Canoe cologne by Dana is an aromatic fougere fragrance for men that debuted in 1938 behind the nose of perfumeeer Jean Carles. It is a true classic scent. It is a very clean and aquatic scent. This cologne is even in the National Museum of American History, a tribute to its roots as a cologne for World War II soldiers.
Fragrance Family: Spicy
Scent Type: Aromatic, sweet, powder
Notes: Canoe is a clean scent with top notes of lavender standing out clearly. It is nostalgic, with citrus mingling with spice and cedar in the middle notes to provide a sporty and masculine presentation. The hints of floral coming through the various notes help keep it from becoming too strong or overwhelming. Musk and oakmoss in the base add a touch of masculine energy that tame the sweetness in the other notes.
Suggested Use: For long-lasting fragrance that you can carry throughout the day and to minimize the need for reapplying, focus on your pulse points behind your ears, at the base of your neck and on your wrists as well as warmer areas of the body, such as behind the knees and inside the elbow. These are the best places to apply your fragrance since the scent intensifies by the warmth of your body.
