    Well, not really. But I just got in the mail six coupons for AquaVelva ($1 off). I'm pretty excited. AND I got a slant today.

    I actually just used Aqua Velva for the first time today and it's amazing! I hope you enjoy your coupons and also congratulations on the slant. What slant did you get?

    If I remember right, Zack got a new Merkur slant. Last I heard he was not happy with the plating and was going to see if he could return or exchange it.

    Man that's too bad. :( I hope he can exchange it for something else. Thanks for the heads up also.

    I was reading in Chet Bakers autobiography where he says when he was in the Army, and was being shiped overseas, cats were drinking Aqua-Velva mixed with fruit juice...He said they got fired up and fights would break out...and some cats went blind...ha,ha,ha....I nearly went blind the first time I used it as an after shave....I splashed it on a little heavy....got weak in the knees...lol

    Wish I could get some around here...I haven't smelled it in so long...I miss it...

    After putting it on my face and feeling how it felt, there is now way that I would even drink it. Haha It almost made me weak in the knees but man did it feel cold.

    Yeah guys....Chets story is funny....but don't forget he said and I quote:...some of the guys mixed Aqua-Velva and fruit juice. Everyone was getting loaded and fighting. SOME WENT BLIND FROM THE NOXIOUS AFTERSHAVE MIXTURE.....unquote
    Still cracked me up...lol...

    Hey guys, the Merkur is nice and its all good now. Just beware it's not an old Gillette. I still believe these Slants will last a long while with care. Don't throw it or use it as a hammer or something stupid!

    So did the original AquaVelva not include menthol? I'm assuming because I see they have "Original and Menthol." I couldn't imagine AquaVelva without menthol!

    I don't think mine has menthol in it. :think002:

    Which one is it? Ice Blue definitely does.
  14. Rafen

    Yeah it's the Ice Blue. I think menthol is the reason I want to use that stuff everyday it feel amazing :D

    Gotta be! If you're into menthol try SkinBracer, it rules!

    Skin Bracer is nice, but it has nothing on Osage Rub.:Animatedfrozensmily:

    If SkinBracer hadn't any menthol I'd still get it, I just love the scent.

    I'll have to try Aqua Velva some day. I don't even know what it smells like. I bought some Brut a while back and didn't like it at all. I ended up throwing the bottle away and gave up on the "classics" for a while.

    You might want to try Aqua Velva Ice Sport. To me, it's a bit more subtle than Ice Blue.
