4711 - A World Famous Number : In 1794, during the time of the French occupation, the commander General Daurier decreed that all buildings were to be given consecutive numbers in order to eliminate the unsystematic jumble of street names and to make it easier for him to billet his troops. Glockengasse was numbered by a French soldier, who - as the story goes - painted the numbers onto the front doors in passing without dismounting from his horse. And this is how the premises belonging to Wilhelm Muelhens received the number 4711, which later became the name of this Kölnisch Wasser. The US star designer Tom Ford has been inspired by the classic eau de cologne and has launched a new perfume. His new luxury perfume NEROLI PORTOFINO smells familiar. Tom Ford has blended bergamot, lemon, orange, lavender, rosemary, neroli and amber. Our classic product 4711 Original Eau de Cologne consists of bergamot, lime, mandarin, lavender, rosemary and neroli.
