  • In 1709, a merchant invented, on the banks of the Rhine, one essence smelling "for a morning of spring in Italy after the rain"; It was Giovanni María Farina. In 1792, Wilhelm Mulher, believe your own scented water, using the name of Farina in what would be the first case of commercial piracy. After a trial, had to change the name to the Eau de Cologne Original N ° 4711, on rue des Carillons, from where it takes the name. This occurred 83 years after the Farina Eau de Cologne. This Italian invented an essence in an era in which people smelled badly; not the rich to bathe, garbage was pulled out of the window and houses almost did not have bathrooms. Their clients were aristocrats and rich, included Napoeon, today also, because that is expensive, compared to the 4711.

  • In the Czech Republic is always used, the traditional term "eau de Cologne", for any kind of perfume. In fact, the real "eau de Cologne" offers right here. You can buy it everywhere and in a variety of pack sizes and types. And of course, prices. Today's experts about the smell will be a disappointment. This is really about the smell of very traditional. Or, somewhat obsolete in terms of today's trends. However, it's a classic and a piece of history and especially traditions. In addition, it is a nice gift for friends. I definitely recommend at least a small bottle. Today there are versions for men and ladies. In the past, but I met a local guide, who shrewdly argued that it really "right" Cologne smells differently than those offered to tourists. And that is commonly sold. And immediately pulled the bottle, where the water was really pleasant perfume and scents. But I also argued that the price of this "right" colognes is significantly higher. Around 40 Euro per bottle. So, what then you can believe it:-) Cologne 4711, however, don't buy it, just as a nice diversion on a visit to the city.
