Eau de Colognes

Eau de Colognes are less concentrated fragrances, which makes them perfect for the summer months. All of these eau de colognes are suitable for both men and women. So buy a generous bottle and splash it on liberally all summer long.
Firstly, my latest find, Eau des Minimes. Unusually for eau de colognes, tonka is included in the list of notes. And it's the hint of tonka that gives Eau des Minimes its unique edge. Definitely worth a try.

One that I've written about before is Fleur de Vigne by Caudalie. This is still one of my favourite eau de colognes — beautifully fresh with a mild vine blossom hint.

Dior's Escale a Portofino is an incredibly elegant eau de cologne. If citrus fragrances help you to feel alive in the mornings, then this could be the perfect eau de cologne for you.

Verging on being more of a perfume than an eau de cologne, Orange Sanguine by Atelier Cologne is beautiful for hot weather. The smell of citrus fruit layered onto mild woody notes will transport you to an orange grove.

This morning I received a sample of Heeley's Oranges and Lemons Say the Bells of St Clements. I'm trying it for the first time today and think it's going to be pretty good.

Last, but not least, Diptyque's Eau de Neroli is a gorgeous, light fragrance. Neroli is a classic blossom note that is ideal for summertime. No list of summer eau de colognes would be complete without a neroli fragrance.

Let me know what eau de colognes you're enjoying this summer.
