I am not really a fan of most aftershaves—yeah, I remember my dad's Mennen Skin bracer and Old spice—fond memories from the scent. The ones I do prefer tend to be more mildly scented as I often apply post-shave balms. Even the old school 'Barber Shop' stuff—Pinaud Clubman, Osage Rub—packs an olfactory punch to the senses initially, but dissipates quickly. My 3 sons evaluate most of my collection and aren't hesitant to offer an opinion. "Crusty old barber shop."(Clubman),"...that one smells like grandpa." (Aqua Velva), "Fruit Pebbles.." (4711), "Retirement home janitor's closet" (Osage Rub), "Spicy, but weird...smells like an air freshener" (my own Bay Rum )— Needless to say, a tough crowd!
