Since its first appearance in the Eighteenth Century, Traditional Eau de Cologne has had a reputation for being both medicinal and spiritual. Unlike other perfumes, Eau de Cologne (EDC) is not meant to be a long-lasting scent. True EDC lasts but a matter of minutes is largely citrus-based and has a fresh and uplifting scent. Its reputation as a purification, blessing, and bringer of good fortune is legendary.
In modern practice, EDC offers a method of purification and blessing that is simple to employ, effective and is especially effective when incense smoke is not appropriate. However, if scents are not good for you, then you will need to employ a completely scent-free method of blessing and purification.
EDC can be used in the same way as van-van. It's purification abilities are highlighted over its blessing abilities. For an excellent overall blessing, 2 sprays of EDC and 1 spray of van-van works wonders.
I have included some favorites here.
I have personally used each of these brands. You can find my reviews on each product. I make a small commission off the sales of these linked products, yet my main purpose here is to share these perfumes with you.
