Just used it this morning. It has very good balm properties, the scent is Undecided
If you've tried their cologne and expect the same scent, don't bother.

Thanks. What does Undecided smell like?

Biggrin Biggrin To me, it smells like watered down, old, stale and not in the good way. Cologne on the other hand smells clean and crisp.

Johnny I see you used the splash in your SOTD today. What did you think? Did you get the Emulsion as well and if so what did you think?

Well, my order from Phil came in this morning so I decided nothing ventured, nothing gained.

All that have used the splash know what I'm talking about. It smells good with staying power, has a great menthol kick for cooling, but it also has a lot of alcohol in it. A little drying to the skin, at least mine.

After all that I thought I would try the emulsion. First bit of advise, shake like crazy before you squeeze some out. It does not take much, about the size of a large pea will do. Rub your hands together then have at it.

My first impression was the scent would cover up the after shave, but it did not.

My second impression was that this is going to leave my face feeling greasy, but it did not.

I really like both products and plan on using them on a regular basis.

Surprising! Did you feel they had the same scent?
Glad you liked it, EdT is in my rotation for good.

They smell nothing alike to me. That was why I was concerned the emulsion might cover up the after shave.

I believe you described is as stale smelling, I would call it musty smelling. Kind of reminded me of my Grandfather, if you know what I mean.Smile

I love the cologne but am not wild about the emulsion. Although I have it, I only use it rarely. I agree about the smell of the emulsion being nothing like the cologne and while I love the cologne's scent the emulsion is closer to Johnny's description, in my opinion.

For me, way less than pea size is enough. Much more than that and it takes forever to work into my skin and becomes tacky.

Overall, the cologne remains one of my favorites while there are much better pre and post shaves out there than this emulsion.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the "AI" Johnny. I have often considered it, but as yet never acquired it...
