My favorite!
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.

This smells amazing! It was first given to me as a gift from a friend traveling through Italy. It has a fresh scent that smells expensive and worldly! Reminds me of the delightful tingle my nose gets when I smell high end perfume or men’s cologne!

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.

Interesting
Smells a bit like a bar of soap so its definitely a really clean scent. It's not bad but I don't think its one that I would wear on a regular basis. I didn't realize unisex colognes were a thing but I could see how this one could be.

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.

Cary Grant was right
I bought the original Aqua Di Parma from Sak's. (It's more expensive stateside). The original scent was a signature scent of Cary Grant. Its one of my favorites as well and is literally aromatherapy. Wearing it puts me in my happy place.

One of the best yet!
This fragrance is gorgeous yet subtle, citrusy and floral and fresh with a light but lingering pretty drydown. I often have unpleasant drydowns these days, I guess from the chemicals that get used, but this has no artificial smelling anything

Fresh and crisp
Love this scent. Similar to prada Luna Rosa. Very fresh and citrusy. I noticed that most of the negative reviews are from women, I think this scent probably reacts more pleasantly to the chemistry of a man’s skin. That has been my experience with very citrus forward colognes. However, I think it could be suitable for all genders.

This was added to my que for me because I forgot to fill up my que ahead of time. My first impression was bug spray...no thank you! Once I got past the initial smell, I had to look it up to find out if it was a perfume or cologne. I personally wouldn’t recommend this one.

Scentbird is so very disappointing
I enjoyed this scent, however, scentbird has so far been the worst experience of any of my subscriptions. I have only been a subscriber for 4 months and have only received 2 scents. Their customer service is a joke and the free gift they "awarded" me 2 months ago as an apology, surprise surprise, i never received either. They also gave me $14 credit which has since disappeared. They only time i get an actual response other than a generic copy-paste reply is when i write a bad review, so here we are.
