Reviews of Florida Water

There are two versions of this one. The one made in Peru and the one made here. Of the two, I prefer the Peruvian one. It smells more natural and has a deeper more resinous scent. They are both very pleasant and work as room/energy clearing sprays. You can buy the Peruvian one at shaman supply shops online.

This stuff is oddly impressive. The orange/bergamot, clove, and lavender give off an accord similar to ginger and the full effect is like a seafaring pirate's version of potpourri. After a short while the clove takes over, as it often seems to do, but this is a really refreshing and versatile mixture for the price, especially for those who like old-fashioned bay musks and vintage Old Spice.

Winner of the "excellent budget/drugstore fragrance" award -- in a class with Pino Silvestre and Agua de Colonia Concentrada (Alvarez Gomez). Great value and interesting scent.
Citrus. "Fizzy" note. Herbal component of bay leaf/laurel. With spices, it sits near the bay rum category but is not as bold or strong.
Masculine. Not too sweet, a bit perhaps in the initial stages. Hint of rich tobacco leaf. A gentle spice dry-down.
A basic, but also a solid citizen.

I must admit I smelt this stuff for the first time today, at 55! :)
When I was a child, there was a bottle sitting on the bathroom shelf.
A gift from my godmother to the family, and it was never opened. (no idea why!)
A few days ago, I saw a bottle at my local pharmacy.
This stuff is now in a plastic bottle, but the label is exactly the same as in memories.
It was a glass bottle back then.
Bought it today, and finally tried it!
My god, this stuff is way much better than I expected! :)
I was ready for a thin, dry, cheap citrus scent, but this stuff smells quite natural, and is also spicy and has a round sweet base.
I'll probably use it as an after-shave during the summer, along with 4711.
Good!!!

Exotic (vaguely art-deco) bottle (really nice and quite particular) and freshly exotic-spicy the juice itself. Murray&Lanman Florida Water Cologne is a nice refreshing citric-spicy after shower cologne nice to be worn in the sultry climates or along the summer time days in the hot/humid countries. An historical Eau de Cologne in the same vein as 4711 but in this case the aroma tends to become (after the herbal-hesperidic opening) decidedly spicy and vaguely "caribbean" with its bay rum-cinnamon-fresh tobacco (I suppose) accord. The formula is classic, really "white linen clothed gentleman type" and still working for the lovers of genre. Really cheap, I can find it for 5 in several London's street markets.

This cologne is one to be respected. Considering the cost it is certainly good quality and value for money.
To the nose I find it quite mineral with notes of lemon, bergamot and Coca-Cola. The scent reminds me of orange and cola sweets with a hint of fizz and Fireball gobstoppers which sometimes got too hot to hold in the mouth! There's actually a lot going on in this mass-produced budget cologne; I find it very refreshing and uplifting when splashed on the face. The opening is fresh lemon, bergamot and tangerine which turns fizzy then an orangeade and Coca-Cola vibe emerges. It is quite unique and interesting. The closest splash I would compare Florida Water to would be 4711 Eau de Cologne with added fizzy candy. Most definitely a unisex cologne.
