Decanted some Pinaud clubman today!

Stubbled across some Pinaud clubman today at local drugstore today which was awesome because I had already been planning on ordering it. I’d also been researching and decided I wanted to decant into nice glass bottle. Well I sacrificed some hot sauce and have to say I’m pretty happy with the results and the AS as a whole. Smells great and now it looks great too!

That's really nice!

Did you soak the label off the plastic bottle and re-use it?

No I read on here to open up the top and pour hot almost boiling water into plastic container. It made plastic pretty soft but it also soften adhesive so I just used blade to peel up corner and it came off super easy and just transferred it over. That way you don’t ruin label but getting it wet.

decanting clubman and its siblings has been a revelation to me. The only one I cannot tell a difference is the Lime Sec.

Cholula Bottle for the win!!! I’ve always enjoyed my Pinaud aftershave better once it was decanted. Nice job and I hope you enjoy!

I just did my decantering to a glass vessel 3 or 4 weeks back (glass is inert or does not absorb). I believe plastic is a bad choice for aftershaves and the only reason they use it is because of costs. The older generations knew better and plastic was not used in mass like these days. The re-stricter from the plastic Clubman bottle fits this smaller glass vessel just right for diluting a strong scented aftershave with witch hazel- the little vessel has a cap also to seal it.

Ingenious.
