About this deal

But if you want to splash it under your arms or all over after a shower for a quick wake-up pick-me-up, definitely go for it. Neroli and petitgrain provide a gentle foundation, an homage to the fragrant orchards that line the coast.

Soon after, Wilhelm opened a manufactory in the Glockengasse (meaning "Clock Tower Square") area of Cologne, Germany. Being the first cologne created, and as a bonus, was very affordable, wanted this as part of my collection. This historic cologne has the most glorious fragrance, and somehow manages to be calming and revitalizing at the same time.

Interestingly, the realism put off my partner, who said it "didn't smell like a perfume" and that it smelt to him as if he had rubbed a plain spice or herb directly onto his skin rather than a fragrance blend. It’s no secret that opinions are sharply divided by the scent known as ‘Echt Kölnisch Wasser’, or ‘Original Eau de Cologne’.

But still pharmacists cannot dispense the item as a pharmaceutical benefit unless it has the necessary Authority code.It all goes back to the time of the French occupation of 1796, by which time French expansion into Germany west of the Rhine had extended to the city of Cologne. It’s actually really nice mixed with a basic white musk in the hot weather when you really can’t bear to wear much else. Original Eau de Cologne, launched in 1792, is apparently the cologne of all colognes - it's the one that started it all. I feel as though I may have taken its presence for granted as a child; after all, it was always there. I'll wear this when I want something (temporarily) fresh that works *with* me, rather than a more "opinionated" composition.

Having compared them side by side, there are *slight* differences; the vintage presents more of the rosemary and lavender elements of the scent, while the modern formulation seems to push the citrus and neroli to the fore.For me is interesting that some reviewers can smell some of the other notes wrongly mentioned by Fragrantica. Avon Sweet Honesty must share some notes--it's like a powdery and feminine version, also great for hot weather, bedtime, and kids. i thought this was like unisex old spice but it seens to be the go to day perfume of the upper class. Overall very fresh and soapy, a little airy, a little green - a citrus cologne delivering a "barber-fresh" aroma.
