What Fun It Is To Wear Cola!
From the three teenage boy perfumes by Nobile 1942, Cola is definitely the most attractive! It is hard to believe that a perfumer can create a scent that smells just as Coca-Cola tastes – let's say, Nobile 1942 comes quite near to achieve that goal. Actually, I had a Coke Zero when I wore it today, and it gave me even the impression that there was more Cola smell in my perfume than taste in that beverage!

It is actually that cola note which is dominating the fragrance. There are citruses around it, especially lime, that give it a fresh appeal. Some white musk in the base might give it some volume, and it is contrasting extremely well against the dry cedar note that can be found in all three fragrances of the A la Corte del Re Cedro Atlas series. So, not much complexness at all, besides the cola accord.

There are currently only 5 fragrances in the Parfumo database that contain such a note. I dare say that presumably nothing comes as close to Coke as this one. I also own Lubin's Bluff, but that is quite far away from that concept.

The A la Corte del Re perfumes are all highly diluted – which may be okay if you give it into the hands of the very young future perfumistas. I had to spray a lot, but finally, I achieved a decent sillage and longevity. In their instructive brochure that comes along with the set, Nobile 1942 warns their young audience not to leave Cola in the bathroom where brothers and fathers may take advantage of the situation. I think they are right to do so!

But Cola also shows us the limitations of niche brands. This wonderful set is hardly available on the net. A few Italian perfume shops may have it. Nobile 1942 has absolutely no market power to bring such a brilliant perfume forward to a wider audience. Supposed, the supply chain of the ingredients is suitable for mass production, what if PepsiCo or Coca-Cola would order it as a side product, in reasonable Eau de Toillette strength? I have no doubts that it would provide a big extra profit! It is a capitalist myth that the market always provides the best for the consumer – in fact, we never get the best.

I very much recommend a blind buy of that set – if you really should not like it, you can always give it away to your sons and nephews.
