Gillette Sunup aftershave

Well, I'm down to my last 4 oz bottle of vintage Sunup aftershave. It's getting harder and harder to find.
I ordered the Barrister and Mann Reserve Classic from WCS, which is supposed to be a very close match.
Has anyone here done a comparison and could comment on how close it actually is?
Are there any other clones out there besides the copy sold by PAA which I absolutely refuse to buy?
 
My all time favorite. Used up the last of my supply about 10 years ago.
It is one of my absolute favorite aftershaves. I own 200 vintage and modern aftershaves. Not one of them is an Artisan aftershave.

The only Artisan aftershave I have ever owned was a bottle of Captains Choice Bay Rum I purchased and used up quite a few years ago.

I also had a couple of travel bottles of vintage Gillette Sun Up I picked up at an antique store and went thru pretty quickly. Wonderful stuff. It’s how aftershave is supposed to feel and smell.

I don’t get a better nostalgic feeling or retro glow, then after splashing on Sun Up after a shave.

I would be very interested and appreciative in reading a review and what you think of B&M’s copy when you receive it @luvmysuper.

If you think it compares to the original, B&M may just be the very first Artisan aftershave company to get regular and repeat purchases from me.
