Thread: Davidoff Hot Water
Davidoff Hot Water arrives as a fiery oriental, masculine fragrance in September 2009 on the market. Top notes feature absynth and red basil, a heart introduces hot accords of pimento and patchouli, while a base encompasses styrax and benzoin. The flacons is very appealing, coloured in dark red.
What do you think people? What are your prognosis?

It's easy to scoff - what if it's very good?
I'm still surprised I really like the new DKNY Men...

Wow! How original hahaa I may like it though but I just think that's really funny
I'm quite curious to see what they name the Hot Water flankers...
Bottle design looks like it contains mouth-water.
"Cool Water" is a name that evokes refreshment and cleanliness.
"Hot Water" is for making tea. Or bathing in LOL.
The scent may be good, but the name is roflcopters.
A lot of sarcasm here. Hot water sounds a bit...well you've all said it, not to mention it's very transparent name . But the scent itself might be really fine!

The first thread about Davidoff Hot Water, I thought it was a joke! I might be interested, only because of what Creed they based it off of this time (OOOH, zing!).

What is red basil?

I almost didn't click on this thread, because I really thought it was a joke. Then I thought I needed a laugh anyway and went ahead. Seems it's not a laughing matter after all!
Looks like Davidoff is in hot water again!
Seriously, though, I'm game. I'll give it a try. I'm not embarrassed to admit I like his stuff.
Red Basil is basil with large, glossy, dark purple-red leaves. They are bushy plants with lavender blue spikes.
I for one, am pumped. It's about damn time we got a firey, masculine oriental rather than a watery, weak aquatic. Sure the name isnt that great but is French Lover? Fat Electrician? Vanille 44? I'd far rather have it named Hot Water than Cool Water 23, I did enough algerbra in college, okay? Names should matter that much. If you best friend was a guy named Nancy, isnt he still your best friend?

So how long before this makes it to the discounters like Marshalls and T.J. Maxx?
It's that benzoin part of the scent I won't like...
Hot Water: 3rd degree burn. Send your date to the nearest ER for treatment due to an oversexed teenager who bathed in product.
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Eh, it might be crap, but the notes sound like something I'm willing to try, and it's created by Domitille Bertier and Olivier Polge, who've done good work. I'll reserve judgment until it's actually released and tested.
