    Now that the Shave Den has closed its store, I have been looking for a new online store to buy after shave splashes. I found Sterling Soap Company and just ordered four samples: Bergamot and Lavender, Baker Street, Executive Man and Pharoah's Dreamsicle. Has anyone tried any of Sterling's aftershave splashes, and if so, what are your favorite scents and why?

    I would also appreciate any suggestions for other online shaving stores where I can buy scents like the ones TSD use to sell. Thank you all.

    Executive Man (her pick) and Sharp Dressed Man (mine) are Stirling favorites in my house. I just got a sample of Baker Street, also. That gets high marks as well.

    Thank you for the replies. I very much look forward to trying the scents that I ordered and the ones you recommend. Sadly, my last few sample bottles of TSD splashes are just about finished.

    Barber shop and Sterling Noir are pretty good. Also have the Vanilla Sandlewood, very strong vanilla.

    Sterling splashes are very good, the balms a very good too, the witch hazel & aloe are just OK for me.

    Piacenza: my favorite; a great AdP clone, I need a bottle of the splash.

    Ozark Mountain: my cold weather favorite, a nice piney, resinous scent.

    Executive Man: a solid Aventis clone.

    Margaritas in the Arctic: terrific, similar to QCS Iced Key Like.

    Coniferous: a bit too Home Depot lumber yard for my liking.

    Tuscany: like a blend of Ozark Mountain and Piacenza.... I need a full size bottle.

    Vetiver: jury is still out.

    I tend to gravitate twards the darker tobacco type scents and find these 2 are my favorite scents from Stirling.

    Stirling Gentlemen smells amazing. Would also recommend Haverford as it is by far the best dupe of this particular scent i have encountered.

    Bergamot & Lavender witch hazel & aloe- it is relaxing ( it’s a dark lavender)and the witch hazel and aloe are superb.
    Unscented with menthol witch hazel & aloe-the menthol is excellently strong, but not to Cryogen levels and again the witch hazel and aloe is the best I’ve found.

    I have the Unscented now(no menthol), teaming it with my The Soap Exchange soap(Lumberjack). I've had a few looks at the Bergy&Lavvy...perhaps will make a few more.

    I may give Gentleman another go as part of the upcoming sample set I'm developing. After all it did come in #2 to Sandpiper for my first set. And that was ahead of Xecutive Man and Sharp Dressed Man. Tough competition!!
