I love the smell of the shave soap and when I caught wind that Joe was going to have a AS splash made WOW! Who else couldn't wait and picked this up today?

Alcohol and fragrance? I don't know... I'm sure it smells nice, but let us know how it feels,

I'm a little sceptical too. I currently use the RR King Louis AS and it's great stuff.

Why is everyone skeptical? I have the Fine American blend and it smells awesome! Is it price? Bottle size? Ingredients?

I just find it hard to believe Joe could do better than the previous AS. Here's the ingr. of the KL AS: Orange Blossom Water, Witch Hazel Water, Grain Alcohol, Menthol, Aloe Vera, Jojoba, Olive Oil, Essential Oil of Lavender.

Actually the American blend feels surprisingly good. Hasn't dried out my skin or anything.

I'm skipping it because I really don't care for menthol. It's sure to be a winner for those that do if the scent is close to the new soap.

I definitely want to try a bottle based purely on scent(my past experience with the scent in other products both RR and ADP) and the fact that it's a splash...I hope XXX A/S doesn't sell out like the XXX soap did...I want to wait until I have a few more items to add to my next I.B. orderLightbulb...I wish this A/S dropped the same day as Soz and S.V., I would have gladly included it in that orderAngel

I've seen Joe mention that he doesn't see it lasting past the end of the month.

In the American blend I couldn't tell it had menthol. It's the last thing on the ingredient list. And with the cooling you get from the alcohol its no big deal. I would order some. Even though you don't like menthol you won't be disappointed. Trust me.

I don't think it will last the end of the month either. Since he introduced the original XXX everyone has been asking for a splash AS. The next question is how long until he gets another shipment! Cool

OK, OK, I ordered TWO bottles just because I like the scent of XXX a lot and you never know if there will be another shipment in the future of this A/S...These will last me through the year and also through my last couple tubs of XXX-T...without the soap is the aftershave as useful/valuable? I hope it's a great A/S(this is my first time trying FINE A/S), but I'm not sure what else it will pair nicely w/yet!?

It smells amazing and did not dry me out like I thought it would at all. I was very surprised. Minimal ingredients. I especially see it working great in the summer. Great Stuff! Get some before it's gone for awhile.

used the XXX AS tonight and it was great! very mild, if any menthol sensation, BUT tremendous moisturizing and the scent made my wife come from the next room and ask what I had just used, because she hoped I actually ordered extra on this one.... Blush Biggrin

Funny you mentioned ordering extra... I received my first bottle about a week ago and immediately ordered two more bottles.
