Acqua di Parma Colonia....

Unfortunately, that's the biggest problem with citrus based frags Rob. If you want something that really lasts, then I'd suggest Acqua Viva by Profumum Roma. It has around 43% oil concentration I think, & lasts all friggin day. I sampled it a few years ago & it's a great frag, but pricey.

Other than that, have a look through Basenotes & Fragrantica to see if others have posted similar threads.
Thanks Ross. Just checked the price, ouch!:eek::p

I've been wearing it for nearly two hours. It started off very citrusy but has dried down to something quite different. I can’t pick it apart, it’s way too complex for my amateur nose. I’m not even going try to guess what it is. Can you put me out of my misery Steve? I like it BTW.
Is it herbal?

My guess, having an idea about Steve's collection, is either Xerjoff Nio or Xerjoff Renaissance. The latter is more herbaceous, cheaper than the former and an absolute powerhouse.

Sorry both. Bloody work getting in the way! The citrus was only for the first 5-10 minutes or so then it changed completely. After the first two hours I’d class it as masculine, now it’s gone the other way and floral. I don’t think I’ve worn a fragrance which has changed so much. A class act.

It sure is a good'un! I can see SJ's view of it being 'close' to AdP Colonia in feel but with nuclear performance. First time I wore it I put on about 5/6 sprays and comfortably projected all morning, afternoon, evening and night.
