    Default Your favourite eau de cologne frag

    Hi guys,
    I tried AdP Colonia, Intensa and Assoluta last week and kind of got interested in other EdC scents. Like 4711, Roger & Gallette Extra Vieille. I would like to try more of the same. What are your favourite OdC scents?
    Thanks,
    Alex

    Chanel Cologne (from the Exclusifs collection) is very nice also.

    There are several threads on this with good suggestions.
    My favorites:

    C&S Neroli (for practical purposes an EdC,despite higher oil concentration) - an excellent no-nonsense neroli for men.

    AdP Colonia - classic, wonderful citrus-floral

    Farina Gegenüber - the original, hesperidic sharp, fresh, but lightyears from 4711.

    R&G Extra Vieille - best value for money, a great EdC

    Guerlain - Impériale, du Coq, Fleurs de Cedrat, Eau du Guerlain are all excellent

    Creed Bois de Cedrat - perfect citrus

    Berdoues No. 444 Extra Vieille - little known, discontinued, worth finding.

    Asprey Purple Water - a little modernized, unisex citrus-floral

    Dukes of Pall Mall - the best British style citrus-white floral, discontinued & extremely rare

    Trumper's West Indian Limes - the most authentic lime, beautiful, but very short-lived.

    also worth trying:

    CdG Vettiveru - an interesting take on vetiver

    Myrurgia 1916 - nice citrus-herbal cologne

    Eau de Patou - cream citrus-floral

    Creed Selection Verte - best summer frag ever, citrus-mint heaven

    R&G Cologne - a modern orange cologne by D. Ropion

    Penhaligon's Castile - neroli plus rose, very smooth and comfortable

    Monsieur Balmain, superb lemon, another great value for money frag

    de Nicolai Cologne Sologne - a soft neroli EdC

    de Nicolai Balle de Match - terrific grapefruit

    Are we talking about traditional Eau de Cologne recipes, or something that has an EDC concentration? I assume it's the first...so my fav's:

    -Eau du Coq by Guerlain
    -Eau de Cologne by Chanel

    Although I haven't tried them yet, the Institut Tres Bien colognes are supposed to be fabulous.

    My one is AdP Colonia Assoluta - perhaps just because I don't know the original Colonia
    I've just reapplied it generously, in the extreme hungarian afternoon heat, and it's so refreshing...

    Exactly! I got to try it last week in Barcelona and now have a 4 ml sample. I was rather 'wowed' by it.

    Hermes eau d'Orange Verte I'm sure was just overlooked by the_good_life... he rated it excellent last time.

    Fredric Malle Cologne Bigarade is very well done also.

    Hot weather is made for wearing cologne.

    and there are some 5 star — great threads from the past discussions of colognes — well worth searching for.

    T_G_L is always so fast on the sprayer on these threads that I am left filling in the ones he forgot. Except fredricktoo did that. So I really have nothing to say. Except Creed Citrus Bigarrade which has chypre tendencies, so isn't really a cologne. My two favourites are Guerlain Imperiale and R&G Extra Vieille.

    I will add:

    1. Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa (Doesn't last too long on my skin, so I keep a mini at work and reapply a drop or two as needed.)

    2. Caswell Massey Sandalwood. A very nice, one-note (per their website) sandalwood that lasts a looooong time on my skin. Longer than many of my edt's.
    Snarky is as snarky does.

    Thank you for narrowing down to the best two. No need to look further.
