How Legends are born -
According to the legend, everything begins with a modest present: on 8th October 1792, the young merchant Wilhelm Muelhens receives a wedding gift from a Carthusian monk, namely a secret recipe for an “aqua mirabilis”, a miracle water for both internal and external use; an industrious merchant and entrepreneur, Muelhens opens a manufactory in the Glockengasse in Cologne soon after his wedding, and initially markets the miracle water as a health drink and vitalising elixir, to be drunk undiluted or mixed with wine

A Brand receives its Name
Two years after Muehlens’ wedding, Cologne is occupied by French troops. According to legend, 4711 ultimately owes its name to the organisational zeal of the occupiers: in order to put an end to the haphazardly allocated street names and to make it easier to find quarters for his troops, the commanding officer, General Daurier, has all the houses sequentially numbered. Muelhens’ house in the Glockengasse is given the house number 4711 – the name with which the Eau de Cologne is then later “christened”.
New - Unexpected - Miraculous - 4711 Wunderwasser
In spring 2014, a new fragrance was launched: 4711 Wunderwasser. The famous director Billy Wilder once said: "Anyone who doesn't believe in miracles isn't a realist." Miracles are something special, leaving us amazed for a moment. This is the inspiration behind 4711 Wunderwasser. The women's fragrance enchants with the delicate freshness of lotus blossom, and the men's fragrance inspires with richly faceted driftwood notes.
