Summary: Aqua di Parma is not an easy cologne to find this side of the Atlantic, let alone the small travel bottles for your leather carry case that is the perfect size to bringing on board the airplane in your carry on! Fast delivery, the product proved authentic.
Summary: EXCELLENT light fragrance which last ALL DAY. Remember, everyone's body chemistry is unique, so this fragrance will smell differently on me than it does on you. I first purchased this fragrance 10 years ago on a British Airways flight on a whim, and have worn it pretty much ever since.
Summary: When I smelled this the first time I thought "this smells like an older scent" but I didn't know it was from 1916! I really got the citrus at first, then it died down to an herbal scent fairly fast. Does not last long though, four hours on me.
Summary: Great summer after shave. It's a citrus EDC so the longevity is not the greatest. The Verbena-- or if you pay full price at a retailer, Vervain-- opening might feel strange to those who are used to Lemon Blasts as the citric norm. I like it. The combination of heart and base is well done.
Summary: I must say this fragrance is truly wonderful. I agree with Luca Turin that is has an Edwardian flair (since it was introduced shortly after he left the throne). AdP opens with a sparkling, elegant lemon tempered with lavender and a bouquet of Herbs du Provence like rosemary, thyme, and basil.
Summary: Like everyone has already said, this is a very excellent fragrance. I am in love with all of the notes it's composed of and try to hold onto their memory as they fade away in far too little time. I really really wish they made an EdT or parfum version of this so it would last longer. But oh well.
Summary: Sublime, feather light masculine scent of the retro connoisseur that utilizes discrete, powdery florals and bright, succulent citrus notes to achieve low profile opulence and 19th century styled freshness.
Summary: Not the best Eau de Cologne on the market, but it's hard to say a bad word about it. Been around for ages and appears to have been kept intact. Classical EdC structure: citrus on top, herbs and florals in the middle & light musk/wood on the bottom.
Summary: Extremely classic Eau De Cologne. Perfect, masterfully executed, incredibly natural and familiar....maybe too much. I honestly can't disencourage anybody to try this one but be aware that this is a "no-surprise" citrusy-soapy Eau De Cologne, that's it.
Summary: Shame on me... This scent has been around since 1916 and I just tried it for the first time a week ago! The opening invigorating top notes are probably the best I have smelled in a scent. A very classy orange and lemon blend with just a hint of herbs that is just heavenly.
