Reviews of Grafton

Highway robbery!!! Grafton after shave is great. It is my signature after shave after three passes with my double-edged razor. As with the aftershave, the opening of the fragrance is tonka, lavender and a bright juniper--the father of Le Male by Gautier. But, after half hour, the Grafton fragrance is a dud. It's nice. I like the incense, but it is too mild and most of the notes vanish. Too quiet and close to the skin. A bit synthetic as well, like the Le Male version in the stores right now. Zero projection. I'll stick with my Grafton aftershave and follow it with Mr Taylor's of Old Bond Street cologne, which resembles Grafton. I'm glad I only purchased a sample of the Grafton fragrance. This fragrance vanished after an hour. Do not waste your money. If you want a similar barbershop fragrance, get At the Barber's (which lasts for hours) or Mr Taylor's.

I can smell only some cognac scent . Scent is quite mild and disappear very quickly (for me only 5 minutes). Maybe this is classic but I don't like it does not stay at all.

This cologne has a wonderful clean soapy smell with plenty of green layers...slight citrus but this doesn't stick around any longer than ten minutes ...The problem for me is that this cologne needs more balls and to say I'm grafton ...poor projection and longivity ..i get around 2 hours seems shy of who it is and shouldn't be because it has potential to be a star just needs better projection of its notes (maybe more oils used ?). I use this with grafton shave cream and spray this cologne a few more times than I should to get sum oomph and projection. I like to smell my cologne in the car going to work but by the time I've parked up I'm deep into dry down stage (bout half hour drive) love the fragrance tho

This is my idea of a classical gentleman's barbershop fragrance. It feels clean, crisp, and timeless. I often hear compliments by associates that it reminds them of something their grandfather would wear--and not in a derogatory way. The scent is certainly a classical and nostalgic one. It is my favorite of the Truefitt & Hill house.

On my skin, longevity is good, and projection is fairly strong.

I find this to be an appropriate fragrance for a gentlemen's night out, or (in moderation) at a business meeting. It certainly evokes an expression of gravitas.

Easily one of my favorites.

Nice traditional English gentlemen's cologne but the party's ove after a few hours.

We've arrived back at the English barbershop: a little fruit and light florals on top of anise, wintergreen (?) and sweet spices. This is very sweet, but it's also well-balanced, and nothing sticks out at me in excess. It could be one of few barbershop fragrance that I really like, and I think a big contributor to this is sandalwood...just a little bit of Egoiste underneath everything else. I almost don't know what to say because so many of this genre involve me complaining about them overdoing one note and spoiling what seems like it should be such a conventional, no-brainer scent. It has some of the same dusty, moderated sweet spice as in Trafalgar, but it's in much stronger company here with the woody notes. The one drawback here is that there's a little smoke in the base which isn't terribly well done, and has some of the waxy, oily character of Preferred Stock, but it's hardly noticeable.
