Pinaud is most known for Clubman (available almost everywhere), as well as Lilac Vegetal and their Bay Rum. But they make many other varieties as well - I'm a big fan of Citrus Musk (for warmer months) and Vanilla (for when it's cooler.)

So what is your favorite?

Special Reserve for me, followed closely by Clubman. Lilac Vegetal just doesn't doesn't work for me.

I'm curious to hear some more people weigh on in this as well. The only one I've ever tried was Lime Sec which was found at the bottom of an old closet. It was a little much for me, my girlfriend also commented that it made me smell "like a cake." Citrus Musk sounds very intriguing though. I haven't seen or heard of many of these before so I'll keep my eyes open for them from now on.

Only one I've tried is their Bay Rum, so I guess my favourite would be that. Biggrin It's a nice one.

Special Reserve for me. It is a complex scent that I really enjoy.

Citrus Musk is really nice, it's up there with Vanilla for me. It's worth a try, especially during warmer months.

Eau de Portugal for me, works fine as an aftershave, great scent but it does not last long.

Well I tried Citrus Musk, and my gf and I both agreed that it smelled too much like "bathroom", aka Arko. Oh well, back to trying other stuff. Rolleyes

Special Reserve, Clubman, Eau de Portugal, and then Quinine. All are good, but the SR is superb.

Guy's, if the scent of your aftershaves seems a little much cut em with 25-50 percent witch hazel. It'll tone down the scent plus you get all the benefits of the witch hazel. I mix mine in a seperate travel sized bottle with a flip top cap. By the way Virgin Island Bay Rum is my favorite.

Lilac Vegetal is my favorite, despite a bad first impression. Classic and Citrus Musk are nice as well.

Clubman, special reserve, Bay Rum, Citrus Musk, and I'm on the look out for Lilac Vegetal. In a trade I got what I thought was Tres Flores after shave but, it turned out to be the brilliantine which is for hair and is mineral oil based and not something I want to smear on my face after a shave. I thought it smelled great though.

I've tried several but my favorite is Clubman. I'm not meant to be "in the chosen" for the Lilac Veg and didn't care too much for the Vanilla. The Clubman just has that classic barbershop scent which I really like.

At last, I can vote in this poll! I picked up my first bottle of Clubman yesterday at Sally Beauty Supply, along with some Masters Bay Rum.

Bay Rum followed closely by the Clubman Classic. Those two are just barbershop, for me. But, the Lilac Vegetal is one I just can't get used to.

What a great suggestion. Thanks.

Classic clubman. It's become my everyday go to. By the way, how does one pronounce it? Pin-ooo (as loose), or Pin-o (long o)?
