The term cologne came from the German city Cologne, Germany. It was originally mixed by a man named Johann Maria Farina in the early 18th century. In contemporary American English language the term cologne is now used for fragrances for men.
There are many types of cologne and they are made from a variety of different oils, alcohol, water and extracts. Some types are the following: lemon, grapefruit, blood orange, orange, tangerine, clementine, bergamot, lime, bitter orange, neroli, lavender, thyme, oleaster, olive, jasmine, petitgrain, oregano, and tobacco.
One of the oldest and still produced fragrances, originating from Cologne, Germany in 1792 is 4711 by Muelhens. Yes, we carry that one too!!!
During the 18th century cologne and fragrances in general, were only for the wealthy upper class folk. A bottle of a fragrance used to cost half the annual salary of a civil servant.
