    What is your favorite of the Clubman aftershaves? I've tried the original, Special Reserve and a sample of Vanilla. The original is my favorite with Vanilla being a close second. What is your favorite of the classic brand?

    I just ordered the virgin island bay rum. Hope I like it.

    The Standard Clubman is probably my favorite. The Vanilla I found too light & floral—and it disappeared too quickly. The Bay Rum was okay—prefer the Ogallala version.

    I tried a sample of the VI bay rum. I've never used bay rum prior to that so I can't compare it to anything but it had a smoky-cinanmony scent and lasted all day. Quite nice, actually.

    I still struggle on if I like special reserve or not. To me, initially, it kind of has that "Walmart men's room after being cleaned" fragrance but after a while of wearing it I don't mind it. The stuff lasts like no other

    I do my grocery shopping there at night and sometimes when nature calls I see folks in there scrubbing the urinals. (Maybe they use Arko? Lol)

    That makes me wonder if a urinal soap would lather well. (of course it would have to be new ;))

    I tend to favor Pinaud Clubman or Lime Sec. Both are well received by SWMBO

    I got a sample pack of them all for Christmas 3 or 4 years ago and liked them all more or less except for the LilacVeg. I have since bought full bottles of Clubman, V.I. Bay Rum, and Vanilla, and have repurchased the Vanilla.

    I like V.I. Bay Rum and at some point will try the Special Reserve.

    I've heard special reserve called "it's like the original clubman but on steroids"

    You've got to try the Lilac Vegetal, you'll either love it or hate it.

    You'll either love it or hate it. I personally love it but I like the Master's a little better. Go easy the first time you use it. The first time I tried it was right after a nice close shave and it burned like hell. Love the burn!

    I would have to say the standard Clubman is my favorite.

    I've tried all the Clubmans AfterShaves except Vanilla...This is my Clubmans most to least liked order:
    1)Original(still one of my all time favorite AfterShaves),
    2)Virgin Island Bay Rum( will definately let you know if you've shaved too close),
    3)Lilac Vegital( you will either love or hate the Veg),
    4)Special Reserve(I won't be replacing it once it's gone)..
    I can't wait to try the Vanilla wish it was sold locally........:)

    I never liked alcohol based aftershave because of the burn but my old skin must be getting tougher, I am able to use it more and more. Plus I read somewhere about the disinfecting properties of using it after shaving. Figured I could always use some disinfecting.
