La Toja

Item Description

A great spanish aftershave with a classic "Barber-shop" scent. Hardly any razor burn at all, clean, crisp but subtle scent. Leaves your face feeling fresh without any real bad points whatsoever. Readily available on the spanish market though will probably cost more but not the earth, elsewhere.
If you like Floid, Proraso, Musgo ect, you'll like this one! :biggrin:

I just tried this splash and I think it's great. The scent is classic barbershop and the splash is mildly cooling and soothing. There is a decent amount of moisturization for an alcohol based splash. The burn is very mild.

If you like extremes in your splashes - lots of burn, lots of chilly mentholated cooling, strong & lingering scent; then look elsewhere.

This is a great balanced splash. It's not too strong, not too scented (it does linger somewhat but not a lot) and works very well.

Bonus - The bottle is generously portioned and it's glass, which is rapidly becoming a rarity in the American drug-store aftershave market. To nitpick - the cap is a bit cheesy. The cap portion seperated fomr the threaded piece the first time I opened it up.

US folks: Don't be worried about paying a bit extra for getting it shipped from Europe. It's still a decent buy for the money. Sure I would much rather buy it for cheap $$ at a corner drugstore in Spain but I was happy to have added this to my aftershave rotation regardless of extra cost to get it to the States.

La Toja is my favorite aftershave.
It receives the top billing in my rotation which is Saturday afternoon.
La Toja provides a crisp, clean, feeling after my shave with my favorite badger brush & double edge razor. It has just a hint of menthol in it but just the right amount to detect its coolness and leaving your mug feeling and looking refreshed. There is alcohol in it & but will provide what I like to call a soothing burn.
The scent is very barbershop and will linger just right to catch gentle whiffs as you go about your errands or just lazing around reading the paper on that perfect casual Saturday afternoon. Best of all, it wont clash with your favorite fragrance wearing of the day because La Toja's scent is subtle. I would compare the scent of La Toja to the classic 80's fragrance "Drakkar Noir".
I love the look of the square clear glass bottle La Toja aftershave is still presented in. There is something to be said for this and I do appreciate this as the classic aftershaves are going to "shatterproof bottles" or lets just cut to the chase & say plastic. The beautiful light green opaque juice inside looks so refreshing.
La Toja is great value because it is supplied in a generous bottle size. Thankfully Leon at Vintage Scent ensures it can be obtained at an affordable price point for North Americans.
I hope he will always stock this classic afterhshave.
