Eau de Hongrie Fragrance Reviews


Well this is lovely. It is a man's scent they say, but it's so lovely I got away with it. Fresh, spicy citrus/woods, like all of Fragonard's scents it's perfectly balanced and excellent quality. It will be heaven to wear it in summer. Why this isn't more widely known and worn, I have no idea. I like it so much that I want a bottle, and boo to the idea that only men get to wear it! :)


I just checked out a new fragrance by Viktoria Minya that was launched few days ago called Eau de Hongrie. It's not a reproduction of the original perfume but a new modern interpretation by Viktoria who is the Hungarian Perfumer. I love the smell, way more than Fragonard's, even though they are not comparable since they are different interpretation with the same name. And of course, Fragonard's version is a bulk production while Viktoria's is in the niche section...


Interprétation médiévale.

French Wikipedia for "parfum" says that : " Le premier alcoolat célèbre en Occident est l’Eau de la Reine de Hongrie (XIVe siècle), distillat à base de romarin et d’essence de térébenthine. Il s'agit encore d'un élixir, c'est-à-dire le médicament le plus précieux qu'on boit ou dont on se frictionne." It means that the first famous fragrance made with alcool in Europe is the Water of the Queen of Hungary (XIVth century), made with rosemary and terebenthin. It's an elixir, i e the most expensive medicine you drink or you put on your skin".

On his site Fragonard says :
"L’eau de Hongrie est une formule du XIVè siècle qui accorde de doux accents de bergamote et de jasmin, sur un fond chaleureux d’ambre et de ciste. Authentique et intemporelle, son élégante sobriété ne peut que séduire" which means in English :
"Eau de Hongrie is a 14th-century composition of soft bergamot and jasmine notes on a warm background of amber and cistus. Authentic, timeless and elegantly sober, it never fails to charm."

There's quite a difference between Wikipedia and Fragonard, but i can't say more.


Senteur 8.5/10 C'est une petite merveille assez difficilement portable. Je l'aime par temps de pluie de jour moyennement frais (15°c - 20°c), en automne ou au printemps, donc. Il y a un équilibre parfait dans ce parfum et un air de revenez-y... mais encore une fois ce parfum ne convient pas à un temps ensoleillé à mon sens.

Longévité 2/2 C'est un parfum de jour, et sa longévité est totalement acceptable pour laisser sa place à un autre parfum pour le soir.

Sillage 2/2 Réel sans être trop fort, ce qui en fait un excellent "parfum de bureau". Mais il convient mieux en extérieur.

Masculinité 2/2 Dégage une virilité totalement acceptable pour le jour !

Evolution 2.5/4 Tend plutôt à s'affadir au fil des heures, mais finalement c'est plutôt un reproche acceptable pour ce type de parfum !

Total 17/20


I have got it as a solid perfume in a tiny round box-smal Xmas gift from a friend who has just returned from Europe. In a hot australian weather it is so refreshing, particularly applied so authentically-finger rubbed in a jar and tapped on my skin. I have only realised later it is a men's scent-it is so delicately refreshing, in a simple non-intrusive way. It smells clean and crisp, and calls for a crisp casual white shirt, minimal make-up...And hey, i feel like I am back in Europe myself.Apparently it translates as Water from Hungary, but i can't figure out why. Hungary is associated with spices to me. Can anyone tell me?
