    Clubman original is a solid choice to start with and has been since 1810. From there, I would recommend....

    * Mr Fine American Blend

    * Floid "blue"

    * Myrsol line

    * Royall Lymes

    Coming guys. No Aqua velva? A little splash after slicking back the lid with some Brylcreem?

    Thayer's witch hazel for the semi-daily shave. I've got a drawer of other stuff to choose from for nicer occasions

    Since 1981 - Polo Aftershave. Not cologne, just aftershave.

    Yep - and I shave against the grain, every single day including Sundays. As smooth as a baby's bottom. And then a shower, followed by liquid fire aftershave application. It's the best way to start your day.

    Not since Boot Camp and the "Mug Jug". About a gallon of straight alcohol with a couple of bottles of Aqua Velva for scent. Everyday. That will kill everything and feels like napalm.

    Clubman goes on ok, but after a couple of hours the smell changes and is to sweet for my liking. It is cheap though.

    43399FBC-D4A0-43A9-9C45-EBB220F011D0.jpeg Bay Rum. Worked for grandad, works for me. Women love that lingering boozy scent and a 5:00 shadow at the end of the day.
