I received a bottle of this awesome stuff today from a friend in Italy. It's not available in the US yet, but you can view the product on the italian version of proraso.com...click Prodotti, click Verde, click scroll and then click the 7th bullet link on the left.

I already shaved this AM, but gave it a little test run anyway. It's lightly refreshing and moisturizing with a mild scent. I can't describe the initial scent at application or the dry down scent. Maybe a mildly sweet cologne type scent? I'll give it the real maiden voyage after my shave tomorrow AM. I am a dedicated Proraso green splash user. I love the "kick" of the green splash, but I can see this stuff being in the regular rotation.

Ahh, now I got the scent down. Think of the scent you can sniff straight out of a new bowl of green soap or new tube of green cream. That's the exact "freshness" you get from the balm. Here is a pic....

I'll report back tomorrow after my morning shave. I'll bet you I am one of the first in the US to have this stuff Smile

I completed my morning shave and used the green balm. As I stated above, it's lightly refreshing and moisturizing with a mild scent. Not much kick at all, but there is slight cooling from the menthol. Good stuff. Geez, now my green splash is going to be neglected Smile

Looking forward to try it.

I really hope that the green balm is better than the blue and white ones. Both of them were huge disappointments to me... Dodgy

Finally, thanks for the heads up. They only had the splash for this version. I really enjoyed the balm before the reformulation. Does this version have menthol in it?

Yes it does have menthol in it, slight cooling from the menthol.

Me too! I'm hoping that this one is as good as the old version of Crema Liquida that I used to enjoy...

I'll be interested in this when it hits the States. I really like the old Proraso balm and still have several bottles left. Of the new versions, the Proraso Green Tea and Oat aftershave balm is ok, but still a bit below the original. Hopefully, this new one comes closer to the original balm.

I never used the original Proraso balm. The new stuff is very good! I am a dedicated Proraso green splash user. I could never get into balms, but the new green balm will still have a place on my shelf.

Joe has this in stock now at IB, and I got mine in yesterday. After one use, I think its excellent. Very moisturizing and (to me) not greasy.

I've got a bottle of this in transit from Spain, i'm looking forward to giving it a try.

I rarely use balm, but enjoy the rest of the green range.
