I ordered a sample of Osage and Lucky Tiger from a sample shop and WOW what a kick. I'm used to Barbasol Pacific Rush (and my wife's nose is rather sensitive) and this has an even bigger menthol kick then it. My face feels like it's -20 degrees. It's awesome!!!

Excellent stuff. I found my big bottle at a local beauty supply for $4.

I've checked at Sallys and they only had Clubman (which I love but Ashley hates). She says it smells like "old man" and I tell her that I am an "old man".

It wasn't a Sally's & I don't know the name right now. They cater to African American women & sell wigs. Out of about 2,000 sq ft they had 4 shelves about 3 feet wide of shave gear AS & talc. When I checked out they told me I was the only guy to actually buy something in there.

Yep. It's right on the corner next to a Region's bank.

Osage is great. I use it as a hair tonic too.

I'll have to check it out again. I stopped in there about three years ago (before I started DE shaving and had developed shaving sickness) and remember it being a large and crammed establishment. Basically just stuck my head in the door to see what it was so I didn't look around for shaving stuff at the time. My office is only about 7 or 8 miles so I may have to devote a lunch break soon to check it out. Thanks

I use Osage Rub and Alcolado Glacial as a night time splash before bed after washing up. You'd think it would be counter productive to getting sleepy, but I find it refreshing and very relaxing.

Hey Brian, keep me posted on whether you are going to ship any to Dave or not. If not, or if you are going to have to make a trip to purchase some, I owe Dave a favor anyway, and I am a lot closer to Madison than you are. I'd be glad to ship him a bottle if they have any and I can probably get to Madison tomorrow or Friday. Just let me know.

You guys should buy some menthol crystals and make your own mentholated aftershaves. You can make it as cold as you want Cool I've gone through several bottles of mentholated Clubman.

Good idea Sully, I have some stuff called M Bomb that I got from one of the online vendors and I have yet to try it. Menthol Clubman sounds great. Gonna try it tomorrow.

Do you have menthol crystals?

If you are going to add menthol crystals be sure and use a small amount, it can take a while before the crystals desolve in the AS. It is easy to ruin an AS. I started off with about half of a crystal and added more over several days to get to the level of face freeze that I wanted.

This is a great place to order Osage or many other barbershop after shaves.
