Great little menthol kick sensation. Pretty nice scent. I think people are way too critical about aftershaves. Foir the most part, they are all the same thing and feel the same. So why pay $20 + per bottle? This takes away any redness I may get from razor burn. Awesome cooling feeling and a scent that is very mild throughout the day for me. (keep in mind i probably use a little more than most gents.) As far as alcohol burn, as long as you know how to properly shave with a D/E or straight, there really isn't too much, there will always be a little. Very good product.
