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.

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

          Unlike the original Clubman scent, this one is heavy. The comments from others as it was passed around was it reminded them of Avon cologne or Old Spice. For some it's probably fine. It's not expensive, though, so worth the gamble.

                A few years back, I had switched to the classic double-edged (DE) safety razor for shaving, making my own shave soaps, and I was looking for something that wasn't too harsh...

                The original version of this scent was the starter, then I switched to vanilla. Now, I have a regular "rotation" depending what mood I'm in when I finish shaving.

                I love the classic scent that reminds me of the barber shop I frequented while in the Marines. I'm 35, but I love how these scents work across the generations; your grandpa would remember using this stuff and now it's used by 20-somethings!

                Definitely worth a shot if you've never tried it. Quick burn, followed by an all-day scent that is always pleasant.

                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.
