    Don't know if I can get any of the two mentioned above here in Ghana. Most shops here sell the quite popular or well known brands. But thank you anyway.

    Terre D'Hermes leaves a beautiful trail. I have followed guys in the supermarket for that very reason.

    +1 for each of these. TdH leaves a great scent but only the EdT and Parfum - not the aftershave.

    The Dior in the aftershave form is very good for moisturising the skin after a shave. I used to use this a few years back. The scent is manly enough and very cologne-like.

    Basenotes confessions, lol.

    There's always good ol' Brut. Polo aftershave or several squirts of Green Irish Tweed maybe? I need to sniff some of these recs so far. I've sniffed Tdh, a classic smelling scent a bit. Really fresh. Worth seeking out a sample. It's pretty orange-y though...almost to the point where it takes away from that classic, 'manly-ness' of it, imo. It's still pretty masculine though. The orange isn't too sweet, it wants to be but it's not...it's tangy, fresh, a bit soapy. It's a pretty good balance.

    Any vetiver based fragrance should do it. Try Creed-Original Vetiver or Dior Vetiver from Privee Collection.

    Try out some Gillette Cool Wave aftershave...very very nice smelling stuff, and very long-lasting! It will get noticed.

    My first reaction as i tried first time Davidoff Original from the 80's : this is like the classic aftershave type, very masculine fragrance. Surely leaves a trail.

    Thanks,but i'm not looking for an aftershave....just looking for a cologne as manly as an aftershave (soapy, strong, crisp, sharp, boozey....etc) But thanks anyway, will try it someday.

    Aqua Velva -- a reasonably strong application of it. But only if you actually want "aftershave." Alfred Sung Hei is an impressively improved rendition of AV - well priced, too. Both are definitely worth a try.

    You should really check out

    Histoires de Parfums - 1828

    It's an edp but it has, altough beautiful, rough and very manly aspects like a real refined aftershave.

    Certainly get a sample!

    Rive Gauche is a classic barbershop feel. I also like Santos Cartier Concentree, it has a more manly sandalwood vibe.
