Cool Water

#10 Davidoff Cool Water

This fragrance by Davidoff is pretty timeless. It basically smells like spring in a bottle thanks to its notes of mint, lavender, coriander, and rosemary. Reviewers have applauded this product for its lasting power – you’ll still be able to smell the scent after a whole day of wear. It’s also worth noting that other reviewers have mentioned that over-spritzing this fragrance can make it smell a little synthetic so go easy on this one.

Cost: $26.99 @ Chemist Warehouse

Real life review: “Nice perfume and long lasting scent. Would recommend for everyday wear.” – Ashleigh

Ralph Lauren

#9 Ralph Lauren Polo Blue

Ralph Lauren’s Polo Blue combines fresh flavours like basil, melon, and mandarin with musky notes to create an earthy scent. While the combination might sound strange, it really works in this instance.
