There is nothing like SMN Colonia Russa!

Russa is so uplifting and fresh. The notes are quite complex, so while it may be a short lived cologne, it isn’t simple. I wish it had matching body products to lengthen the wear, but I just carry a travel spray with me to top up. That’s the beauty of having the bottle come in splash form with an atomiser in the box so you have the option to decant the liquid into a smaller spray bottle. Russa is particularly good for long mind numbing trips or those mid-afternoon slumps when I could reach for the chocolate, but spritz instead for the healthier option. I love it so much I don’t miss the chocolate one bit!
