Classic and refined
Amazing citrus scent from AdP. It evokes a classic gentleman scent and whisks you away to the Italian coast. Great for either day time or nighttime. Really enjoyed this and one of my favorite, if not top choice for AdP colognes.

Essential Essenza
A nice offering from AdP. Soapy, Fresh, Gentleman's scent. Probably best for a gentleman 30+ years. Longevity and projection are average at best, but most AdP fragrances I've tired have similar longevity and projection so not bad for the house.

Absolutely the best !!
This cologne is the absolute best ever. It has a sweet and masculine smell. It’s soft yet pleasing. I’ve received only but amazing compliments. I will purchase the actual one. This deserves 10 stars , actually.

Irish Spring-like
Nice clean and fresh scent... It really does smell like a more elegant version of Irish Spring soap.

Oh no!
I did not like this scent at all. If you are trying to smell like your grandfather, then by all means get this scent.

Not for me
Smelled like I remember my grandmother and grandfather's perfumes and colognes smelling. To me, the scent smells very dated--but too intense. And the top notes were way too strong to me. It was like an explosion I wasn't expecting from a scent that seems like it could be trying to compensate for something, kind of like a grocery store cologne does. I'm actually just going to sell this in a garage sale soon. This one wasn't for me.

This one is a hit. Very nice fragrance. One that is good to sport anywhere. A safe scent that is striking. I’m glad to have found and put this one into my collection. Best Acqua di Parma I’ve found so far. Would like to try their Colonia Oud!

False representation
Ordered Eau de Parfum (as advertised), but received Eau de Cologne instead. I am Disappointed.

Resembles Irish Spring soap
It reminds me of Irish spring soap bar. It does not have the luxurious vibe which I was expecting due to the hype in the fragrance community. The biggest con is the longevity which is around 2-3 hours. Moreover, it is Eau de Cologne and not Eau de Parfum as mentioned here.
