Cool Water (Davidoff)

My Full Fragrance Review:

Hey guys, I bet if you were to walk into any German men’s bathroom, you’d probably spot two fragrances sitting there – and one of them would be Cool Water from Davidoff. Even though this fragrance has been on the market for quite some time, it’s still a favorite among many men. One reason it’s so popular is definitely its affordable price point, so let’s dive in and see what’s so cool about Cool Water.

Cool Water EdT vs Parfum vs Intense (Davidoff)

Quick Facts:

  • Scent Profile: fresh
  • Season: summer
  • Longevity: average
  • Occasion: office, leisure time
  • Price: $

Smell:

When it comes to the scent, Cool Water couldn’t have a more fitting name. It’s got this fresh, slightly aquatic vibe, like you’re the only person taking a dip in a crystal-clear lake just after sunrise. The water’s freezing, but when you step out, you feel awake, strong, and refreshed. That’s Cool Water in a nutshell.

I won’t lie, the smell is pretty nice, and it was definitely a game-changer when it first hit the market. However, these days, the scent profile seems a bit too familiar, reminding me of a high-quality laundry detergent. So, who’s Cool Water for? If you’re a traditional, manly guy, this one’s for you – it’s a 100% masculine fragrance without any sweet or fruity undertones.

You can rock Cool Water at the office or during your downtime, especially in the summer. But I wouldn’t recommend wearing it on a date or to a nightclub, as it’s a bit too basic for those occasions.

Longevity:

Surprisingly, for such a fresh scent, Cool Water performs quite well. I get around 6 hours out of it, which isn’t too shabby. Out of the Cool Water series, the original EdT is a top performer, only coming in second to the Cool Water Intense version.

Final Thoughts:

The original Cool Water from Davidoff has got to be one of the best-selling men’s fragrances of all time – at least here in Germany. It seems like just about everyone I know either has it or has owned it at some point.

While it’s still a solid choice for guys looking for a fresh scent, it does feel a bit dated and overused. But hey, given its price point, you’re getting a pretty nice package. So if you’re after a reliable, masculine, and fresh scent that’s affordable, Cool Water might just be the splash you need.
