My first Stirling experience will happen soon...so many great choices(as I've said before).
Thanks! Chris at RazorPlate.com. He did my Fat Boy too.
Never smelled Creed but I cannot distinguish between Fine Platinum and Floid Black.
I have the soap and balm, but I didn't buy the splash! Now I feel like I'm missing out, bigtime.
Stirling soaps are wonderful and their Coniferous is a favorite of mine. Bonaparte and Glastonbury are first rate too.
I'm going for the Coniferous A.S. as we approach fall-perhaps even their 5.8 soap.
wow, you have the works!!(of EM)
I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on an Executive Man shaving soap but I cannot buy the matching aftershave because it's alcohol-based. In the meantime I know what the Sharp Dressed Man and Green Irish Tweed scents are like now because of my Glacial Eskimo Tuxedo soap!
Get the soap and balm buddy you will love it!!!
Sounds like a "Sterling" idea, bro!
the EM soap was the one I couldn't research on my computer, but Rod sent me the most recent 20 reviews. Great customer service .
"Sterling" "Stoylin'" hey, what the hey? )
I just did a sniff test of the Green Irish Tweed/Aventus vs Rod's balms and they're extremely close. Considering that the balms have other ingredients/content to be an aftershave, that's mighty impressive.
I found the top notes and introduction to be very close, but the scent is still missing the smoky depth and base notes to complete the overall experience of the scent. I will add that executive man is closer than GG's interpretation IMO. I prefer the scent from KO shave (silver), but not the lather performance.
The search continues for a dead ringer...
update-I'm now leaning toward Mtn, Man instead.
