    It's funny, the deodorant is fine, but the AS is awful.

    I don't even think the deodorant is so great. I threw it away after two uses.

    You only option is to "like" then "unlike". And apply extra Clubman to restore balance to the universe!

    oh yes, classic scents indeed.. but I need to get my hands on the Proraso if it's included here. I have all the rest.

    It would be tricky for me to put them in order of personal preference. Depends on the seasons for me(many of you know this about me, but this is for those who don't).

    Is that sort of a "Gentlemen's Axe"?

    I dunno but "Axe" is not what I think of when I smell it. It's good and it works. Speed Stick Musk has been dethroned for me.

    I have stockpiled Skin Bracer Blue, but not the Green. Blue smells a lot like Speick to me.

    From the AOM list, Skin Bracer should have replaced Brut..SB is 22 years older than Brut. I think that's what the protesters-and I-were upset with.

    A sure sign you ought to backstock a couple while it's still available. I like it, too.
    Axe Oud wood & dark Vanilla.gif
    It's not an obnoxious all over teenage body spray. Also not an pore clogging antiperspirant. Pleasant scent though I'm still not sure what Oud smells like.

    Wood-spice with overlay of sweet vanilla, but just a touch.

    AXE??? You all must have grown up in a different era than I did lol (well, actually AXE came only later). I cringe at seeing those three letters!

    If I had to choose a drugstore top five here (taking Germany as a reference, because I shop there), then my list would be:

    1. German Pitralon
    2. Tabac Original
    3. Irisch Moos
    4. Wilkinson Sword Classic
    5. H√Ęttrick Original (but that is pretty potent stuff)

    Shelton Old Spice is the best.
    Just stock up on the vintage Shulton made Old Spice, like many of us do. You just have to find it when it's not too expensive.

    Yes, sir. It's a value judgement. Vintage OS can be found for less than many premium new products. Seek and you shall find.
