Which fragrances were popular back then among senior officers? Are some of these fragrances still available and popular?
Kellerman leaned over to light the cigar. Douglas was not yet used to the way that the German officers put Cologne on their faces after shaving, and the perfume surprised him.
It's a classic unisex perfume and your reaction suggests what age of person now might go for it. Men certainly use it, especially those old enough to have served in the war were using it in their older years.Frech wrote:4711 was and is used by grannys. I don´t think Steiner did ....
