Aftershaves (Reviews) item created by Alfredo Becerra, Jan 28, 2010
Pros - Cheap cost
Cons - Smells like cheap drugstore aftershave
I decided to try this when I was getting low on my Master bay rum bottle since Sally's doesn't seem to have Master anymore.
If this is the first bay rum you ever try maybe you would like it. After using something like Master bay rum(with the natural bay leaf oil and alcohol) this will smell like artificial chemicals.
I decided to try this since so many people give it rave reviews but I have to wonder if the formula has been changed since those days years ago.
Pros - price
Cons - scent
I'm going to recommend this because, like the Veg, I believe one must be chosen for VIBR. I'm not. A splash of this scent and I smell like our Christmas ham roasting away. I suppose it would be a decent AS to wear when having a large holiday meal, but beyond that it's not for me. Like any Pinaud product, high quality is combined with low price.
Pros - Really nice spicy scent when it dies down. GREAT for the price.
Cons - Smells awful in the bottle.
I love this stuff. I paid $7.79 (plus shipping) for a 12 oz. bottle. Its labeled as a cologne, but I use it specifically as an aftershave. The price point is awesome - per ounce I can't imagine you can really find anything better. As far as the scent is concerned - I absolutely love it when it calms down. It is pretty foul from the bottle, but I never judge anything until its on and dry. The burn is pretty intense, but I prefer a strong burn. It tones my face and neck well, and I don't get any bumps or burn when I use this, as well as other Pinaud products. All in all I'll give this a high 8. I've said this before, but you don't have to break the bank to get a high quality product. Smell like a man!
This is my second favorite AS in my rotation, it's a good winter AS because of the nice warming effect it has.
I simply can't fall in love with this aftershave. It's so overdone on the cloves smell, that the entire aftershave is ruined for me.
I decanted some into an empty glass Spieck bottle, and once that is gone, I will likely never buy it again.
For my dollar, Master Bay Rum (also locally available) is superior in every way. It simply smells about 1000X better than the Clubman Bay Rum.
Burns like a sumbitch! Doesn't moisturize much. Doesn't cool. Doesn't smell all that great to me. I like it better when I mix it 50/50 with Master Bay Rum and add some extra water and glycerin. Then it's great, but I still like master better.
It would be a great winter AS, it definitely has a warming effect. Not my favorite for summer.
That said, I won't be pouring mine down the sink. I like it enough mixed with Master that I'll keep it for a change of pace.
Smells better on your skin than in the bottle. Spicy sort of "holiday" scent. Reminds me of a pfeffernus cookie.
it seems funny I ordered this bay rum after reading these reviews, and now here i am adding my 2 cents
I hesitated before I slapped on my handful of this stuff, wondering if I was about to relive the childhood 5-alarm burn I can remember from my dad's English Leather.
It was quite nice, a bit of a sting, but nothing to slam your hand in the door about
The key word for the scent is Clove, but that is also the first thing to burn off and leaves a light bay scent.
I really like that Tradition has become the new exotic scent, thanks to Axe
This is the best aftershave I've used so far...at least for my skin. It has absolutely amazing razor burn fighting properties and my skin feels great after I have used it. I don't react that well to a lot of aftershaves so I was quite surprised about this.
The smell is very clovey/ spicy, its not a scent that will blow you away with how incredible it is but at the same time not its not unpleasant.
The burn is another interesting aspect. Immediately after application you don't really feel a burn, it kind of slowly builds up. It can get quite strong, but as it slow and not sharp to my senses the burn is less painful that say Aqua Velva etc. Once it begins to wear off I must say that I begin to feel a kind of cooling sensation.
I use this product every other day in rotation with Clubman A/S. I love the smell, and the Wife likes it too!
