Spanning 225 years, 4711 is the epitome of a timeless fragrance.
The exact composition of the scent was a closely guarded secret back then, and to this day it remains undisclosed – and unchanged. Similarly, the iconic hexagonal bottle has largely remained unaltered. Originally designed in 1820 by Peter Heinrich Molanus, at the time the flat-edged bottle shape (designed so for ease of transportation) was so groundbreaking that it is now referred to as the Molanus bottle. In keeping with this respect of tradition, the “new” logo of the scent was created in 1900, and has not been changed since.
