    If I only had one, this would make me happy.

    I'd be happy with Clubman Original, but would have to get the Citrus or Lime one for the heat&humidity. So that'd be 2. WILL POWER, BABY

    I have vintage OS and new OS (enjoy both).
    Regular user and enjoy Clubman.
    I have to modify AV to Blue Steel (AV / Florida Water).
    English Leather is a little strong to start, but mellows out nicely.
    I've never tried Proraso, but would like to.
    Not to step on toes, but CAN'T stand Brute. :sick007:
    It's been a long time since I tried / used Stetson.

    I'd add
    Special Reserves
    Pierre Cardin
    Jovan Musk
    Musk by Cody

    I recall liking Pierre Cardin a lot. Which "Special Reserves" are you referring to?

    Yes, I use it in rotation. In fact, I use the Cool Wave deodorant daily.

    I enjoy several of these, but Clubman Special Reserve is my weekend scent - a more manly scent was never devised, methinks! Love the Lime Sec in the summer, especially with a little added menthol!

    I like it. I'm glad CVS has it so I can "ship" it home for free.

    I didn’t realize Proraso was a drug store cologne. And I burned out on Stetson in the 80’s, but other than that I’m with you.

    Proraso isn't a drugstore AS. It maybe in Italy, but everywhere else it's £15.00 a bottle.

    They are EDT's head down to Boots, Superdrug, Savers, Tesco or Sainsbury's for Tabac, Old Spice or Brut. You may find Blue Stratos or possibly Denim too. The best AS's have to be bought online although healthstores did carry Speick a few years ago. Proraso, Musgo Real et al are available at trendy barbers.

    Yes, now I call it "New Spice".

    Proraso shave products are available at Shoppers Drug Mart here in Eastern BC, Canada.
