Fragrance Review - Davidoff Cool Water Wave

Davidoff Cool Water Wave is a summer 2017 flanker to the original 1988 Cool Water, a fragrance I’ve never actually owned, or even smelled. The marketing for Wave features exciting energetic language and use of words like ‘adrenaline’ and ‘crashing’ to create a feeling of excitement. It’s in stark contrast to the majority of mens fragrances, which are advertised with more of a stoic masculinity.

I picked up this bottle of Cool Water Wave, as well as Paco Rabanne Invictus Aqua, whilst en-route to Miami when I spent an inordinate amount of time trying loads of fragrances to learn about what I liked.

Fragrance Review - Versace Versense

 I bought this whilst on my Heathrow Duty Free fragrance exploration, after picking up my bottle of Atelier Cologne Clementine California. With that being a niche fragrance and a little more expensive, I wanted something similar, but at a lower price point.

Fragrance Review - Ferrari Bright Neroli

I’ve wanted a Neroli fragrance for a while. It’s a scent taken from the bitter orange tree, and rumour has it, that it’s one of the ingredients in Coca-Cola’s secret recipe... and I love Coca-Cola! I also love citrus scents (trying to decide which of the zesty lemon fragrances to get).

I saw that Ferrari’s Bright Neroli was getting lots of positive reviews on YouTube, and whilst I usually disregard brands like Ferrari when it comes to anything other than cars, for the price this is going for, I thought why not.
