Summary: My father, Hugo, who passed in 1988, wore 4711 until his dying day. I starting using it myself at first to remember him, but then it became my 1 and only fragrance. I will wear it until I pass. My children will NEVER forget this scent either. BUT...I'm just 50, so I look forward to using 4711 cologne and products for MANY years to come. Oh, by the way I am a woman.
Summary: My wife purchased 4711 by Muelhens - EDC for Women after buying the men's version as a gift for a friend. She loved the warm, unique blend in the men's and felt it should be sold more as a unisex cologne for both the male and female. It has a wonderful citrus scent, rather lemony, and she loved it so much she also decided to buy the scented tissues as well as the shower gel.
Summary: My sisters boyfriend brought this home to her from Germany in 1970 when he was in the service. I have loved it ever since. It is not a heavy true "perfume" smell, but a light mixture of something flowery, herbally, and fruity all in one. Can be used whenever, and has good staying power.
Summary: This splash is " GREAT ". When I'm at work and other people (women the most), ask me what I have on, I tell them Muelhens. They ask, " WHAT!!!!", where can they get it for gifts. I like it for the fresh, clean scent and the big 27oz size it comes in. Honestly, this is the only cologne I use. Great smell at a great price.
Summary: It's been around forever, and yes, longevity is a problem, but back before air conditioning was ubiquitous, Europeans would splash 4711 on to cool themselves down. Light and citrusy, never offensive, a classic unisex eau de cologne, 4711 has fans the whole world round. If only it lasted a while longer.
