Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa

This release by Acqua di Parma is only a few years old and different than its namesake. There is an increased balsamic and aromatic nature to Intensa and I assume that was the point.

Intensa opens with an aromatic rendition of citrus and a hint of ginger. The cardamom is a key player here and the top accord will get your attention in a good way.

Within minutes, the heart makes an entrance with its woodiness compliments of guaiac and cedar. There's a lighthearted mint and herbal accord in there as well that's transparent with the wood bleeding through it. There's a listed neroli note, but I seem to be missing it.

The base of Intensa is a relaxed leathery, earthy musk and remnants of citrus with a volume that is indicative of EDC strength formulas. Another nice release from this house.
