A variety, of different ones. Only a few I use, on a regular basis, maybe 5. Now, Shulton Old Spice, and Avon Spicy are my two favorites.. I have many many of these. The Shulton Old Spice keeps getting more and more pricey, and less available.
I had to count them. And now that I know that I have 13 splashes, I can't allow that number to remain as I am superstitious. So I have to buy at least one more. Here is what I have for splashes so anyone care to provide some suggestions for the 14th that aren't too expensive? As you can see from what I already have, I'm a cheap bastard.
Pinaud Clubman Special Reserve
*Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanilla
Pinaud Clubman Lilac Vegetal
*Pinaud Clubman Lime Sec
*Pinaud Clubman Citrus Musk
*Pinaud Clubman Virgin Island Bay Rum
*Aqua Velva Ice Blue
*Aqua Velva Musk
Fine American Blend
Fine L'Orange Noir
Old Spice Classic
*Murray & Lanman Florida Water
The ones that are starred are my favorites. The others will not likely be replaced when they are finished.
Maybe you’ve already considered these:
Fine Fresh Vetiver (or Green Vetiver)
I have been pretty consistent with just 1 for the last number of years, but I did pick a tube of balm last winter.
Most days just a splash of cold water is all I use.
Check out Superior 70, just a simple light bay rum. At the store across from my work, a bottle is just north of $3.
I would't say that's unreasonable. Given that some are seasonal, you still don't have one for each day of the month.
Welcome to TSD @Casey71! Glad you signed up and jumped into the conversation. If you have a moment, pass by The Welcome Center and drop an intro. Lots of members like to get to know the new guys, and you can share about your Shave Journey.
Thanks. I have not heard of any of these other than Tabac. I'm also considering Razorock Blue Barbershop splash.
What do you guys think of Clubman Jeris Osage Rub?
I thought about this for a while.
Then it hit me that I don't really want to know. IF I knew, I might think "that's enough" then miss out on a great sent I may love more than bay rum. Although I probably have a couple dozen, I just can't bring myself to count them for fear of ruining a perfectly good run of aftershave acquisition disorder.
Including balms...probably somewhere in the vicinity of 35-40.
6 or 7, but that is slowly growing.
I'd love to try Royal Copee someday.
My suggestion is Gillette Series Cool Wave Splash. A little more expensive than your Clubmen, but not by much.
Thanks. I'm going to pick up a bottle the next time I'm in CVS. Fortunately (or unfortunately) I'm in there regularly to pick up prescriptions.
My CVS is pretty close to me. The staff at the pharmacy know me real well.
I just received a bottle of Razorock Blue Barbershop today. The top isn't as leakproof as it should be so a little had moistened the cap and new of the bottle. I took one whiff and was immediately taken by it. I think this is going to be a permanent member of my den. I've never tried Floid so I can't compare the two. But this stuff smells awesome. Can't wait to use it after my shave tomorrow morning. That brings my splash total to 14.
It's going to take me a long while to get through my two Razrock SOAPS, but since this is about AFTERSHAVEDS, I do declare I need more of the latter than former.
Interestingly, I only have one Razorock soap. Santal Royale, which I really like. I've been wanting to try some others but I need to pare down what I have before buying more.
