This week I'm loving....

4711 Cologne review
Muelhens 4711 Eau de Cologne.
4711 is cited as the original Eau de Cologne, dating all the way back to 1792. It's something of an icon, with Napolean reportedly being a fan & Holly Golightly wearing it in Truman Capote's book, Breakfast at Tiffany's. 
I absolutely love that it's steeped in such heritage and is a step away from today's fragrances. The unusual turquoise and gold bottle, complete with seal reiterates this.
I've tried spritzer perfumes, ones you dab on and solid fragranes before but this was my first experience with a splash cologne & it felt strange to apply so liberally. The scent itself is wonderfully refreshing, a blend of citrus, lavender and rosemary with neroli being the most evident to my nose. It isn't particularly long lasting but I've come to quite enjoy the ritual of applying so that isn't a huge issue for me. I'm planning on wearing this throughout the summer. It's perfect for the new season and the best thing about it is that it's so reasonably priced. The only trouble is that it's unisex so I'm hoping Mr. Skin Deep doesn't decide to pilfer too much of it!
