This is a Pinaud product and was a staple at the old barber shops, though most of the bottles I saw never had the seal broken - too expensive to use on clients and only for sale. At $2.00 more than regular Clubman, it often was more decorative than profitable as it was too high-tone for a lot of guys. Special Reserve [...] has a strong manly scent. In fact, the scent has the hallmarks of expensive cologne. For me, Clubman is a special treat and I use it on special occassions.It is, however, an assertive and lasting scent. It should be applied with fingertips along the underside of the jawline. As with higher end products, splashing this product on to the full face would be too much and dad would probably tell you that you smelled like a Frenchie..Clubman Special Reserve is not similar to the traditional Clubman in any way. Despite it's affordable price, Clubman Special reserve is indeed special and was designed as a designer boutique type of fragrance. It should be used like a designer type of fragrance and NOT splashed on like a cheap washy after-shave.

Verified Buyer

  • "Russian Leather" scent
  • Great zing after shaving

Best Uses

  • Daily Use

Comments about Clubman Special Reserve, After Shave Cologne, 6 fl oz:

Special Reserve goes on overpoweringly strong, almost medicinal. It quickly dries down to something far more subtle, sophisticated and interesting. I am told it a classic "Russian Leather" scent in the spirit of "Knize Ten."

It is inexpensive, but it is not a cheap scent at all. Nor is it for everyone. It lasts a long time--8-12 hours--and the drydown keeps it from ever getting "old."

It is ghastly the first time you try it; amazing the second time. So give it a chance. At DRUGSTORE.COM prices, why not?

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery was as promised, but that was just "okay."

There are plenty of vendors who get the goods out the door faster than drugstore.com at similar shipping costs.

Comments about Clubman Special Reserve, After Shave Cologne, 6 fl oz:

Overall its a good aftershave, the smell can be overpowering at times. It is best used in moderation, not everyone will be a fan of the way it smells. As for relief after shaving it gets the job done and has a nice kick as it hits the skin. I gave it a try because everything else from clubman is excellent.

Service and delivery comments:

The delivery was super prompt. I have was very happy with the service.

          No, nothing like the original Clubman, but that's why I tried it, and I'm glad I did. Strong musk, earthy tones, powerful at first but mellow nicely. Gotten compliments from this more than once. Reserve for special occasions, but could be daily use. Apply a little at first and then add more if desired.
