    What is osage rub and what does it do for you?

    An aftershave laced with tons of menthol. It's a face freezer.

    Nice! What does it smell like? I hope that's not a dumb question

    Well it's not a dumb question, I just don't know if I can describe it. It smells medicinal, kind of powdery? IMHO. Someone else might be able to answer this better than me.

    Think of Vicks mixed with alcohol.

    I'm very curious to try the Osage Rub. I love using Proraso with AV I'm sure this will be an amazing combo.

    :) Howdy! Osage Rub can also be used as a hair tonic and a body splash. Invigorating!
    Always, Gene

    Osage Rub is so cooling that it can be felt for at least an hour after you splash it on. The scent is quite pleasant - very mentholated with a medicinal note.

    Maybe an hour for some. Only last 15 minutes, if that, for me. The scent is, as you say, quite pleasant. I like it.

    :) Howdy! I've wondered how it would feel to have Osage Rub applied after a massage instead of the alcohol that is used. Always, Gene

    Hmmm, I'm intrigued. On a one to 10 scale, where would you rate Osage and Aqua Velva (The Ice Blue one) as far as...mentholicity or freeze-atation or what have you?

    Ed, IMHO Osage Rub is TWENTY times colder than Aqua Velva - there's no comparison. :)

    Alright, I've got a bottle now thanks to Jeff's endless pimping of menthol products :p I won't shave for a few days as my face needs to recover from some overly optimistic shaving on my part. I took a whiff and...um...does it smell better when it's on you skin? And if not, how long does the scent last? It smells pretty much like Vicks vap-o-rub while in the bottle.

    Then scent does not last long at all.

    Funny no one has mentioned this yet. It has eucalyptus oil and menthol in it. That's why it smells like Vicks vaporub.
