    So Florida Water cost $3.8 from Walgreen, just the Vodka will cost you more plus the oils etc'
    And then you can only keep this two month? my bottle of FW last me a year.
    How about a recipe to make something like Hugo Boss EDT?

    • How about, “gee thanks for sharing!”.
      It’s about having fun creating your own splash, creating something, experimenting, etc. If you toy around with the recipe and increase the alcohol content and lose more water you can make it last. This is a traditional recipe I have shared here going back over 100 years, zero preservatives. Sure you may save a buck buying it at the drugstore but it won’t be as pure and fresh as your very own concoction.
