It's easy to fool yourself into thinking all cologne-style fragrances are the same- fresh, fleeting, and, dare we say, forgettable. But while Cologne 352 keeps the crisp citrus top notes and energetic orange blossom of an Italian classic, the signature scent of Ex Nihilo's Rue Saint-Honoré boutique is a different kind of cologne- one with a surprisingly lush floral component and a substantive woody-musky drydown that make this particular cologne uniquely, distinctly Parisian.
Opening with a gentle yet brisk splash of Italian lemon made aromatic with a tinge of juniper, Cologne 352 builds to a sophisticated crescendo of orange blossom softened with rose and delicate muguet, presenting crisp and lush notes that evoke morning strolls through Latin Quarter gardens. In the lovely, lingering drydown, a substantive dose of cedar, gaiac and musk gives Cologne 352 a staying power that its Italian ancestors can only dream of, and a unisex appeal impossible to deny. Whether you love cologne or not, you've never tried one like Cologne 352.
