Not my style
This was an odd scent: smelled too sweet, too chemical-ly, too bug spray-ish. At least on my body.

Acqua di Parma Colonia Pura- Crisp, clean, relaxing
Nice very clean and calming scent. Not feminine, but a little unisex (I'm a guy). Good overall, better performance than most Acqua di Parmas. The Jasmine Sambac note is great. I would say this is an all season "freshie". If you like Prada L'Homme, or the Acqua di Parma line, you would probably like this. Also, lasts much better on clothes than skin. Surprising longevity on clothes. Check it out!

ADP Colonia Pura, A great effort, but not for me.
Honestly, I really enjoyed Colonia Pura's scent porfolio. It envoked in me something refind and old, fresh, Spring or Summery, Vintage Glamour.BUT....Unfortunately after trying it out for a week the scent bombed out with my body chemistry! Something in the formula hits my skin wrong every time roughly after 45min to an hour and it leaves a close in wake that lingers and is overpowering, I had to wash it off. I didn't spray on that much either. It's a shame because I do believe it's a quality product and as I said I enjoy the initial scent. I will try another Acqua di Parma fragrance to see if it's just Pura, or the whole line doesn't work on me. Give it a shot though. Just because it didn't work for me doesn't mean it won't be just the fragrance you're looking for.

I love this one. Fresh, but not TOO fresh, if you know what I mean. It's more interesting than your standard citrus to floral. There's a lovely soft iris in the dry down.

Great Scent. Wish It Lasted Longer
I was a little skeptical when I first smelled this one. It smelled really citrusy, but it smells amazing on the skin. This is eau de cologne, so you'll need to reapply after a few hours, but it's really good. Smells more clean that citrusy. I'll be buying a big bottle of this one.

Great Unisex Frag to share with my Hubs.....
Colonia Pura is marketed for men, but I never pay attention to gender marketing when it comes to fragrance! :) I think this is a wonderful scent for summer, and I will definitely be enjoying it when hot weather comes back around. This smells awesome on my hubby too; and it's the type of cologne that he likes in hot weather as well. One star off for the full bottle price point; I wouldn't pay full price for a bottle because the duration is just a couple of hours on skin. We will thoroughly enjoy this sample and definitely snap up a bottle if we find a good sale!

Not for me
This is shown as a men’s fragrance, but it’s not overly masculine (nor is it really feminine). This could almost be a unisex scent, it’s just not one that I enjoy. Almost like Acqua di Gio with patchouli.

It's nice
I guess maybe my hopes were a bit too high on this one. Don't get me wrong. it's pleasant enough and bright and citrusy upfront but it's not particularly distinctive in any way. It just reminds me of so many other scents. Not bad, just meh.

The most cologny cologne.
Mixed citruses with a sharp ozonic and aquatic accord wrapped over a woodsy base. Meh. It reminds me of a slightly classier version of Axe...or maybe a high-falooting body wash that makes you smell like an old man. Pass.

A great unisex cologne, fresh and citrusy.
I tend to prefer fragrances that are fresh, floral, or woodsy, often ones that fall between being associated with a specific gender. This is the one! It's subtle without disappearing throughout the day. Absolutely gives me the boost I need! Definitely making a note to add this one to the to-buy list.
