Whats your current aftershave

Recommended Posts

When I stick the Hugo Boss on nobody compliments it.

 

I also buy this cheap shit from the shop for everyday use, only 5€. Loads of people say, "Oh, that smells nice, what is it."

Bought Sauvage aftershave balm and parfum last month. Smells great but tye only problem is virtually every time I go out at least 2 or 3 people have blasted tons on and you can smell it instantly. 

 

A bit like Paco Rabanne Millions and Creed Aventus.

I love me some Aventus but it's definitely a projection monster, a little goes a very long way indeed.

Tuscany. I've been using it since the mid 80's so it's a bit of a signature smell. I'll have to find something else though because it's been discontinued.

Not ideal for someone who doesn't like change and is more than a bit stuck in his ways.

As far as aftershave goes, I'm as cultured as Simon. Gaultier and Issey Miyake are the only two I wear. Had a bottle of the red Lacoste once which was quite nice.


Still mostly only these two (fuck you @Carvalho Diablo). Have been wearing the same ones since I was 18. I’m afraid of change too.

Also got reacquainted with this which I had when I was younger as well.

That CK one is dirt cheap (even cheaper than the other dirt cheap ones in this post!) so good for everyday use and you don’t have to “worry” about it running out before Xmas/Father’s Day which is usually my excuse to stock up. It’s a nice fragrance though. It doesn’t smell cheap. At least not to a common twat like me.
 

Speaking of Father’s Day, they bought me this one this year because the usual Issy one wasn’t in the shop…

… and I fucking hate it. I don’t want to upset the kids though, so I’m wearing it most days to sort of get it out of the way. This only reinforces my fear of change. Stick to what you know, which in my case is next to fuck all. 
 

I need to get a bottle of the red Lacoste one for old time’s sake.

Acqua di Gio and Cool Water, infrequently.

 

Haven't been able to smell for 20 years or more, so I just stick with ones I remember smell shit rather than take someone else's word for it.

That Jeremy Fragrance guy recommended Tom Ford Tobacco Oud as a top knicker wetter. What the cunt didn't say is that is costs £198 for a 50ml bottle. 

I had a sample of Tom Ford Tabacco Vanille, apparently it had the same "knicker dropping" qualities. Well not on me it didn't, it smelled like cloying fudge, really unpleasant.

 

I think a big part of a fragrance's success or failure is down to an individuals skin. I like citrus, fresh and salt based aftershaves, the sweeter ones do not agree with my rugged manliness.

I had a bottle of ‘Balck Noir’ a couple of years back and that was great, real depth to it, so much so the wife lifted it and called it her own.

 

The above is the reason I have to hide my ‘Terre D’Hemmes’ which is insanely lovely and gets commented upon all the time for how nice it is.
