Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza

Product information

Colonia Essenza from Acqua di Parma reinterprets the values and essence of Colonia, their cult cologne created in 1916. Using the finest quality ingredients Acqua di Parma have created a citrus, woody fragrance with an assertive personality.

The aromatic top notes of classical Italian citrus and rosemary are intertwined with a delicate floral combination of rose, jasmine and lily of the valley. A touch of subtle spicy clove adds a warmth which carries through to a rich, woody base with notes of intense patchouli, soft white moss and warm amber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely aftershave Got a really nice smell which doesn't seem to fade 07 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pricey but very distinctive This cologne is expensive ,hence the four stars, but the smell is amazing. It is very distinctive and when worn people will comment on how lovely it is. A signature scent that is expensive but once tried, it is hard to go back to anything else. 07 January 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Not just for men! I'm a girl and love this cologne. It is a unisex perfume. I've been using this myself for the past two years and think it is gorgeous. If you like spicy, woody perfumes then this is perfect. A really nice sophisticated scent that is not sweet. 24 November 2014
