    Now that my bottle of Old Spice has run out, I've been shaving without aftershave for about two months. I'd like to get back to the morning splash, and would like to try some of DR Harris' shave. http://www.drharris.co.uk/aftershaves

    I've seen folks here recommend http://www.drharris.co.uk/aftershaves/d-r-harris-marlborough-aftershave

    My issue is that it's expensive for something I might not like. http://classicedge.ca/index.php?rou..._id=37&product_id=1305&sort=rating&order=DESC I wonder if they're are smaller testers available?

    Just bought my first bottle of D.R. Harris at Mensessentials store on Danforth Road in Toronto. It's nice to have a bricks and mortar shop with testers and knowledgeable staff.

    I have to say I really like the Windsor aftershave I bought. The scent at first is a bit strong, and it doesn't quite give the after shaving sting I like, but once the day is on the Windsor scent is subdued for most of the day.

    Though you have to watch out on web orders, as Windsor is one of the few D.R. Harris aftershaves that is available in both a traditional glass bottle and a plastic hotel-shampoo-like bottle. This is one of the reasons I went to the actual shop, as I didn't want the plastic squeeze bottle - not for $43 thank you very much.

    I find my recent bottle of D.R. Harris' Windsor aftershave is almost odourless and doesn't have much of that "aftershave" sting. My previous bottle was more fragrant and impactful. To a small degree I wondered if the new one had been tampered with and diluted with dihydrogen monoxide. I'll see how the next bottle goes. My Windsor toilet water is good, perhaps I've just become desensitized to the reduced aroma of the aftershave version.

    I have a sample of Windsor and noticed that it is not very strong at all, but still has a nice scent and is stronger than Marlborough.

    I have to chime in.
    All of the D R Harris scents already mentioned are worthy of accolades but I have to give a shout out for their Sandalwood.
    One of the finest sandalwood aftershaves you'll find (IMHO).

    I have the sandalwood and it is one of the few sandalwoods I like, and it makes my skin feel nice too.

    Not a huge fan of the sandalwood. Pif'd it.

    Unless this virus keeps me home, I’m going to visit the D.R. Harris flagship store in London, UK in August.

    Off topic, but I love the Marlborough Cigarettes theme music from the Magnificent Seven. I'm happy one can still love the music without lighting up. All right, back to shaving.

    I have the Harris sandalwood. I find it oily or greasy.
