Fellow nookers.
I have a question for my fellow shavers that like bay rum scented creams/soaps. I realize that scent is a personal thing. What is your go to bay rum cream/soap? Which do you think smells like authentic bay rum?
I’m considering captains choice or extro cosmesi, but am open to other brands. Thanks.

Extro is authentic but extremely mild. I'd go with the Captain!

Full disclosure: I'm not a huge bay rum fan but I really like one semi-bay rum shaving soap made by the other captain: Captain Fawcett's Scapicchio's Tallow Shave Soap.

English made Captain Fawcett's Scapicchio features a rich and unusual "fig, olive and bay rum" scent combined with the outstanding tallowate enhanced performance of a triple milled hard soap.  It's somewhat difficult to buy but is currently in stock at Bullgoose (aka The Enabler) in a classy wooden bowl or a more economical "refill" puck.


As for a bay rum after shave for this not-a-huge bay rum fan, the one from DR Harris is hands down the best IMO.  Check out DR Harris' typically simple but epic quality ingredient: Alcohol Denat., Aqua, Pimenta acris leaf oil, Eugenol, Pimenta officinalis leaf oil, Cetrimonium chloride, Limonene, Linalool.  The Enabler can provide you with this product at an especially favorable price this week.

Here are photos of all the Bay Rum soaps and creams I have. Each of them is beautiful in its own way. Most of all I like "Chiseled Face"

Mystic Water Bay Rum is quite a different interpretation of this scent. Not much clove to it, which I prefer.

Celestino, right on. +100

My 3 solid discoveries this year - fast was one of them. MW Bay Rum is fantastic. She vies with Stirling, Sir Henry's, and B&M for the gold for me. I also like Mike's, GD Lemon Bay, and Turtleship
