4711 Eau de Cologne — use it as a mosquito repellent

I  discovered, purely by accident, that 4711 cologne for men can be used as a mosquito repellent.  I like to sleep with my bedroom window open and one night I was attacked by mosquitoes.  Having no repellent at hand, in desperation, I splashed on some 4711, and lo and behold, the mosquitoes vanished.
