    I've been wondering about this for ages...

    Loads of the cologne and aftershave you guys talk about I've never even heard of.

    I was assuming it is one of 3 things....

    1. Lots of you are American and I'm from the UK. May just not match up.

    2. Many of you have more "life experience" than I do :lyrtuy5: (I'm in my early 30's)

    3. I may just have no idea about aftershave. Like, totally clueless.

    So at the moment in my drawer there is L'eau D'Issey by Issey Miyake, Boss - Hugo Boss and Dior Sauvage (which I have seen someone mention). Do I need to go hunting for cheaper/different stuff??

    Nah, don't go looking for different stuff. If you're curious about stuff from over here, see if you can find a sampler. Go from there. West Coast Shaving has one.

    6 of those 7 are listed and commented on "The Art Of Manliness....6 Forgotten Drugstore Colognes"(I think that's the title anyway). The one not on that list is Proraso.

    Well, there it is on the Aqua Velva....a statement that it began THAT WAY(as an aftershave)in 1929. They got it right after 12 years.

    The Clubman stopped you from reading the rest, eh?

    I own and use all of these. I would order them differently, but I enjoy them all.

    Stetson is my favorite of the bunch. And it is readily available!

    In The Art Of Manliness, many were wondering why Skin Bracer wasn't included.

    Before P&G got their hands on Old Spice I loved it. Now I can either take it or leave it.
