The 4711 brand – a rather unique name for a fragrance brand which originated in Germany and was founded by an Italian immigrant Johann Maria Farina, who introduced his very first fragrance in the early years of the 18th century under the brand name Eau de Cologne. After some serious family conflicts, the brand was eventually named 4711, Farina's family house number. 4711 developed a very specific style fragrance which still remains amongst the best around the world.
