Usage notes[edit]

For a background: in 1944 to 1970, the residents of Finland needed a specific permission (see viinakortti) in order to buy alcoholic beverages stronger than a limit which varied during the period. The permission was in principle granted to everyone over a certain age, but If a person was suspected of misuse or illegal trading, the permission could be withdrawn. In such situation or in order to avoid the risk of losing one's permission some people resorted to substitutes such as cologne, which contains 70..80 % alcohol.
