it sort of smelled like a garbage bag full of old fruit and oranges!
i dunno. i think alot of people are fascinated by its history and all....i don't care about that, i was just trying the scent out
Many years ago, when they used to give people refresher towelettes on planes, they used to smell of 4711. I guess that's where I got used to it. I do understand the "sourness" you mention, I just don't find it disagreeable.
Also, tonight 4711 is making a liar out of me. I bought a cheap bottle of it for my wife a while back. So I sprayed some on the back of my hand two hours ago. And it's still there!
Which means that other threads I've written are now incorrect. When I wrote that Neroli Sauvage only outlasts 4711, I was wrong. It now outlasts nothing relative to this bottle of 4711.
