Aqua Velva Ice Blue for sure. To be honest, I could use it exclusively. It's a favorite. My second choice would be the Mennen Skin Bracer.

For me it would be a very tough call between Aqua Velva or Skin Bracer, but I would probably have to go Skin Bracer if I had to choose one.

Between Pinaud and Aqua Velva....however, Pinaud Clubman crosses the finish line first.

Haven't tried Skin Bracer, so it's between AV and Clubman. Clubman is more of a novelty in my den. I like to walk out of the barbershop smelling of this stuff, but it's not a scent I use daily. AV I can use on a regular basis.

I started wet shaving in 1962 using Mennen shave cream and SkinBracer. Although my wife complains that I smell like a pine tree when I use it, my vote still has to go with SkinBracer. I do like the scent of Aqua Velva, and used it in the 70's. I don't care for anything Pinaud

Pinaud Clubman for now, mainly due to SWMBO likes it. "If momma's not happy, ain't nobody's happy" or "Happy wife, happy life".  Biggrin

While I wanted to pick Clubman, I picked aqua velva because anytime I smell it it reminds me of my grandfather, etc. plus its not a bad performer either

It hurts my feelings to see Clubman not get a higher ranking Sad

I've become fascinated by the different human reactions to scent.  There are scents I love that others don't like and vice versa.

Tabac is the best example of that - love it or hate it.

Speaking of Tabac, my latest purchase was much tamer than before.

Clubman Pinaud for nostalgic reasons. I remember my dad.

I don't know the scent of Aqua Velva and Bracer. I should grab a bottle one of these days.

It was a tough choice for me between Clubman & AV.   I like the sting and the stink (ok the smell) of classic Clubman & it's my dedicated aftershave for Clubman Friday. Both are great finishes to any shave. Yet the addition of menthol pushed me to go with AV if I needed to choose just one.

I vote Clubman. Top of my list, but mid on the wife's list. I use it once in a while.

Well I bought some AV. At first I liked it, but then it smelled like a nursing home to me, not what I want to smell like. Skin Bracer smells a little to much like medicine. So my vote is still for Pinaud Clubman! Thumbup

My vote is Clubman Pinaud Aftershave Lotion.

However I haven't used Aqua Velva Ice Blue because this item cannot be shipped to Australia because of the US International shipping crap laws.

I can get this after shave below shipped to Australia from Gifts&Care
