud bandwagon as they make excellent high quality fragrances.

    Wow. Never expected this. Will be interested to see their take on oud, and heavier scents in general.

    Acqau di Parma since 1906 is the Italy´s Anthem....
    They used to make very good fragances.
    Acqua di Parma Colonia and Essenza were the best IMHO so far .
    Now, Louis Vuitton Moet Henessy took over the original Co.
    Dear friends wait for :
    " Acqua di Parma Extrait of Pure Amber " or anything similar....( sic and joke ).
    Money ....Money...Money.......!!!!!

    £130? Better be good. I'll try and pop down to Harrods tomorrow and see whether it's public yet.

    Can anyone explain what an "eau de cologne concentrée" actually is?? Isn't it just an EdT? Or is it an EdP dressed up so male customers wont be terrified by the dreaded word "Parfum"?

    An Oud Eau de Cologne?

    Eau de Cologne Concentrée?

    Marketing BS.
    I would never give my money to these idiots.

    Also, what oud has to do with classic italian colognes?
    Youre missing the context Acqua di Parma.
    And my respect too.
    Nowadays EVERY brand has to have an Oud fragrance, specially in its name...

    Exactly...what has this to do with Italian colognes? Gimmick? My respect for Acqua Di Parma has gone from a while. If'd you lived in Italy, your would have probably gone too

    for me, italian means herbs, conifers and citrus. they should invest on what the image they have, instead of ruining it with "expansion"

    Oh boy. Not another Eau de Cologne Extrait.

    Who cares about ooud... (yawn) Russian Coriander, this is new though. Exceedingly rare and precious, grown by collective farms in Siberia. This is gotta be good.

    I felt this was approaching what with all the promotion AdP is doing in Dubai.
    I actually like the idea.

    Sure its not typically Italian nor does it fall consistent with the image of AdP but who cares?
    We live in a global state of mind.
    Porsche came out with a Cayenne, a 4x4 and its the most successful vehicle in their line up.

    Variety is the spice oud of life.
