Mom and perfume
I can only darkly remember that my mother got this fragrance at some point as a gift.
It was a whole skincare line. Shower gel, body lotion and the perfume.

The shower gel and lotion were actually used up, but the perfume must have sat in my mother's bedroom almost unused for 25 years.

I remember well the pretty flacon with the spherical gold shiny cap, it was not a sprayer, but a fragrance to dab on.

Mum never uses perfume, supposedly it gives her a headache. These days there's a bottle of 4711 in the bathroom.

I don't remember much about the scent, I was just a kid back then. But it smelled very pleasant, like ladies in evening dress, with pearl necklaces, beautiful make up and great hairstyles, like we saw on TV from time to time. Yes, those ladies in their 80s gowns could have definitely worn this fragrance.

What has become of the Flacon, I do not know unfortunately. Would be nowadays determined a rarity.

Chypre roughneck with velvety background
I didn't know that 4711's perfume was exclusive. I thought it was my own brand. But now I found it by chance and can "report" (it's 15 ml of perfume in OVP in an oblong, polished bottle).
For me there is not the slightest doubt that it is a "vintage", a clever chypre and vedammt good smells A real "roughneck", I thought, when I gave my wrist a tiny drop of it and held my nose to it. An armada of hyacinths (the deep blue ones) stretches their flower heads towards me, wrapped in a strong blackcurrant note, the peaches indicated are, thank God, only sparse.
Lily of the valley with "greenest foliage" all around ringing from far away.
With the roses and carnations, the onslaught of aromas "calms down" a little, persists for a long time and slowly becomes from "roughneck" to "noble chypre", although it still bubbles under the surface.
Then, after hours, "Premiere" becomes darker and softer. It's as if a grass mat is gradually turning into dark blue velvet. Vetyver, woods and dense moss form this "carpet" with a soft pile.
I can also see that there must have been a hangover sitting on it not so long ago, because the "animalistic" traces are recognizable.
But above all it is the cedars and the moss that I can see well "under" the flowers and fruits.
They are the velvety background of an unusual and very unique chypre fragrance, which I enjoy to still own. "Premiere" is a fragrance bought a long time ago in a DROGERIE that is no longer available even in well-assorted perfumeries.
