    Identify butterscotch simpson

    My neighbor was over and saw all my brushes in my bathroom. He said he had a few he had picked up here and there but since he was moving he wanted to get rid of them. So he checked in a box under his bathroom sink and came up with this old catalin handle Simpson brush. It seems to be in...

    SCS and Shave Den

    I have smoke and beads from SCS and it has to be the most potent scent I have, and I have some crazy potent scents. i seriously cannot spray a small enough spritz to make it wearable. its a crazy patchouli incense bomb.

    Rive Gauche-like aftershave splash?

    didn't you say you didn't want menthol? aqua velva has quite a bit of menthol in it. might as well just use original barbasol then...

    Polo Black

    my brother in law was wearing it at a wedding a few years back and I asked him what he was wearing since it smelled pretty good... It's not bad, woody I thought it smelled like cedar and maybe some patchouli with a sweetness to it...

    Hard vs. Soft Water and Lather

    from the wikipedia page on hard water: basically divalent cations, magnesium, calcium, etc. with outcompete the monovalent sodium or potassium in soap and these complexes are much less soluble in water so fall out of solution instead of forming lather.[/FONT][/COLOR]

    For fans of 1 Million

    I tried givenchy gentlemen only a few weeks ago. I'm a big fan of the original gentleman so I was excited to try the new only version. Well I was extremely disappointed. It has not relation at all to the original except for the bottle. My first thought was that it smells like watered down 1...

    Tying my shoes wrong and a shaving aha moment

    that's the same as tying a granny knot vs a square knot...the square knot is stronger but you have to invert the cross-over when you tie the second half.

    Fragrance Components of Gillette Cool Wave Deodorant?

    Does the deodorant smell different than the aftershave? there are a few threads on basenotes discussing the aftershave. I haven't smelled it myself, but i noticed one person compare it to safari which used to come in a whole line of shaving products...

    There's also L'anarchiste, cool bottle and people say it smells like blood...I didn't think so, smells like canned mandarin oranges and some mint. I have a bottle of PuH so I guess thats my favorite. though I've been looking to try farnesiana since I love almond...
