    Which one is the best? Tell me. Now.

    I kid, I kid. :D

    But really, I am looking for a recommendation. Is there a difference between a cologne and an afterhsave? I don't like the smell of most colognes. In seeking a bay rum, I would be looking for something to use as an effective aftershave, something soothing. A pleasant smell is, of course, desirable. I don't want a list of ingredients that reads like a package of Twizzlers. I prefer no dyes. Any insight is appreciated.

    Krampert's, or Captain's - both now available from Bullgoose. Very, very nice, light scents. Krampert's offers excellent skin care as well. Highly recommend both of these!

    Just bought a bottle on the world wide web. Woooo! Did the look of their bottle sway me? Yes. That and the fact that they distnguish between cologne and after shave. Can't waaaaaaiiiiiiitttt!!!!

    Just shake it very well before use. I mean that literally. They formula is super saturated with frag oils that must be mixed very well before use.

    Great, now that Outkast song is in my head. "Shake it like a Polaroid pictuuuure . . . "

    Thank you for the advice!

    My favorites are Ogallala Bay Rum and Captain's Choice. My preference for those two is based partly on the fact that they contain witch hazel, which I love, and partly on the fact that they are intoxicating!!!

    I've tried Superior 70 and Master BR, but both of those were just too plain, too underwhelming for my tastes, but others love them so they're worth trying out for yourself.

    Not a fan of Ogallala. Captains choice is really good. I love Superior 70.

    But my favorite is Bootlegger's Bay Rum. It's a mix of Superior 70, Masters, and Pinaud VIBR. It's great and it's cheap!

    Ogallala Bay Rum is my favorite. I've tried a few others, but OBR is much smoother, and the witch hazel in it's ingredients makes my skin happy. Side note - the sandalwood and lime - bay rums from obr are my wifes favorites.

    I've tried many (Captains Choice, Captains CO9T, All the Ogallalas, Superior 70, Masters, Pinaud, Bootleggers, Dominica, Dominica Lime). I could use any of them, their all good, but I seem to Like the Captain's bets. I've not tried Kramperts but hear good things about it. The previous remark about Ogallala is right. I shook and shook and shook my samples but it still came out with little oil droplets floating in it.

    I have only tried St Johns one time and really liked it. I think I am going to get some Kramperts though as it is made right here in Maine.

    I tend to prefer the non-clovey BRs, such as:
    Superior 70
    TSD (especially the cologne)

    Of the cloveys, I like:
    Dominica, then Pinuad
