Laura Mercier Sheer Bold Tres Chic Collection





Alvarez Gomez Agua de Colonia

 

 

Capping one hundred years of success in its native Spain, 2012 belongs to Agua de Colonia. Still blended by hand in
Madrid, Alvarez Gomez 'intense signature scent is – just like its homeland – bold, brightand dynamic. This light, fresh
creation is one of the industry’s few originals and so it’s hardly surprising that it remains Spain’s most popular home produced cologne to this day. A fragrance as vivid as its canary-yellow packaging, Agua de Colonia’s formulation remains impressively unchanged since its conception one hundred years ago. Infusing tart-lemon primary notes with Geranium, Eucalyptus and Spanish Lavender, this handsome, uplifting, Mediterranean cologne also combines citrus boldness with secondary notes of Rosemary, English Lavender and Bergamot for a crisp, European sensibility. With its rich heritage and timeless appeal, Agua de Colonia is already causing a stir in the USA
and Japan having only recently been introduced to foreign markets for the first time. Its success overseas is set to continue as it extends its reach across the UK in this its centenary year. Every month more discerning stockists are discovering for themselves just what makes
this iconic scent, and accompanying bath and body products, so popular.

Colognes' are usually citrusy but you can find different versions as well, like lavender, orange blossom, bergamot, Rose and Tobacco

Just a little info for you before I start to give you information about this specific Alvarez Gomez’s Colognes'
