Oh man, I totally forgot about the crystals you sent! I need to ask my wife about those. She wasn't sure what they were and put them somewhere.Did you use up all the menthol crystals I sent you in the PIF last summer?
I got mine from Amazon. Fairly inexpensive.
I also shave at night mostly and a lighter scented AS is preferred. The Barbasol splashes work pretty well and are cheap. Pacific Rush can sometimes be found at Big Lots for $1. Brisk is at a couple of the Dollar Stores - Family Dollar and Dollar General usually.
I also enjoy the Aqua Velva you picked up.
Here is what basenotes breaks it down to.Ok all, I went to store today and picked up some Aqua Velva for 3.99!
Now, WHAT is that smell? Its trying to tickle a memory...I've smelled it before, but can't place where. I can't remember if my dad used it either. Something about it though.....I do like it!
That is awesomeness!
I almost always shave at night, but the time of day doesn't make any difference to me as far as my choice of AS goes.
My favourite AS so far is Mennen Skin Bracer. SWMBO likes it too, so no conflict there. Runners-up are Old Spice Classic and Brut, and I generally rotate between those three.
The biggest problem I have with Aqua Velva Ice Blue is that it smells exactly like Aqua Velva Ice Blue. Ain't no way to get around that.
+1 for Speick. So far, is the best night time AS...Not meeting your request to keep it local, but still worthy of consideration: Speick. I shave at night about 50% of the time, and Speick is my favorite night time AS splash. It's very soothing, and the pleasant scent is fairly tame and what is there fades in a short period of time.
This is where the menthol crystals shine - you can bring the level up to wherever you want it.So, I tried the Aqua Velva, and though I like the scent, it doesn't have enough menthol.

Thanks for sharing that link. I talked to my wife about the crystals you PIF'd.....I'm ashamed to say, but....they were trashed. I feel bad, and offer my sincere apologiesThis is where the menthol crystals shine - you can bring the level up to wherever you want it.
If you can't find them, this will last a long time:
