Colonia Mirra by Acqua di Parma
What Does Colonia Mirra Smell Like
Colonia Mirra by Acqua di Parma opens with a clear and sunny citrus note, with the aroma of fresh mandarin orange taking the lead. The tartness of lemon adds a lively edge, while petitgrain adds a slightly woody undertone to the heady citrus mix. As the top notes begin to settle, the scent of myrrh begins to rise. This distinctive fragrance, with its deeply spicy and somewhat sweet profile, becomes the pulsing heart of the perfume. A hint of nutmeg blends seamlessly with the myrrh, adding an extra spice kick without overwhelming the blend. The whisper of orange blossom brings a light floral touch that contrasts beautifully with the heavier spices.
As the perfume evolves, the resinous and balsamic nature of myrrh continues to dominate in the base. The presence of patchouli is subtle, adding a layer of earthiness without being front and center. Despite the heavy reliance on myrrh, the perfume retains a delicate balance between its spicy, sweet, and citrus components. The woody tone of petitgrain reemerges in the dry down, merging perfectly with the resin and spices. Colonia Mirra is a memorable aromatic journey that captures the many facets of myrrh, proving its versatility as a fragrance ingredient.

This fragrance isn't for the faint-hearted, it demands attention and conveys a sense of boldness and self-assurance.
As for longevity, Colonia Mirra holds well, but one might need to reapply it if planning to wear it for an extended period. It's not the type of scent that will fill a room upon entry, but it will surely leave a memorable impression on those who get close enough to appreciate it.
