Eau de Cologne du Coq Fragrance Reviews

I love this Eau de cologne du coq, my favourite for a long time. This is the fragrance you can even wear when getting to sleep at night, so refreshing and subtle, a blend of natural herbs and citrus. It but takes skills to develop this as random mixture would be banal while this coq outstands the citrus colognes. I love herbs in du coq, wish it would last longer during the day, so am looking for eau de toilette version of this.

I own both du Coq and Imperiale by Guerlain; mine are standard modern formulations and come in the same type of oval shaped domed bottle with bees reliefed on the glass.

Naturally I decided to test these two old Guerlain refreshing colognes side by side, one on each arm.

The similarities are overwhelming, the diffrences between Du Coq and Imperiale are smaller than those between Coke and Pepsi.

For a while I got the impression that Du Coq lasted longer but then Imperiale suddenly made a come back on my skin while Du Coq took a walk - so I would say they are roughly equal in longevity as well. Du Coq seems to project better and be more full bodied somehow during drydown - but again - it's just speculation on my part.

If you are tired of fragrances and only seek a bit of honest old fashioned refreshment courtesy of long gone epochs then Du Coq (or Imperiale) could be the thing you are looking for. A good cologne is in a way a fragrance that ends your interest in other fragrances as it almost always feels more refreshing and relaxing.

Lemon/citrus assault (the good kind) and a gentle floral drydown to a sandalwood base. Light, lovely and fleeting, as a summer fragrance should be. I got a crazy great deal on a 100 ml bottle and probably would not re-purchase for the going price - kind of spendy. If I ever finish this off, I'll go back to M pour Monsieur, which is very similar and longer lasting, though a little less refined and gentle - about 1/3 the price for twice as much (my MpM is a 200 ml jug).

This fragrance reminds me of 4711. It's nice enough, but very poor longevity and projection. It seems like after I apply the fragrance that it's gone in several minutes. I like it's citrusy and floral attributes. It's a refreshing fragrance to wear in the Spring and Summer.
"Imperial" which is by the same design house doesn't smell the same as this one.

Old fashioned luxury...

This is one fragrance that I appreciate very much. A classic by Aimé Guerlain, the man who created Jicky, a milestone fragrance in the history of perfumery. Many have remarked (including Luca Turin) that Eau de Cologne du Coq is an Eau de Cologne with Jicky mixed in. I don't quite see it as that. Because to me Jicky is famous for the introduction of vanilla into Guerlain perfumes, and there is no vanilla here. Instead, to me this one is similar to Guerlain's Eau de Cologne Imperiale with it's classic "Eau de Cologne" formula of herbs and citrus. The only real difference here is the prominent lavender and musk combination, which can give it a slight "dirtiness" as perceived by some, but which in my opinion fixes the fragrance and gives it a greater longevity than the former.

It's one which I enjoy wearing, and which smells pleasing to others. Overall, I would recommend it over Eau de Cologne Imperiale purely for the reason that it lasts longer on my skin, and I would repurchase this one over the other. It does smell a little "old fashioned" but I have never had a problem with it, and the people around me have also liked it enough for compliments. The name references the national animal and symbol of France, the cock (i.e. rooster). It is very classic and very French, what more would you expect from Guerlain... Arguably the best house in French perfumery? Good stuff!

A classic citrus masculine. In the same vein as Armani PH and Eau Sauvage but a less concentrated version. No more than 2 hours of longevity so if you don't mind carrying an atomizer with you then that solves that issue.

This EdC is pretty fizzy, with a lot of the type of sappy lemon that doesn't stand up and rub its peel in your face. It goes through a minute or so of surprising weakness right at the beginning, maybe while the alcohol initially covers some of the notes, so be prepared for this. Even after this phase, I thought I hadn't sprayed enough, so I did some more and I now realize that the stuff is just inherently weak, even for an EdC. I like the sharp intensity and brightness of what little scent it provides, but I've encountered plenty of stronger EdCs with beautifully appealing scents. In the end, you're left with nothing. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, and conclude that the weakness stems from their using all natural ingredients, but I could just go buy a $5 bottle of 4711 instead. (Already did!)

A refreshing lavender/citrus/neroli cologne. has lots of distinction and character, a cologne for an elegant gentleman, or for a woman.

I absolutely do not like this. It opens exactly like Portofino by Dior; lemon candy. To my horror, Coq also has a urinous note.

I went looking for Eau de Cologne du Coq, and that is what I found. Apt name for this cologne by the way.

I think I prefer Guerlain's L'Eau de Cologne Imperiale somewhat better, but that's probably because I'm attracted to the whole product (the bee bottle, the Napoleonic connection, the 1860 historicity of it) rather than by a purely olfactory preference. But this is also quite nice. A classic cologne.

Fact is, I'm not a big fan of the cologne genre. They all disappear within an hour or so leaving me to wonder, "What's the point?" My wife says, "Just smear yourself with a cut lemon."

But that being said, yes, this is another winner from Guerlain and yes, this is a noble scent.

I'll have to be the voice of dissent here. I have a 3.4 oz bottle of the stuff that's about 80% full, so I've given this fragrance an honest go and I do not like it...a bit. It's a strange thing too, because I really appreciate neroli in fragrances (Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino being my favorite). There is something in this fragrance, however, that smells old (not like an old person, but like the juice itself is old) - this fragrance actually smells like it was made in 1894. I think Luca Turin was right...that dollop of Jicky just ruins this fragrance for me. I want a citrus to be fresh and joyous, but something in this one just holds it down. Anyway, if any of you lovers of Eau du Coq want to add a bottle to your collection I have one you can take off of my hands.

This was created for the French actor Benoît-Constant Coquelin (23 January 1841 – 27 January 1909), hence the name.

Eau du Coq (interesting name) is an AWESOME classic eau. It takes the classic formula (think 4711 or Chanel Eau de Cologne) and gives a more herbal, peppery character, but the citrus and big fat neroli are still right there. It dries down to a a nice mossy/woody base that stays close to the skin.

I actually really like this Eaux, because it lasts a few hours on me before finally dissipating. Although, it doesn't beat Eau de Guerlain in my book.

Luca Turin calls Eau du Coq, "A good cologne with a drop of Jicky in it". I don't smell anything animalic (perhaps a very slight piss note), and I don't smell any lavender or vanilla. Anyway, if you like Eau du Coq, buy a couple bottles and douse yourself in it because that's what they're meant for :)

I tried this, and it is one of the very few fragrance that work fantastic with my skin. This is more of a woody aromatic fragrance on my skin, which is what I like.

Agree 1K % that this is an eminently UNISEX fragrance- super refreshing. Hard to believe it was created over a hundred years ago, it is so very TIMELESS.

How noble scent it is! Aromatic green citrus notes, with chypre sharpness, very comfortable and not so retro at all, for those who loves citrus fragrances.
