Reviews of Hungary Water

I bought it 20 years ago. Rosemary and citrusy notes à go-go. A classic eau de cologne, very sharp and bitter, something similar to a mild version of Penhaligon's Blenheim bouquet. Not a masterpiece, but pleasant, after all.

I had a bottle of this stuff about 15 years ago. It's nothing to write home about. It just smells like rosemary and lime mixed with water. Totally weak and fleeting, and that's after anointing yourself with this. I know it's only and EDC, and that it's meant to splash on, but considering that this has been discontinued for a while now, I would expect old bottles to command big prices on eBay.

It doesn't smell bad, but don't waste your money. Do you really want to pay $60 for a scent that lasts only an hour and falls apart after 20 minutes?

Based on a 1370 scent that was a gift to Queen Elizabeth of Hungary, and the first named scent with alcohol. Suspiciously like a Ricola cough drop, but in a good way. I hope they bring it back.

A simple but old fashioned toilet water, very much in the same vein as others (many of the same name) before it. Think Eau Imperiale with more rosemary and less verbena and you pretty much have it nailed. (The bottle WAS way cool, though.)

Rosemary and more rosemary. I had this in a very cool bottle with a cork stopper.
