4711 takes its name from the street number of the building in Glockengasse, Cologne where this historic fragrance was created in 1792. The Original Eau de Cologne is formulated from the essential oils of citrus fruits blended with Rosemary, Lavender and Neroli. This unique scent is suited to both sexes and its ultra-fresh citrus notes instantly revive the wearer. 4711 is so light that it actually compliments other fragrances. A truly unique time honoured classic.
