So yesterday I went to a small supermarket chain in Turkey called Son, and they where selling the popular lemon Cologne for just $ 0,86 for 400ML.

Having read about this stuff online before, and seeing it being used on YouTube I decided just to bring some stock back. So the only thing I can say it really smells to lemon, it might actually be a little similar to Arko perhaps but less strong scent I think.

So I have understood this stuff can be used as an astringent, you just apply it before your aftershave balm Wink Its even to be said to be effective against insect bites, and it can disinfect your hands.

If you have spent much time in Turkey, its offered to guests after dinner. It covers up the odors of cooking etc. If you look closer, that stuff is like 80% alcohol. If you use it after shaving its like the hell fires furnace on your face.

But, I like to use it say after lunch as a freshening up, a little on the neck and lots on the hands. There are hundreds of mfrs of that stuff in Turkey, and they all specialize in Lemon scent.

I had one bottle and it lasted me about 4 yrs.

My abiding memory of the stuff was on a long bus trip heading south from Istanbul. The bottle was handed round the passengers by the attendant as a refresher (or possibly hand sanitiser - I'm not sure).
The rest of the bus journey was lemon scented...

Having ridden buses in Greece and Turkey in the summer, anything lemon scented would have been most welcome. And that's all I'll say about that.

Pe Re Ja is the Turkish cologne I have - very lemony-scented and refreshing. I love it.

This is the one kind I've tried, and I would order it again; nice change of pace to what most of us are used to.

Old School Steel is right , its a cologne not an aftershave and it will burn your face off if used like that.

I want some too. At that price I might afford two of small bottles. Awesome!
Any plans of formulating your own aftershave with these? Tempting..

Nice change of pace indeed

I have been trying for months to get my hands on the Turkish Evin lemon cologne, im starting to believe the only way to get it is to rent a private jet, fly to Turkey and find the manufacturer.  Sherlock

Sold in my local supermarket (Bristol UK) for £2.8/250 ml. I have both Evin and Myrsol Lemon, scent is very similar but more alcohol in the Evin.

Thanks for the comparison, I have been wondering if the Myrsol lemon was comparable with the Evin. I'm in the USA and we just can't find it anywhere, none of the web stores carry it.

Duru is identical to Evin and can be picked up cheaply on ebay.com , search for item # 231505419141. Duru is actually made by the same firm making Arko.

I live in Turkey and we use these stuff as a tradition. It has meanings like welcome, or bye bye when you serve it to guests. Recently this stuff got popular among the young generation with the brands offering different interesting scents like Rebul, Pasabahce etc. I love the stuff from Pe Re Ja and Taris and Duru (some of these brands have magnificent lavender colognes, too) 

If you have any questions about Turkish colognes or Arko, Derby stuff, I will be more than happy to help TSN members here that I've learned so much from. Smile

When living in Amsterdam, I picked up about 6 to 8 different brands of Kolonya. I am fortunate that my local Turkish barber always has a bottle on his shelf, so I get a free application and shoulder massage with every hair cut....

I picked up a Duru Limon kolonya today. I do enjoy the sweet scent, the Spanish S3 colonia has a similar fragrance...
