To the Centennial
I count a hundred years now
And get older every day;
The fragrance king Jacques Guerlain
Raised me in the tank
Since then many things have happened
But I don't know anything about it,
At the moment, when for money lets me go
A merchant named Vuitton.

I'll wash your lemon tide,
Plenty of it,
And already reasonably good spirits
In scorching hot sunshine

It's a real treat As short as it may be,
Aromas from the south are available
To please the nose.

And because I won't be here for long Will I become shy in the long run,
A gush from my jug Dir
Ignite life anew.

I do not know the pain of death And not dying hardships,
I will live forever Every day redness.
+++

With thanks to Morgenstern, whose turtle gave me the basis.

The ultimate luxury...
Why? Because it is such an expensive, beautiful smell but gone in minutes! Usually, an Eau de Cologne by nature only really consists of top notes. So in this case, it resembles many of the other famous EdC's of the past (including 4711). Still it's a beautiful one, and very naturally made, with real citrus oils.
The story goes that Jacques Guerlain wanted to recreate the smell of his time spent in the luxurious French Riviera. This Eau de Cologne is not meant to be worn as a perfume, but merely splashed or sprayed on throughout the day (at any occasion), when feeling ill, when stepping out of the bath or shower, when walking out the door, before meeting people, at home, at work... wherever! The ultimate luxury... and the smell? A perfect citrus floral combination! Citron (a bitter, rough relative of the lemon, slightly more sour and fruity - and which in reality smells somewhere between a lime and a grapefruit), paired up with a good dose of orange blossom to hold it up. Then, in less than an hour, gone! But then the fun starts again when you re-apply. Very decadent! This is what rich people use just for fun!

I would recommend wearing this the most during the summer months, or better still, if you live somewhere hot. Otherwise it's just pure luxury, but still quite beautiful. Like pure, freshly-squeezed lemonade and ice in an elegant, decadent glass bottle!
