I love the fresh smell of Mennon Skin Bracer...lasts a long time and leaves a cool, fresh manly smell my wife likes!I wonder if anyone evermade a cologne with a scent to match or if and colognes available have a similar scent?

I've used Mennen Skin Bracer for over 50 years and I've never seen or heard of a cologne like that. Whatever is in it, it is a one of a kind scent.

Yes,
I've been looking at product since the sixties and have not encountered anything
similar to Mennen. However, I do recall a drug store knock-off that was around for about five years ( mid 60's). The "Bracer" was in its hay day at that time.

It is good stuff. I don't often use it after a shave but I do freshen up with it often at random times. I really like the powder scent and its such an iconic American aftershave.

I just recently got to try Skin Bracer, thanks to Fab who brought it on his latest trip to Portugal, and I must admit it's very different from what I was expecting.
Looking at the color, I was expecting a minty fresh lotion, but instead it has a pretty sweet scent. At first I wasn't very excited with it, but I have been enjoying it more lately. Don't know of any cologne with a very similar scent to it, though.

No problem. It is also Mennen, not Mennon. Biggrin

I love Skin Bracer. Despite the fact that I rotate through about 8+ splashes, and am always looking for another great one, Skin Bracer might just be my single favorite. I think it has an indefinable clean smell.

Skin Bracer is my favorite drug store aftershave. I've liked the scent ever since I was a little boy and my father used it.

Out of the drugstore aftershaves I have in my collection. Skin Bracer seems to leave my face feeling the best post shave too.

Wish there was a cologne that smelled similiar this scent. I'd buy it. But haven't found one yet.

Some mornings when I've already shaved at night. I still spash on some skin Bracer, right before I leave the house for work.Smile

I'm not a big fan of mentholated products, but Skin Bracer has just the right amount to leave my skin crisp as opposed to frozen. I love the scent too, it and Clubman are neck and neck for my favorite barbershop classic.

It was always one of two my Dad used, the other being Old Spice.

Love SB... and love the price tag, too.
Such a great scent, and one that my wife tolerates (big plus).

I've never used Skin Bracer because I have Barbasol Brisk which I believe is just a clone of SB. Its a nice scent and the menthol is nice in the summer.
When my Brisk is gone I guess I'll just grab a bottle of the original to try out.

IMHO there is no real substitute for the original.

I'm not a fan of the scent of Skin Bracer. I wish I was because the I don't think there are many aftershaves out there that are better for the skin than Skin Bracer.

Skin Bracer is perfect for a hot Florida summer morning.
