Any thoughts?  Looking for chemical-free, high-quality ingredients, great scent.

Have you tried B&M Kyovu? I find that this splash works really well for me as far as alcohol free splashes go.

Thayers is the benchmark.  Maggard's is equally nice.

I've been using alcohol splashes exclusively, so no.  How's the scent on the Kyovu?

Cant remember if it has alcohol or not but the B&M Latha splash is nice! I also agree that anything with witch hazel is a good choice. Sterling has a number of them that are witch hazel.

I only tried the Original which is based on his Seville scent. Very fresh clean and citrusy. I believe he has others like Bay Rum and Cheshire. If you like those B&M scents I think you would like the kyovu

I'd highly recommend Acqua di Parma Collezione Barbiere balm and Antica Barbieria Colla Apricot Hull. These are by far the two best non-alcohol aftershaves I've yet tried.

Scents sound great, but unfortunately their toner contains Tetrasodium EDTA which I won't use on my skin.

So, more balms than anything?

I guess, personally prefer splashes, but all of the alcohol-free ones seem to contain funky chemicals (probably to keep everything uniformly mixed).

Yeah. That's why I stick with the splashes with alcohol as well.

My Bey Shave tonic comes without alcohol, but does contain witch hazel and other good things. It's the best non-alky a/s I've tried. I happen to like bay rums, in this case it's real rum substituting, but the scent is way milder than a straight-up bay rum.

I've thought about picking up a couple of the scented Thayer products but I usually like whatever type of slash I use whether it be alcohol based or not to have a little staying power so haven't pulled the trigger. Can anyone comment on the scent strength of the scented Thayer products?

I find most of them fairly strong. They don't linger for an extended period but I can definitely smell them.

Fiori & Frutta, but very, very hard to find.

Dr Harris Pink, but still contains a small amount of alcohol.

I've heard good things about Dr. Harris Pink but have never had the chance to smell it. What is the scent like?
