Wikipedia (05 Jul 2013, 08:59)

Johann Maria Farina gegenüber dem Jülichs-Platz (English: John Maria Farina opposite Jülich's Square) is the world's oldest Eau de Cologne and perfume factory. It was founded at the beginning of the 18th century by Giovanni Maria Farina (German: Johann Maria Farina), an Italian perfume maker who started his business in 1709. The company's logo is a red tulip. The French name "Jean Marie Farina vis à vis de la place Juliers" and the short form "Farina gegenüber" were also commonly used over a long period of time.

The company is still run by the founder’s descendants, who are the 8th generation of family members. The company has held Royal Warrants as purveyors of perfume to the German, French, Italian and British Royal Families. The company headquarters and birthplace of Eau de Cologne are both to be found in Farina House in Cologne, Germany where the Farina Fragrance Museum is also located.
