About this deal

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I could easily imagine myself carrying around a little bottle in my bag to freshen up during a hot day in the city or the next conference I attend, especially since it's so inoffensive to spray, even around my slightly fragrance sensitive partner. I still enjoy it after a shower in hot weather, and it really won’t interfere with any other scent I may apply. This is such a classy, light yet full of depth Spring or Summer fragrance, the Basil and Cedar really blending to perfection.

Selected ingredients include lemon, bergamot and orange as well as lavender, rosemary, neroli and petitgrain. Nunca la habia olido, pero habia escuchado de ella, es un aroma genial tan natural, que pareciera que andas en un jardin o pradera que tiene naranjos o limones, o como si cortaras limones o apretaras las hojas y olieras tu mano.And let me tell you that stuff has some nose-unclogging qualities in it when you take a direct sniff like that. I mention this because there is history and nostalgia for me in this scent, but also because French can be snobs about perfume (rightfully so in many cases), and it passed the test in the case of the old bf's family. This unique scent is equally suited to either male or female wearers and its light, fresh citrus notes awaken the senses. Inspired by Johann Maria Farina, the creator of the original Eau de Cologne, a merchant named Wilhelm Mulhens acquired a license to trade under the name Farina and I keep a big bottle of this in the bathroom as I like to dab it on myself during the weekend if I’m staying at home and wanting a bit of nostalgia.

It's much more of a thing you'd use to make yourself feel fresh and clean for a little bit without trying to grab attention. I bought a 90mL with atomizer because I prefer spraying to splashing a bunch of fragrance into my hand and applying it. The secret formula for 4711 Original Eau de Cologne is still appreciated across the globe today, making this ‘aqua mirabilis’ an unparalleled classic. Each of the Remix fragrance variations highlights one of the main components of the well-known fragrance classic.The differences are subtle; 4711 is lighter and more floral, while Imperiale is richer and more herbal, thanks to good doses of rosemary and verbena. Interestingly, the realism put off my partner, who said it "didn't smell like a perfume" and that it smelt to him as if he had rubbed a plain spice or herb directly onto his skin rather than a fragrance blend. Eau de cologne, presented in 25ml traditional watch shaped bottle, it fits into any pocket for on-the-go use. Useless as a scent as many intend it today (super projection, everlasting longevity, possibly choking everyone else in the room), the original 4711 is a wonderful fabric scent, or a superb olfactory comfort when you need to smell something nice, clean and invigorating. You just need to realize that it is not a cologne meant for others; it is a 'me' cologne that is meant for you to enjoy.

But when needs a pure fragrance made from the ingredients of our region/farmland and continent, that won't disappoint or offend anyone, that is wearable in any weather and for any occasion, surely knows where to reach. The brand has been expanded to various other perfumes and products besides the original Echt Kölnisch Wasser, which has used the same formula for more than 200 years. It's in a way more masculine and old-fashioned than 4711, but still with similar longevity problems. this is definitely a classic and a must have for collectors in their archive ( but it isn't a necessity hehe, did I just contradict myself?

Always thought the citrus opening was the best thing about this fragrance, but the juniper/lavender combo was reminiscent of an air freshener.

The smell (to me: opens with fruit tingles, dries down to a vaguely pleasant lemon peel) isn't really the point, but the act of applying it, the ritual of anointing or whatever. In addition, as we give you the option to choose what best suits your needs from several sellers, you have the power to decide so you can make your purchase as you wish. The longevity on me seems about 6 hours (almost imperceptible at that point but still there--I apply fairly heavily when I want a long wear--cologne by its nature isn't meant to last a long time, so complaints on this aspect baffle me a bit.It stays on my dresser now, wouldn't be without it's fabulous, light, summer memories of Detroit, and Germany in 1965. It's difficult for me (untrained n00b nose) to pick out the individual components of the fragrance, but I do definitely get citrusy. Beautifully packaged with the iconic turquoise and gold label it’s as popular as ever with both men and women.
