I had someone recently ask me if men used aftershave in the 1800's, so I did a quick video of a few of the older potions. What did I leave out? I'm always looking to try old, traditional style aftershaves.
Wow! Thanks very much for the information and corrections! I wish it was easier to go back and correct a video than it is. I will add some of the correct information to the description. Thanks also for the information on the British colognes! TOBS shaving cream is my favorite, but never thought about the colognes. I'll check some of those out.Thank you for an interesting and informative presentation.
Thanks for the information! I'll have to check those out! Especially Number Six if it's the oldest and George's favorite!Nice clip and a good job! Only a couple to add- of the fragrances I have in house: Caswell-Massey Number Six is the oldest, claiming a 1772 date and that it was a favorite of George Washington. I've had some of this on hand since working in Manhattan in the 1970's. Guerlain Eau de Cologne Imperial claims mid-1800's and was made for Empress Eugenia, the wife of Napoleon III.
