    I found Murray & Lanmans Florida Water in stock at The Danforth Fruit Market on the Danforth, just east of Main St., for $5.99 and needless to say, snagged a bottle. I thought my fellow Torontonians would like to know. I've never seen it anywhere else in T. O.

    My wife says it smells like Pledge going on ... the citrus topnotes start off strong. After 10 minutes of drydown it starts smelling like spiced apple cider to me.

    I love it.

    To me, it smells like Lime Sec and Bay Rum.

    If you have ever been in a position to smell the air freshener called Ozium, that is a pretty dang close approximation of what Florida Water smells like.

    Interesting post. The Danforth Fruit Market is a Caribbean grocery store, so the Santeria connection probably explains why they've got the FW.

    The Florida Water, Kananga Water, and even Hoyt's Cologne have some hoodoo meanings in different cultures.

    I've read some people even use a little FW in their mop water. Cleans the haints/boogers/etc right out of the house. My wife says it smells like upscale Pledge so I wonder LOL.

    I seem to get quite a few genuine compliments when wearing Florida Water. I think a lot of its sent depends on your individual body chemistry. My wife usually likes only upper end fragrances but she loves FW.
