Colonia instead of Corona, No. 10: Same, same, but different!
4711 also offers a cologne with a modern label and the name "Nouveau Cologne". I have never smelled this artifact and have no plans to ever test it. Hold by grace: Yuzu, lychee and blackcurrant! Heliotrope, Peony and Stink Ash! Do you want to smell that in a cologne? Answer to two thirds "no", to the remaining third "neither in a cologne nor anywhere else". Anyway: What would coriander and Trudchen say about it?

On the other hand, the "Remix Cologne Anniversary Edition" is the real "New 4711" for me. There is no fragrance I know of (not even one from 4711) that is so close to the "Regular", that reproduces its unmistakable sound so precisely, including the rosemary note. At the same time, however, it proves to be ingeniously different, more modern, rounder, a touch (but really only a wönzig little touch) sweeter and a Mü (but also only a Mü) longer lasting. At no point does it look like a tried and tested copy. It radiates from itself, and I'm sure you would like it even if you don't know the reference "Regular". It reminds me of a piano concerto by Mozart, once played in the style of old music with harpsichord and small chamber orchestra, once with concert grand piano and modern symphony orchestra. One can leave open which of the two fragrances corresponds to which variant; I am only interested in the Same-Same-but-Different-Effect.

If you believe the scent pyramid, this hussar prank essentially consists of an exchange of Nerolis for Petitgrain - and is the responsibility of perfumer duo Kalle/Schaller. Schaller seems to be a lucky choice for 4711, as he's not only responsible for this fragrance (best known to me from the "Remix" series), but also for "Blood Orange & Basil" (best known to me from the "Acqua-Colonia" series). Mrs. Kalle seems to be a 4711 house perfumer and has so far created a jasmine flanker, among other things. It could be that she has brought a delicate touch of this blossom into this composition here.

Since it is a limited edition, you will never know if this fragrance really had what it takes to match the classicism of the original or if it contains too much "contemporary taste". A colleague of mine said earlier (unasked) that she heard a "sunscreen note" on me, which she didn't mean negatively, but which in itself wasn't typical of the cologne. Nevertheless, I'd venture to say that the Anniversary Edition, in the long run, would have been the chance for Mäurer&Wirtz to establish a second, more modern 4711. Perhaps even, with all love for the original and all aversion to murdering classics for the sake of modern "reformulation", to replace the "regular" one day. But it probably won't happen like that.

For me a very, very nice cologne, to use without hesitation on every occasion. I would like to give 8.75 points and round up to 9 points out of sympathy, since this is not possible, although it does not reach the beauty of e.g. Harry Lehmann's "New York"
* *

In the bonus track part I would like to say a few words about three citric colognes of the Turkish company Eyüp Sabri Tuncer, which I had the opportunity to test about 2 years ago. About the tradition of the Turkish colonyas I should have written something in No. 1 of this series, and EST is one of the very big and traditional Turkish colognes. I would have liked to buy and order test fragrances again (also for this series here), but EST seems to have delivery problems (because the colognes are also used for disinfection) and furthermore I didn't find the stuff "before Corona" neither in Berlin nor on the internet (with delivery to Germany). Strange, with the many Turkish shops and inhabitants in the capital. I gladly accept tips for the purchase.

10a. "Klasik Limon" by EST is a hard lemon, yellow, very simple cologne with a Wienerwald refreshing note. I gave it a 6.0 grade and just wrote a statement. You don't have to test it.

10b. "Okyanus" is a citric-aquatic blue cologne, which is already much better, and which I rated with a 7.0 statement. I can even remember the scent well, but I definitely don't think it's a "must have" for testing.

10c. "Cesme Limonu" is the green-tangy sister of "Klasik" and simple, straight, quite volatile and very, very well done! I had dedicated a short comment to this fragrance and gave it a 7.5. However, at that time I had probably used a different scaling than for the present "Colonia-statt-Corona" series. I would have to give at least 8.0 now.

10d. "Bodrum Mandalinasi", the "Tangerine from Halicarnassus" is a just as beautiful, just as simple, just as well with a from today's point of view somewhat stingy 7,5 statement provided Mandarine-Cologne from the same house.

Any fragrant friend who gets "Cesme Limonu" or "Bodrum Mandalinasi" in front of his nose, when changing planes at Istanbul airport in duty free, at a Turkish friend's home or wherever, is strongly recommended to try these two colognes. EST has a lot more colonyas on offer (e.g. an Amber-Cologne), some of which do not meet the criteria of this test series (because they are not citric or otherwise fresh), and some of which I have not yet seen.

