Cologne Sample

  • This is a 2 ml spray sample . Find the full bottle here.  

  • The name ‘Cologne” may not seem terribly inspiring. But we adore the simplistic approach ELDO took, an atypical one to their traditional MO. It’s uncomplicated and casual, beginning with bright bursts of bergamot-soaked orange blossoms giving way to freshness throughout. But don’t be fooled by ELDO’s naming trickery: Cologne is just its name, not its concentration level. This is definitely an EDP. A fresh, somewhat sharp, citrus forward linear fragrance, it’s deliciously pleasing, sexy in simplicity, all the way to the slightly tanned leather finish.


    Notes include blood orange, orange blossom, bergamot, jasmine, musk, and leather
