Acca Kappa Acqua Di Colonia 1869 Cologne Review

First of all, I would like to express my gratitude to AUGUSTMAN Magazine and Acca Kappa for these goodies. Just last December, I posted a picture on my Instagram account and that picture was chosen as the best Instagram photo by AUGUSTMAN Magazine. I got excited when I was notified that I'll be receiving Acca Kappa 1869 Set.

I received 4 different items consist of Acqua Di Colonia 1869 Cologne, 1869 Soap, 1869 Shampoo & Shower Gel and also 1869 Shaving Cream. All of those were packed in a white box that has a tiny leather scent which was refreshing.

Top : Cardamom, Geranium
Heart : Iris, Violet, Leather
Base : Ambergris, Vanilla

The first thing you'll notice after spraying this cologne, it has a mixture of aquatic and classic scents. The first word pops out in my mind is masculine. This cologne is a very strong cologne for a person of my age but don't you worry, the scent later blooms with Iris, Violet and Leather, a good classic combination that still preserve the masculine scent. 

This cologne lasts for about 6-8 hours with a few sprays on your skin and clothes. While I was wearing this cologne, I've received a neutral reaction from most of my friends. Some of them liked it while some don't. One of them told me that it smelled like burnt cigar (probably because of the leather notes). Deeply, this cologne has a very unique scents that I rarely got attracted to.

I'll use this cologne occasionally as this cologne is a very special cologne because this is the first cologne that has a classic scent that I really enjoyed. Most of my colognes revolves around sweet, hot floral with aquatic scent. Overall, I love this cologne.

Again, thank you to AUGUSTMAN Magazine and Acca Kappa for these goodies.
