    Margaritas in the Arctic soap and aftershave just east of you in Freehold. Right off of Rt.33. :Animatedfrozensmily:

    Used the Green this morning after a shave with Catie's Bubbles "Sunrise".
    Set up my day!

    I love both the green and red Proraso Aftershaves. I like the green on a hot day or when I shave at night because it's scent fades fast I like the red in the morning because it has soothing oils in it and smells for a few hours.

    If you're talking about NY Shaving, I went there after work one day. Website said they close at 1700. Got there at 1630. Closed tighter than a drum. Sent an email complaining about that. No answer back. Took my trade elsewhere.

    Used the Green again for Menthol Monday. Nice and cooool.

    I did not know about any NY Shaving and I'm not sure what made you think I was referring to a store. If you like AOS there is one of those near me in the Freehold Raceway Mall.

    NY Shaving Co. has a production and store facility in Freehold. They are an artisan soap company.

    Started & finished my Eclipse shave with The Green. I like the scent but wish it lasted longer.

    Maybe a cologne aficionado will give us a clue to something similar?

    I did not know that. I've been living here for over ten and working in the area for well over twenty. I grew up farther east in Eatontown. Thanks.

    Proraso GREEN pre-shave, shave cream, shave soap and after shave splash lotion are all wonderful and time-tested and revered products - menthol/eucalyptus and very cooling.
    Proraso RED pre-shave, cream, soap and after shave splash are more woodsy - sandalwood and shea butter, and just as soothing and delightful but less of a smack across the face compared to the green.
    Proraso BLUE cream and after shave balm are out of this world, and are my very favorite Proraso scents by far (aloe vera and vitamin E). I wish they'd do a soap, a pre-shave cream and a splash! I've written to them begging... :angry017:
    The Proraso WHITE is calming and soothing and designed for those with sensitive skin (green tea and oatmeal). I sometimes use the soap and the balm and they're nice. haven't tried the pre-shave cream yet.

    I see that Proraso has just released three completely new after shave splash scents as well. I tried one and thought it was pleasant but nothing to write home about.

    Just my 2¢...

    I picked up a bottle of the Blu balm. Great scent that reminds me of muscadine grapes picked fresh from the vine. Does the shave cream smell the same as the balm?

    I've tried two of the new colognes and I like them but the original lineup is still king. The green splash is out of this world, the red splash is excellent, and the scent of the blue cream is unbeatable. I also love the smell of the white cream. I wrote to Proraso asking for a blue splash and pre-shave as well but it's not happening. They struck gold with the four original scents and I only wish that they would've expanded the blue lineup while giving us colognes of all four.

    Just about the same! That scent just knocks me out. Wonderful.

    I'd stated above that Proraso had introduced three new after shaves, but I meant to say balms. They're not in the 'striped' lineup. The one I tried was pleasant but not up to their original lineup, as you found out.

    After a nice shave with Catie's Bubbles "Sunrise", splashed on some Green and my day was off to an outstanding start!

    But what's the difference how long the scent lasts? We neutralize it immediately post shave with witch hazel, after shave splash and balm, no? I figure it's only the last thing that hits your face that'll matter.

    By the way - what's that tube of Bigelow shave cream like? I see it's made by Proraso.
