“Summer 2019” Decant Pack. Six summer colognes, regular $30.00 for $23.00, plus shipping.

Eau de Cologne Du Coq - Guerlain

This is one of the original colognes from Guerlain, launched in 1894. Guerlain lists the notes as: Lavender, Lemon, Bergamot, Orange, and Rosemary. Citrusy up top, an earthy character emerges from the herbs and indolic floral as it dries down, and it ends with rich woody notes. Eau de Cologne Du Coq has a clean elegance to it, with a slightly dirty edge that lifts it out of the archives and drops it into the 21st century. 

Eau Dynamisante – Clarins 

This is a hidden gem displayed in plain sight on the cosmetic shelves in your favourite department or drug store. Containing essential oils and natural extracts, it’s the perfect balance of citrus and herbs with airy floral facets. And the earthiness at the end is pure bliss, nirvana, a place to go when the real world is just too darn hot! Eau Dynamisante is like walking in a cloud of “cool” all day long.

Haute Provence- Nicolaï Parfumeur-Créateur 

Colognes make hot days bearable and this little gem, built around ‘true lavender’, is a summer life-saver! It’s the paring of lavender with iris that makes this fragrance so irresistible to me. Smooth and elegant and sweet, floral and woody. Perfect for ‘haute’ days.

Les Colognes Néroli- Annick Goutal 

It’s floral and green, with a nose-tingling freshness. Neroli paired with fresh, voluptuous orange blossom creates a gorgeous, lush tumble of white flowers on my skin. This, dear readers, is the smell of a perfect summer’s day! 

Lime Basil & Mandarin– Jo Malone

I think the Brits do some things better than others. Jo Malone’s fabulous Lime Basil & Mandarin opens with the smell of lime zest rubbed on the rim a cocktail glass, green, tart, aromatic, which sweetens ever so slightly and slowly by the addition of fresh-squeezed mandarin orange. Then the magic happens...herbal notes of basil and thyme transform the rich citrus accord into a top-notch cologne. You’ll be cool, calm, and collected all day.

Twilly d’Hermès- Hermès 

Built around just three notes: tuberose, ginger and sandalwood, it’s the way these notes are manipulated and blended that makes it so gotta-have-it! Twilly is the scent of a light-hearted fling, not a deep seduction, which makes it ideal for carefree summer days and nights.
