    Belcam Drakkar Noir

    I finally picked up a bottle last month. Been wearing it to work. It’s damn good.. totally takes me back to college. The only other Classic Match I have is Polo Green and that one totally punches above its price class.

    Fragrance / Scent of the day.

    Today is Polo Supreme Leather. This was the last one I needed to complete my Polo Supreme Trio. I love all three.

    Barbershop Fragrances

    Floris Elite Davidoff Zino Lalique Pour Homme EDP (Zino is in the same lane as Tom Ford Beau De Jour and the Lalique is somewhat close to Creed Bois du Portugal)

    Favorite Oud

    I currently have four Oud fragrances. (I want more lol) Ralph Lauren Polo Supreme Oud - this one has a pretty strong oud note (though I’m still learning about the note). It hits right from the start. There’s some cinnamon there in the middle - they seem to compliment each other well. This is...

    What aftershave and cream combination did use today?

    AOS Oud and Skin Bracer. Good combo.

    eBay cologne?

    I bought an obviously fake bottle of Ralph Lauren Polo Supreme Oud. It was weaker than the knock off I bought at Big Lots. That was my only burn. I’ve bought several others without issues, including a 100 ml bottle of Dior Noir EDP for $30. My tips are only buy from sellers that show the actual...

    English Leather Musk vs English Leather

    I have a bottle of MEM EL Musk aftershave. To my nose it smells nothing like regular EL, MEM or Dana. I haven’t come across anything quite like it. It doesn’t smell like any musk I’ve ever tried either. To me it’s more like vanilla than musk. There always seems to be a few on eBay at fairly...

    Vintage and unusual aftershaves: Post your photos

    JB Williams era AV Ice Blue. I'm guessing it's from 2001/2002 due to the "2002 Monte Carlo" giveway on the cap. 2002 was the last year that AV was under JB Williams before being sold to Combe Inc.

    This is definitely Lavender, but for some reason they removed that from the front.

    Aqua Velva Ice Blue - American JB Williams (????-2002) vs American Combe (2003-2010)

    Came across a NOS bottle of JB Williams era Aqua Velva Ice Blue on the bay for a steal, looks to be from 2001 (the sticker on the cap touts a giveaway of a 2002 Monte Carlo), which is right before AV was sold to Combe, Inc. There were subtle changes on the bottle when Combe took over, they seem...

    Irish Spring smelling AS

    Aqua Velva Ice Sport smells like Cool Water/Aspen. Hard to go wrong with that. I would suggest this before Preferred Stock. I have a few small sample bottles of the PS aftershave and it's good, but there's other muskiness in there that I think overpowers any soapiness you might get from it.

    Vintage Avon find

    The Wild Country balm is nice. I may have to pick up another tube. The current stuff is super cheap too.

    What are your Favorite Designer and Niche Aftershaves from Famous Fragrance Houses?

    The only real "designer" aftershave I have is Pierre Cardin balm and it's great. I bought a gift set just so I could get some more when my last tube ran out. I guess my Halston Z-14 aftershaves count as well (love the smell but it's not the best performing aftershave in the world). I'm...
