    I am putting together an order from TSD, and am wondering about scent conflicts if I start to layer post-shave treatments. Does the scent from witch hazel last? If I plan to apply a scented AS splash or milk after the witch hazel, am I safer to just go with unscented WH?

    The scent from witch hazel is gone before it's completely dry, so have no fear and splash away.

    Also scents don't linger with the TSD milk either, in my experience.

    Unscented WH, true. I use Dickenson's. No issues putting an AS such as Brut or Clubman, or a spritz of cologne on top of it.

    However, I've found that I can still detect the faint scent of roses 6-7 hours after applying Thayer's Rose Petal WH with Aloe Vera. If I'm using the Thayer's, I don't follow up with anything else.

    I first apply a small amount of Proraso Dioibarba Aftershave Lotion (Liquid), followed by a liberal amount of Lilac Vegetal (mixed 1 part water to 2 parts Veg), and top it off with just a few drops of patchouli oil. Smells great to me, with no weird objectionable conflicts. I say layer away!
