In 1984, Davidoff has made its mark with its aromatic aquatic fragrance, Cool Water, so it's interesting to know that Davidoff started off far from the sea. Henri Davidoff and his family fled to Switzerland from Russia in 1905 due to political unrest and opened a tobacconist shop in Geneva. It was only in the 1980s when the Davidoff brand expanded to include perfume, leather goods and accessories. The rest, as they say, is history.
Many editions of this favourite and other successful fragrances are what keep the Davidoff fragrance line a household name in perfumery.
