Tried it once, I must say I prefer both the Colonia and the Colonia Essenza.

I bought, and returned, this scent. I like citrus notes, of which this has initially, but as it dries down it evolves into a confused scent that gave me a headache. I know Teiste caught some powdery notes but the dry down for me was less powdery and more "chemical" and woodsy smelling. To my nose the original AdP scent has a far greater powdery note (which I also don't care for) than this one, but this one has a greater wood note than the original.

I hope that made sense, but if not, PM me and I'll try and elaborate better.

Thank-you, I'll consider the Colonia instead.

Thank-you Teiste, I'm not a fan of powdery either.

Thank-you Oscar, you made perfect sense. Headaches are something I wish to avoid!

Thanks, I've decided to give it a miss!

Thank-you all for your input.

I own it in 100 ml version and find it's a great take on a citrus oud scent.

For people that would like to venture into oud territory, but without risking to smell the real hard and harsh oud frags.

I own the entire Acqua di Parma Colonia line and this is the best from the line IMHO.
Also own 5 from the blue line......

Longevity on my skin is excellent with this: 10-12 hours.
