No.4711 Colognes

Some scents claim to be timeless, but the No. 4711 fragrance family truly lives that claim, the No. 4711 Original Eau de Cologne tracing its lineage back to the late 18th century. The first mention of the formula termed it an “aqua mirabilis” or “miracle water” distilled, according to legend, by a Carthusian monk who gave the recipe as a wedding gift to the Cologne, Germany merchant Wilhelm Muelhens in 1792. Used internally as a tonic, reportedly effective against disease including the bubonic plague, the “aqua mirabilis” was also applied externally, and with that began the fascinating history of this continuously crafted fragrance. One of the first scents to be termed an “eau de Cologne,” or “water from Cologne,” No. 4711 received the numerical portion of its name from the actual address of the first factory that produced it — at Glockengasse No. 4711 in Cologne. Today the No. 4711 cologne range includes not only the No. 4711 Eau de Cologne that began it all, but also an intriguing variety of other fragrances that share the reputation for light and spirited profiles, some suitable for both men and women, and all sharing a pedigree that reaches back over 200 years.
