We have become the annoying gluten free, cross fitters of the Wetshaving world
Almost as bold as the scent itself.......
We are 'in your face' - quite literally
As of March 1, full-time on the Veg...
I've always loved the Veg. Look what I just found on that auction web site:
Is it true that there is a difference in the older formulation and what is being sold now?
Absolutely. One is older.
GO VEG GO!!! :rah: :wave:
I'm a Veg lifer!
Can someone please describe the scent of the Veg to me.
I heard it once being described as Eau de Gussett from an old folks home. Didn't endear me to it.
Honestly, to me it smells like a field of lilacs and wildflowers on a warm, humid day. I walked past such a field and it smelled exactly like the veg to me. I like it. I wear it a bit in the spring and summer.
Definitely a floral scent, lilacs especially, but also a bit of spice and it's actually a pretty masculine scent. My take on it anyway. I know SWMBO loves it. When I put it on and walk into the room she instantly identifies it with a smile and a big hug.
Everyone should have 12 bottles a year
Aren't these repetitive jokes/discouraging remarks about a scent that apparently a lot of us appreciate getting just a little bit tired....?
Especially maybe in a thread with the intent of sharing the appreciation of it?
How could I have missed this thread?
I have dug the Veg from first sniff....When I first opened my first bottle, I remembered being told not to sniff it out of the bottle...So I kind of sneaked up on it, and sniffed from a distance...What? ...This was great....I put the bottle right up to my nose and took a big strong sniff and that was it...
This is kind of the ultimate ' Classic Barbershop' type scent...
At first I only noticed the Lilacs....Now I dig how the Lilacs have a powedery glow....I love to mix it with Aqua Velva Musk and maybe Clubman Vanilla...It turns it into a more complex AS...But the Lilac scent still dominates, but the other layers work nicely...The above AS Cocktail seems to be quite the compliment getter...and I've never received as much as an unpleasant glance...ha,ha...
Long live the Veg.....and I can see why the Duke made it his Signature AS...I heard a whole list of actors from Wayne's generation loved it...I need to check it out so I don't misquote the article...I'll be back!
And to all who love the Veg....I'm glad we have this Thread to welcome
And to those detracters, all I have to say is....
If loving the Veg is wrong.....I don't want to be right....LOL
I've almost finished my first bottle (use it out of the shower as a body splash mostly) and have a larger bottle on order. The more I use it the more I like it.
Yeah that's the only way I use it these days. Good stuff!
I have decanted my Veg into glass...it really mellows and changes it for the better. I love it more now!