Mild due to unripe bitter oranges
4711 gives its Echt Kölnisch Wasser a new polish, and that by vintage. The 2017er Remix I could still acquire by a good Souk offer of a very friendly Parfuma and was very curious.
I had rediscovered the original for myself a few years ago. One only has to adjust the picture 4711-soaked handkerchiefs with crochet border first in the head, then one recognizes the genius of this 225 years old citric-honest refreshment.
But now the 2017 Anniversary Edition stands next to the turquoise-golden bottle and wants to be measured against the original.
One left and one right sprayed.

The 2017 fragrance is of expected straightforwardness, it hardly changes. Immediately the citric freshness sets the tone and without the direct comparison the accentuation would have been almost hidden to me.
It starts softer, less cool and tart. I wonder if it's caused by the petitgrain This is actually obtained from immature bitter oranges, which would then have to be even more bitter than they already are. Nevertheless, the 2017 Remix is milder, more restrained, and more comfortable. I also don't feel the soapiness of the original in Anniversary 2017.

In times of revival of classic Colognes, 4711 understood the signs and bewitched with limited annual editions. For me very successful, well structured and very close to the classic, but more pleasing and gentle.
Two to three hours my forearm exudes the freshness that is welcome in summer, then the performance wears off and the fragrance remains close to the body.

The shape of the bottle corresponds to that of the original, except for the cap. It looks very pleasing and the label is bright, clear and yet classically designed. All around very successful.
House 4711 has found another fan.

The perfect travel companion. It just had to be hot enough.
Coimbra.

It is almost painfully bright, the sun stands on the pavements, on the roofs, on the walls, the heat makes the air above the ground flicker. And it's really hot, much too hot for the season, everyone moans, it hasn't rained for weeks, the hot wind carries fine dust with it and lets it dance in small vortices. It doesn't cool down, not even at night. We drink and drink and drink and still have the feeling that we are getting more and more papery.

Motorsport noise. Start of the Rallye Portugal centrally in the city centre, the first kilometres lead through the city. The engines roar and gasp even hotter exhaust gases into the hot air, the people stand close to the barriers. Everybody sweats, not everything smells good.

I do. I smell cool and gentle and of friendly citric notes, delicately distanced by lavender and the ethereal pinkish bizziness of rosemary. I wear the little stroke of genius of 4711, the Remix Cologne Anniversary Edition and having packed this bottle was one of the best travel scent decisions ever.

Unmistakably 4711 (which I highly respect, but never wanted to wear) and just not, because: The remix makes everything not only better, but also fantastically good. This bright lemon and neroli note in the head combines the two generations of fragrances, 4711 clearly, but 4711 has something pungent from the start, something drilling, a gruff freshness and - when the first stage has burned down - quickly becomes pale and a bit musty.

The remix stays true for much longer. It is and remains bright and cheerful, very discreet, but that should be the case with a cologne. He hardly seems to change, but this is not entirely true, it is his fine and delicate reserve that makes the gentle change in the fragrance difficult to grasp. Such a friendly fragrance, valuable and very natural.

It doesn't last long, at least not with me and not in the heat. So I reach for the pretty bottle over and over again and give me many, many generous sprayers, but for that colognes were created. I emptied almost half of the 100 ml bottle in the fourteen days and don't regret a single splash.

In short: A bargain for such a beautiful, natural eau de cologne without a grandma note!
I was just in the city and wanted to equip myself with all kinds of cleaning agents and bathing things at Müller when, due to toilet stone and chlorine smells of the household department, it occurred to me that FabianO had rated the Remix Cologne of 4711 so well and not as a better window cleaner. The normal 4711 is known and for me no longer a benchmark for a contemporary EdC, although it is definitely better than its reputation! Only with us in Germany 4711 has this grandma image.

I had no expectations to find this limited edition of 2017 yet, since the 2018 (smells like Orange Sanguine) is already out and apparently soon the 2019 version will follow.

But lo and behold: not only were there just three 100 ml vials left on the shelf, they were also reduced. From 19.95 to 7.95! Of course I took them all... Summer will hopefully come soon.

