David Cool Water is one of my favourite perfumes as I think it is very light but captivating at the same time and definitely a smell that you remember when you smell it. It's because of this that I decided to buy the body lotion as well to get a good base fragrance to wear under the perfume and go for the layering effect.
Davidoff first created Cool water in 1991 with the Cool Water Women version coming out in 1997. His inspiration behind the perfume is as follows:
"Water, one of life's simplest but most invigorating sensations". The fragrance is said to create an impression of energy and bliss, sensuality and serenity. It is meant to be refreshing as water itself. I do see what they are trying to conjure up with the statement. I find the fragrance very sensual as it lasts on your skin and does have quite a refreshing smell to it.
The fragrance itself is classified as a flowery fragrance with fruity notes of Quince, blackcurrant, pineapple, honeydew melon as well as a fresh floral blend of lotus blossom and waterlily. There are also some woody notes, blended with the scent of ocean water.
The lotion itself is lovely and light and goes onto the skin very well. It absorbs very easily and definitely leaves a very nice smell on your skin afterwards. You can pretty much smell it for the whole day after you have applied it which I love as it does not fade. The lotion is said to help the skin retain moisture and provides softness which I can contest it definitely does. I don't wear it everyday as I only put it on when I decide to wear the perfume too but after a day on my skin I find my skin is still very smooth and silky.
I also really like this body lotion for the bottle too which makes a lovely statement look on your dresser. The bottle is designed to look like a droplet of water and in my opinion it really does. It is a gorgeous translucent blue colour and is bigger at the bottom than the top. It has almost a bulb shape to it, just like a drop of water from a tap. At the top of the bottle is a silver chrome topper from which the lotion comes out.
I bought my bottle in Boots and for a 200ml bottle it was £15.66
