Acqua di Parma has been around for a long long time now. They have a range of scents that bring forth the smells of the Mediterranean, particularly citrus notes from this region.

In this post, I want to share the Top 10 Best Acqua di Pharma Colognes and Perfumes for Men Reviews in 2021 that I consider being the best of its collection. Now, I have included some unisex entries on the list, as Acqua di Parma has plenty of those and they do indeed rank among the best of Acqua di Parma Brand.

1. Acqua di Parma Colonia Leather

Next up is a rather unique perfume that features a lustrous and deep leather accord. Many fans of Acqua di Parma Colonia leather praise the scent for its genuine leather smell, which other perfumes easily get wrong. It’s definitely a leader for the best scent in the Acqua di Parma collection.

Performance on this cologne is well, a couple of sprays will last you throughout the day into the evening. Undeniably masculine, this cologne is more suited to the older, refined gentleman, perfect for use in the cigar bar and a Whiskey.

Acqua di Parma Colonia leather is an excellent alternative to the pricier Tom Ford Tuscan Leather, so if you’re looking for a great combination between price and performance, Colonia leather is a solid choice.

Main Accords

  • Leather
  • Citrus
  • Woody

Colonia Essenza is a fresher take on the original Colonia fragrance which adds, amongst other things, it has more longevity. Featuring notes of bergamot, grapefruit, mandarin, lemon, orange, to give the incredible citrus opening, Colonia Essenza settles down with base notes of white musk, vetiver, and amber.

Colonia Essenza is incredibly stylish, refined, and perfect for the modern businessman, making it an ideal office cologne.  Longevity could be better, but its subtleness makes it a popular choice for a lot of occasions. We definitely think you’ll get lots of compliments wearing this!

4. Acqua di Parma Colonia Oud

Acqua di Parma Colonia Oud is its first oud-based colognes launched in 2012. If you’re familiar with Acqua di Parma aroma, you’ll know that most are structured around citrus accords, and this scent has no difference.  However, one of the unique things about this fragrance is the pairing of oud and citrus, which is quite unlike anything on the market.

Many people complain about its power, which is definitely on the weaker side.  If you prefer something strong, you may find this fragrance challenging to work with that. We think Acqua di Parma Colonia Oud works fantastically well on a lot of occasions, as it is incredibly versatile.  Whether you’re looking for something to wear on casual nights out or to work, Colonia Oud is a great choice.

The base note of oud really lends this cologne to winter/fall use, but it could be used in the summer if used in the right quantities.

Main Accords

  • Citrus
  • Oud
  • Woody

5. Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Arancia Di Capri

Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Arancia Di Capri is a nod to the Mediterranean island of Capri. Its inspiration really shines through to give a summer, a wonderfully pleasant cologne that reminds us of the cool summer air blowing over the calm blue sea.

The interesting thing about Blu Mediterraneo Arancia Di Capri contains a base note of caramel, a delicious addition as this dries down on the skin. But it is A fresh cologne featuring citrus accords. The citrus itself provides a beautiful effervescent fizz that reminds us of summer cocktails glass.

We think this cologne is a perfect travel fragrance, so buy a small decanter or bottle and take this with you wherever you go. Obviously more suited to the summer given its citrusy and fresh appeal.

Main Accords

  • Aromatic
  • Citrus
  • Fresh Spicy

6. Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Mandorlo Di Sicilia

Blu Mediterraneo Mandorlo Di Sicilia takes inspiration from another Mediterranean island, this time Sicily. If you’re unfamiliar with Sicily, it’s a truly unique combination of art and culture, most famous for its use of almond, which is incorporated in the notes of Blu Mediterraneo Mandorlo Di Sicilia.

We would describe this cologne as floral, but vanilla, musk, and almond work together to create almost a candy scent. You definitely won’t go unnoticed wearing this, as even strangers will stop you in passing to ask what you are wearing. The indulgent base of vetiver and vanilla makes this a perfect fragrance for a date night.  You can thank us later.

In case you haven’t yet spotted the theme, the Blu Mediterraneo collection from Acqua di Parma draws its inspiration from Mediterranean islands. Mirto Di Panarea opens with citrus notes of bergamot and lemon before settling into an intoxicating base featuring cedarwood, juniper,  and amber.

K-pop fans can recognize this fragrance as it was recently fronted by Chanyeol from K-pop group EXO. But this is definitely not a teenage fragrance.

8. Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa

Colonia Intensa features notes of Sicilian Lemon, Calabrian Bergamot to give the famous Acqua di Parma citrus opening. Cardamom, Spicy, and ginger feature in the mid before settling down into a base of neroli, cedarwood, leather, and musk.

The cologne is a pleasant combination of musk and citrus accords, with just a hint of spice that is not too overwhelming, but more on the gentle side. Definitely not as intense as the name implies.

Main Accords

  • Citrus
  • Warm Spicy
  • Aromatic

9. Acqua di Parma Colonia Quercia

Colonia Quercia opens with a wonderful city burst, featuring lemon and bergamot, two notes that are now synonymous with Acqua di Parma colognes. In the dry down, Colonia Quercia pairs patchouli, tonka bean, and oakmoss which you may think would create a woody and earthy cologne, but instead, we find it much sweeter. Colonia Quercia performs pretty solidly, with a longevity is around 8-10 hours

A more subtle woody fragrance, Colonia Quercia is a crowd-pleaser, and so it definitely won’t offend those with a sensitive nose. Colonia Quercia is a fantastic autumnal fragrance, wear this simply for relaxing at home on a cooler evening or for leisurely walks through the forest

Main Accords
