Can anyone comment on the different AdP balms currently available; scents, favored ones, etc?
They have several available it seems; Collezione Barbiere, Colonia, Colonia Essenza, Colonia Assoluta, Colonia Intensa.
Thanks.

I've only tried the Collezione Barbiere. Very nice scent, matches the currently available cream.

Thanks, Nathan.

These are lightly scented?

Most website descriptions say 'unscented'.

Definitely not UNscented, but yes, I would describe it as a lighter scent, and one that doesn't stay around all that long.

hey ravi, i have used the AdP colonia balm, the scent is pretty strong, medium to heavy strength and the balm didnt really hit me as anything special. great packaging and glass bottle, not really watery but not really on the lotion side either. wasnt bad, but wasnt what i was expecting @ that price point.

I have:
-Collezione Barbiere (new) crema viso rivitalizzante... definitely a lighter scent but not unscented
-Colonia Essenza balsamo dopobarba
-Colonia Essenza emulsione viso
The latter 2 are definitely medium/high scent, and excellent. I got the dopobarba in the Holiday Gift Set with the EdT and shower gel.
The best of the 3 is the emulsione viso, IMO.

I am a big fan of the Colonia Intensa version…starts off mild citrusy and matures into a very nice woody dry down…for some reason the essence did not do it for me.

I own the entire Acqua Di Parma fragrance range. Newest addition being the fantastic Colonia Leather and Colonia Intensa Oud. Closest to the old croap scent wise is Colonia Original, Colonia Assoluta and Colonia Essenza. I own 12 ADP frags in fact :-)

Not the most by a company in my frag collection, but close.
Own 13 Creed and 17 Bond no. 9 and 15 Dior :-)

Ravi, 

I don't know much about the other scents but here is what I do know...

Old Colonia Collezione Barbiere Balm = Scented
New Collezione Barbiere Balm = Unscented (lightly scented)
New Colonia Balm = Same formula as Old Colonia Collezione Barbiere = Scented

While we're on the topic:
New Colonia Tonic = Same formula as old Colonia Collezione Barbiere Lotion/splash = Scented

Thanks, gentlemen.

I'm debating between the new Collezione Barbiere balm (lightly scented) and one of the stronger scented balms .. decisions, decisions .. Smile

In my opinion what makes AdP so great are the scents. So the fact there their new Collezione Barbiere has no scent really bothers me. Especially since their performance is average.
