Okay, finally getting around to a review. Thanks again to Bowlturner. Anyway, it is true that the first scent is of cigarette butts left in stale coca-cola. That said, it kind of grows on you after a while, especially if you are in to heavier vetiver scents. It seems to take a little more water in my AOS super badger to get a good lather going, but once there the lather is very thick and moisturizing. With a Feather blade loaded in an EJ89, two passes, the combo produces a pretty good shave. In fact, I just got a new tub for Father's Day. I alternate it with Martin de Candre depending on my mood. On my vetiver days, I combine it with some Encre Noir, and Ruh Khus oil (which is a whole nother thing!). So bottom line is that if you like the heavy, dark scents, this could be for you.

And the other is...?
Tabac. I've tried it a couple of times to see if my nose changed but it hasn't.
Hmm. Got me some Tabac as well. But for sheer stinkiness, the French Vetiver wins hands down.
