Acqua di Parma Colonia Quercia is a distinctive cologne combining the classic chypre style with bolder scents suggestive of old-growth hardwoods. The top notes begin with an explosion of lemon, pink pepper, and petit grain, the mature scent of bergamot lending a more sophisticated citrus smell. The middle notes are created by the aromatic combination geranium and sweet, woody cedar, with wafts of cardamom lending a grounding but exotic tone. The ending notes are sharp and complex as oakmoss absolute and patchouli combine with tonka bean to form a scent that gives hints of both daring and refinement. Colonia Quercia is perfect for a commanding personality; a compelling man will find it the perfect accompaniment for an evening out.
