Hey gents! I got my hands on another Bay Rum, so it’s time for another review. I got this one from Michael over at Grandad’s Old Fashioned.
It comes in an amber glass jar with a white plastic screw top lid. The label is the same style label as his pomade does, just a single wrap around label. It’s basically the same layout as well. White and cream background, with “Grandad’s” in the signature writing and in the circle behind it are the rays and “Old Fashioned Bay Rum.” On the side of the label is a little blurb about this bay rum and the ingredient list.
As soon as you unscrew the lid you’re immediately met with an awesome bay rum scent. This one literally smells like rum, so be careful when you use it. I’m not kidding, it smells like spices rum, along with a little bit of extra cinnamon and a hint of bay leaves. And I really love the scent of this bay rum, one of my top 10 for sure.
Now this one doesn’t have the stopper lid with the small hole in the center for easier pouring. So you have to be careful when pouring some into your palm, it can run all over.
When I poured a little bit into my palm I really got a good whiff of the smell. And that made me like it even more then in the bottle! I can’t wait to splash this stuff on my face. The color of this bay rum is a bit darker than your average ones. It’s more of a spiced rum color, kind of a medium brown.
Once you rub your hands together and splash it on, you know your money was well spent. This stuff cools, and invigorates your freshly shaven face. It doesn’t really burn all that much like some aftershaves do, just a slight tingle. The feel of it as it dries is even better than when you first splash it on.
After a few hours of it on I could still smell a slight hint of its scent. And I got quite a few compliments on the smell of this aftershave. The scent of it on is really nice, and also not overpowering in the slightest. It also leave your skin nice and smooth after it dries. I’m really digging this aftershave.
I used it a couple days before I got all my shave stuff from Jeff and I used it with that stuff this morning. And I have to say that I really love it, you guys have to grab a bottle of this bay rum from Michael. You can get it from his etsy;
Also check out his shave cream and pre-shave ointment to go with this bay rum aftershave. Reviews of the shave stuff to come straight away!
Until the next one
