Clubman Pinaud Bay Rum

Yesterday my wife presented me with a bottle of Clubman Pinaud Bay Rum. Apparently she's fed up with my Turkish Lemon Kolonya.
Is it just me or does it smell like a bottle of old spice that's gone off?
 
Must be a personal taste thing. I hate it. Maybe it will grow on me
I wasn’t fond of it and was very happy when I emptied the bottle. I should have tossed it out, but hated to and my wife didn’t buy it. Sometimes I wonder whether another bay rum would please me.

I'm just not fond of string scents. Especially the ones that smell like my grandfather
 
There are many fans of Pinaud's Clubman Bay Rum, myself among them.
I never thought of it as a controversial or acquired taste.
I actually consider it one of the better Bay Rums being produced to-day.
Just further proof, I suppose, that Bay Rums can be a very personal choice.

I think scents smell differently from person to person. Something that smells great in one guy won't on another.
 
I don’t find it similar to Old Spice at all and I’d agree that it’s probably one of the better bay rums out there. In Bootlegger’s mix it’s magic.

Bummer it didn’t agree with you!

There’s that for sure. OTOH, I thought Haslinger Sandelholz was meh, but Proraso Red is great.

Sir Yukonmark, first, Welcome to B&B!

To me, Clubman Pinaud Virgin Island Bay Rum is not at all like Old Spice.
Heavy on bay and clove, IMHO.
But nice, for me.

Tried it, but had very little smell. Maybe got a bad bottle. Ive read St. Johns is a decent one. Might have to try it.
