Colonia Assoluta Edizione Riviera by Acqua di Parma

It is incredibly, opressively hot here right now and so Acqua di Parma's limited edition for this summer, called Colonia Assoluta Edizione Riviera, meant to "capture the joie de vivre" of the Riviera coastline sounds incredibly appealing.
Opening with a splash of citrus, this effervescent mix gives way to rose, jasmine and ylang-ylang. Warm, vibrant cardmom and red pepper add a sense of sophistication and give the scent its underlying intensity. At its heart are refined blonde woods that echo the enduring elegance of Colonia Assoluta. White musk and amber help to create a chic and lasting impression.

True to the heritage of Acqua di Parma, signature silver and Parma yellow packaging is emblazoned with Parma 's royal coat of arms. A classic vaporizer in vivid Parma yellow may be added to the bottle, increasing the scent's timeless appeal.
Colonia Assoluta Edizione Riviera is available now for the summer months at Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, CO Bigelow and Neiman Marcus for $143.

I was just in a NM today, and was told that the formulation of this "summer-limited" was exactly the same as the original Assoluta - was this information incorrect?

It smelled more floral to me, but I might be mistaken.

I'll let you know, as I just ordered the bottle. As usual, the AdP "official" website makes no mention of this product (nor even the new Intensa, which I received a sample sprayer of).
