Pinaud Lime Sec Eau de Cologne

Item Description

Wow! What an amazing scent!!

I have been using Pinaud Clubman and Pinaud Virgin Island Bay Rum for a while, now, and they are two of my favorites. I was looking to try more Pinaud aftershaves, and I got this based on some strong reccomendations on the forums.

I am so happy that I did! First of all, the price is great. I think it was about $9 for 12 oz. That's pretty darn cheap for such a high quality aftershave. I rated the "Fights Razor Burn" at only a 5, and the "Cooling Sensation" as N/A, and the "No Alcohol Burn" as a 4 because this is an alcohol based spalsh. Moreover, it is a Pinaud product. So, be forewarned, it will sting. It's nowhere near the hellfire burn of the Pinaud Bay Rum, but it will sting. I, however, really like the sting of alcohol aftershaves, so I love it.

The scent is what really grabs you. It is such a strong and clean citrus scent, and it seems to last forever! I guess that's why it's labeled as an Eau de Cologne, instead of an aftershave. Even now, six hours after my morning shave, I can still smell it a little. I am absolutely in love with the scent and, now, I am on the hunt for more lime scented products. I can easily see that this will take over the #1 spot in my A/S rotation.

If you like citrus scents at all or, even if you're just curious, I highly recommend you pick up a bottle. It is so very cheap that there's no reason not to. Trust me, you will NOT be disappointed. It will probably become one of your favorites, too.:biggrin:

Pros: scent

One of the best lime scents out there. I only have a sample of this, but it was good for about 4 applications. The lime is prominent, but there is also a perfumy musk that is behind it, giving it a balanced scent, not the sweet lime of Avon Island Lime, much more mature and masculine.

Price: I love the "low cost" after shaves that really do the job.. this is one of them.

Quality: This stuff is great, such a great scent, feel and everything for the price.

Sent: It's in my TOP 3 of all time! There is just something about this scent that i love! Clean, refreshing, citrus! I think some of the guys had it right when they said it smells like a "citrus laundrey detergant"!
If you shave with a fruity/citrus Shave Soap or Cream and then end your shave with this stuff, wow! It's the ultimante clean!
I usually use Geo. F Trumpers "Limes" SkinFood after i splash some of this on and man! It just does wonders for my skin.
This is a every day and most certainly the best summer after shave out there! Im a fan! :thumbup1:

My wife picked this up for me. It was either buy this and get free shipping or pay for shipping. I'll take it. Now I had heard people call this lemon pledge or lemon cleaner so I was a little skeptical. On to the review...
Price: In line with other Pinaud products. Large bottle at a reasonable cost for what you get.
Quality: As to be expected from Pinaud.
Fights Razor Burn: Not great but not bad. You get some relief, kinda takes the edge off.
Cooling Sensation: You get some cooling from the shave. This performs well though when liberally splashed on the upper body. Refreshing.
Scent: Some lime with a large dose of lemon and a slight chemical smell. I won't call it lemon pledge but someone with a sensitive sniffer would probably. Very citrus.
Efficacy: Well the scent doesn't last long and really only lingers shortly after the application.
Moisturizing: Didn't find it to moisturize or dry out.
No alcohol burn: You get some but not as bad (good in book) as say the Bay Rum.

Bottom line... This stuff is OK and has a mildly pleasing scent. Lime isn't the first thing I think of but it is present. If you are looking for a clean and fresh lime scent look elsewhere.
