R-L: Davidoff Cool Water Woman Wave, Original, Summer Dive (latest)
Davidoff Cool Water is probably my all time favourite perfume – I love the original scent and have now built a bit of a collection of that and the various other scents released as Summer/Limited Edition versions of the ‘Cool Water’ family. It really is the best scent for summer, so fresh and light – never overpowering but lasts really well.
The latest launch is Davidoff Cool Water Woman ‘Summer Dive’ (on the left in the picture) I’m not a fragrance expert but there is something about this one that I like even more than the original scent – there’s something about this one that smells a bit more modern than the original I was going to say something a bit more citrus but from my research it seems to be mint that’s making the difference – but it still has the familiar smell of the original scent of Cool Water.
As I said, not a fragrance expert, so I have used the ever-so-handy www.escentual.com to give me a professional break down of what the original and the latest version smell of! I’ve also included the best prices I can find online next to the description.

A few places also still stock the Davidoff Cool Water Wave (on the left in the picture) that I picked up for a bargain price of about £12 in Boots a year or so ago. So here’s the break down of how that differs from the original too.
