Today I received 2 PAA soap & aftershave bundles - Dirt & Tombstone.  Both smell great from just opening the containers!

The other shipment was from PAA. It included PAA Gondolier AS & Soap, Mason Boutique Octane Soap, Through the Fire Fougere Soap, and the PAA brush cleaning soap.  I'm onboard with the Gondolier scent and especially the Octane (awesome scent), but I am really not sure about the Fougere.  This really smelled terrible to me from just sniffing it from the tub.  So bad in fact, I had to lather it just to see if it changed.  I even applied a bit to my face and it may be irritating to my skin along with the horrid scent.  I will need to try a shave with it, but this may be a super dud for me. My wife, daughter, and one of my sons did not think it smelled that bad (my younger boy agreed with me), but to me it smelled like paint or dried varnish!  It did feel very slick though and the lather whipped up very easy for my brief experiment.  Well I may be batting .500 today, but since all the others to date have been fine.  I guess not every purchase is a home run!

The aftershave complements the soap well.  I found the soap has a more mild scent strength, while the AS is a bit stronger.  IMO this scent overall is more mild then the other PAA products I used.  I think a fresh Cedar note stands out the most over time when wearing.
I hope this helps.

Yeah, I agree.  I think they make quality products.  Tomorrow I will break out the Dirt.  It is a unique scent, but just from smelling the puck, PAA nailed it.  I haven't cracked out the AS yet and will wait for the shave.  I favor these types of fragrances.  I am always looking for something different.

If you are looking for something different then you nailed it.

Be well and enjoy wet shaving
