    I like the idea. I wonder how it compares to the original Colonia, and how it performs.

    Would be good if more companies in the beauty sector could come up with ideas like this and put them into practice.

    That said, I too wonder what the smell will actually be like.

    Already tried this. Didn't like it at all. Sephora has it for sale.

    Interesting concept.
    Very clearly a case for corn flakes and classics

    Which store had it to sample? I checked on this at a local Sephora and was told that it was only available online. One of my friends is an ADP fan and made me aware of the release.

    The note profile sounds ok, but there’s no telling how something is going to come together just by the notes. What didn’t you like about it? Lack luster ingredients? Questionable blending?

    I appreciate your time :)

    I sampled it from a business associate who bought it online. I just found it boring, and poorly composed with weak performance.

    Aww damn. I'll still sample it eventually when I get up the nerve to go into a store again, but I won't be holding my breath.

    Sounds like a dud... I trust your nose hednic and if you’re saying it ain’t much, I’m betting I’m going to be of a similar mindset,

    I appreciate your time and response.

    I would suggest you try it if you have a chance and judge for yourself. My taste is often very different than others.

    Idea doesn't seem appeasing. Might be worth trying just once.

    Concept is cool. I'll probably be trying this once everything clears up.

    Understand the recycling bit but it seems like the "removable" part means it will be very easy to swap the juice out. For those of us that like ADP at less than retail/secondhand that's not a good thing......
