    Default How Many Cool Water Flankers Have You Tried?

    I find this brand to have the most flankers that are rarely, if ever talked about. Frozen & Game get mentioned here and there, but that's about it. I find the flankers very hard to find in stores, I never see them in the department stores, not that I would buy any at the full retail price, but it would be nice to smell them.

    So I am wondering, how many of the flankers have you smelled or tried? Which do you like the most? And where do you even find them? (without blind buying online)

    Frozen is the best one I've tried. It's kind of pricey, but one I just purchased is Samba Ice. Has a Cool Water vibe and it's great for the summer. Like it better than Frozen.

    I own Cool Water 'Summer Dive' (2011) as I could get a 125ml for Ä10 only.
    It has a real fresh opening and heart phase with lots of mint and citrus added compared to normal Cool Water. After the heart phase, the drydown is about the same as normal Cool Water but overall less silage/longevity. Only for hot weather or to be layered/blended with the original!
    My Top '10' : (In no particular order)

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Loewe: Esencia/Pour Homme/Solo/7
    - YSL: Opium Pour Homme Edp
    - Dior: Eau Sauvage Parfum
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Guerlain: Vetiver
    - Van Cleef & Arpels: Pour Homme
    - Hermes: Terre d'Hermes
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraicheur)

    Good observation, OP. And to answer the question, no, I don't remember trying any CW flankers before but I hope to see one soon.

    I own frozen. It is really hard to distinguish it from just normal cool water. A bit more citrus I guess, but really, it is hard to tell the difference.

    most of the cool water flankers seem discontinued, so for most of them there is no other option but to blind buy. Most of them are also really cheap however, so that helps. Ebay of course is the best place to find them.

    I tried Summer Dive, liked the supposed-grapefruit edition. It's the only CW I've bothered to own. Did last quite well though, I used it all up in one summer

    I have 2006's Summer Fizz and like it far more than regular CW. It has a fizzy effervescent citrus opening with a touch of almost powdery suede added to Cool Water's mossy base. The longevity is shorter than the original, but the overall smell is very interesting and much better than CW. Something about the fizzy/mossy vibe of this one makes me think of rainy days for some reason, and that's when I enjoy wearing it. I found mine at TJ Maxx about 2 years ago for $16.

    As an aside, the base of CW Summer Fizz with the citrus and suede kind of reminds me of Varvatos Artisan Black, if you've ever smelled that one.

    Summer Fizz, Frozen, Freeze Me, Deep, Game, Summer Dive & Sea, Scents & Sun. My least favourite would be Cool Water Deep (very, very weak & smells like pine disenfectant) and my favourite would be Sea, Scents and Sun (has a very nicely done salty componant).

    1. Game. Didn't keep it, or the original CW.

    None so far. In fact, it's even somewhat hard for me to "keep track" of this fragrance's flankers released.
