4711 House, Cologne

4711 is the Eau de Cologne brand of Mäurer & Wirtz a company of the Grünenthal group owned by the family Wirtz and is produced in Stolberg near Aachen, Germany. On October 3, 1794, in view the French troops standing just outside of Cologne, the city council approved of the plan of the guard-committee that all houses in the city were to be numbered without exception. At the beginning of the 18th century, Italian expatriate Johann Maria Farina (1685–1766) created a new fragrance and named it Eau de Cologne(“water from Cologne”), after his new residence in Cologne. In the course of the 18th century, the fragrance became increasingly popular and continued to grow to what we know today.
