Colony 2015
The opening of the modern Colony is perfect for spring and hot summer days. The pineapple, bergamot is refreshing with a bit of citrus.Vetiver rises from the base to give this a slight bitter green edge to counter the fruits. The rose, jasmine and spicy nutmeg enter to combine with the pineapple and a vintage tinge, ever so slight of powder/suede leather to soften things in a comfortable way. The patchouli is well behaved. It kills me to write patchouli for chypre because of the oakmoss regulation but this rendition is well done and produced in France.

This is not a deep faithful rendition of the vintage colony. However, it is lighter, vintage in tone without feeling "old" It has medium depth. I cant really say there is a modern comparison to this. So in that respect, it is different and well done for an "inspired or updated" piece.

I feel this fills the niche where you want to wear a vintage fragrance but perhaps it wears heavy, this is a perfect place for this one, as this does not. Sillage is arms length, but not huge. Lasting is 4-6 hours. I got a good buy on this one and if you do get a deal, a vintage Patou enthusiast, its a good pick up. The nose on this has also made Joy Forever, reformulated the house of Le Galion, Lubin's Korrigan and Epidor so he has some solid experience translating modern vintages.
