Terrific longevity for a Bay Rum. If you don't like burn stay away from this one. I happen to like extremes and this is extreme. The added witch hazel is a nice added touch for healing. Very sweet and 'gingerbready' fragrance that you will get whiffs off all day. I purchased the 8oz bottle.
I'm a big fan of all the Ogallala products. I especially love the colognes. I used the original as an aftershave but when I got the special reserve, WOW, you want to go light on that stuff. It smells great and lasts a heck of a lot longer than the old stuff, but it is a little strong for aftershave. I do use the SR as such, but I use very, VERY, little. It seems to work and it lasts all day and most of the night if need be. I highly recommend this to anyone; regardless of weather they are looking for an old time sent, a new change of pace, or even if they don’t shave at all. For me, the special reserve is kind of like the desert at the end of the meal. And you cant complain about the price too much either. They always have deals for the savvy shopper.
its nice very nice ,only when i put it on it burns !not a pinauld bay rum burn (that initialy burns like the fires of hell and goes away )this actually burns my skin on my chest .but its that nice im going to buy more ha!
