1794 Two years after Muehlens`wedding, Cologne is occupied by French troops. According to legend, 4711 ultimately owes ist 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.

Muehlens, who does not wish to reveal the secret recipe behind his Kölnisch Wasser, simply begins marketing it as a fragrance rather than a medicament.
