So far Captain's Choice, Ogallala, Krampert's Finest (thanks to ShadowsDad for the awesome sample), and Honeybee Gardens, Booster, Geo F Trumper and Lucky Tiger have all not met my expectations.

The closet are Krampert's Finest and Honeybee Garden — they're the only two that lingered on for about an hour or so.

To my thinking, strength and staying power are different.

You just aren't going to get that much duration out of an aftershave. They aren't designed for that. Have you looked for a Bay Rum cologne?

The scent of pure bay rum is fleeting and more of a top note . That is why a lot of AS' s add clove, pepper and other fragrances to lengthen the scent.

To get staying power you are going to have to use a cologne that has a more spicy note. It will not be bay rum dominant.

Have I? No, not really. I did end up with GFT Bay Rum, but that was a horrible scent unlike anything else I've smelled.

I'm starting to think I should combine a few of these BR aftershaves together and see if it'll make it stronger.

Pinauds is fairly long lasting, but as mentioned above it is via letting it rest on the clove scent. Bay Rum in and of itself is a fairly fleeting scent.

Just joined the forum.

I picked up some Ogallala cologne, not aftershave listed as double strength and it is what it says, strong.

Master's hangs around to me. I prefer Captain's & Ogalla though. I have noticed that if you wash you hands, rub you damp hands over your face, it seems to reactivate the scent. But that may just be me.

Domenica Bay Rum lingers...not really long, but lingers.

A good daily driver for me.

Pinaud V.I. Bay Rum lasts a while on me and it burns so good!
