After reading about the Denim line of aftershaves for a while I ran across a seller on the net that had good prices.So I ordered the green Musk a while back.My review of that is posted in this section.Last week I ordered the Original and the Black scents and they came in ahead of schedule and were very well packaged.This is my review of the Original scent.

   The a/s comes in an attractive  blue box containing a heavy glass 100ml/3.4oz bottle with a black hexagonal cap.The liquid is of a watery  consistency  amber-gold in color.Scent wise it is reminiscent of English Leather it has the sharpness of the opening notes of EL without the soft leather scent.It reminds me a lot of a blend I used to make  that was EL and Colonia 1800 Tobacco with a bit of witch hazel.Although tobacco flower is not listed as a  component of Denim.The a/s goes on rather strong but within an hour it  is about 90-95% faded away.I get faint whiffs of it through the day,pretty much after the drydown it stays close to the skin.The scent  is rather nice,now I'll have to find the EdT.The wife  gave it a thumbs up.
I have not had a rough shave since buying so I cannot really comment on its healing qualities.

I rather like it esp since I do not smell like everyone else  and will post back when I have a rough shave.

According to the net this line was launched in the 70's with Original,Black and Musk.From what I gather it was a popular line in Europe from that time but recently started fading .Which  led to the firm creating additional scents(I THINK THEY ARE UP TO EIGHT).If you look around the 'Bay  there is a seller in  New Jersey that is currently selling the line for around 10 dollars w/free shipping.Other sellers want higher prices.The line is currently produced in Italy under license from the original Swiss concern.I'm not sure if any stores in the U.S. stock this line but so far they are interesting products.In a few days I'll post a review on the Black.

I've not tried the Denim line. The original scent sounds very much to my liking. Once I dwindle my existing A/S stock pile I'll give it a try...
