Chabrawichi 555 cologne

Here's a nice, old, and very CHEAP Egyptian cologne which is now available here in Canada - well, at least here in Montreal. I remember seeing it in stores in the Gaza Strip when I was in the IDF back in 1973-1989, and it sold for sooooooooo little back then. It has a lavender/lemony scent, it's very refreshing in hot weather, and it's also good for use after a shower.

A handsome bottle. And nary a graphic designer (iPad, ironic geek-glasses, secret yearning to be snapped by The Sartorialist) in sight.

Can't help noticing it's called "Eau de Cologne Mary", though of course I wouldn't let that deter me from getting a bottle.

Agreed....nice bottle. And it sounds like a pleasant light scent as well. It is undoubtedly not available here in Tampa....not a whole lot is....

I have a very close friend who brings it back for me from Egypt when he goes to visit his family there.

Gordon, it has a VERY light and pleasant scent.

Michael, the "Mary" eau de cologne is the version for women. My wife hates the scent of it, but I think it's quite nice. My friend's girlfriend wears it sometimes after a shower.

I want to purchase some Chabrawichi 555 cologne. Does anyone know where one can purchase it in Montreal CANADA, or the US. I bought some years ago in Egypt and have been online looking for some for the past few years. If you know please let me know.
