Eau de Cologne

I went on a one-day school trip to Cologne way back when I was 12. As a souvenir we were all given a miniature bottle of the classic Eau de Cologne 4711, which I never used as I thought it was too old-ladyish. Then over the ridiculously hot weekend I was looking for a perfume which was slightly more refreshing than my normal spray, and I came up with this. It was a bit tricky to apply (how do you get a very strong eau de toilette onto the back of your neck without spilling it all over you?) but it was perfect for the weather and I will definitely be using it more often. Plus the bottle's an incredibly handy size-even the smallest clutch would have room for this baby.
