An interesting article offering historical details about the career of the Mülhens 4711 cologne. Procter & Gamble have now decided to sell it off and to focus on celebrity perfumes instead. I hope the blue and gold bottles are not going to go away after more than 200 years and that this is not the beginning of the end! P & G say they are going to keep the production site in Cologne. Mülhens 4711 must be the most famous number for a perfume together with Chanel no 5.
