Review: Cool Water for Women by Davidoff [Guest Post by Akshay]

Cool Water for Women, launched by Davidoff in 1997, is one of the most popular women’s fragrances in India, although it has not achieved the same success as its “pour homme” (for men) counterpart, which has a very wide acceptance throughout the world.

Cool Water (pour femme) is a very typical modern day fragrance. Like many women’s fragrances launched in the past decade, it is a light fresh floral-fruity fragrance.

It opens with a top note of bergamot, lemon, mandarin and mint. In its heart lies a combination of many flowers like lavender, rose, jasmine, geranium, orris, cyclamen and lily of the valley. Its dry out (base note) is made of musk, sandal, amber and Tonka. (Tonka is a species very closely related to vanilla.)

This perfume’s stand-out feature is a unique combination of fruity smells (which comprises of melon, watermelon, prune & raspberry) with green grassy notes and a very subtle oceanic note.

The use of melon and watermelon is very interesting here, as both these fruits are available in the summers and are recommended for beating the heat. Hence, the user is subconsciously reminded of these “thirst quenching” fruits while smelling the perfume and it gives her a feel of coolness in the summers.

This effect is further enhanced by the mint notes, while the hint of the ocean adds an air of depth and mysticism to it, enhancing its feminine and sensuous character.

An irresistibly alluring eau de parfum, Cool Water for Women is recommended for summer/day time wear.
