A Mediterranean escape through fresh citrus groves and soft white flowers, with an undertone of mysteré and romance as you find yourself intoxicated by soft woods.
Kolonya is an anomaly foreign to us in the West. Think of a parfum that kills germs. Everyone has one and they’re as typically Turkish as apple pie is typically American.
This is our homage to the traditional Kolonya (colognes) offered to guests at Turkish dinner parties, where they are beckoned to spray their hands and faces with fragrant citrus colognes. This is customary before eating, and the sprays both act as hand sanitizers as well as fragrances to refresh and relax guests before the meal.
Traditionally, Turkish people use kolonyas as anti-septics in barber shops, as mosquito repellents and for first aid. Some even treat blemishes with Kolonya, while others just use them as body sprays. They take it with them to travel, to spray on their bed linens, and to ward off nausea. There are thousands of types of Kolonyas in Turkey; ranging from very inexpensive grocery store brands to high end luxury types.
Our version is complex (it’s us, after all..) with a combined recipe of 22 different notes; however, it still lends functionality towards being an effective hand sanitizer with 73% ethyl which has anti-bacterial, anti-viral and fungicidal properties.
Moisturizing glycerin prevents over-drying of hands and the scent is as intoxicating as it is refreshing.
Our realization is a re-interpreted and modernized version of sparkling, sophisticated citrus with a fresh floral body and a whispered dry down of soft woods.

It's a very punchy scent, great for holidays as well as a refreshing spritz to wake you up during the day. I am looking forward to using it to repel mozzies on my next holiday!

Whats more, they're even donating 50% to COVID-19 related charities for these and other select items!
The scent is so soothing to me. I bought one bottle and then ended up buying a second because I would hate to run out....
The Collective Cosmetics continues to raise the bar of excellence!
This is a beautiful fragrance! All the notes are so well blended and work beautifully together. It has a gorgeous, fresh Mediterranean vibe reminiscent of Acqua di Parma. I love spritzing on my clothing as I will get frequent whifts of it throughout the day. Nice lasting power. Very happy with my purchase! I hope they make more fragrances in the future.
