    Default fragances with "shaving aura"?

    I sirs that fragances have a "shaving aura",(not powdery barbershop smell),for me:

    English Fern Penhaligon's and
    Jockey Club C&M.

    more options?

    L'Artisan Fou d' Absinthe
    Behemoth cut a slice of pineapple, salted it, peppered it, ate it, and then tossed off a second glass of alcohol so dashingly that everyone applauded.

    I second Rive Gauche; smells like shaving cream.
    My current top 10: Richard James; Clive Christian No. 1 for Men; L'Artisan Voleur de Roses; Creed Aventus, Erolfa, Santal Imperial, Virgin Island Water, and Windsor; Serge Lutens Chergui and Gris Clair

    Crown Perfumery's Crown Imperial. Very lemony/clean opening, herbal/wood/powder base.
    Supposed to smell like an "Edwardian barbershop." Well, I read that before I actually smelled
    it, so that might have something to do with it. But now you have too. The effect is
    convincing.

    I think all of the C&M scents give that shaving aura. Particularly the vintage Greenbrier if you can find a bottle. The new reformulation is not good in my opinion. I think Blenheim also does this
