After introducing in 2009 a collection of 5 nature-inspired twists destined in part to revitalize the 4711 Eau de Cologne classic and called Lemon & Ginger, Lavender & Thyme, Royal Riesling, Vetyver & Bergamot, Melissa & Verbena, the brand owned by Mäurer and Wirtz has introduced two new additions to the library of adapted Eaux de Cologne this spring 2010 called 4711 Acqua Colonia Blood Orange & Basil and Rhubarb & Clary Sage...
Blood Orange & Basile is described as a spicy citrus scent inspired by a holidays atmosphere which would be invigorating to pull out when the weather is cloudy and gray.
Rhubarb & Clary Sage is inspired by the scents of vegetables in the garden during one's childhood. The German copy stresses the fact rhubarb seems to have been forgotten in the country and now appears exotic.
The fragrances are available in 170 ml sizes in spray and splash bottles. In the summer of 2010, a travel bag and a 30 ml size will be proposed as well. A golden funnel invites customers to replenish their travel bottles from the larger bottle.
Prices: 39,50€ for the 170 ml flacon and 14,75€ for the 30 ml spray.
