NOTES (as listed on – Lemon, Aquatic Note, Freesia, White Lily, Sandalwood, Exotic Fruit, Spices, Cedar, Musk

I guess you can say that I have a soft spot for Davidoff, as Cool Water was my fragrance of choice in my early high school days. I saw Cool Water Game at my local Marshall’s ($8.99 USD for a 1 fl oz bottle!) over the weekend, and decided to give it a try.


AGE GROUP: Perfect for anyone


FORM: Eau de Toilette

At first spray, Cool Water Game smells very (for lack of other words) cheap. I know I probably shouldn’t even complain, as it was cheap. I just really don’t think that was what Davidoff was really going for with this fragrance.

The scent settles quickly, thankfully, and it’s not bad! I’m digging it at first; I even caught myself smelling my wrist every so often. This perfume really reminded me of something, and I just couldn’t place it.

Then it hit me.

Cool Water Game smells exactly like a Bounce dryer sheet.

Which isn’t bad… if you want to smell like a dryer sheet.

Once the realization hit, Cool Water Game lost any and all appeal for me. It’s not horrible, but it’s not great… it’s just a simple, clean fragrance. And it smells just like a Bounce sheet.

On a positive note, Cool Water Game lasts and lasts and lasts. It’s been nearly eight hours, and I can still smell the scent as if I had just applied it.
