    I am curious to see what everyone's top aftershave splashes are. A top five will do nicely, but if you have 20 that you cant live without...let us know.

    I will start:

    Pinaud clubman and lilac vegetal, aqua velva, fine platinum, lucky tiger, dr. Jons classic, stirling margaritas in the artic and iced pineapple.

    Those are in no particular order.

    You know I'm a Myrsol Man...lol

    But I'm curious about the new Barrister & Man Reserve (Fern)

    PAA / CK have lasted the longest in my experience.

    Usually I just use the aloe cream after a shave. These are only other ones I use.[​IMG] I try to keep it simple.

    Yikes! They all have pretty good longevity. Jitterbug Fougere (aka Frenchie Sauce) was a stand out. Lime Ice Sage was good, tombstone was another one that lasted all day for me.

    Hmmm.....this is tough for me. I always use Nivea sensitive balm as my face is sensitive. I can't imagine a shave without it. But I do like the sting and scent of after shave. It's growing on me.

    Fine American Blend (my favorite)
    Skin Bracer
    Barbasol Pacific Rush
    Aqua Velva
    Florida Water (although the last time I wore it SWMBO made a disparaging comment)
    TSD splashes (Barber Shoppe, Yin Yang, Russian Leather, SubZero)

    My favorites are Wm Neumann (1907, Heartwood, 1911 and Absolute Zero) and PAA (Cavendish, Tombstone, The Beach, Ciderhouse 5, Sk8shop, Magi, Sangre de Drago, Al Fin, Bay Rum and Boozy Barbershop). Cavendish, Ciderhouse 5 and Sk8shop are my strongest and longest-lasting aftershaves. The Wm Neumann's are the most sophisticated and best face feel.

    Murray & Lanman's Florida Water
    Pinaud Lilac Vegetal
    Pinaud / Clubman's Special Reserve
    Clubman's Osage Rub
    Shulton or P&G Old Spice (Heresy? Very same to my nose)
    Aqua Velva Ice Blue
    Dana's Canoe (Very Barbershop, like Clubman)
    Avon in many scents; Wild Country, Bravo, Leather, Oland, & Deep Woods

    I'm still seeking Avon Island Lime, & may order Pinaud's Lime Sec.
    If I commit a shave error I prefer a dose of Cremo Moisturizer. It cost less and works better than Clinique Post-Shave Healer

    I tried a few Bill Neumann samples-quite good, but too expensive to get the regulars.

    Clubman Original
    Aqua Velva(both Ice Blue and Musk)
    Mennen Skin Bracer

    I may well be adding to this list with future purchases of Stirling and Chiseled Face(actually just one from CF).

    Stirling is pretty fantastic all the way around...soaps, aftershaves, brushes, razors, etc. Of course, for the price, tjey are pretty much unbeatable.

    Speick. That's it. Great splash! Good face feel. Nice clean scent that is so subtle I wear whatever EDT I want without clashing. I use others as well, but nothing compares IMO.

    Like all the Pinaud products I enjoy, they are an After Shave/ Cologne.
    S.E. is a tobacco & leather scent that starts off strong and holds well for hours. If you imagine a well worn motorcycle jacket with a cigar in the pocket that's close. A review I read said, "This is what Indiana Jones would smell like". It's not for everyone, as someone else thought it smelled like old men & sadness.

    I use AS splashes for for their healing effect not for the smell. I use perfume cologne so I do not want a strong smelling AS

    Speick
    Luck Tiger face balm
    Homemade AS with vodka (or rum), witch hazel, aloe and other good stuff
    I also some good results with some of the Razorock AS splashes.

    I am testing Poraso AS splash now.
