Been for quite some time now intrigued by the bottle. I have to say, it is one of the best looking out there. I eventually couldn't resist and bought one.

Presentation: Superb. The plastic bottle looks like glass and it doesn't feel cheap to the hand. The stickers/labels are well placed and durable. It felt like a quality product.

Price: Very expensive at £18 here in the UK. At Carter & Bond it was marketed/exhibited in the show room as a luxury product.

Scent: Oranges in the bottle. Citrus in the hand. But as others say within 5 minutes the aroma dissipates and disappears altogether.

Feel: It went on my face like a conditioning elixir. It glided on my freshly shaved pores like no balm ever did. No sting. Very soothing. Balms are often greasy, but this gets soaked up by the skin leaving it taut and fresh.

Performance: An hour later and my skin feels very smooth, supple and no razor burn although I shaved with a ATT R2 w/ Feather blade I yet feel comforted.

Overall: I would say this is a great AS and a pleasure to use. Would recommend for days when you plan to wear an EDT and don't want a smell clash.

ouch. Over here it's $12 USD!

It is a great splash. I always have a bottle in rotation.

In winter months i apply it, wait 20-30 min then follow w/ a balm. In summer months, I do a splash alone (Lucky Tiger, Captain's Choice or Stirling usually) and skip the balm.

Good stuff works as a balm or after shave.

Can anyone comment if you have sensitive skin, does this work well for you?

My skin won't tolerate quite a few products but the Lucky Tiger after shave & face tonic was fine. It's very mild, I'd be surprised if you had a reaction to it.
