Movember Lot #2 is LIVE! Make your bids here!!

2019 DFS Movember LE - Viking Shaving Brush. Read more here!!

Worth the 20.00 a bottle? All day staying power? I dig American Blend as a scent... but at 20 bucks a bottle better last most the day...

The old Fine aftershaves have the best staying power of any that I've used. They used to be $15, but ever since the price hike, there have been rumors that the scents are weaker. I haven't used a new bottle so I don't know if there's any truth to those claims. But for such a simple formula with zero skin goodies, the price increase doesn't make sense (scents?), especially if they are lighter in strength.

Good? Yes - in fact very good for the type of product that it is.   Worth it?  Not to me.  I'm partial to the Fine L’Orange Noir.  As far as minimalist aftershaves go, I think the Fine is very well done, but not "last all day" well done and not 20 bucks worth of well done either. I have a variety of splashes from other makers that are cheaper, that I like as well or better, and some of which have skin food as well.

I really like them. They smell and feel good and the scent lasts. What more can you ask for? haha I like Fine L'Orange Noir and Snake bite the most.

They're good from my perspective and the Orange Noir is closest think to TdH have encountered but partial to Pitralon

They are decent, but I prefer the Proraso green over them.
I have not tried them but you can’t go wrong with Epsilon for the price.

I like them a lot And L'Orange Noir is a favorite. Also Santal Absolut is very nice. In fact my very favorite. L'Orange Noir will last about 8 hours. Santal Absolut goes all day. American Blend is a stayer too. I just picked up another bottle of L'Orange Noir and I can confirm it is not as potent as its elder sibling.
I've not used any since the price increase but mine had remarkable staying power. The only one I have left is Sandalwood. Because it's so intense and long-lasting I use it only when I'm really in the mood to smell that fragrance all day.

I bought all of mine when they went for $14.99 I believe but I really like em. The ones I would and probably will buy again are Platinum, Fresh Vétiver and American Blend. The ones I'll pass on are L'Orange Noir, Clean Vetiver and the Lavender and Sandalwood ones.
