Mäurer & Wirtz Aftershave & Men's Fragrance

Mäurer & Wirtz was founded in 1845 by Michael Mäurer and stepson Andreas Wirtz. Their first business venture was in Aachen, Germany, where they produced soaps and detergents. Mäurer & Wirtz has expanded since the 19th century and the company is now more focused on fragrance. 4711 is by far the most popular of scent in their range. 4711 is a classic citric cologne originally created in the late 1700's. 4711 is still made using the original recipe and bottle design.

After all these years the business is still partly family owned which is quite a feat. In 2014 the 4711 cologne celebrated its 222nd birthday, only a couple of years before the 4711 Acqua Colonia (2009) unisex collection was launched with over 10 different ingredient combinations in its range. Legend has it that the original nose behind 4711, a merchant named Wilhelm Mülhens was gifted a bottle of the miracle water as a wedding gift. This perfumed water was gifted to him by a Carthusian monk and would later become the 4711 cologne as we know it. 4711's flagship store, situated on Glockenglasse, is a popular tourist attraction for fragrance enthusiasts. The aromatic men's fragrance contains citrus accents of orange oil and lemon.
Another steady favourite is the original Tabac fragrance that hit the markets in 1955. In fact, it is so popular that the fragrance itself has its own Wikipedia page. They have now expanded the Tabac range to include Tabac Eau de Toilette's, Eau de Cologne's, shaving soap, aftershave and deodorant.

With over 170 years of experience Mäurer & Wirtz have come a long way, but they are nowhere near finished. The company continues to grow by acquiring different prestige brands such as Strellson, Baldessarini and many more to come.

Review for "Mäurer & Wirtz Tabac Original Aftershave 50ml Spray" version

The Tabac product line are very well priced and readily available. Tabac is a fresh clean scent that to my nose is timeless. This aftershave should be a staple for a wet shaver. It's very effective and the smell lingers for a while and is great when applied after a wet shave with the Tabac soap. .

Review for "Mäurer & Wirtz Tabac Original Refillable Soap Bowl 125ml" version

The Tabac product line are very well priced and readily available. Tabac is a fresh clean scent that to my nose is timeless. This soap bowl should be a staple for a wet shaver. It's very effective and the smell lingers for a while and is great when doubled up with the aftershave lotion.

Mäurer & Wirtz Tabac Original Eau De Cologne 30ml SprayJust like I remembered.
Gurth Scriven,
Review for "Mäurer & Wirtz Tabac Original Eau De Cologne 30ml Spray" version

Like most oldies I have a bathroom cabinet full of Christmas after shave that well-meaning relatives have bought me over the years that I have used once and eithe me or my wife loathed.Then, whilst looking for Je Reviens for my wife I saw my old favourite, Tabac Original, on a whim I added Tabac to the order. Happy Days! A good price and just like I remembered. I will have to lay down a couple more in case it ever goes off the market.

Mäurer & Wirtz 4711 Eau De Cologne 50ml SplashSimilar to TF Neroli Portofino, much cheaper
Jeremy Pen,
Review for "Mäurer & Wirtz 4711 Eau De Cologne 50ml Splash" version

A very fresh and citrusy fragrance which reminds you of Neroli Portofino but less refined. It has an edible quality with the use of oranges and lemons.Extremely poor longevity and sillage - you will have to keep applying this.
