I prefer a lotion type AS over a splash but wanted to try the Ogallala since I see a lot positive things said about it, so I got the sample pack to try. The sandalwood is definitely my favorite, the wifes to. Lime and peppercorn is also nice. The other 3 kind of burn when applied. It wasnt what I would call a normal sting when applying AS but more of a mild chemical burn, at least that is the best way I can describe it. I did use two of them without a shave as I was more curious of the smell so shaving didnt have anything to do with it. The burn lasted a good minute or so, I was about to wash it off then it started getting better. Anyone else have a similar result? What I did like was I could smell the scent all day long but it wasnt overpowering. My wife couldnt smell it unless she got close which is perfect for me. Sandalwood is one I would order again, feels good when splashed on and has a very pleasant scent.
