Best Aftershave - Page 2

Stock up Lude! Dickel No 8 is discontinued and 12 is not far behind If it smells anything like the shaving cream, it's a winner in my book! I'm still meaning to try the Musco colognes to try to find one comparable to the cream. Musgo Real's shaving cream scent is wonderful!

I have Musgo Real on my to-get list. I've heard some great things about it.
Try mixing 2 parts Cornhuskers, 2 parts Aloe Gel, to 1 part Thayer's scented witch hazel for a pretty bitchin' homemade balm.

I use Cornhusker's Lotion.
Thanks man, I didn't know Sue did splashes now. I'm going to check that out. And I hear ya on the lifetime supply of AV. I'd give up any fancy balm or splash for a lifetime of AV. I can use it as an AS splash, disinfect my razors with it, and then swill it to get a bit of a buzz.

After reading about Sue's stuff on BB, I ordered a bottle of Saint Charles Shave's Splash, and I like it quite a bit. I'll eventually try the A/S milks, probably in winter.

Musgo's AS splash smells nothing like the cream.. still nice though.

My current favorite: Proraso's Liquid Cream Aftershave for sensitive skin. Feels really nice and smells great.
#2 ist Weleda's Aftershave balm

Has anyone tried Osage? It's supposed to be the most mentholated splash out there.

I'm shocked that more people don't use Acqua Di Parma stuff. I've yet to fine a better scent and the shaving cream is awesome.

Scent aversion varies a lot from person to person. I like AdP's Colognes, but I found aftershaves and shave creams that were better for less. I didn't love the scent enough to pay the premium, others might.. It's very personal.

Calvin Klein aftershave lotions typically possess a blend of mandarin and spice, with low quantities of musk, sandalwood and amber. The scent gear up more peoples encircling around you.

A large variety of classy, alcohol free after shave lotions from Paul Sebastian's are efficient in moisturizing the skin. The masculine fragrance from the lotions is more vitalizing and refreshing.

Seriously love Ogallala Bay Rum with sandalwood aftershave. It's witch hazel based, so it's not too drying and the smell is incredible.

well three years after the first post and i'm diggin nivea balm again. the scent has changed. it's more woody. much better IMO. i love terre d'hermes aftershave balm as well. i put on even on days i don't shave. i also like old spice splash. the newer formulation i guess. too lazy to even look for those vintages.

i've never personally been a fan of aftershave - just splash cold water after the shave and be done. never been super prone to irritation.

Is there any sort of play between aftershave and cologne? Can you get them to play into eachother? Or does the aftershave scent die soon enough?

Depends on the aftershave ... most will dissipate fairly quickly, but some will linger.

Musgo Real's Aftershave Balm is great. As is DR Harris' Aftershave Milk.

The shaving cream doesn't work well for me . I have much better luck with Trumpers, TOBS, Nancy Boy and, my new favorite, Bluebeards Revenge.

Alt'Innsbruck for sure. Great cooling effect and the tobacco scent is great.



BTW, I always have a bottle of Aqua Velva, Old Spice, Dominica Bay Rum and Proraso on hand.

This is a very pleasant one I discovered as well. The Vanilla scent is really nice. Cheap too:
