1. Description

History

Kolonya originated in Turkey - then part of the Ottoman Empire - in the 19th century, when cologne was first imported from Germany. The new perfume inspired new methods of scent-making, and supplanted rosewater as the primary fragrance in Turkey. Other scents were later added to the imported perfume, creating a uniquely Turkish product.

Makeup and usage

Kolonya is composed of ethyl alcohol between 60 and 80 percent, water, and fragrance. In addition to being used as a cologne, it is commonly used as a disinfectant or hand sanitizer. Traditionally, the aroma derives from fig blossoms, jasmine, rose or citrus ingredients.
