Has anyone here used any of the old vintage Royall aftershaves? If so, what are your impressions? Thanks.

I've never used one but if I remember right I think I've seen leisureguy use them on his blog. You could try searching his blog but you might have more luck just emailing him. His blog can be viewed at leisureguy.wordpress.com

When were the vintage Royall aftershaves produced? I have the Royall Limes and Royal Bay Rhum in my collection but doubt that is what you had in mind.

I may be mistaken, in fact its quite likely, but I believe that I might have read somewhere that the products were reformulated sometime in the 1990s.

That could be. I know that around 2010 production was moved from Bermuda

I think that they were reformulated. I used them in college and they are quite different now based on a small sample set that I received.... but so is my nose so take that with a grain of salt. Confused
There is now a Royall Vetiver in addition.

The musk is a very earthy and different scent. I think they used to be called "all purpose lotions" and I used them as colognes but have never tried them as aftershaves. I should dig them out and give them a shot again.
Very nice scents. Unobtrusive and they last fairly well on my skin.

I don't know if the Royall Lime I used was "vintage" but I liked it. I found that the Royall Lime gave a bit more sting than my typical alcohol based aftershave. The scent was nice, but like most citrus scents it didn't last too long. I did use it as both an aftershave and cologne.

The Musk and Vetiver scents both get positive reviews and I intend on picking those up next to try out.

I have both the lime and the musk. I picked them up on a trip to bermuda in 94', love them both and use them sparingly!
