I was hesitant to purchase a cologne with out smelling it first but to my surprise I like it. I definitely would recommend this cologne.
Acqua Di Parma colonia sounds very expensive, but the natural essences that they use exclusively last much longer and are more intense than synthetics, this means stronger, longer lasting scent. I use Acqua Di Parma products exclusively as my grandfather did. He was in Italy during WWII and discovered this cologne. It is exactly the same today as it was then.
Love putting this on when the weather is hot and the body sweats. This stuff really overpowers odor and gives you a fresh smell all day long. Have been using one bottle for a while now too!
