    I have been using Clubman's VI Bay Rum, since I started into Wet Shaving. I like it, but it does not have any staying power, at least for me. For me, after an hour, I can barely pick up the scent.

    I am looking for a high quality Bay Rum Aftershave , with staying power, more like the old time Bay Rum Aftershaves, from back in the day. I am sure the good ones will not be cheap, but I don't want to, nor can I afford to pay crazy prices. I would not mind spending, in the $20/$25 range for a 4oz to 8oz bottle. I have been reading all kinds of reviews and to be honest, I have confused myself, beyond repair!

    Any help will be appreciated!

    Wrong...Dominica, Meehan's or St. John's. :)

    Dominica is the best smelling. But no staying power, or availability at the moment.

    Im not a big Bay Rum fan, but really like the scent of Ogallala Limes & Peppercorn or Sage & Cedar both smell decent. Staying power is not as long as a cologne, but can still detect it a few hours later which is about normal for A/S.

    You can get them in a sampler pack for a decent price. Comes in 2oz bottles of each of their scents.

    This is the correct answer as far as I am concerned. Great stuff. Witch hazel based too.

    I need to check out the 3 that Primo suggested and Krampert’s. I have only heard of one, the Dominica, but it's no longer available, as I understand it.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I currently have, and enjoy, Stephan's...."Fragrant Skin Toner".(but it's Bay Rum).

    It's not gone forever. Just not sure how long it will take them to rebuild from hurricane Maria. There is another one also made on Dominica called Grand Bay that can still be found here and there. Maggard has some.

    Ogallala makes a "double strength" bay rum that definitely improves the longevity on me, and I enjoy its traditional scent. Pinauds VIBR is usually thought of as an aftershave with good projection and staying power, but everyones body chemistry is different so its hard to tell why it
    doesn't stick around for you. My Ogallala lasts longer on me than my VIBR though.
