I received bottles of Jade East aftershave & cologne today. I've never used it but I like the smell in the bottle. My mother-in-law said it was very popular in the 60's. Can't wait to try it.

I tried the aftershave and I like it. The scent seems familiar to me but I can't place it.

I got some Fine American Blend. Smells great, but I started sneezing uncontrollably after I sniffed it. Sad

It could be a coincidence, or I might have to move up my morning Claratin to before I shave.

Bummer. I have the American Blend but don't care for the scent. I have the Snake Bite which I like & want to try the Clean Vetiver.

I'll give the American Blend another try in the next day or so. Aftershaves are always a bit of a gamble for me. I'm never sure how I'll react. Perhaps I should look into samples.

From the look of the ingredients, I think even those with hyperactive immune systems like mine wouldn't have an issue with Snake Bite.

I've heard good things about Clean Vetiver.

Jade East was, and is a nice scent. The old ads featured this stunning Asian model making eye contact with a guy and slowly
signaling attraction with the subtle squint and smile of epicanthric eyelids.
A political group that can remain nameless somehow decided it was seditious during the Vietnam War and it was quietly pulled.Nono

I don't think so but then again I've never tried Hai Karate. Jade East is subtle with a light powdery scent. The exact scent is difficult to explain.

Hai Karate has been out of production for years. my dad had it in his rotation . he liked English Leather, Avon Wild Country and Hai Karate.
Today I ordered Fine American Blend and some Crown Blades. I wanted to order some shave soap, but i am gonna hold off a bit .
