I started wearing English Leather cologne back in the early 1970's when Mem still owned the company and it came in a wooden box! I bought the recent version by Dana a few years ago and will probably buy their aftershave soon. How long ago did you buy the aftershave? They stopped producing it for a few years until last year. The box used to state that the ingredients were made in the USA but it was bottled in China! That certainly can't help with maintaining the freshness of the fragrance oils. I hoped they stopped that nonsense of sending the mixture to Asia and then having the bottles shipped back to the USA.
