1709 Original Eau de Cologne Fragrance Reviews


This is a really "fresh-up"-cologne. It has an incridible list of very famous customers as it is the oldest Parfum still available in the world, ranging from french and german kings and queens to princess Diana and president Bill Clinton.I also like it a lot. Is has a very nice fresh fragrance, but as it is a cologne, you really have to splash it on to have some longivity.


my uncle bought me the mini size of this cologne. Very nice and it makes me feel really comfortable


I wanted to sample the original Farina cologne and discovered in the process that there are two distinct varieties out there.

I've just side-by-side tested Roger & Gallet's "Extra Vieille" and the 1709 Original by Farina, Köln ( - and they are very different.

Simply put, R+G is 4711 with extra citrus and a pinch of Nag Champa (to my nose at least - could be the clove), whereas the Original (current formula) is much more floral and green. I've always liked 4711, so naturally I like R+G's take on the classic eau de cologne, but the Original is much more elegant and subtle.


Thank you, Fragrantica, for adding this perfume to your database. (my request)
It's an honor to be a first one to review this historical and very special perfume.

I have always thought that 4711 was the real old original eau de cologne. How wrong i was.
Almost 100 years earlier, in 1709, the italian parfumer Farina came to Koln and created there his wonderful perfume, which reminded him of a beautiful Italian fresh morning..
It's excactly how it smells.
I've been to the museum/shop of Farina Maison in Koln, Germany. It's the oldest perfume museum in the world!! When you buy a perfume bottle you also get a pretty list of all rich and famous clients of this perfume. Well, 300 years of royal clients.. Napoleon Bonaparte used to pour a bottle a day (!!) over his body, even kept a bottle in his boot!!
The formule is still unchanged and kept in secret through more than 300 years!!!
I hope they will add my name to that famous list of clients someday haha!!!!
