German 4711 Original Eau de Cologne by Maurer & Wirtz
Iconic, historical & one of a kind, the very first fragrance in history, eau de cologne 4711 was created in 1792. The world’s oldest & perhaps most treasured cologne is still produced in Germany to this day.
According to legend, on 8 October 1792, a Carthusian monk made a wedding gift for the merchant Wilhelm Mülhens (1762-1841): the secret recipe of a so-called “aqua mirabilis”, a “miracle water” for internal and external use. Mülhens then founded a small factory at Cologne’s “Glockengasse” and established the first “Eau de Cologne” as a remedy.
Originally used to “keep the dark away by cleansing & protecting, this is deeply comforting & calming, brightening the mood instantly!
It clears away negative energy, rids an area of bad spirits, attracts good spirits & revitalizes those who are suffering from psychic distress. This is the ORIGINAL “Florida Water”.
Top notes are orange oil, peach, basil, bergamot and lemon; middle notes are cyclamen, lily, melon, jasmine and bulgarian rose; base notes are patchouli, tahitian vetiver, musk, sandalwood, oakmoss and cedar.
A must have vintage pure fragrance made from the ingredients of my ancestors homeland. This is distinctly European, fresh rather than perfumey, won’t disappoint or offend anyone & that is wearable in any weather, for any occasion.
There are currently only 3 bottles available as this is extremely difficult to import from Germany. I work with & wear 4711 daily and hope it brings you same the refreshing clarity as it brings me!
