Isn't it funny how fragrances can take you right back to an exact moment in time? As a super young child, veering on becoming a teenager Davidoff Cool Waters fragrances were the scents to be seen in. Anybody who was anyone had a bottle. As I was yet to as much as become a teenager I of course had to beg, and then beg a little more for a bottle that Christmas. Luckily my Grandmother answered my plight and man did I feel grown up. So grown up that I wore it to the local carnival (the UK equivalent of a state fare) and was over the moon when an adult working there complimented me on my choice of fragrance. Like I said it is bizarre what fragrances can make you recall.
If I'm entirely honest I have long grown out of Davidoff Cool Water fragrances, they are slightly too aquatic for my taste. However if you enjoy fragrances within this category and/or you happen to be a fan of the original, then I highly suggest you try out the latest and limited edition version - Davidoff Cool Water Summer Seas Eau de Toilette.
Davidoff Cool Water Summer Seas Eau de Toilette is very much identical to the original Cool Water fragrance for women; light and aquatic (it most likely smells how you imagine), it will remind you of the beach and of course the sea/water - hence the name. The new and limited edition version contains a few different notes lily of the valley and melon (as noted above) which does give it a slightly different twist especially on the dry down. It doesn't cloy in the heat and is very refreshing, it is one of the few scents that I can wear in the warmest of weather safe in the knowledge that it won't give me a headache or make me feel sick. I must stress that there is not all that much of a difference between the original Cool Waters and the Summer Seas version; this edition is ever so slightly lighter, fresher and does have a light fruity additional note.
