      We enjoyed learning the history of the first perfumes and having an immersive experience seeing the building first hand and smelling a few examples of the ingredients. Our guide did a great job answering questions and was clearly very knowledgable.
      The true history of 'Eau de Cologne'!

      Very interesting to find out everything about the origins of the oldest perfume house in the world! The guided tour was a bit of history, but also practical. Lovely to see the ancient bottles and perfume production artifacts in the cellars of the original building from 1709, and do a smelling exercise ourselves! All in all, a memorable experience!

      The tour is pretty informational and the price is fair with a free sample of 5ml original perfume. Good to know that #4711is not the same as Farina.

      I had no idea of the history of Eau de Cologne and the links to the city. It was not only an insightful tour, but as a perfume lover it was wonderful to have the chance to learn the different notes etc in the process.
