Sometimes simple is best...
$5.00 for a 3.5 oz bottle? I can get a 7oz bottle for just over $4 at my local drugstore. Something's not right here.
As much as I use this stuff, my guess is something addictive.
windshield wiper fluid...in a bottle.
Also available at Walton & Sons Emporium or your local Megalomart.
Sparky, I think you've nailed it. It must be the "Agent Blue" that makes addicts of us. No wonder some men are reduced to drinking the stuff.
J.B. Williams must have been a devious man.
ok ok...I can do Old Spice, but...this stuff is just -- well it FEELS fine, but after a while the smell just kind of...its not as bad as stale axe but....augh I can't put it into words! But it isn't good!
I'll admit Aqua Velva isn't a particularly fragrant scent, but it still smells clean and very manly.
By your description I would say your body chemistry and AV probably don't blend well together.
Well, after reading this thread, I just had to go out and buy some. Unfortunately, I'm still waiting for my razor, brush, and soap to arrive, so I had to use my Fusion with the fusion Gel.
Smell nice though, and the extreme burning went away, so all is good.
Oh, hi, hello Shave Den dudes.. so my first post here on the site is in the AV thread. I had me some years back when I was but a bachellor. I don't even think I really used it correctly (I kept it on my dresser in the bedroom, what does that tell you). Anyway, I don't know what happened to it, I either threw it away or dumped it out at some point.
Picked up a bottle a few months back and am now an avid fan. I love the feel when putting it on, I love how it makes my face feel, even hours later I like the scent, but it really isn't an issue because, I don't need to use so much that the people around me actually smell it.
What I find interesting is that it actually compliments some of my colognes, ranging from expensive stuff like Floris 89 all the way to Ogallala Bay Rum.
I like the Musk too, but I actually use that as a cologne, it's just a bit too strong of a scent to be right on my face...
on a side note, I recently picked up a bottle of Skin Bracer.. LOVE IT TOO. It wears very sweet after several hours, even leaning towards sandalwood or vetiver.. I don't know what the notes are but I really dig it.
Wife: Honey, I just found a bottle of Aqua Velva in the refrigerator. Do you know anything about that?
Me: I put it there, dear. I thought if I chilled it, it would add to the cooling affect when I splash it on my face.
Wife: Sweet heart, do you have a drinking problem?
Me: Hun? What are you talking about?
Wife: I’ve heard that sailors drink Aqua Velva and you were in the Navy. Do you have more bottles of AV hidden around the house?
Me: Hey, I don’t have a drinking problem. I read at the shaving forum that putting AV in the fridge gave it a little extra zing when you splash it on the face.
Wife: Shaving forum? You belong to a shaving forum? Mother warned me that she thought you were a little strange.
Just another day in the life of a shaving geek.
Ice Blue and Musk in some fancy bottles.
An AV sticky that's had a year hang time. Sweeeet Velva :signs021. Doesn't get daily use but it's in the rotation.
The truth behind Aqua Velva
I have it on VERY good authority that the super secret, active ingredient in each and every bottle of Aqua Velva is........
1 solitary drop of Chuck Norris' sweat.
Is that a treet in your picture? What are your thoughts on it? I bought one last Winter, and just have not been able to justify to myself using it on my face....shaves like a rusty pair of scissors if you all know what I mean
My dad bought me a bottle of Stetson when I first started shaving.
Skin Bracer smells like Play-Doh.
Bought a bottle of Aqua Velva Ice Blue tonight just to see what the buzz is all about. What a clean, classic, timeless scent...and it gets even better after the alcohol fades away. I love it!! It will be a permanent fixture in the Ursa shave den.
