Ah, I see. Thanks. :thumbup1:

But as my first OAM experience was somewhat of a fragrance nightmare I won't be considering any more of their products.
Totally understood. I find the Stay Traditional ok but the scent of the original is exceptional.
From Rasoigoodfellas:
The fragrance chosen for the Officina Artigiana aftershave it is extremely complex, refined, elegant and in many ways innovative thanks to a wise and refined processing of aromas. Masculine and suitable for all seasons, it develops on top notes of Birch, Black Pepper and orchid to open the dance towards a steel heart made of whiskey, Havana and pungent saffron. In closing, toasted barley sits gently on a bed of amber and Guaiac wood.

Even more clueless than you
@Lefonque How does Yaqi Sagrada Pure feel on the face? And how do you like Euromax blades so far?
I like the Sagrada. It is a bit scritchy on the face, but by no means unpleasant. It is my smallest brush. I had the Euromax gifted to me. I find them a very mild blade. That maybe because I have been using a using a Feather with every other shave. They are polar opposites.The Euromax give me an irritation free shave but not as close as some other blades. I will continue to use them and alternate between sharp blades as I am a daily shaver. They certainly have a place in my opinion.
