What aftershave would you bring back?

My first choice would be Old Spice Fresh Lime. The stuff from the '60s and '70s, not the current product. I loved it in the summer, and well into the autumn. It was fantastic.

And, while I'm at it, my shaving cream of choice was the pink Noxema in the tube.

Ahhh, the good old days...

Yes, but I haven't had any since the 70's.

My barber used Pinaud, but only for his best customers.  He brought it out for my dad, but not for me.  Still in high school, I guess I didn't rate yet.  I loved the fragrance.  I think it time I picked up a bottle or two.

Brooks Brother 1818 cologne.  TexBilly gave me a sample years ago and It became one of my favorite colognes.  I wish I would have purchased 10 bottles before it was discontinued.  I think I bought my last bottle for about $20 from one of the online disount fragrance shops.

Shawn, I had a similar experience with the old Art of Shaving Sandalwood EdT.  It was, by far, the best Sandalwood fragrance among the many I've used.  I'm a light sprayer and I've never used a fragrance which consistently drew so many positive comments from those around me.   The new formulation, Sandalwood and Cypress, is excellent but does not equal the original.

I still have some, nothing compares, the finest Bay Rum ever produced, we are diminished without it. I only use it when I've been really really good.

So how's about we send a barrage of requests to Williams to crank up production again?  Get all of our friends and family in on it.  Make it a gift giving thing.  Like, "Hey Ron, what would you like for Christmas, Easter, Birthday, anniversary, Bastille Day...?". And tell them a puck of Williams, or to blast off an email to the company to re-up production.  Could be fun.  Maybe Williams will do it.  Or have Gus back in the warehouse find a bunch of remaining stock, and send it to us to shut us up.  Maybe...Maybe I need some sleep.

They would just hand us the standard corporate line about how much better the new crap is, or just ignore us. 

How about a Shave Nook branded special batch?
