    Now we're getting somewhere. I like that you gave a brief reason why on each. Thank you.

    I don't know Fred, but he got the "New Spice" idea from me. (chuk yuk yuk). I mean, if it isn't Shulton's it can't be Old Spice.

    Every journey needs to start somewhere. I'm a huge music fan- have been forever. If you asked me "What the hell is Exotica, and what 4 albums should I start with?" I'd start you with:
    Arthur Lyman- Yellow Bird
    Yma Sumac- Legend Of The Sun Virgin
    Martin Denny- Baked Alaska
    The Forbidden Sounds Of Don Tiki
    I could give a lengthy explanation of why each album is important and should be included in any fan's collection. Not the best 4, but an essential 4 to help with understanding. My favorite album not even included! I know music, you know aftershave. History, popularity, ingredients, availability, cost, advertising, scent, and feel might all be factors in what you would pull off your shelf and hand to me. This should be a fun exercise!

    What, no Stevie Ray, no Buddy Guy? I'd try some of the Classics if I were you.

    That's a whole other topic. Trying to use a less mainstream example to prove my point of exploring new territory.

    It’s difficult to point to a “strat” aftershave because all strats(aftershave wise) have different pickups depending on who plays them.

    Brut
    Aqua Velva
    A decent Sandalwood
    A decent Bay Rum

    Are a good place to start

    I have never been much of an aftershave person, but long ago I have settled on Superior 70 Bay Rum. It is a nice simple inexpensive bay rum.

    Do yourself a favor and stay away from Aqua Velva. It smells like crap.

    Paul, it's a discount department store/pharmacy. Think "small WalMart".

    I've found THIS website helpful to gain understanding of a scent before purchasing.

    I'm a recovering aftershave junkie, my only advice is don't over spend. You don't need to spend more than $15-20 a bottle for great juice.
