I was bought the Davidoff cool water as a gift for Christmas, as my parents knew that my favorite Eau de Toilette is Davidoff cool water, so it only stands to reason they would get me something a little different from last year!
The Davidoff hot water comes in a very stylish red bottle, which is very plain but looks good with it, much like the bottle of cool water, but it has two lines on it with the hot water simple on the front and plain at the back, but I like this simply because you can see how much of the product is left. The bottle has a black cap, which covers a spray bottle which is much better than those that have open pouring tops, as it lasts much much longer.
Hot water has a very light and refreshing smell i my opinion and is a very pleasant smelling fragrance, which has a hint of spice to it too which makes it very interesting in a very good way! I would say the staying power of this is fantastic, unlike most aftershaves, it can last a few hours with only a couple of sprays. I have had this since Christmas and use it nearly everyday before I go to work and have not even used a quarter of a bottle yet so I expect it to last a very long time!
I did not buy this product, but from glancing online, I see it is very well priced at less than £20 at most places, which is a steal for this! The product is available with the matching shower gel, very similar to cool water, but I was bought the normal sized bottle which is 110ml.
if you loved the cool water version as much as I did, then I recommend that you give Hot water a try, as it is a great smelling Eau de Toilette that will last a long time!
Davidoff always makes me think of David Hasselhoff. I guess it's the name which sounds a bit like Hasselhoff. There is one thing for sure and that is that Davidoff offers a fragrance for the man who is in control, very much like the Hoff. I have been using the Cool Water fragrance for years, so was very excited when the newer Hot Water version arrived on shelves.
You can distinguish it from the Cool Water because this one comes in a fiery red bottle. Simple and effective packaging makes it look chic and sensual and ideal for the fashion savvy gent.
You use the pump action spray which comes out in a contolled airy jet to distribute the fragrance. Like with it's predecessor, I found that a little goes a long way. This is a potent and dynamic smell which will turn heads and perk up noses wherever you go. It claims to offer a burning heat to the person who wears it. Well, no burning with me, but I get what they mean with the warm tones pushing through with smouldering desire. The steamy combination of red basil and absinthe make these extra spicey and provoking. These top notes are seriously strong and not going to suit the man who is conservative.
Further down in this fragrance, we have some subtler notes working well to soften the overbearing spice. Patchouli I had heard of but I never come across styrax before,which comes from the Styracaceae family of shrubs. These gave the fragrance a herbal aroma and also helped settle the stronger top notes.
This is a fragrance I like to dip into for those nights out when you want to turn heads. I feel for daytime it would suffice, if used in very small dashes. A 60ml bottle will cost around the thirty pound mark and can be bought online or from all leading department stores. Bold, fiery and exciting, this is stronger than The Cool Water and for the man who wants to be passionate with how he smells.
Davidoff Hot Water arrived as a fiery oriental, masculine fragrance in September 2009. Top notes feature absynth and red basil, with the heart introducing hot accords of pimento and patchouli, while the base encompasses styrax and benzoin. The flacon is very appealing, coloured in dark red.