The fragrance is unmistakably 4711, but much more contemporary! A very positive surprise!
The granny neroli note is very reduced, the start citritsch fresh (natural aromas of lime, lemon and bergamot). A little orange and rosemary follow from the middle part. The petitgrain, a bit of lavender/floral notes remain for a good four hours after the fresh start and ensure a feeling of well-being and spring.
The durability is more than decent for an Eau de Cologne! Here the perfumers from the Glockengasse have succeeded a real hit! Too bad that this elegant "kölsche" water was not applied by default!

But well, my 300 ml will probably hold up a bit... If you catch this EdC anywhere else: strike blind! I can recommend this with a clear conscience and I generally do not buy a fragrance without having tested it.

What Tom Ford launches so all about Amalfi/Portofino/coastal or Whatever fragrances in different blue flacons is a joke, you put this EdC next to it! It is natural, classic, fresh, discreet and does the Eau de Cologne category credit. Acqua, the Parmas Ur-Colonia and all the Fords don't come with them. In terms of price this 4711 is a real "Aqua mirabilis", a miracle water! Unconditional recommendation to buy!

Maybe you'll get it somewhere in the sales! For me it was one of the bargains of the year...

An accomplished update
One of the best 4711's to come out in recent years, light and soft like baby cologne. This remix edition replaces the few rough and slightly outdated edges from the original blend with a well-balanced mix of citrus (lemon, orange, bergamot) and aromatic notes (lavender, rosemary, petitgrain).

A gentle, fresh, very easy to wear fragrance for the warmer months.

Successful reinterpretation of a classic
The German tradition house 4711 brings again and again beautiful new smells on the market, smells, which can be really seen and/or be smelled, far away from Muff and traditional. I find the classic infinitely pleasant in the heat - and by the way: The much more expensive "Les Colognes - Néroli" by Annick Goutal doesn't smell much different. With us 4711 real cologne water unfortunately has a grandma and old people's home image and therefore ekes out a somewhat unjustified existence in the corner.

A few years ago Nouveau Cologne came onto the market, which I liked. Apparently this one still exists, but I haven't seen a bottle in a store for a long time. Then I discovered the Acqua Colonia series, from which the beautiful Lime & Nutmeg was allowed to enter my collection three years ago. Wonder*Water for you I got last year at Easter from a dear perfuma as a gift and still like to wear it. I especially like this intense Pomelo note in it and it reminds me of beautiful winter days when we ate Pomelo with our then little son after skiing. *gg* Last year then the new edition of the turquoise-golden classic. I only discovered it towards the end of summer, when it was still warm, but not for long. So my bottle will last me at least this summer, probably longer.

Now to the fragrance: If you want to get something out of the new edition, you also have to get something out of the classic. ;) Because the two are very similar, especially in the beginning. Here the new smells like the old - like a concentrated load of bergamot. And I smell clearly orange blossoms, sunny and after sun milk, even if it is not indicated here. In the old 4711, however, orange blossom oil or neroli is in it. "Neroli, extracted from the blossom of bitter orange, has a calming effect on the base note and creates a positive mood" http://www.4711.com/index.php/de/echt-koelnisch-wasser2.html#der-duft. And the new edition is based on this:

"4711 Remix Cologne

How would cologne smell today?
Our reinterpretation unfolds new facets using traditional raw materials.
4711 Cologne in 2017 - recognizable and yet new! The fragrance is fresh & soft, lively & gentle, as well as timeless & modern, created for the intense moment and of lasting duration. Limited and only available from selected trading partners." http://www.4711.com/index.php/de/echt-koelnisch-wasser2.html#remix-cologne

I think Neroli also belongs to the traditional raw materials. ;)))) The fragrance is well described by 4711, only the one with the persistent duration is nonsense. It is and remains a cologne with a correspondingly short shelf life of 2-3 hours. Ideal on hot days, but the spraying itself is the most refreshing, the fresh notes only prolong this feeling of freshness. The orange blossom or neroli make the fragrance soft, floral and sun creamy, lavender also provides freshness and creaminess. I think lavender in fragrances can make a fragrance nice and soft, not always, but very often. Petigrain adds a delicate floral note, I don't smell orange and lemon directly, but a really tiny hint of rosemary.

What I don't quite understand is the limitation thing. Allegedly, only 24,000 pieces were produced - and that was last year. They should be gone by now. Or did he sell so badly? Müller hadn't had it since the end of last summer, when it was finally sold out for 10€, no longer available online at all. And suddenly there's a whole shelf full of it again, and it's also available in the online shop. And 4711 still lists him on the HP. Well, it would be nice if it would be included in the normal 4711 range - I think the fragrance deserved that.
