  9. Re: Splash vs Spray bottles discussion - Pros, Cons & Preferences

    My thoughts mirror this mostly. I enjoy the tradition of splash bottles that’s rooted in the post shaving ritual and aftershaves, but these days spraying is 95% of my scenting.





    Thank you...

    Is that just for reasons of convenience or something less obvious? Only asking because you’ve mentioned owning thousands of bottles and your experience might lend some further insight.
