Any thoughts on this line? I don't need another AS but that's beside the point. Rolleyes I'm always looking for healing ASs but scent is a nice bonus. My daily preferences include Alt Innsbruk and my Speick/Musgo Real blend.

It is a quality aftershave but it lacks character in my opinion. For the MSRP, you can definitely do better. I do like their emulsion and the shaving cream is supposed to be excellent.

I have both the White Moss and the Cedar and I almost never use them.

Thanks, Phil. You've made it easy for me as I have plenty of aftershaves without much character. Undecided

Perhaps a Musco Real fan will chime in with options. I really like the healing properties of MR but don't care for the "sticky" consistency (from Lanolin I believe). Thus my blend of MR + Speick.

You may want to try La Toja.

+1 I think you would probably like the La Toja Classic.

Probably not helping, but I will say that the Acca Kappa cedro is probably my favorite scent. I still have quite a few aftershaves to try though.

I should have added YMMV. Biggrin

Thanks Guys - the suggestion of La Toja is a good one - and - made me remember I have a (dusty) bottle. Blush Used it after today's shave and I must say, it's very nice. Not quite as healing as my blend but very, very good. In fact, it has a little bit of the same feel I get from Musgo Real with its lanolin component. WOnder if it also has lanolin?

I'm terrible at this but I'd say La Toja has a fresh, slightly floral/herbal scent. Very nice. From what I recall, its scent is different than the shave soap.
