B&B's Man in Italy
The green splash is one of my favorites.While I've shaved with Proraso green (and sandalwood) in the past as well as this month, I'd never used the standard balm or green splash and got them yesterday. So while I didn't use Proraso for the lather, I did use both the rinse and balm for two days in a row. VERY different from what I'm used to (Brit stuff and Old Spice along with a couple unscented balms that are not specifically for shaving) but quite enjoyable. I can't put my finger on the scent but it almost seems to evolve over a few hours (in a pleasing way). Glad I picked them up.
You guys seem to like the Polo product too.The green splash is one of my favorites.
Yes, the vintage stuff is a big favorite of mine as well. I used it extensively in the eighties before it was vintage. I guess I’m vintage now too.You guys seem to like the Polo product too.
You’re welcome to join late! Feel free to post your SOTD tomorrow or anytime the rest of August.Well, I'm very late to the game. Seems like it could be a good time for Pears followed by Skin Bracer, Lime Sec, or Citrus Musk.

I prefer the tube as well.For today's shave the Ever-Green Trio is: pre-shave, soap and aftershave lotion.
Now, the question I have already answered hundreds of times over the years: "Is Proraso soap exactly the same as Proraso cream?" The answer: "Yes, it is". The sole difference between the two is the water content, which makes the soap denser (less water) and the cream softer (more water). Other than that they are identical. You can choose one or the other, or simply enjoy both. Personally, I like the cream more. For two main reasons: 1. The packaging with metal tube is definitely more Old School, cool and eye-catching 2. It's what the Italian Master Barbers have been using for generations.
VIVA PRORASO! VIVA L'ITALIA!
