Think I have beat around the bush and have asked the question in various threads, but never directly. So I will now ask! Is there a shaving soap that matches or very closely approximates 4711 cologne? Thanks!

D. R Harris Arlington is not the same scent (neither the RazoRock xxx), but is pretty close.

I am a fragrance and scent junky - even more so than a shaving junky.

My picks:

Acqua di Parma croap, old formula if you can find it (it's still around)
Alvarez Gómez Barbería Shaving Cream
DR Harris Arlignton
GFT Trumper
Razorock XXX

Of all the recommendations thus far I find DR Harris Arlington to be the absolute closest in scent. Certainly more so than RR XXX.

Caties Bubbles Le Boucles Fruite, smells exactly (and I do mean exactly) like fruit loops and IMO so does 4711
