Fragrance Review - 4711 Original Eau de Cologne

I never expected to be reviewing one of the oldest fragrances available, and on top of that, I never expected it to be available so cheaply! 4711 is advertised as the ‘original eau de cologne’ and whilst there is supposedly an Italian fragrance that’s older, this one actually comes from Cologne, Germany, so it definitely wins in that department!

I mean it was on special anyway right?
