I don't even have to try the Veg to know it didn't choose me. Here's my heresy for the day: Pinaud Clubman isn't my favorite. I have decanted it into glass, and I'm trying to get it to grow on me, as I remember there always being a bottle of it on my grandfather's bathroom shelf when I was young. As it stands, I don't hate it, but I still smell overtones of baby powder and cat urine. If I get that from Clubman, I'm guessing going full-Vegetal is not in the cards.
They are truly nothing alike. If you like aftershave as much as you seem to, you can't go to your grave without knowing if you are chosen! It may change your life.......or not.
