I've had this sample long enough that I've used up most of its 5 ml; long enough that it's become as much a reference eau de cologne for me as 4711. I'm going to ignore listed notes and describe what I smell. The opening is lemon blossom, neroli, soft unidentifiable herbs, and French triple-milled soap. Later there is Neroli-scented triple-milled soap, and the lemon blossom fades, along with the herbs. That soapy bit continues in little wafts here or there for a few hours, but the citrusy bits are ephemeral. It's a good value, but not quite as citrusy as I would like.

A beautiful, light cologne strength splash in spray bottle. Excellent neroli note, along with bergamot, orange, lemon, rosemary, lavender, patchouli and some light musk. As mentioned, this doesn't really progress much from the opening, but who's a fabulous fragrance, perfect for this time of year with the hot weather.

I know Sologne is an area in France, but the name of this fragrance makes me think of the Oreo commercial.

There's a board meeting in 1989, where the members are trying to come up with the name of their new product. One of the board members is asking if anyone has any ideas for the product name, and one of the other members asks him if he wants a pretzel from the tray on the table. The board member who is trying to get suggestions says, pretzels schmetzels! We need a name for this new cologne! The other board member lights up and says, that's it! Cologne Sologne! And the rest is history...

This is a great light fragrance perfect for Summertime. There is a soap note similar to Creed Himalaya. It differs from Creed in that there is more citrus. It reminds me of a Penhaligon's - perhaps Blenheim Bouquet.

Super pleasant, airy-citrusy white floral scent which makes great subtle use of rosemary; It's like 'almost-lime.' Little here in the way of movement or progression, but its a suave, natural splash-on for the warmer days of the year. Highly recommended for those looking for a slightly better 4711.

Genre: Citrus

Brisk green notes, bittersweet citrus and smooth lavender open Cologne Sologne in the classic eau de Cologne manner. Some woods, orange blossom, and additional aromatics appear in the background, but again in traditional eau de Cologne manner, there isn't much more to the development. Cologne Sologne is very smooth and nicely balanced, but I don't find much that's unique or individual about its composition. Nice, but no more than that.

A good traditional citrus cologne. High quality. I like it better than AdP Colonia. Longevity is what you'd expect. Probably in the top tier of the genre, but still nothing ground-breaking.
