When I was young - so much younger than today - all perfume was called in Dutch "Odeklonje". At high school I learned that 'Odeklonje' is derived from French 'Eau de Cologne'. Literally 'Water from Cologne'. Köln (French 'Cologne') is a city in Germany. Treasures like this made me the curious man I am today. Always curious what is hidden behind, above, underneath, in or ... - there must be more - ...

Another treasure: Dutch "romertof"  is derived from German 'Römertopf'. Literally 'Roman pot'.

Enjoy your Christmas.

P.S. For G: song
