    Jovan Musk?

    Hello all, I know some of you either love or hate Jovan Musk as a fragrance, but how effective is it as an aftershave? Typically have some irritation, plan to start using witch hazel. Have always worn Jovan as a cologne though, curious how well it works for irritation. May use both :)...
