    English Leather Spiced Cologne/Old Spice Similarities

    Recently I obtained a 1 oz vintage glass bottle of English Leather Spiced Cologne by MEM and was pleasantly surprised at how much this reminded me of vintage Old Spice. For a cologne this one hangs around for awhile and lets you know it's there. English Leather had a few nice spinoffs such as...

    Cuir Ottoman

    Tried a sample of Cuir Ottoman by Parfum d'Empire today and really thought this was a nice Leather fragrance. Luckyscent has a wonderful way with their descriptions and this one is right on, anything that has "dirt and sensuality" is ok in my book: The Scoop Cuir Ottoman, inspired by 'the...

    Brut Shave Cream

    While Brut EDC receives all of the attention I was curious if anyone has ever tried the Brut shave cream in the tube? Growing up as a '70's kid, this was the ultimate drugstore frag...

    Zizanie by Fragonard (1932)

    If you are a powder/musk/patchouli fan than Zizanie is for you, hard to believe this one is from the '30's. A distant relative of Royal Copenhagen, I remember trying this in the 1970's and find the current EDC a distant memory. Cheap, old school manliness either way, Highly Recommend!

    Knize Ten EDT Splash

    I have had an unopened 3.4 oz box of Knize Ten EDT Splash sitting in my closet for over a year and finally decided to try it this afternoon. All I can say is WOW, this is a truly unique and one of a kind blast from the past. My first reaction was petrol, powder, & leather with a certain...

    Koken Legacy

    Amazing that these barber chairs are still being produced, albeit in Japan. Originally made in St. Louis, Ernest Koken was the developer of the First hydraulic & steel barber chair in 1909. The Koken barber chair was the first chair which came with a footrest and a cushioned headrest. The...

    Russian Rapira Super Stainless

    Yesterday I tried a Rapira Super Stainless for the first time, I must say that this is one sharp blade, not one of the smoothest blades out there but it got the job done. Three passes and I have a DFS, anyone else tried this hard to find blade?

    Power House Users

I have tried the Regency & Songo re-issues and was very disappointed. This was my start on the road to exploring the wonderful world...
