Today, most people think of the word "cologne" as a term for a man's fragrance. However, there is another meaning to the word which describes a perfume that originated in Cologne, Germany. These scents are light and refreshing - perfect for the spring and summer.

- The Florida Water Cologne
- The Classic Cologne
- The Citrus Cologne
- The Green/Fresh/Herbaceous Cologne
- The Floral Cologne
(The Florida Water Cologne was my favorite - think juicy citrus with a hint of spice).
