I want to blend a couple of minimalist aftershaves.  I've read a number of recipes, but don't think they are what I'm after.

I want to start with an unscented splash.  What do I really need in a splash that is unscented?

Planned base includes witch hazel and everclear.  I will add menthol crystals, because I like the cooling effect.

Seems like it should have some moisturizing ingredients.  Maybe glycerin?  Maybe aloe gel?  Maybe both?

For a balm, I might just add the above splash to a good lotion - maybe 50/50.  

I'm looking for suggestions, but just the necessities.

I would for sure add some glycerin and possibly aloe vera juice rather than gel. It'll keep the consistency thinner.

I've ordered Thayer Unscented toner -it has aloe and glycerin already
I've got menthol crystals on the way
I've already got Fine L'Orange

This seems like a good test splash.  Can buy/add glycerin if it needs more moisturizer

Second batch will replace Fine with Everclear for complete unscented
