Solid Cologne
It’s not like anything I usually wear, which was sort of the point. Good staying power. Mellows after a bit. Light.

This scent is very much for the older crowd. Every time I wear this I only get the attention of a much older crowd.

LOVE
I really love the scent of Colonia by Acqua di Parma. When I first smelled it, I was a bit skeptical that it was going to smell good on my skin but once I sprayed it on me, I loved it! It has orange-ish and woodsy-ish notes that I really love. I took it with me on my family vacation to California and carried it in my purse everywhere to "freshen" up throughout our long days sight seeing and at the Disney Parks. It's a lovely summer scent but because of it's woodsy notes, I think it would be great during the winter and sweater weather months, as well. xo, Rach

Soapy-You're Not Fully Clean Unless You're Zestfully Clean!
Knowing I was taking a HUGE chance with this one, I still tried it. At first I was like wth is this!? I thought I smelled like a dude fresh out of the shower. It literally smells like you're zestfully clean, with a spicy twist lol. By day 2, I actually fell in love with this scent. It changes scent with my body's chemistry and it smells amazing, I feel sexy and fresh all day.

I really enjoyed it and have purchased the 3.4 oz bottle after the trial.
It smells really nice, I enjoyed it so much that I knew that I would be purchasing a full bottle the first time I tried it. As soon as I ran out of the trial portion, I spent the money and got the full 3.4 oz bottle. I would not say I have the palette to tell what aromas were coming through, I can only say that it is absolutely one of my new favorite colognes and finding this scent makes me glad to have joined Scentbird.

Classic Fragrance
This cologne reminds me of a very expensive soap. It doesn't last the longest, nor is it the most bold and daring of scents, but its easy to wear everyday, can work in the evenings, and has a good, dry citrus & floral scent.

Fell short of expectations
I love this brands Oud scent which made me want to try other scents from this brand. This particular scent isn’t bad but falls short of my expectations in regards to performance. Not fond of how the smell varies from the moment you spray it to how it smells 10 minutes later.

Although this is a nice smelling scent, it doesn't long at all. I'm talking maybe an hour if that. I know this is a respected brand but I'm totally disappointed in the performance.

Smells Like A Floral Soap Bar
I was expecting a lot out of this one from the stuff I read about this cologne online but overall it was very meh. Starts off citrusy and kinda fresh but that quickly fades to a start floral punch with soap-like qualities. I was hoping for a clean, fresh and masculine scent but instead got a floral semi-feminine aroma.

Great fragrance, for 10 minutes
The fragrance is wonderful. The first day I sprayed two sprays. I fell in love with the scent. After I finished getting ready I wanted to go show my wife how good the scent was. Too late. You could barely smell it ten minutes after i sprayed it. The next day 4 sprays....maybe 15 minutes of longevity. The next day even more sprays. Nothing helped.

My impression of this scent gets 2 thumbs down 👎🏾 👎🏾! Reminds me of the floral fragrance of a funeral or something that my grandma would wear. I haven’t been brave enough to wear it in public. Going to donate this stuff to Goodwill or better yet, trash it!

Refreshing and old fashioned
Colonia has a distinctly vintage, almost barbershop-ish, flavor (not unlike Vetiver Guerlain). But it softens after application, blossoming into a nice, masculine citrus.

So fresh and so clean!
I loooove this scent! My parents brought back some ACQUA DI PARMA toiletries from a resort when I was a teenager, and I have always loved the clean, fresh scent. I didn't even realize it was a men's perfume. I would love if it had a bit more staying power but still am hooked.

BARF!
This is the most disgusting thing I've ever smelled. I've never smelled gas station incense because I know better, but, for the sake of comparison, imagine the worst gas station incense on Earth, that nasty-dirty-haven't-showered-this-week-smoke-too-much-weed-and-mom-and-dad-are-coming-over hippy smell...and then try to imagine something worse than that. I sprayed this once and quite literally gagged and immediately threw the bottle in the trash. I'm not exaggerating in the least. I consider myself very open-minded when it comes to cologne, I have something for almost every occasion, musky, spicy, sweet, citrusy, fresh, etc. This was undeniably the most atrocious thing I've ever smelled, and if I could give it a negative score I would.

Fresh; but no Bottle for Me.
I don't think this is Juice. But my nose is still developing on this one. I have to sink my neck into it to really feel it, but my heart is telling me it isn't worth it. It smells good, but that's about it. There are a few other things that CVS sells that smell good. But I'm not running to their cabinets for Fragrances. I wore Polo in the green and gold bottle at around 16-17, so I'm accustomed to a spicer fragrance, with that citrus freshness to it, however, I'm not at that point in my life anymore. There's also a geriatric quality to it that I'm not particularly fond of. I'm at a point in my life where I want to smell mysterious, and Acqua Di Parma has no time for playing Where's Waldo. My lady seems to like this fragrance, that seems to have one note, and smells how the bottle looks in a way, like a citrus fruit. I'd have expected a goopier oil-ish viscosity but that wasn't received. This is a Spring/Summer scent for me, and even then, one where you're closer to water so your pores can breathe through it. When this one gets sticky I can tell discomfort awaits all of us. I'm not even sure if it's sample worthy in my opinion based on the fact that the nose that made this lived 100 years ago. I feel like the popularity of this fragrance has kept it's Achilles-esque connotation because big actors wore it, which I understand. But I also understand why a Chanel No. 5 will never die, and why this one may see a foreseeable end to its great run.

This fragrance first gives me vibes of a old school barbershop. Manly and fresh, with a hint of insense. It finished clean and citrusy . If you smelled this on a man, YOU KNOW HE HAS FRESH CLEAN TOWELS AND A GOOD CREIDT SCORE! Over all vibe is if an old Italian man were washing nice fresh lemons in a barbershop in the south of France. It's that kind of vibe . I liked it.!
