  2. Re: Allure pour homme. First few minutes I get intense anise...

    It's odd because anise isn't listed in the notes, but straight away I thought about that spice when I sprayed Allure. I also googled it & it seems not to be a very common observation.

  3. Allure pour homme. First few minutes I get intense anise...

    ...anyone else?
    Really love the way it develops, but I was surprised how strong the anise came through for me when I tried a sample.

    Re: Barbershop Grail...

    Done.
  8. Re: Nothing I Do Gets Me a Close Shave Without Razor Burn or Ingrown Hairs

    An open comb is the closest DE razor you can get to a straight. The blade is exposed to a great extent on something like an Old Type.
    In comparison, how much of the 3,4,5 etc blades are exposed on...
  9. Re: Nothing I Do Gets Me a Close Shave Without Razor Burn or Ingrown Hairs

    Try an open comb like a Gillette Old Type or Muhle R41.

    Suggest a fragrance- modern fougére/aquatic

    I like Issey Miyake L'eau D'Issey & Davidoff Cool Water & want something light & modern to compliment those.
