    Thanks for the input, guys. I went ahead and snagged a bottle, mostly based on the Badger and Blade review. I have to say I'd be pretty disappointed even if I'd paid considerably less.

    D. R. Harris Pink aftershave

    I've heard some really good things about this stuff. I'd really love to try it out, but US $30 for an aftershave I'm not sure I'll like seems a bit steep. Also, people are pretty unanimous in...

    The first thing that came to mind when I sprayed my sample was "egg nog". That's probably because the only time I have any contact with spiced rum is in egg nog, and the combination of rum and...
