Eau de Toilette Naming Conventions

Khiva: Toilette_1

What’s in a name?

These Uzbekistan Eau de Toilette names drawn from popular male mythology Mafia Don, Super Cosa Nostra; Big Boss; Super King; Secret Service; the Matrix; status objects Mercedes; Pure Cigar; Euro (but no US Dollar – how the mighty have fallen); and eclectic 2Bone that I’m pretty sure is pronounced two be one rather than to bone, although you never know; and the delightfully named Walking Barry.

Khiva: Toilette_2

Of note: apart from a token nod to the French with Parfum D’or, Marquis all names are English. Nothing in Uzbek/Russian/Tajik.
