I sampled this one on the recommendation of my sister in law. Her taste in everything was exquisite, so it was no surprise to me that the Colonia Pura proved to be a thing of beauty. This is my very first review and I am only beginning to learn the language of scent, so here goes - I first noticed the water notes, hence the Acqua, right? I love that clean, open freshness. Those top notes disappeared fairly quickly, leaving behind a warm, clean floral. Kinda green. I’m sorry I can’t be more specific.....a little powdery, but not at all sweet or cloying, just very, very nice. Lasts about 8 hours, though I would describe the sillage as shrinking by the hour - not a bad way to go. A thrill to try this one.
