    Interesting presentation. It makes me wonder how many perfumes were used by the Headspace Capture reconstitution to begin with.

    Too bad the presentation repeats ahistorical myths - both the story of Hungary Water and Elizabeth (a composite character drawn from a variety of historical figures woven into a fiction) and 4711 (a complete fabrication, as 4711 was merely a cheap imitation of the genuine Eau de Cologne created by Johann Maria Farina in the early 18th century. 4711 was sold until the 1880s - when the company lost a landmark trademark court case - under a pseudo-Farina name, like dozens of other forgeries.
