Acqua di Parma Colonia Sandalo Eau de Cologne Concentree Spray

£161.10 - £205.20

Opulence and freshness collide within the Acqua di Parma Colonia Sandalo Eau de Cologne Concentree Spray, a woody-aromatic fragrance inspired by the legendary city of Mysore.

A part of the iconic Acqua di Parma Ingredient Collection, Colonia Sandalo celebrates the magnificent ingredient of sandalwood. This luxurious note is centre stage throughout the composition, contrasting against the classic freshness of the Colonia juice with striking effect. Destined to surprise from the very first spritz, Colonia Sandalo is steeped in the same mesmerising charm as the place that inspired it.

Elegance flows throughout Colonia Sandalo, beginning with the soft citruses that fill the top notes and lead into the aromatic heart of lavender and cardamom. In the base, tonka bean gives the fragrance a woody touch, while the richness of sandalwood and warmth of amber create an intense and sophisticated signature.

Top Notes: Bergamot, Orange, Lemon, Petit Grain

Heart Notes: Lavender, Cardamom

Base Notes: Sandalwood, Tonka Bean, Amber

Shipping Restriction: Only available for UK and European Express delivery services.

Acqua di Parma Colonia Sandalo Eau de Cologne Concentree Spray is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good scent; but is it really sandalwood? I managed to try this new scent at Harrods in London when it was exclusive to them. Now that it is finally available to all, I thought it was time to write a review! I'll begin by saying: it really depends on what you are judging this fragrance by. I gave it a thumb's up on the basis that it is a pleasant, crowd-pleasing scent. Nothing special but nothing offensive either. That said, if my criteria for judging it is whether it is actually a sandalwood scent, it would be a disappointing and overwhelming thumbs down. It's definitely a sandalwood-themed scent, but I don't actually get the raw woody, creamy and slightly smokey vibe from a sandalwood scent, such as the now discontinued Crabtree & Evelyn "Extract of Mysore Sandalwood" scent. You can expect a scent that opens with an atomic explosion of citrus (read bergamot) and mainly lavender. Not unpleasant like some new/recent creations, but this one does appear overwhelming. It's along the same lines of Colonia and Colonia Essenza at first. Once the top notes burn off, there is no rose as per the classic Colonia. There is a huge tonka note (that's also known as "coumarin" and is often listed as part of the ingredients on the box or packaging) in the base with a hint of cardamom before it dries down to a subtle, slightly powdery/woody/tonka base. There are plenty of comparable scents if you like tonka bean: Chanel's Allure Homme Sport range, Chanel Egoiste Platinum and Montblanc Legend all have a similar woody/tonka dry down. Personally think the price is excessive, but for that you do get a nice bottle and different style cap. The box is huge and probably a bit OTT.
