    Default Most Flankers Award: Davidoff Cool Water

    ***UNSEATED***

    I believe the honor now goes to Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey. Still checking though...

    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/373...ead?highlight=

    I enjoy flankers, and I immediately want to start collecting. But most times, these flankers are mainly another means to generate income by the fragrance house in question. Sometimes though, the flankers are much better versions of the original and as such, quickly gain respect.

    I have been following flankers for quite a while; and while there were a few finalists (Ck One and Joop! are the #2 & 3) for the most flankers, the flanker madness award goes to Davidoff Cool Water, which at last count has 16 flankers! And that is just for men...add women's and the number quickly jumps to over 2 DOZEN! Cool Water's flankers are so bad ass, the flankers have flankers, and those flankers have flankers of their own too. I am wowed...

    Below is a listing of Cool Water and flankers. To my knowledge they all smell different, if I am wrong please let me know since the directory doesn't list all the flankers.

    If I've missed any please let me know.

    WOW.

    I had no idea.

    I'd always assumed CK One would take that crown.

    Just WOW!

    Actually I think Samba by Perfumers Workshop might take the crown with over 20 for men and an equal amount for women.

    The flankers of Coolwater have really gotten out of control and have totally destroyed the reputation of the original...
    Well enjoying what you're wearing is crucial, it is of the utmost importance to wear something that others like as well.

    Not according to recent reviews and (I'm guessing) sales figures.

    Davidoff is milking "Cool Water" as much as Guerlain is milking "Shalimar".

    I had no idea. I only smelled the original "Cool Water" once. Never tried any of the others.

    Cabotine by Gres, the jeans lineup by Versace, Hugo by Hugo Boss, 4711 and Mugler Amen, as well as Angel have a pretty solid number of flankers themselves, but none seems to come close to Cool Water or Samba.

    Wow hednic, you weren't kidding!

    You have just giving me an idea/assignment for 2014.

    I want to create threads that list all flankers of ALL fragrances for men. Ambitious? Perhaps, but it is hard to keep up nowadays because flankers equals effortless cash to most frag houses. I just looked up one of my faves, Cerruti's 1881 only to find that it has 5 flankers (so tempted to collect them all!!!) and I must say Boss bottled's new flanker, Unlimited is good looking too.

    Anyhoo...let the research begin!
