Can anyone recommend an Eau de Toilette for me to use as actual toilet water?  I plan to spray it into the toilet, to make the bathroom smell nice, and, also, fresh.  

So, obviously, I would like it to be, relatively, inexpensive.  

If I had money to p*ss away (pun intended, heh heh), I would use White Rose, by Floris.  

I was thinking maybe GFT, or, Chantilion Lux

At least over here they sell products tailored for that application, including some that claims to form a layer on top of the water in the bowl to prevent odours from coming through. Personally I just keep the bowl clean... saves money that way Tongue

Also; the original meaning of the term and thus purpose of EdT is closer to "grooming water", not "toilet water". It was a scent you put on when washing, dressing, etc instead of using soap and water as most people do today - as a side note there was during the fourteenth through sixteenth centuries a type of toilet water called "plague waters"that was supposed to drive away the bubonic plague, even if basic hygiene would probably have worked better for that purpose.

FYI eau de toilette's original purpose was not to actually scent the toilet itself.  When the term came into being, "toilette" was referred to as grooming or freshening one's self.  Of course I just wrote this without reading WegianWarrior's above comment!  

I would think that an EdT's ingredients are too volatile to sustain some sort of scent in the actual toilet.  You could possibly drop some essential oils in the water tank of the toilet, but even still those might be too volatile as well.

Anything liquid you drop in the tank is going to be gone with the second flush though? That water doesn't hang around.

That's true; I completely forgot about that! Unless you don't want to go the 2000 flushes/Chlorox route then maybe a little strainer bag with herbs or something? Or just turn on the fan and/or open the window.

You re-spray after each flush.

The point is not to mask the smell.  It is simply to make the bathroom smell like EdT.  It works, trust me. 

Also "to toilette" as in "to get ready/groom/wash up/etc." also including using the facilities, back then, as it does, today.

You need "Poo-Purri", the lavender one is nice. Yes I am completely serious, that's what it's called. You are actually supposed to spray it before you handle business, and it keeps the offensive odors in. It works too, better than air freshener after effects imo heh. No reason you couldn't spray before and after haha

Well, while I hate to suggest using my products in such a manner... I think you'll find the price for scent strength to be a very good value. Otherwise, maybe try the dollar store?

Quando, are you confused regarding the purpose of Edt? The intent isn't to scent the toilet bowl, toilet room, or toilet water... but rather the person. That said, there are a variety of ways to keep your bathroom smelling fresh without (figuratively) flushing money down the drain. One is to lightly soak cotton balls in scented oils - and discreetly place them in the bathroom. You should be able to mix a pleasing scent that will last far longer than every bathroom visit.

I have no confusion, at all, about the original purpose of EdT, which is exactly as I stated in previous posts, in this thread. This was the original purpose of this product.  Many still use it this way.  I was simply wondering if anyone, on this site, did, as this site appears to be mainly American.

Quando; EdT was developed several centuries BEFORE flushing toilets were reinvented in Europe. By pure logic the original purpose CAN NOT have been what you propose to do.

EdT can be traced back to late medivial time;  Queen Elisabeth of Hungary (1305–1380) created a mix of fragrant rosemary oil and alcohol that was known as "eau de la reine de hongrie", today considered to be the forerunner to the modern EdT. A couple of centuries later King of France Louis XIV (1638–1715) used a concoction of scents called "heavenly water" to perfume his shirts; It consisted of aloewood, musk, orange flower, rose water and other spices. The flushing toilet (aka WC) was developed into a usable form around 1775 and started being installed in fashionable houses around that time.

I bet they didn't have terlit paper back then though.
