I have not been an aftershave guy, but last year my wife & kids gave me some Royall Lymes and I love the cleansing afterburn – plus the scent is so perfect in the warmer weather. During the cooler, drier months, I will occasionally use Simpson’s Unscented balm, GFT Coral Skin Food or some samples from T&H.

As spring has FINALLY shown up, I was thinking about some alcohol based aftershaves again – I saw the Fine products mentioned in someone’s “shave of the day” or favorite products posting (apologies to whoever that was – you are owed enabling points) and I became curious.

I had to buy some Father’s Day things off Amazon the other day and I found I could add the Fine aftershave as a “ride along” with free shipping. I ordered Fine American Blend and two varieties of Florida Water, which have yet to arrive.

But…Oh Man, does that Fine American Blend rock the house! The pleasant sting, the old fashion masculine scent and the amazing post-evaporation skin feel. Both my wife and daughter commented on how great it smells and I am loving it.

I sense that this could be a slippery slope, so I am holding the line until the two variations of Florida Water arrive and then I will see how far I am willing to slide

American Blend is my fav Aftershave. I like the way you describe it. It instantly took the #1 spot in my rotation. I also enjoy Fine's Platinum, but AB is the best. !!!

American Blend is my favorite so far. XXX and Platinum are tied in second place.

I just ordered some American blend (and the matching soap).

I would have ordered Platinum as well, but the only vendor that ships Fine A/S internationally was out of stock.

The Italian Citrus is not available any longer on the Fine site. The following announcement is provided. Too bad, it was my favorite. I hope it isn't gone for good.

*** INGREDIENTS NECESSARY TO PRODUCE THIS FRAGRANCE HAVE BECOME UNAVAILABLE. FUTURE AVAILABILITY IS UNCERTAIN. ***

I just picked up a sample of the American Blend. Unfortunately, this is also a great scent! Make room for another AS.

I have the old American Blend and the old Fresh Vetiver as well as the new American Blend And the new Platinum. The old blend is much better. I like menthol but the new blend is dominated by menthol. I prefer the old blend. I will have to move on to something else.

Update: http://www.reddit.com/r/wicked_edge/comm...fine_mess/

Way to go.
