Colognes, EdT and EdP.No, you are thinking of an EDT...
A cologne at 5% cannot be bold. Brut to be bold is an EDT...Colognes, EdT and EdP.
With certain exceptions (Brut, for instance) colognes will be bolder (as I am understanding the definition for this thread) than AS. EdT than Cologne. EdP than Edt.

"Cologne" tends to be a bit of a generic term (think "Kleenex" ) these days - There are several EdT offerings on this thread.
I'm just checking what is meant by "bold"? Forward? Obnoxious? Drive everyone from the room?
Anyway, I'm probably overthinking this and getting way too far into the weeds so I'll just say Gray Flannel.
I know that it is a defined structure. That is what I stated.
Where have you stated the defined structure? The structure is high citrus notes, and floral and herbs heart notes.I know that it is a defined structure. That is what I stated.
You will also notice that the OP has not said a word about any of the EdTs that have been posted on this thread - and there are a few. In fact, the OP started the thread by naming Joop which from what I saw when I looked it up, is an EdT.
Therefore, my ASSUMPTION is that the OP is referencing the term "cologne" more as a generic term (my example of "Kleenex") than the stated structure "Cologne".
Does this answer your question?
We seem to be missing each other's points and, quite frankly, I am done with this conversation. If you want to argue further, you'll have to find someone else.Where have you stated the defined structure? The structure is high citrus notes, and floral and herbs heart notes.
The word Cologne should be struck out in this thread as a Cologne cannot possibly be bold. And every referenced fragrance is an EDT. There is no generic term of Cologne, the French, Germans, Spanish, Portuguese, British, Turkish, and Italians all know what a Cologne is.
I knew that this thread was going to head down this path. Maybe we should just say that you're both right and move on?We seem to be missing each other's points and, quite frankly, I am done with this conversation. If you want to argue further, you'll have to find someone else.
Have a wonderful, and blessed, Sunday.
