    Default Acqua di Parma Note di Colonia - i, ii, & iii

    I was in Neiman's the other day and was surprised to discover they have not just 1 new AdP scent but a whopping 5! In addition to Ebano & Mirra which have their own threads I believe, there's 3 new iterations on the Colonia theme. At first smell, I liked iii the best but all smelled rather good. Obviously, need more time on them to properly assess.

    Anybody tried these yet?

    Thanks for the heads up on the Nieman Marcus availability. Must remember to try these the next time I'm there.Premiere Avenue in France has had the new trio Note di Colonia - I, II, & III for a while now.

    Did you note the prices? They've been out for a while and I recall they were inspired by operas and have ridiculous price tags. Would love to try them though.

    Thank you for the info. It's nice to hear that these are now stateside! Hopefully they make their way to my neck of the woods

    At Premiere Avenue they're $322 US at current exchange for 150ml after VAT is suppressed.

    Smelled these at the Italian showcase in Disney's Epcot last week. I thought they all smelled very nice but wasn't inspired to pay full retail, even with Disney's amazing sales tactics. I'd like to smell them again though and get to know them better. But in the brief time I had with them I thought they were very well done and felt sophisticated/quality. Once I have more time with them I'll give proper feedback.

    You know I'm all for new fragrance releases. But there is something's about ADP that rubs me the wrong way. They made their bones on the simple but wonderful Colonia - arguably their best fragrance - and have been exploding with a rash of $350 fragrances at a frantic pace.

    Maybe it's just me. But I still feel the "humble" Colonia and Assoluta are their best (and cheapest) fragrances. And perhaps they have morphed from humble Italian niche into mass market conglomerate profiteers.

    Maybe I'm just naive. Or maybe just in denial, as I miss my old, humble ADP from long ago.

    Did you smell these three at Nieman Marcus also?

    Only Colonia I've tried is Colonia Club...Almost boring except the mint note saves it. Nice fragrance.
