Big surprise
Frankfurt, Kaiserstraße, Indian kiosk. I walk past the shop window and see this little colorful bottle.
I went in right away, tested it. Very cinnamon-heavy but fresh fragrance.
Is pleasant, remains pleasant.
Fifteen minutes later: bottle bought. 221 milliliters for 3.99 euros.
The most beautiful thing for me is that it doesn't end as eau de cologne with neroli, which always seems terribly stale on my skin, but disappears completely after about 20 minutes.
Maybe a little old-fashioned, but good. Not old-fashioned.
Would have liked to pay 2 Euro more and get a glass bottle for it, but, what the hell!
A wonderful refresher. Look forward to the hot summer days!

affordable hot-weather Egoiste with an interesting story
This is nice stuff, and its value per dollar is almost unbeatable! On eBay, it's about $1 US/ounce, shipping included.

With the clove and cinnamon quite noticeable here, this has a bit of that Coca-Cola feeling to it as Chanel Egoiste does. Florida Water is much lighter, though. It's surprisingly cool given the amount of spice. I would say that it would traditionally fit the role of a man more than a woman, but there's no reason a woman couldn't wear it. Keep it in your refrigerator and splash it on when it's hot out but you're getting tired of citrusy summer scents!

Also, note that it is used among hoodoo practitioners as part of occult observances such as ridding an area of bad spirits. Here is one explanation: http://hoodooyoudoo.blogspot.com/2011/09/florida-water.html

Fresh, spicy and citrusy cola in the opening, slightly harsher after the drydown. Uplifting, inexpensive and an easy grab during summer.+2
