There is a new perfume brand in our neighbourhood, but this one
is coming from Slovakia - 1907
|The still of 1907 collection - BL'eauOG|
I recommend you to forget for the moment the traditional perfume brands that are coming from the Western Europe and from traditional places such as France, Italy and United Kingdom. The one should pay the attention now to the Central Europe and the small country of Slovakia. Maybe Slovakia doesn't fit to be a country of the perfume world to some, but I would like to tell you a little story from history Actually, it was the Central Europe that was the source of the modern perfumery (maybe?) because the first formulas were created there. Hungarian Water - the first scent that used the alchocol was for the Ungarian queen Elisabeth. Aqua Admirabilis by the monks of Florence was conceivied in the base of Alps and what is most important, in the 1907, the first Cologne water was made in Koln by Johan Maria Farina. Eau de Cologne is still produced in Koln by te 8th generation of the Farina family. The most famous users were Napoléon Bonaparte, Gandhi, Vittorio Emanuelle ll., Princess Diana... After all, maybe we can talk about the fragrant heritage of the area from where 1907 perfume brand is descending from. Second important thing is that Karlovi Vary were famous for their baths and that is prety close to Kosice, the home of 1907.
