So I have been using this balm for about 3 months. I bought a 6 oz bottle at Walgreens for about $11. For me performance is more important than scent. I find it very soothing, and not to greasy. It has a nice menthol kick. I like to use Aqua Velva Ice Blue first. I keep mine in the fridge for extra cooling. After about 10 minutes I use the balm. If I don't wait, my eyes water from menthol overload! Scents are very much a matter of taste. But some say that This balm smells like Vicks vapo rub. To me it just smells minty. However the minty smell goes away in a few minutes. After that I can't really smell anything. But I don't want a strong scent on my sensitive skin anyway. I find that this balm helps to moisturize the skin. Also help razor burn. I think it is also a great value as long as you don't buy it from amazon. In my area I have found it at CVS and Walgreens. It is sometimes available at Target. The ingredients are: water,glycerin,shea butter, glyceryl dilaurate,methyl gluceth-20,fragrance,tea tree oil,baobab oil,tamanu oil,menthol,dimethicone,and acrylates. Above the ingredients list it says that most ladies will fine the fresh scent of bergamot and sandalwood rather appealing. But I can't really smell those scents. However, my sense of smell is not the greatest. But my 2 kittens seam to like it! Another thing I like about this is that part of the proceeds benefit the U.S. veterans. Anyhow, I highly recommend Duke Cannon After Shave Balm. Have a great day! Have a great shave! P.S. Never let a cat lick your face right after you shave! It feels like sand paper.
