Douro by Penhaligon's: Created in 1911, it was originally called Douro Eau de Portugal. This elegant cologne was named after one of the most important port producing regions in Portugal; the Douro Valley.
The sharpness of green limes and soapy bergamot burst from the bottle onto the skin. This forceful start slows down, blending with garden fresh geranium and lily for a moment of floral contemplation, lending Douro both sharp piquancy and a comforting depth. Then the base notes of musk and the all important sandalwood start to assert themselves. These three stages are all underpinned with labdanum, a bitter resin that imparts a unique leathery note, smoothing the fragrance into a mellow delight.
Great bouquet, depth, persistence and a glorious golden brown mellowness.
