If there was some AV down there I might.
Picture is missing the 40 of Malt Liquor rofl:rofl
I got my first bottle of AV yesterday and my wife doesn't even hate it, as I thought she might.
AV Rules!! I'm lucky...my wife likes the smell and says it's very manly
Well, today she decided she did not like it. Hmmm...I like the way it feels, we'll have to see how this works out.
Ice Sport has a more mellow smell.
(As an aside, is it wrong to like AV and Old Spice...?)
I like AV Musk, and the other cheapies (Old Spice, Clubman, Mennen, but I simply can't stomach the smell of AV Classic Ice Blue once the alcohol dries. I bought a bottle about a year ago, dumped it down the drain. After hearing the continuous litany of praise on the forums, I figured I must be missing something, so I bought it again. But down the drain it also went. Man, does that stuff stink to my schnoz!!
Smart person. Welcome to The Shave Den.
Count me in the H.A.V.O.C. Team! Aqua Velva Classic Ice Blue after a nice shave with a menthol cream, followed by Tryphon Mentolo ASB......
Ooooo...........I think we need to add that smilie to our stable.
So I guess my question is, can I get me some of that neat Aqua Velva stuff without having to travel?
I believe TraderJoe got most of his AV goodies from foreign friends and/or Ebay.
I could be wrong though.
Skin Bracer and Aqua Velva were the only things my father would allow me to use when I was first leaning how to shave. If your shaving technique sucks, these products (especially the Skin Bracer) will let you know!! I still love using them today.
Great stuff! I use the Musk regularly.
It's truly amazing how long some threads last, isn't it? Especially given the topic at hand here! Not saying it's good or bad, but IT'S A GROCERY STORE PRODUCT for Pete's sake!!
So, buy some already. If you like it, great! If you don't, you're out 5 bucks.
Or you could sell it to Will for $10.
Oh, geez, here we go again.
Aqua Velva Classic Ice Blue Aftershave Lotion
SD Alcohol 40
FD&C Blue #1
Ext. D&C Violet No. 2
Under $5.00 for a 3.5 oz bottle (a real glass bottle). It can’t be that simple. There must be something they’re not telling us.
