As you may have seen in yesterday’s vlog, we have traveled Cologne for 10 hours to visit the house of 4711. A real experience when it comes to cologne. 4711 is a perfumery house over 225 years old. They were one of the first specialized in eau de cologne, and they still are. We had the possibility to discover everything from the house and I can tell that, if you are a real perfumery lover, you really shouldn’t miss the experience.
A little bit of the history; eau de cologne was once created to freshen up during the day. Taking a shower every day wasn’t normal by then, so people always had a bottle of cologne with them to fresh up. They kept it even in their boots due the long and small bottles they used to have. The perfume house in Cologne is just like the original one from 1792, but restored and modernized after world war two.
To celebrate their anniversary, they created a unique fragrance ‘4711 Remix Cologne‘ which will be launched by the end of April this year. So this is a little teaser for you ;-). This cologne has an explosion of oranges, so the fresh summer feeling is all on your body after spraying it. We cannot wait to have the bottle ourselves, because summer can really begin by now..!
