I'm eager to try the new Wm. Neumann & Co Aftershave Splashes. I'm going to order a bottle of either the 1911 or the Signature 1907 this weekend but I'm having trouble deciding between the two. Wondering if those who have tried them could weigh in. Both scent descriptions sound great. My concern about the 1907 is it will smell to much like Sandalwood (Which I Don't Like) and my concern about the Signature 1907 is the scent will be fleeting. Thanks for the input!

they both smell nice in their own right. I went with 1911 for my first order. a multi-scent sampler is available from Bill & co. for about $2. + shipping. that may help you decide which way to go. Some are rather unique, like the "peppermint and clove", or "old fashioned soda", which smells just like sarsaparilla ! I like the way 1911 leaves my skin feeling. scent doesn't stay strong* for very long, fades to lightly after about 4 hours on me. not what I would exactly call "fleeting". (*nothing more subjective than trying to describe scents). the "problem" I have, is that I like them all ! maybe get the sampler first, then decide. or get one or the other, and get the sampler while you're at it. heck, I'll go out on a limb here and suggest the 1911 for starters. I don't get sandalwood much in the 1907, if it's there, it gets attenuated from the other oils. the only thing to do is test drive and see how it measures up after actually putting it on YOU. don't depend entirely on what it smells like in the vial. if you like classic,"old timey" scents, you're bound to find something you like about the 1911 OR the 1907.

I personally prefer the 1911. My top three Neumann scents are:

1911
Heartwood
1907

Thanks for the input guys. I'm leaning towards the 1911 and a scent sampler.

I find both the 1911 and 1907 to be wonderful. To me 1911 has a "sweeter" barbershop smell than the 1907 which is a bit woodsier / spicier. Describing scents though is a difficult task at the very least. Both are wonderful. Heartwood is also nice.

You really should try the soap as well. My face always feels wonderful after using it.

I bought the 1911 and found it to be a bit too deep. The 1907 was brighter but the scent it faded into was not as good as the Heartwood. But yes, buy the sampler.

My bottle of 1911 splash arrived today. I'm a big fan of the scent. I haven't used it yet but I am very impressed so far. I ordered a scent sampler as well which Bill refunded my money on. I really liked the 1907 Signature and Heartwood too. He also threw in a full size Juniper Berry Bath Bar for free too! Great customer service.
