Wham Cam: Cologne?

Why is some perfume water called cologne?

Joe Snedeker headed to Independence Honda in Bloomsburg to ask folks there if they know where the word cologne came from.

    As Napoleon conquered the cities of Europe he did something novel. He gave the buildings on city streets a number. There was a house in Cologne, Germany selling bottles of fragrance for men, a citrus smelling liquid formulated by a Spanish resident. His house number was 4711. You can still buy the first, the original, Cologne, “4711”. In fact, I have a couple bottles in my bathroom cabinet. So there. Cologne.
