Has anyone used the Sebum Blue post-shave serum?  I am curious if it is worth the $375 price tag.  I placed an order for the purple based on the scent description and that it is well suited for warmer weather, being that I live in Florida.

I do not have the blue, but I do have the purple and it is very good.  It has a lighter feel than the gold.
Bear in mind that a big portion of the price is for the packaging with is top-notch.

I had the Blue Serum arrive a couple of days ago and now waiting on the soap. The oil is even lighter than the purple. The scent is gorgeous to my nose.
The higher price is down to essential oils used so I guess it's down to the individual to decide.
I have four serums and find it hard to use an AS splash now. I have an oily skin and it may sound counter-intuitive, but the serums do well in controlling that. My skin produces oil faster after using an alcohol splash. Worth every penny to me.

Can someone please post a photo of the ingredients label of Sebum Blue, so we can see what's in it?

Good point!  There better be some fancy stuff in that bottle for a $375 after shave.  That said, I am open to it if it can be justified that the Blue is superior to the $125 Purple or Gold.

The ingredients list reads the same for all. There is clearly a difference in thickness between the Gold to the Purple to the Blue, but it's also the different EO's being used.

So, is the Blue thicker than the Gold or Purple?

Ricardo, the Blue is the thinnest, the Gold, the thickest.

I agree with your thoughts completely, David.

I've been using Sebum soaps and serums almost exclusively for 4 months now.  My opinion remains as it was before.  This product line is superb and well worth its price, for me.
From a performance perspective, Gold, Purple, Latte, and Green are all exceptional in their own ways, and Blue is even better.
Each is unique in its own way, not just on scent but also by virtue of constituent eo and associated skin effects.

I bought the little eye dropper bottle full which is wonderful!

The soap is above average...the post-shave serums are where the product line shines in my opinion.

I pair Sebum Blue with Martin De Candre Fougere...a near perfect match!

I have the 1 oz eye dropper on the way. Can't wait to try it! I didn't order the soap, but I'll try it with my Martin de Candre.

Latte is my favourite at the moment, but I suspect that may soon change.

Chris has gone suicide on the blue serum. He has been around the block and not prone to exuberance

I’d be curious to see someone compare Grooming Dept’s and Sebum’s serums for performance, as both are oils but the price vastly different. (Scent is another matter, but I also think Mo has deliberately aimed for simplicity in this department when it comes to the serum.) So, anyone tried both and can chime in?

Funny you should suggest a comparison - as I have back to back side by side with Gold and GD Unscented over the course of 3 weeks - should I do a write up??
