I sniffed a bit of Nivea "Deep" aftershave in the store a while ago.
OMG . . . people made this on purpose?

To add insult to injury, they stopped carrying Nivea's perfectly good shaving cream (with a harmless scent) to make shelf room for it.

I vote for Pinaud Lilac Vegetal, which smells exactly like Harpic.
Does it have anything that could possibly be mistaken for actual Lilac?
I like the smell of lilacs in the spring.

It took me a few tries to like Pinaud Clubman classic, but now it is in rotation with the others.
I recently got to try Clubman Vanilla. SWMBO and I both like it. It reminds me a bit of Mennen Skin Bracer, which is one of my favourites.

I also got to try "Clubman Virgin Island Bay Rum After Shave Cologne" - Nah. I have yet to find any product with "Bay Rum" in the name that I can stand.

I swim against the current.
Lilac Vegetal. Good.
Clubman Special Reserve. Good.
C&S Cuba. Really Good.
It's pretty clear that scents are quite subjective.

I too like Lilac Vegetal once it’s on my face, but right out of the bottle it smells like Jeyes Fluid. The one aftershave I can’t stand is Brut: I find the scent very sweet and cloying; in fact, it makes me gag.
