So up here in the great white north you can hardly go to a place that has shaving stuff without running into this stuff

[Image: IMG_0065.JPG]

AV Original Sport, and guess what, unless you live up here or visit, you cant have it.

Why ?

well i guess for some reason only we make it, or its only made for our market, not sure why its my favourite of all the AV scents out there......

but it got me curious what do other places have that we cant get, our american friends, or our buddies in the UK how about the Eastern European, or Asian members (Mandom, ga head rub it in) nows your change to grind a gear, kick em while their down, and make a few people jealous.... creams soaps, blades, anything shave related im looking for

BTW i shipped some of this stuff before i knew better lol and got some positive feedback from the people i did

notice its fancy shmancy shatter proof bottle, i thought it was just plastic, but well the proof is on the label

Barbasol Pacific Rush is fairly limited, right? I absolutely love the stuff, nice and chilly and minty.

The dollar stores here used to keep the barbasol A/S but i dont see it anymore, instead some no name stuff that is a brut rip off something else ripped off i think english leather, and the last one is a shultan original old spice, but its made at the shultan plant so its actual old spice i still dont like it though lol

I took out 20 bucks one day thought i would try all the cheap stuff i scoffed at bought a bottle of AV Ice Blue, OS (in pic above), Brut, accidently grabbed a lectric shave(Anyone want it ?) Skin Bracer Original, and Old Spice Classice, the Skin bracer and AV OS are the only two i liked.... the AV does a great job if i have a rough shave in getting my skin feeling great in no time too

i got it all for under 20 bucks, even had enough for a Timmies Tea... was dissappointed i couldnt find any clubman, or barbasol.... and english leather i think,... but i had a lot to play with for a while

hahaha someone get Teiste a Donut !

OK, this is just not fair! Someone did not ask you for the bottle, and someone will not get it, because someone will not ship it. I really don't want this, I would hate it if someone didn't offer to not ship it to me Tongue

Look at them advertising that plastic bottle like it's a good thing!
Eastern Europe has a whole undiscovered treasure full of shaving products and a lot are surprisingly good.
Barbon and Alpa to name a few. Russia and Asia must also have a lot of hidden gems waiting to be discovered. At least this leaves some for us to discover in the future.

yeah i used to hate the plastic,... but ive dropped some bottles in the store,... and came to appreciate the shatter proof bottles,.. they have a certain charm once they dont break all over your feet and the old woman next to you holding the garden sheers

How does it compare to Pacific Rush? Pacific Rush is admittedly the best Aftershave i own and at $1.95 a bottle, it's also the cheapest. Everything else I've tried pales in comparison to the Rush

If you have a Dollar General store in your area, you can have all the Pacific Rush you want. Last I saw it was only $1.75 a bottle.

This is an interesting thread for me because lately I've been trying to get my hands on European Aftershaves. Williams Aqua Velva, Mennen Green Tonic, Palmolive Power Of Nature, and some others. I love collecting aftershaves and now my attention has turned to obtaining tough to find ones like the one you pointed out. For the next four months my time on the nook, and my shaving hobby in general is on hold while in the police academy but once I'm out it would be so cool if I could work something out with you for a bottle of this.
