A few days ago I was in an Odds and Ends store picking up a few things books,tools ,pewter ware.(the store has a highly varied stock).After checking out I noticed a 1 oz bottle of Jade East cologne for a buck.I snagged it and handed the owner a buck and slipped it in my pocket.This was my first sighting of this scent in the wild.

When I got home I had my wife and her sister give it a sniff.The wife gave it a tepid approval,her sister was a bit more enthusiastic about it.

I like it,it reminds me of Hai Karate .I had a bottle of that back in the late 70's/early 80's.From what I understand Hai was a take off of Jade.This particular bottle is from the Swank Co. ownership of the scent.I expect it will pair well with vintage Avon Tai Winds after shave,maybe some Brut type a/s although I'm not sure about that.

You never know what you will stumble over in these type stores.

Nice find especially for a buck. This certainly brings back memories of an era past. There are still plenty of old school after shaves and colognes around that never leave us.

Good lord, I have not thought about Jade East in over 35-40 years.

Good score. I just bought some Dana Canoe aftershave, reminding me of the same era.
