Summary: I rather love this. A light (but not sheer), crisp summer scent with an oily base note that is probably the jasmine and rose; it's that kind of oily feel you get with real flower extracts. Not unlike Novaya Zarya Troinoi in herbal/oil feel, and definitely has it's roots in the same Gentleman's Scent genre (this was used to scent gentleman's handkerchiefs, apparently.
Summary: you've got to love a product that's been around since 1916 ;-) a true unisex classic - it really is lovely on men and women. although it is refreshingly citrus, for me it has the strength, spiciness and warmth to be worn all year round ... but i do live in australia where the sun is never too far away ;-) a fragrance for when you want something special and unusual, but not too edgy (yes serge lutens, i'm looking at you) :D

Summary: Notes: Sicilian citrus, lavender, rosemary, verbena, Bulgarian rose, sandalwood, vetiver, cedar and ylang-ylang. This fragrance opens with a a lively blend of citrus and herbal notes. At first rich lemon dominates the accord, but gradually gives way to lavender and rosemary. The lemon note now adds translucence to the conservative herbal composition, but there are moments the scent smells rather stuffy on my skin.
Summary: YAY i found the scent i have been searching for! this is crisp, clean and timeless. it smells like luxurious lemon soap on me. at first the initial spray is SHARP and quite manly.. but i gave this time, and it developed into a very soft beautiful scent. it wears very close to my skin, and is not obnoxious or heavy. i want this to be my signature scent- i love it!
Summary: Lovely! Starts out as a clean and delightful citrus - somewhat more like sugared lemon cookies than like fresh citrus, and definitely nothing like Pledge. Middle notes are a warm and powdery floral based on roses and iris. Even if you consider yourself a powder hater, this may change your mind. I was sure I hated iris notes until I smelled this. This ultimately dries down to a very subtle sweet soap smell, which I was also sure I hated until I met this fragrance.
Summary: What a lovely cologne! A great classic, and something you definitely have to wear/try at a certain stage of your life, or in a certain season (for me it's spring/summer). Don't be fooled by the initial blast so similar to the 4711 cologne. AdP Colonia is a more complex fragrance! The fresh cirtus part is rich: not only lemon, but LOADS of Bergamot & cedar, some grapefruit and little orange peel. Citrus verbena is also there.
Summary: I should never review scents the day I buy them as I have the attention span of a gnat, I'm sure by the time I'm halfway through this bottle it will be on the back of a top dusty shelf, completely forgotten. But I just bought Acqua Di Parma today and I'm completely in love with it. I feel so European!
