    4711 Echt Kölnisch Wasser by 4711

    When it comes to Eaux de Cologne, there are so many better options available. True, most of the good options are much more expenive than 4711, however if you are looking for a high quality traditional EDC that won't break the bank, rather than wasting your time with 4711, you could do much better searching out Extra Vieille Jean Marie Farina by Roger and Gallet. I don't buy most of the historical claims from Muelhens, but regardless of the truth, 4711 is a very inferior product. If you like it, then you probably have simply not been exposed to a good quality Eau yet. Search out Farina 1709 Eau de Cologne Original(if you can find it) the Eaux by Guerlain, Aqua di Parma, Extra Vielle by Roger and Gallet etc. 4711 is definitely the most affordable of the Eaux de Colongne; but it is not my favorite.
