Great-grandmother of all EdC... My grandma loved it
An ancient classic in the field of Eau de Cologne. Not only for refreshment. I (born 1964) can still remember some things from my childhood. Quite a few, mostly older, ladies used 4711 Original Eau de Cologne, in summer for refreshment or even for headaches. They then generously put eau de cologne on a handkerchief and then rubbed the handkerchief several times over their forehead. Apparently it helped. About the fragrance itself: Strong at first, but pleasant with a hint of lemon. Light green notes are noticeable. In the course of time, the rosemary makes it a bit spicier. Lavender is added, but more to round off the fragrance. The scent is and remains very pleasant until the end. My conclusion: An original with a high recognition value. There are already numerous Eau de Cologne on the market. Some may subjectively be as good or even better, quite possible. A matter of taste. However, this EdC has additional, special characteristics, e.g. it also creates a certain feeling of well-being, you can rub yourself with it almost everywhere. It smells very pleasant and refreshing, especially in summer, very good. Some people still use it today for headaches. For me it belongs in my collection. Haltbsrkeit, with me after under 1 hour unfortunately end.
