    Cologne Sologne by Nicolaï

    This may be my favorite eau de cologne. Stronger than 4711, less salty than Jean Marie Farina (which also ranks high), and less floral than another favorite, Richard James Cologne. It could also stand in as a Gendarme-type soapy scent. It opens similarly to 4711 with a very brisk lemon (seems like both peels and flowers), lavender and rosemary. It has just a bit of the creamy spiciness of the lemon in Allure Edition Blanche, and gets more sour over time until the citrus blossoms finally return far into the base. Most importantly, though, it stays stronger for longer than most others in this family, and takes longer to progress. The only drawback is that it has a bit of a Mugler Cologne-like slimy soap residue aura far into the drydown, but it's not much.
