Citric, orangy, fresh!
An Eau de Cologne is always a welcome sight – provided that you do not suffer from 4711-phobia! Common thread of this type of fragrance is the typical, often dominant neroli note which more or less stands out from other citric notes. Such perfumes are available as true Eau de Colognes – which means that they exclusively consist of top notes – but also as regular Eau de Toilettes.

Penhaligon's is competing with itself: next to the Eau de Cologne, we have the slightly floral Castile, with emphasis on the neroli note, voluminous and with comparatively long longevity. On the other side, there is the citric-green classic called Blenheim Bouquet. And in between, we have the Eau de Cologne. Here, the neroli note is quite dominant as well, but it is put together with a lemony note that is quite strong at the beginning. Not bad: on one side, we have the more robust style provided by a strong lemony note, on the other side neroli brings in a fine elegance. This is best of both worlds!

The citric note in the top soon looses some of its strength, the neroli stays much longer. Maybe, also lavender is part of the game, because this Eau de Cologne “hovers” a bit.

Penhaligon‘s Eau de Cologne is well done, fresh and rather citrusy. With these attributes, it gets near Guerlain's classic Eau de Cologne Imperiale which perfect airiness it might not quite achieve. This is not necessarily a con, it is just a shade different. It is sufficient to own just one of these simple, but very beautiful fragrances – there are no big differences.

A good Eau de Cologne is a superb, short refreshment in midsummer, on a hot day. It is not supposed to last very long, because then it would become annoying. Penhaligon‘s Eau de Cologne meets all those requirements and can be recommended without any reservation.
