RIVER of GOLD brilliantine

Post by malocchio » Sat Jun 11, 2011 5:20 pm

from the legendary french perfume house l.t. piver (now owned by malaysians) comes "reve d' or" solidified brilliantine...feels very thick and dense on first touch,but rapidly smoothes out and penetrates the scalp to condition and moisturize...classic barbershop "blue" brilliantine /pomade scent without the customary blue tint..this pomade has a classy gold color....very nice hair product from paris, great scent and packed in a nice heavy glass jar with a sturdy screw cap.....

Looks like it's scented vaseline with some lanolin in it.

most true pomades are not very far off from the vaseline formula

Wow, didn't realize that. What's it like to wash out of the hair? Brylcreem is pretty tenatious I imagine this stuff is absolutely immovable.
