    I have to admit that Gentleman came in second to Sandpiper with the first sample set I ordered a couple years ago(aftershaves). . I didn't think it would beat out choices 3 and 4 (Xecutive Man and Sharp Dressed man, respectively), but my olfactory bulb had something to say about that.

    Im sooooo glad that Sandpiper got to share in this award! My Amy liked my Sandpiper AS so much that she got me the bath soap and the EdT for Christmas. Those seem like very deserving choices, Paul, nd its been both fun and exciting waiting for you to announce your winners! Thanks for your effort and attention to detail...the awards have a lot of fun to follow!!!

    Just used Electric Sheep, like the way the soap feels. The lemongrass scent is nice.

    Just shave with Electric Sheep and go outside. You will be a human bug repellent!

    Does that mean, according to what I've been reading, (and you're in on this too Perry!), that ES is a Rise clone?

    I don't know, Paul, but I sort of doubt it. It smells like citronella on steroids with a person in a fumigator suit and mask chasing you. It's STRONG! But there are some major devotees of that scent. Rod sent a sample bath soap in Electric Sheep scent and I immediately moved it to a new envelope and sent to @PickledNorthern. It was too much for me.

    Sorry, I should have explained-Rise has citronella, but I wouldn't call it bug dope.

    I love lemongrass as well, it is also one of the few things that keeps the no-see-ums away. All summer my family smells heavy of lemongrass.
    Besides the smell I also like the feel of the mutton tallow soap.

    Thanks for putting the awards together, Paul. That was really awesome of you. I must admit, the Unscented Aftershave winning has to be the underdog Cinderella story of the year!

    Paul what is bug dope? Is that like marijuana for bugs?:)

    well, I use the term" dope" as was described by a writer discussing the best repellants. In his case, he was talkinabout "fly dope".

    Well, Rod, I was at a point where I needed to find a good "match" for the various soaps I have from companies that just sell soaps(that is, no aftershaves). It seems unscented is the best way to go in that regard. I'm glad you enjoyed the progression of the nominations..we'll see who gets nominated next year :).(Or, I should say, we'll see who gets nominated as THIS year rolls along).
