    Cheap cologne to pair with Proraso Red AS?

    I’ve recently take a job where I have to shave every day and my AS use has gone up considerably. One of the splashes I’ve started using is Proraso Red and I really like it. Can anyone recommend a reasonable cologne (sandalwood or other wise) that might pair with it? I’ve looked at TOBS and some...

    How close to OS is Avon Spicy?

    I went on the 'Bay and won an unused bottle of Avon Spicy for $3 with free shipping. I know Ebay can be iffy on vintage scents, but for $3 I thought it would be worth the risk. My question is, how close does the smell resemble Shulton Old Spice? I've thought about buying some Shulton, but after...

    Looking for a woodsy, heavier scent like Clubman Special Reserve

    Like the title says. The more I use Clubman SR, the more I love it. And the more I use it, the more I dislike a lot of lighter scents. I also hate paying a ton of money for AS and cologne. Any suggestions I might look up? I saw a bottle of English Leather for $8 and thought it might be more of...

    The Holy Black Customer Service

    My wife ordered a couple of aftershave samplers from the Holy Black for presents. When the package came, there was only one sampler even though she paid for two. She contacted them and they were very apologetic and said they'd mail out the other right away. The package came yesterday and along...

    I blame everyone here.

    I hit the grocery store last night and there's a Goodwill right next door. I stopped in to look for aftershaves, something I never would have done 2 months ago. And, low and behold, I found a full, in the box set of Hawk by Mennen. 3.2 oz. Both cologne and aftershave. There was no price tag, so...

    Jovan Sex Appeal similar to Old Spice?

    I've seen a couple of places online that Jovan Sex Appeal has a similar smell to the old Old Spice. They said mixing that with Vi-Jon makes a really good representation of the old stuff. Can anyone confirm or deny this? It's about $15 for a bottle so I don't want to grab it on a whim.

    Old Spice in honor of my grandfather

    After 87 years, we laid my grandfather to rest yesterday. He played in the Illinois state basketball championship in high school, played against and beat the Harlem Globetrotters, was a WWII veteran, retired Illinois State Trooper injured in the line of duty, and a great storyteller. He hadn't...

    Newbie trading question

    I have a question about shipping blades. I was thinking about trading some 5 packs so I can try other blades. Does anyone know if I can just put a 5 pack in an envelope and mail it with a regular stamp or two? Thanks

    Wife isn't liking Clubman very much.

    :mad3: So...today the wife got a sniff of me and said she just isn't feeling Clubman on me. She said it smells like an old man, which, of course, is part of the reason I like it. I've ordered a bottle of Special Reserve, so hopefully that will work a little better. She also bought me the AOS...

    Clubman going bad after 1 month?

    I know people have posted about Clubman changing while it sits in the plastic bottle. I've only had it a month or so, but I swear today when I opened it there was a different, slightly odd smell. Am I imagining things due to all the threads I've read?

    Looking for a decent, cheaper sandalwood AS

    I'm still new to all of this, but I'm really liking the DE shaving. I have a Merkur 180, VHD luxury kit, Nivea Sensitive ASB and Clubman AS. I love the Clubman for smell/price but I don't think my wife likes it as much as I do. I was talking to her and she loves the smell of sandalwood. I'd...

    Newbie blade help

    I'm a new DE shaver with less than a week under my belt. It's gone pretty good but today I tried ATG on my neck and got chewed up. It was the 4th shave with Merkur Long handle. I was using the Merkur blade that came with. Tomorrow I'm going to switch to a 7 O'Clock Black that I bought. I've...

    Got here via Dollar Shave Club

    Hi all. I've never shaved much. Up until the last few years my beard wasn't a big deal. It didn't grow much and I have a job where I don't need to shave. Combine that with the fact I hate paying for blades and you have a recipe for laziness. The last couple of years my beard has been getting...
