(Note: The full-bottle size of this product has been discontinued.) Some scents come alive in warm weather, and Andy Tauer's Cologne du Maghreb is one of them. This all-natural, all-botanical fragrance is loaded with bright pops of citrus, but there's a twist in the base: oriental notes like cistus, vetiver, and cedarwood. Together, they make a refreshing juice that bridges the East and West and leaves you energized and happy. Oh, and here's a pro tip you can break out at parties: "Cologne" has never meant "for men"; it refers simply to the concentration and structure of a scent. So men and women alike can grab this scent, spray it liberally, and spray it often. Notes include citrus accord, cistus, ambreine, cedarwood, Java vetiver oil, bergamot, lemon, neroli, orange blossom, lavender, rosemary, rose absolute, rose essential oil, and clary sage.
