Just got in from a local antique mall. Anyone remember when AVON would sell all their different aftershaves and colognes in bottles that looked like cars, boats, trains, conductors lamps, etc? Well, one vendor had about a dozen of them. Really cool to see stuff I remember as a child.

ebay has a countless number of those Avon Decanters. You can get them pretty cheap.

These came with the original aftershaves in them. Unfortunately, I now seem to be developing a skin reaction to something in the aftershave.

I like the scent of Wild Country. It reminds me of Clubman and goes well with my Canoe.

I started picking up a few. Not too crazy about Wild Country. Tai Winds is growing on me. I just picked up Oland and Tribute and those seems like something I'll like.

I have Wild Country which is very close to Clubman and it is ok, but the Spicy and Brisk Spice are my favorites so far, very similar to Old Spice.
